SalonPS forces out established hairstylists from assisted living facilites. In most cases these are older stylists.  Sure,  the current stylists are offered to work for Salon PS part time,  for a  non-liveable wage, with no benefits.   After my working job interview, which was conducted by an interior designer, not a hairstylist,  I was offered a 50/50 split commission with no guarantee of work, but I had to be there for at least three days.   My initial offer sounded beyond sub-standard, so they tried to entice me with a managerial position,  for a whopping two hundred dollars a month on top of my commision.  That would work out to about sixteen dollars a day for my management position.  This is almost laughable and I believe illegal.  
Additionally, the price menu for service states, that gratuity is included in the cost of service, which is fine, however the gratuity amount is not named, therefore, the stylist is sharing their gratuity with SalonPS.  For example, If I broke down the cost of the total service and named gratuiy at 10%,  well then the stylist should get 60% and SalonPS should get 40%.  In most states it is illegal to keep any portion of an employees gratuity.  

I implore any stylist that has any self worth not to work for SalonPS.   Instead, work for yourself, and manage your business well.  Keep everything up to state board standards, have an updated billing sytem (Quickbooks, Freshbooks) and be professional .  I have owned my own business and run it well for 15 years.  It pays off, trust me. 

Here are my final thoughts.  A good hairstylist will not work for SalonPS, and a good company will not hire them.  SalonPS will create a "revolving door effect" with stylist leaving their place of employment because they are not being compensated properly.  Additionally, I'm sure the residents at the assisted living facilities will not appreciate the "revolving door effect" either. Bad business in my opinion.

AUTHOR: sayusayme - ()

 the person who stated the complaints about salon ps is soooo right , you on the other hand must not be a stylist where we work, and i have been a stylist for many years, and this is a place for someone basically at a retired age,,lol i was also bamboozeled in on a managerial promise,,,, i am going to stay for  a moment ive did a year, i like my people , but managment is all about themselves,,, bump self worth....what about keeping your employees happy so you will not have a revolving door, again i have had a salon but AT THIS time i am financial set so im just biding time

#2 UPDATE Employee

I apologize that you were not a right fit

AUTHOR: Nevada - ()

I am an employee of Salon PS Nevada. We have 4 facilities here and I have to say that I personally love my job.  I have been a cosmetologist for the past 11 years and have worked in all kinds of salons such as fantastic sams, commission and booth rental.  Each have their downs, but with Salon Ps I have only found UPs.  The more I work the more I make.  They provide all products, most implements and my clientele IS guaranteed right out side the door!  The best parts are I am part of a TEAM that provides happiness and care for clients who have a need but are unable to go anywhere else.  I leave every night gaining more then money can buy, I leave with a sense of worth. 
Salon PS takes great care to provide upgrades to the salons for comfort and ease of the wonderful clients, to find just the right stylist with a high level of professionalism, personalism and skill! I can understand that a stylist who has never had the chance to work in a truly professional and corporate setting would be quick misjudge those who have chosen a different fork in the road for a career path. 
 To any stylist who is looking for more out of life then just a percentage and to gain that next buck, but to live a life that is filled with love, acceptance, and gratitude I implore you to apply for a salon ps near you!
