Counter manager very regimental
Skin care specialist (Former Employee) –  Hampshire26 March 2018
Based on my location, management was very regimental and not supportive. When suggesting ideas for events or to be more proactive it was “ already tried that, doesn’t work” so no moving forward with the times. Ideas that was used on clients to enhance sales was fed back to regional but not advised skin care specialist idea.
Pros
Allocation was a benefit
Cons
Stood around not being proactive, hours of Debenhams .

Spa Therapist
Spa Therapist (Former Employee) –  Midlands14 November 2017
I feel quite sad as used to work for company down south and had nothing butt good words to say about company. Unfortunately since moving to Midlands i got a job as a Spa Therapist and felt so let down by management, very unsupported, uncaring, i wouldn't recommend working for them up here. You work very hard but don't get appreciated.

Skin care specialist (Former Employee) –  Leamington Spa, Warwickshire5 September 2017

Spa Therapist (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London19 August 2017
Have flourished and grown so much in my confidence. Senior management need to be more motivating as can show a lack of empathy and understanding. They have a tendency to treat therapists as numbers not people. The training is fantastic!
Pros
Brilliant product allocation
Cons
Lack of support from head office management
