|New Identities Associate Training Program
The plan we have designed, in conjunction with Summit Salon Business Center, to combat our ever-present need for new recruits is called The New Identities Associate Training Program : an 8-10 month intense mentoring and comprehensive educational program that creates a strong foundation for new stylist development. It is specifically designed to develop & polish new Cosmetology school graduates. Once the program is completed, that individual will be fully prepared to go on the Salon floor as a Level I Stylist. Here is a breakdown of the program...
Facts about the New Identities Associate Training Program :
In a recent study by Summit Salon Business Center (who monthly manage more than 600 Salon throughout the United States), Cosmetologists graduating from this program (on average) earn $10,000 more in their first complete year of working on the floor as a Stylist, than those 1st year Cosmetologists who went directly on the floor upon receiving their Cosmetology license. Not just $10,000 a year more, but nearly $10,000 a year more every year after!
This program gives the Stylist a clearly-outlined 12-year career path.
Once promoted to Stylist (upon graduating the New Identities Associate Training Program ) the individual is guaranteed an hourly wage or commission - whichever is higher! In other words, once that person is promoted to the floor, they will have a safety net of an hourly wage.
