I worked at Regis Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Not many pros except atleast you know you will bring home a paycheck every week. You also get paid vacation which is only minimum wage. You do get free backbar and products for your station.

Cons

I worked at one of regis signature salons in a very upscale mall. They Still did crap that their lower end smartstyle stores do (I worked at smartstyle too) no receptionist this is suppose to be the top salon in the company. We had to play receptionist and cleaner. Go to meetings unpaid after hours.regis was even so scared about salon unions that they made us sign paperwork so we would not join a union which they later got sued for. They tried to say that we only get 5 days off a year, which was crap I had two weeks paid vacation and they were trying not to give it to me. In the end my my store had 19 stylist for only 12 stations it was a mess having to pack up each night and to make sure you didn't run late if you worked the morning shift. It just got too much I finally quit beforeI had to do another cad week which is when u work 12 hour shifts 6 days and give every client 20% off

    I worked at Regis Corporation part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It was great to be able to have time to do homework and whatnot when working. I became very knowledgable with the different products and hair and beauty in general. My fellow employees as well as my immediate managers were all great.

    Cons

    The regional and district managers are awful - they have a false sense of superiority and have no regard for subordinates. There doesn't seem to really be much stability in the company, and stores keep closing left and right, which does not bode well for their future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more consideration for your employees, as well as a more professional attitude in regards to gossip and cattiness.

    I have been working at Regis Corporation

    Pros

    Regis has great culture and people

    Cons

    Lack of HR structure and focus on home office employees. What we do at the office impacts the salons each and every day, and there isn't an emphasis on training and development. However, it appears that this may be changing in the near future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication, what is our vision? What goals are we all working towards?
