Re: How often do you work in your salon weekly?

Between my business partner and myself we work every shift. We just hired a girl to train to help out, but we are the major players at this time.

Re: How often do you work in your salon weekly?

We've only been open a month, so right now I'm here at least 4 hours a day/6 days a week. I had someone who handled Sunday's, but he's gone now so I'm looking at working 3 Sundays a month. Have 4 PT gals working and between them I have most open and closing shifts covered and should only have to work behind the counter 2-3 afternoons a week and Sunday. I'll be in and out all day because I have to know what is going on here at all times.

Re: How often do you work in your salon weekly?

Reading everyone's response I get the feeling that my salon must be doing terrible. I have one employee that works 13 hours a week and that's all the help I have. I can't afford to pay for more help. I'm sure there must be more salons that are in my situation. Business has fallen off the last 2 years and in Oct. & Nov. I need to pay rent, electric, not help. Who else is in this boat?

Re: How often do you work in your salon weekly?

We are the new new salon in town (opened 6 months ago) and have a lot of start up expense. I work 9-5 mon-fri and 9-6 on sat, then my husband takes the night shift of 5-10 mon-fri and the sun 10-4.

I've been here 5 years, if I can't pay staff at this point its time to close. I can make minimum wage anywhere with alot less headaches.

It's cheaper for me to pay a gal to work at the salon (7.25/hr) than to pay my nanny to watch my 3 toddlers while I work (9/hr).

Re: How often do you work in your salon weekly?

soon to be celebrating our 3 year anniversary at the end of next month. Just took 7 weeks off due to having my 1st baby I feel so blessed to have been able to do that. In the beginning I would have never been able to do that... I worked, worked and worked!! Now my new schedule is mon-wed 9-4 thurs & fri 9-2 and wed & thurs spray tans I will return in the evening to do for 1 to 2 hours and no weekends unless an emergency. Now things will probably change once busy season comes back around we shall see!

Re: How often do you work in your salon weekly?

I work 5 days opening until either 3 or 6 (depending) I have one gal that starts massage school next month so I am not replacing her to save some $$$ at this time of the year (we are seeing only like 40+ per day and we can handle that with one person)
