That How It Is, Here!

I was wondering around on Craigslist and looking at the salon/spa positions available for a motivated individual to seek work in this field. There were plenty to go around for a professional to find gainful employment in our beauty industry. Here is a good listing.

You’ve spent at least 1200 hours in education, Thousands of dollars to get trained for a career in cosmetology. Maybe even started your career in a salon but just can’t seem to get it launched. Somethings missing…..Well if you’re motivated, upbeat, and ready to make things happen, then Allure, A Michael Clopton Salon is for you!
We don’t just hire you and let you fall, we work with proven systems to assist you in building your career goals. Here are just a few ways we are different from other salons…

I called this seeking information on the position. “Can you give me the information for this Position at your salon, please”.  ‘Well tell me want you are looking for”. So I explained to him which he identified himself as the salon owner that I merely asking him about the POSITION. He said “It is part-time or full-time, no benefits, no wages, no insurance, no sick pay, Not even GAS MONEY!” He also went on to say “This is how it is here”. When a future stylist is coming into the professional and also when a veteran stylist is seeking employment they need to be compensated for their time. Commission just does not cut it in this profession any more. People are paying large sums for a beauty school education. And in the modern picture we all have to pay our bills. And commission does not cut it!

Jon Gonzalez who writes on his own website Hairdresser Career Development Systems Likes to shuffles the buck on the New beauty school student who graduates and I quote, “Sadly many new beginners fail to maximize their full potential, due to unrealistic career and earning expectations before they even give their new career a chance to grow, they want to run before they learn to walk. Many believe that graduating from beauty school will prepare them for a competitive and changing job market. “Yeah that’s right Jon blame it on the graduating student and the beauty school”.  Either way in this industry you have bills to pay and you need to be compensated for your work. And so lets all pass the buck to these new, non educated, brainwashed individuals and say,”That How It Is, Here!”
