How often do you work in your salon weekly?

A lot of salon owners pull crazy hours to save on payroll or are just control freaks and have problems delegating work to be done.

Since I知 in the salon frequently, I知 able to Recognize the strengths and weaknesses of employees. This helps me to assign work to a particular staff member and know that the work will be done correctly.

I知 in the salon 5+ shifts per week. I知 blessed with frequent time off for family or leisure and a staff that genuinely likes their jobs. We have 4 PT staff and 2 As Needed Staff members on board- All of which have been with us for 1.5-2.5 yrs.

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

This summer, as well as last summer, really make me enjoy the business. The last two summers, I have had college students doing their internship here. They have to work 320 hours, which gives me almost the entire summer off. I work 6 hours on Monday and 4 hours on Tuesday and that's it. I pay them $150 a week, (required by the school) and I train them on how to run a small business. Next year, my wife will be retired from her full-time job, and I don't expect to be at the salon hardly at all; that is if we are still in business.

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

Speaking of my intern, who was supposed to open at 10:00 today. I had a tux measure at 10:00 so I was there at that time. Well, my intern overslept and didn't get there until 10:45. Yesterday, I gave her the day off, so she and her boyfriend could go to a Twins game in Mpls. Too much partying all night and a hangover was inevitable. I told her one more screw-up and her easy internship will be over. They just don't understand how easy of an internship it is here.
