Glam App Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The Glam App is a community of hair, makeup and nail stylists.
Some employees are very unhappy with Glam App and say this:
Everything was a con. This was by far the worst company I have ever worked for. Constantly being belittled and yelled at. Forced to get coffee every single day for an ungrateful and disrespectful management team, no actual lunch break, no days off, no overtime, barely any vacation time but only AFTER one year of employment. The list goes on and on so just do yourself a favor and never work for this company.
Operations Coordinator (Former Employee) says"Typical day of work consisted of a 12-16 hour day. Always given the option to leave on time for your normal work hours but extremely frowned upon. Great concept and passionate leaders yet unhealthy work environment. Poor communication between peers and management. Cons: Discouraged to take breaks, low compensation, long hours, no benefits"

Former Employee - Manicurist says"I worked at The Glam App full-time for more than a year Cons: EVERYTHING ELSE! The company is run very poorly and the CEOs are rude and malicious. They don't pay on time, they take money from your tips and they are FAKE FAKE FAKE! They will say anything to get you to go to a job, like please go to the CEOs best friend for a service and then the person wont even know the CEO! So shady and weird!"
Former Employee - Operations Manager says"I worked at The Glam App full-time for less than a year Cons: Not sure where to begin. Since I was only there a short while, the training period itself consisted of the senior employee (who I would ultimately be managing) training me on the "how to's" of an extremely outdated and inefficient system. I am not sure how effective degrading your trainee is but apparently that's how they think training should be done. Coming from another app, I was shocked at how this company continued to work productively with this system! It's blatantly ineffective and management didn't seem to care. All they cared about which was not mentioned to me in my interview was someone to "manage the girls". All of the team which was only made up of 4 women, who were clearly self reliant since management does not help. Again I will say I was trained by my employee and not by my direct manager. Furthermore, one of the major reasons for my departure was the "transparency" they stated they gave me was ultimately an untruth. This position was to alleviate the CEOs from actually manning their team and they expected me to be available 24/7. On my day off, I had to leave a lunch with family to assist "my team". They expect one person to run the business alone on the busiest day of the business yet want their manager to be available to them. Business sense is something they are lacking and I do believe that to be their downfall."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at The Glam App full-time for less than a year Cons: Narcissistic and demeaning management, unattainable and not even explained expectations, verbal abuse to yourself and coworkers and even just every day people like Postmates or Vendors, the work hours, expect to work 10-12 hour days without overtime. They expect you to work even while driving, and you will be reprimanded by not handling something to the second. No Holiday time (1 get one vacation day for every 3 months, so 4 vacation days a year AFTER you've worked a year), no health benefits. So what do you get...absolutely nothing but the life and energy sucked out of you on a daily basis. Because you work on your days off as well, and be told how you should feel lucky to get a day....no reprieve whatsoever. The fact that that their turnover rate high, with employment timeframe of no more than 3-4 months says it all. That says a lot about this company, its culture, standards, and management."
Former Employee - Operations Coordinator says"I worked at The Glam App full-time for less than a year Cons: Too many to count! Operated by two individuals who lack the qualifications and business sense of how to run a company, let alone managing a small team. If you have any prior work experience, you will notice right away that they are improvising their roles as CEOs. It's like a child that tells their parents they don't need any help. When it comes to doing it, they don't actually have any idea, but because of their egotistical pride, they refuse to ask for a lifeline and end up making mistake after mistake until it's too late to salvage. If that were their only faults, I honestly wouldn't be leaving a review. However, they are shockingly disrespectful and incredibly demeaning to their employees. Expect to be running the entirety of the business while the bosses sit in their office discussing what they will be ordering for lunch, what music to play next and playing with their dogs. Yet, they will keep telling you how much they worked, even though they are 9-5 and you work 10-12 hours (with no overtime) and no time for lunch. Along with all of your other duties, they will expect you to get them both Starbucks every single day (which is not even in close proximity btw) and if you don't they will call you unkind and disrespectful to your face. They will make you take their own trash out and if you don't they will tell you that taking out their trash is your biggest priority and that it is the "foundation" of the business. This was said to us verbatim. I wish I were kidding. They will expect you to work on your days off without asking if you are available. You literally have no choice or liberty to make any decisions and it’s worse knowing that your direct leader would like to think that she owns your life, even on your days off. You’ll be expected to work until 9pm regularly (not a choice) and to work on your phone while driving! (they don’t consider that to be a safety hazard). Expect to be berated about your “energy.” If the bosses feel a little off or moody, they may blame it on your bad energy. They are 30 something year olds on a power trip and very insecure. To assert power over you they will make you feel like you are the dirt that is sitting atop the unclean surfaces in The Glam App office."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at The Glam App part-time Cons: Shady and dishonest with 1099 tax forms at end of the year. Undercuts the industry. Have to chase for payment on occasion. Takes a percentage of your gratuity."
