Thread regarding Regis Corp. layoffs

Regis Layoffs 2017

I know that people are concerned but I heard from someone pretty high up in our corporate office that they planned layoffs but that plan was abandoned, so we are safe here in Edina.

After 8 years working with Regis they have stolen my vacation time refused to offer raises .. I was bullied by my senior district leader and my stylist one by one harassed until they quit I stepped down as manger just to get a break and the regional is more than aware of the problems but still hasn’t stepped in.. Regis is the worst place on earth to work they steal from their employees and it’s a dead end job

It’s what happens when corporations buy out salons all over the country that are making money. They give you BS how nothing will change in fact you’ll make more money. Then after the honeymoon phase they come in and bully everyone change everything and keep you in fear of losing your job. Regis deserves to lose everything

My salon is closing too. It's going to be switch from a TGF to a Smart Style. We just found out and everything is going to be changed by April 1st. My vacation time is supposed to start April 1st. As my supervisor am I going to get her she told me yes, but I'm not too sure about that. It's supposed to be at least two weeks paid vacation. I don't even know about signing the transfer papers either. I know they're just trying to find a strategic way to lay stylist off so they don't have to file for unemployment. It's just a whole lot of crazy things going on.

@kviuy7e... So I have worked for Regis for 12 years. You get minimum wage because that's not what you shoot for. You work to get commission which is a hell of a lot more.

Also don't give out your number because when you leave that is your time. They can call the salon. I've also made a separate fb for just hair.

Salons that are unkept and not clean are just the stylist fault. You let it get dirty, then I would hate to see how your house looks. The guests walk in and see how it looks immediately and make up their mind if your going to be good just plain on it your clean. So clean up after yourself (and yes its your job.) I have been managing many years, and I can tell just from attitudes why certain salons are closing.

they are shutting down approx. 600 salons throughout Regis. I am currently working at smartstyle in florida, and they just told my manager about our salon closing and they want us to sign the transfer that they sent us, in 48 hours after we got it. I'm sorry but I'm not sorry i will not sign something that i only have 48 hours to think about it. Plus the fact that we have to wait for our bonus since they decided to raise our pay a whole .15 cents.

Myself has not even gotten my paper for my transfer. But everyone else has gotten their transfer letters so I'm very irritated.

Regis kept some salons open when should've closed. these salons were either old and unkempt or new and unproductive. Regis has been making several changes to try to save some salons. However, rusty and unproductive salons are not worth keeping.

"Incapable haircutters"...um hello I disagree!

They're closing because of terrible operations management. I'm in Florida and this is my 2nd time working for Regis..the starting pay was still minimum wage..why hasn't the starting pay gone up??

Why do the managers still want to do hair and the district managers why don't they actually manage the salons/district instead of competing with the stylist??

Hairstylist start at min wage..this was the starting pay years ago..no mats for the floor..etc..why are they so ghetto and trashy? The managers compete with the stylist by not marketing and/or promoting, tips are old school..I've been doing hair for 6 years and I don't have one clients cell phone number in my phone. Smartstyle is gonna get it too..those new ipads will not help you. Clients think we're supposed to be accessible 24 hours a day..EVEN on my personal time..No we are not and operations need to act like they understand the threat that dealing with strangers every day brings! Trying to 've exclusive for Wal-Mart employees or trying to franchise when I My self would LOVE to own a Super Cuts or Regis but how can I?? They franchise to people who dont know nothing about hair but then they operational part fails because they start to forget!

For corporate office employees, it's coming. Premium franchised, other salons closing or being sold.....cuts are going to be deep in Minneapolis. Not sure how, not sure when, but the CEO doesn't give two sh--s about anything but shareholders and his own payout when he retires in two years. It'll be good for the stock price but not for much of anything else.

They're closing 250 premium salons. I heard the bad news today that my salon is one of them. I would abandon ship if I were you. The smart style salons are keeping this ship from sinking as of right now. I think the whole corporation is in BIG TROUBLE!!
