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.
