    I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The "workers" at corporate are great, friendly people.

    Cons

    CEO, keeps adding more C suite persons and laying off the people he expects to get the work done. CEO doesn't think MPLS people are smart enough to create apps or do marketing for a discount hair salon, so he wastes more money by opening offices in "Silicone Valley" (but actually Fresno) and Madison Ave NY for their marketing. Spends money faster than the company is making it - especially after selling off all the company owned salons trading it for royalties of 8% (or less in most cases).

    I worked at Regis Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great employees, and selling their profitable salons to franchise, who for the most part are much better employers then Regis Corporation currently is.

    Cons

    Regis use to be a great company to work for, however, the changes over the past 3 years have made it a miserable place to be employed. They pay low wages that do not compete with their competitors making it next to impossible to hire experienced, loyal employees or competent managers. No hands on education, minimal marketing for the salons. Knowing that stylists and managers are stealing money and product and not being able to do anything about it since there is no asset protection. Stay as far away from Regis owned salons as possible as most are one step away from closing once their leases are up.

    I have been working at Regis Corporation part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Met some amazing people there.

    Cons

    They close salons down , with very little notice. Have worked in two high volume regis salons that were out performing most of the salons in the area and they were both shut down without reason and with less than a weeks notice. The pay is very low, they care more about your numbers then you as a hair stylist. Little to no education, and all the salons are old and out of style. Hours are terrible , you have to work new years eve and day. Christmas eve and only get 3 holidays out of the year off. Long story short, if you work here, build your clientele for a year tops then get out.

    Pros

    The people. The stylists, managers, and field leaders were amazing.

    Cons

    Long hours, low compensation, no support from home office. Corporate came out to the market 1 time in the 11 years I was with the company, and made no changes updates to salons that were in desperate need of updating. Opened new salons in areas where staffing was already a struggle, instead of paying more and updating existing salons.

    I worked at Regis Corporation

    Pros

    Your co-workers are great - super friendly, talented, and hard working people. Free lunch - supplies for salads and sandwiches provided in lunch room. Decent office location - just south of the metro (for now). About average pay for tech support. Discounts on hair care products. Mostly relaxed dress code.

    Cons

    Management is completely out of touch - meaning they don't actually care what the work environment is like for the actual workers (both at the corporate office and the salons). High turnover from poor job satisfaction means you get stuck doing your job and the job of the people who left because they can't or won't back-fill positions. You're constantly expected to do more and more work outside of your job description. Instead doing the decent thing and hiring people full time they bring in contractors and just keep extending their contracts. They make promises of how things will be better and talk about upcoming new opportunities but never deliver. They give bonuses to the higher-ups and then immediately lay off workers. They don't invest in their staff or technology and it shows.
