Sally Beauty Supply / employee smoking

1 United States Review updated:

April 13, 2007 at 5:45 pm - as I was waiting in front of the sally beauty supply at lee and oakton des plaines, illinois I was appalled to see the very pregnant, very young sally clerk leaning against the building chain smoking 2 cigarettes. I know she worked there because she proceeded to go back in the store and sit on the window sill behind the cash register.

From my experience shopping at sally's, this seems to always be the caliber of clerks they employ. After this I will not be giving sallys my business.

    You need to realise that if there is a pregnate person smoking anywhere (although it is a health risck to her baby) it is not the right of her work place to dictate what she can and cannot do with her life. would you have been happier to hear that the work place would not hire her because she is pregnate? therefore forcing her to live off your tax dollar?

    It is that employee's right to have a smoke break. If she is pregnant and wants to smoke and risk the health of her baby that is none of your concern.

    Despite the fact that this complaint is close to two years old...I'd still like to say, "mind your own." Complain if she was rude to you, complain if the products don't work, complain if there was a neglected spill in the store. It isn't any of your business what that worker chooses to do on her break.

    You mentioned the caliber of clerks that Sally's hires. I'm not sure you can judge the caliber of a person by whether they're a smoker or not. And also, if that were the case, what do you expect, it's probably a minimum wage job at best?

    Sally Beauty Supply - Awful customer service, supervisor Sheila is rude and condescending
    United States

    Beyond disappointed by SallyBeauty 's lack of customer service skills, in particular, by one of their managers by the name of Sheila who has zero respect for customers and is condescending, rude and her character denotes inaptitude to hold any leadership position.

    Sally Beauty Supply - the company doesn't care about you

    You could be an awesome employee with great customer service skills, but if you don't sell beauty cards, items of the month, and extended warranties for your monthly quota, they will write you up and soon fire you.
