Beauty Advisor (Ancien employé) – Ottawa, ON – 9 avril 2019
I recently just quit this job. I worked here for 3 months and couldn’t handle it anymore. I was supposed to be a part-time employee, but was always working overtime. I was never able to get my 15 minute breaks due to always being busy. I would be on my feet for 10+ hours a day, and would constantly be in pain or exhausted. A lot of gossip and drama would happen, as all of the employees were young girls, including me. People would bring their personal life to the workplace, and constant gossiping was happening. Management was awful, as my manager would always ask about my personal life, ask me why I had doctors appointments, why was I seeing a psychologist, and if I was feeling bad because of my mental health, she would tell me I had absolutely nothing to be upset about. The girls would complain constantly about working here and would constantly bring each other down. I’d ask for a day off and my manager would make a big deal about it. If i needed to switch a shift with someone everyone would always be too busy, but I would always have to take someone else’s shift. My manager would sign my schedule off for me and change my shifts without telling me as well. Lots of toxic competition would happen and favouritism towards the DM and manager. All in all this was a horrible place to work at.

Beauty Consultant (Ancien employé) – Edmonton, AB – 10 octobre 2019
I loved working at Sally Beauty, my coworkers are lovely, in the locations I worked at least, but customers can be very hard to deal with sometimes and do not realize that we're only there to help and give them our knowledge about the products. Management seems to expect so much from employees when employees don't really get rewarded for the amount of work expected to be done. Also, I've worked at 2 locations for these company and the security isn't so great, or you might even say we don't seem to have any. But it's fun at times when you get to share your knowledge with ladies/men in the industry you might be in, in the beauty industry. Meeting professionals in the beauty world
