I have worked at Sally for nearly 9 years and progressed through the company to a high turnover store with decent salary. This job is not really for people who are lazy or not interested in hair & beauty. There is a lot of training to complete that you need to fit in around customers. Like most retailers you're expected to actually sell to the customers, it's not like working in a shop where you just stand behind the till and put through sales. The store teams are very small so it is a problem when people are off sick as it can leave others to work alone. All team members are expected to know how to open and close the store as managers have days off and meetings to attend the store obviously cannot just close on these days. If you're willing to work hard and want career progression this is a great company, but not so good for slackers and people that are inflexible with how, when and where they work.
Pros
Great discount. Free samples. Careers progression. Training programme
Cons
Lone working

when new staff come in to do with management they sacked all their staff no matter how long you have been there. Islington is the worst sallys in London to worked in. management really bad you don't have a chance to work up company always bring in people so a bit of waist of time if you wanted to build with a company this is not the one.
Cons
long hours trade discount is the same as satff discount so no benfits

There is a constant turn over of staff in the Southampton AB store which speaks volumes! Although the salary is good for retail, the products are nice but overpriced. Management are terrible bullies, you will be made to do their job role for less money and hassled as well as spoken to like a child daily to make unreasonable targets to keep them in a job, work in cold temperatures, clean constantly and will only be entilted to a half hour lunch break with no drinking break as well as work every weekend. AVOID like the plague!
Pros
salary, customers
Cons
bad management, rubbish breaks, targets

Long hours. Not the best place to work in. Customers are very rude and you can never call in sick as we are always short of staff. You get discounts but that's about it.
Pros
Discount
Cons
Long hours, rude customers, poor management

Well where to begin.... A typical day at work; your worst nightmare to be honest with you. You are put under so much pressure to do jobs that atleast 2/3 people should be doing. Underpaid for the amount you have to do. I do not know how previous/current employees have lasted so long. You get treated like your 2 years old, they employ you telling you about all the benefits and how amazing the company is. Well there really is no benefits!!! A few free samples of things that never sold well, thats about it. Company itself does well but I do not understand how, it is so poorly run within Head Office, the instore workers do amazing to put up with everything. When I worked here it was constant bullying, manipulation and your made to feel like your worthless. Go on holiday and NONE of your work will be covered NONE! Then you get the blame for being behind. I met some lovely people who worked there but funny that a few months later and they all have new jobs, no joke like 15 people from my department have now left or looking for new work! No wonder why there is so many vacancies. I learned nothing, management was shocking, no support, no help and no progession possible unless you kiss butt!! If anyone is offered a job here, I highly recommend you refuse. Especially at head office.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to list

This company is all about money and taking off staff. They give nothing back and there is no praise. There was lack of communication on all parts and they just take, take and take off you. They expect you to have some kind of super powers and to know how to deal with every situation even if you haven't been trained properly, I was never properly trained the Time I was in the company. They expect you to work on your own for long shifts and did not allow you to close for a break, so you could say that they also break laws. The pay is poor for how many jobs you are made to do. Unless you want to live a very depressed unhappy life then avoid this place at all costs. Trust me i was never happier than the day I found a new job.
Pros
There are no pros.
Cons
Long days, no breaks, poor minimum wage, no support, too many jobs to do, expected to know everything'

Recently started working for the company and can't praise it enough! Currently working with an amazing, friendly and enthusiastic team, all if whom have been very welcoming and supportive in helping me find my feet in the first few months, communication and advice between all members of staff has been very helpful and greatly appreciated. Pay is good and you can advance up through joining the businesses academy, which I cannot wait to begin as it not only raises your pay but offers a wide range of knowledge of the companies products to sell and customer service. The training of which I have already received has helped me improve my skills in customer service and helped me understand all perspectives. All in all I am thoroughly enjoying working with my team and for this company, Job satisfaction 10 out of 10!
