    I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great in salon team, head office are all friendly, regional managers really nice, training offered through out the year, good retail ranges to recommend to guests.

    Cons

    Pay schemes low, bonus's hard to achieve and when you do your taxed on them , constant policy and structure changes, 0 passion for hair very financially focused, lack of funding for salons that need updating, irregular motivators only when it's seen your in need of a kick, very little recognition for long standing employees, hours can be long, very little progression opportunities, used for your qualities with empty promises of further education or job opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Recognise your staff before you lose or demotivate them, don't promise and fail to deliver. Don't expect the world and give nothing in return, your salons need updating and not just in city centres

    I worked at Regis Corporation part-time

    Pros

    hr and admin very good. large company

    Cons

    poor pay
    little training for manager
    badly looked after salons - lighting poor- plumbing poor- health and safety poor- allows dogs at work in salons-no corporate image - bad stock contoll
    staff not motivated
    lack of educational motivation
    lack of technology
    limited pricing structure

    Advice to Management

    the management need to wake up !realise that create great salons they need to invest in their fixtures fitting decor to attract more clients- not just rely on their ethos of the 80s charm look.
    also hair nails and beauty holistic therapies are a package people expect it
    managers need a full training programme at start of a contract not rely on other people in salon to teach this
    monetry incentives need to improve

    I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I really love working for regis. I have been an employee for 6 and a half years.
    great career progression, you can go into management, education and also the creative team. Good training courses and a lot on offer. Also train managers in HR these days.
    Most salons tend to be in good busy locations do lots of walk in guests.

    Cons

    Unrealistic targets for comission.
    Goal post gets changed for monthly bonus.
    wage for managers are very low compared to othe companies.
    Use to get a lot of incentives where you could win holidays and gadgets, don't do this now due to cit backs.
    staffing tends to be tight in each salon so can be a nightmare when organising holidays.
    have to rely on tips and comission to boost your wage.

    Advice to Management

    Make it the way it used to be.
    Review managers pay when they ask, I've not had a pay rise in 5 years when I know the senior management have.
    Some salons needs to be invested in and refurbished

    Pros

    New leadership seems to have a clue but people need to get on board with the new vision. Pay was decent.

    Cons

    "old folks" don't like change, hard to make improvements and streamline process when people don't like taking on work that actually falls within their job description, found some people working there who had been there decades were hostile, closed minded, not open to change or making things better. over worked with no light at the end of the tunnel but there are a lot of people walking around that are literally not doing a single thing except for looking like they are working. Benefits are terrible and expensive

    Advice to Management

    Sounds like you are already cleaning house which is probably for the best. A lot of the employees I worked with were so old school and were resistant to change - get the negative nellys out of there because they are bringing down the other people that really want to work and see progressive change.
