Hourly pay is crap... bonuses are hard to master - They will fire you for any wrong move. However the flexible schedule is nice and almost outweighs the cons.

Pros and Cons

My manager outside of work was being very inappropriate with the male owner rich who is married. It was very uncomfortable seeing them lust over each other at a work party knowing they both had partners & that these were the people that I worked for. Also, lots of gossiping at this location, I stayed in my room & tried staying out of everyone’s way but Very exhausting, unprofessional & messy.

Pros and Cons
Helpful co workers & front desk, breaks, sweet clients!
Taxed on tips, unprofessional

I worked at European wax center for 5 years. Absolutely loved my clients. I became very close with majority of my clients and they are what kept me working at EWC. Management and the owners never seemed to care about their employees and only about the money we could make for them.

Pros and Cons
Coworkers and clients
Poor management and awful owners.
