I worked for Fantastic Sams three different times. I am not sure about their health benefits, It depends on the Franchise owners if they send you to their knowlegde classes on colors, perms and prouducts. The classes are great, good information. It depends on the franchise owners, if your hours will be divided between one or more shops, your schedule might not be the same each week, and you get sent home when it's slow. your down time might be spent cleaning things that ARE ALREADY CLEAN.
