Thinking about applying at Star Career Academy?

From one instructor to anyone else out there looking for a teaching job.. save yourself the aggravation and apply elsewhere. This school lacks discipline and structure. Students do what they want when they want because the school is so desperate to keep the students they have. Half the time the "director" of your department will not back you and will often talk about you and other instructors to the students. And if you have a great head of the department like mine, she will often be completely unprofessional, disruptive to your class and be down right rude to the students. And if you're lucky enough to get a great head of department like mine, beware she will talk about night students to day students about how those students are "retarded" and "need to take xanex." So professional right?! These directors change grades for students just to get them to pass and they put in hours for students they favor just to get them out the door. My head of the department also got an enrolled student to pay HER car payment on a student's credit card because she sobbed to the STUDENT that she couldn't pay the bill that month. So professional, i know. And if you still are thinking Star may be the place you want to instruct at, realize that this school will never have enough product, teaching supplies or instruments that you need to thoroughly do your job. I am truly shocked that this corporation is still in business. And one last thing, job security is not an option at this school. They will smile and tell you all is dandy and no way are they laying you off, until boom.. Pack your stuff there aren't enough enrollments to stay. I wish I would have done my research before I took employment with this company because it is by far a complete joke. And be warned it is not just the norristown campus that is in shambles, all of the campuses all around are struggling the same way. And someone needs to let the surgical instructor know that after this module is over she will be getting laid off, they are no longer offering the surg tech program at that campus. But shhhh, it's a secret.

I totally agree!!! So glad I got out of there (Philadelphia Campus) the "Director of Education" Angela, is the most "Ghetto" person I have ever encountered!

She does NOT have your back!

And for Deena the "Director" well, she's a JOKE!! And all I can say is KARMA is a ***!!!

Royersford pa SUPERCUTS SUCKSSSS! along with the rest of them

i suggest none of you reading this go to supercuts. i worked for them and i can tell you they are bottom of the barrel. the owners pay their stylists $8 an hour and treat us like ***. they tell you paid vacation, that doesn't happen... you get no raises. no incentives. no nothing. and people wonder why they leave not happy... maybe if the stylists were happy, we'd actually care about your hair. but no, we bust our *** and get a lousy $2 tip. loooool. really people? shove that 2 bucks up your *** and the royersford store? loooool. biggest joke ever... their "manager" t.l gossips non stop... says who she ***ed the night before.. the girls a.a & m.c sit on their *** all day and make fun of you after you leave... and do what they want to your hair. so be warned, these chain salons are a complete joke. save your money & time & go somewhere reputable. or if you are A HAIR STYLIST READING THIS: dooooon't work for this company. you WILLLLLL REGRET IT!!!!!!!

People are delusional...and they fight tooth and nail to backup there beliefs. The only way to discern the truth is to look at facts.

1. Supercuts is a CHAIN. They work off production. They make slaves of their employees by paying minimum wage.

It is a Factory environment. THE ABOVE ARE FACTS. There are no benefits to working SC long term. You will not make more money as a Stylist and any following or people you get will not be good customers because SC has spoiled them for cheap haircuts.

2. You'll have to LEARN and pay for inferior schooling if you work for SUPER-CUTS. 2. The only way to make decent money doing hair is to Rent a booth.

It takes a long time, but eventually you'll have enough of a following to make it worthwhile. 3.

The second way to make money doing hair is to OWN the shop. That's it....

*** SUPERCUTS!!!

i worked for supercuts as a stylist for a few weeks, the owners completely blow.. they pay you $8 an hour and expect you to do a hair cut in 15 minutes. i just got fired because the day after we got robbed i refused to work... WOW! there was no register, no computer system and they wanted us to work!!! I'd advise you ALL! to not work for them or go to them!!!!!! in all honesty, for $8 an hour most people DON'T care about your hair!!!!!! I WAS AT ROYERSFORD STORE IN PA. so Stay away from these money hungry pieces of ***!!!

Horrible place for a hair coloring. She applied hair color all over my neck and she asked me to use Nail polish remover after going home, and they charged 56$ for this *** hair cut and Hair coloring. Got pissed of and didnt say a word, paid all money and decided not to opt super cuts from next time .

Very profesional!!!! I recomend.

Wow, I came in the day after they were robbed. They opened late, but were fully staffed.

Cash register worked when I paid, I even got a $2.00 off coupon for my next visit.. I've been a loyal customer there for years and so has my family

Hope you found another job in another industry!!
