SmartStyle Aka Regis Unfair termination of a very talented stylist because of legitimate complaint about a incompetent co-worker. Orange City Florida
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: its the truth!!
*Consumer Comment: They probably get a huge discount on thier taxes
*UPDATE Employee: Everything about this stylist is true
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: ex-stylist, I am telling you this salon has a problem.
But for the past three years Smart Style in Orange city Fl have tolerated a stylist who cannot perform her job. The salon has complaints daily about her terrible mistakes they let her get away with it because she is disfigured. I am a very talented stylist making the corporation over 30,000 dollars a year and because she has complained that I have been noticing all the breaking of the corporate rules she is doing and she has been getting into trouble because she is getting caught doing all the things she has gotten away with for the past 3 yrs.
I was told by my manager to write down all my complaints about her and tell them to my area supervisor JoC. Who by the way use to be a stylist at my salon and was good friends with this incompetent stylist
So instead of firing her because of negligence and incomptency and frequent complaints they made up another reason to add to the letter I wrote. Because the salon is inside a Supercenter we have to share a restroom with the store and I asked one of the guys cleaning it how much longer he was going to be because I was doing a color and am a diabetic i was needed to use it soon, he answered me with a snotty rude tone saying he didn't know he doesn't have a watch, and I said whatever and went back to layway.
One of the customer service guys asked me what was wrong and I told him how that man treats me and other people I have heard his rudeness in the past I said he should be reported to management. I went back to work. That incident is the reason she said she was firing me because I threatened their relationship inside the supercenter and that I wrote complaints about the other stylist which I was told to do by my manager.
My manager told me that I would either get my hours switched so I didn't have to work with her or they would transfer me. Then my manager went into the hospital and was gone about 2 wks thats when the area supervisor came in to fire me. She told me before I left do not discuss this with anyone because I know Regis owns everyone and I would never be hired at a regis salon again can you say black mail? I have contacted unemployment and I called her to ask what my reason for termination is and she said to put misunderstanding with a supercenter employee ok does that sound right too you? I have never been wrote up or given any warnings but they just fired me because Brenda doesn't like me.
Also she told me Brenda is handicapped and has been there for 3 yrs and she is going nowhere. What do you think the reason is they hang on to her she is a big liability and she makes them no money hardly especially compared to my salary I can't figure it out! I took a stand to protect the clients and the overall well being of the shops reputation which she has ruined mostly. And I get terminated for it.
