resolved to the customer's satisfaction
I went into the Supercuts Arvada store on December 1 2008 to apply for a job. After filling out an application, the manager had taken me back to her office and proceeded to tell me about company benefits, policies, procedures, services rendered, ECT... after that she had proceeded to inform me I was to be hired to replace a worker who had left on maternity leave. Assuming that what she was telling me was a job offer, I had asked her when she was looking for me to begin work. She had told me that I could not start my first shift until I completed their so-called Hair Stylist Academy Training but I could come in for a few days prior to "get my feet wet" and to learn the ropes on the computer. She had also proceeded to explain to me we could go over the technical haircuts so I would have an idea of what to expect when HSA rolls around. They had called it supposed "Pre-Training".
During this "Pre-training" period, she had proceeded to fill out all the necessary paperwork such as I90's and such so I could begin work on the first official day. Excited for HSA to roll around, I patiently waited out the 2 week waiting period and proceeded to complete the "pre-training."
What had started out as the "perfect" job had quickly evolved into a never ending nightmare since day 1. Each candidate was given a score sheet in which they had to pass at an 85 or above in order to be considered certified by their company standards. By the time day 3 had rolled around for me, my score was at an 84 with two days left and several points available to earn, I was considered "incompetent" and was asked to leave the training center as well as the shop. Come to find out, they had deliberately failed another woman as well, because she was black. The woman who let me go had the nerve to tell me that if I wanted to I was more than welcome to come back and apply again in another 6 months and I said "no thank you."
Supercuts-Regis Inc. is a scam. Don't buy into their so called job offers. They will only accept candidates if they are white and are robotic by nature. They will waste your time and leave you with nothing in the end. They are a cruel, cold company that will drain the life right out of you and sees their employees as nothing but a number and slave labor. If you do choose to work for a company like this, then be prepared to be brainwashed, stripped of your dignity and compensated way lower than what you are probably worth.
