Sorry to hear you didn't have a good experience working with us. It doesn't sound like we were the right salon for you, or perhaps that hairdressing the right career choice.
Thank you for the opportunity to address the issues you bring up.
Gloves are provided to protect from any potential skin conditions.
Apprentices are expected to attend training. We don't understand the remark about not enough focus on training. We've been training apprentices for almost 50 years and have salons full of stylists that trained with us, and competitor salons try to poach our well trained staff! Not a widely held opinion I don't think. If you train with us you will be very employable at the end. Any apprenticeship is an investment in your future. Not a time to relax.
You are correct ... as an apprentice working in a busy successful salon you will be kept busy and not expected to come to work to relax. But you will learn to be a successful stylist, if that's what you want. Any good reputable salon is a busy and dynamic environment, but it's not for everyone.
Breaks and lunches are provided every working day. Pay is as per the rates set by the Joint Labour Commission for Hairdressing.
