    Pros

    Free haircuts, friendly atmosphere, working outside (if it's your thing)

    Weather, Insects, obnoxious teens (kinda rare but if you're near a high school or middle school, you'll get that one or few that just repeatedly come back and try to start something)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Great Clips

    Pros

    As one of the largest franchisors in North America, one would think the company mighy be impersonal. It is not. Leadership is awesome. The brand is like a huge family that rallies to achieve success and support each other when life happens.

    Cons

    Great Clips is 100% franchised. There are no corporate locations. Although franchisees are carefully selected with the intent that they follow the Great Clips system and embody the culture, that reality ultimately depends on the individual location's owner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to ensure new franchisees are a good culture fit.

    I worked at Great Clips

    Pros

    opportunities for advancement in management.
    flexible hours
    full-time or part-time
    continued education and training
    teamwork

    Cons

    hours - open 7 days a week 9am-9pm (depending on salon) -means crazy hours evenings, weekends, holidays hard when you have a family. You know that going in but it still makes is difficult.
    depending on the salon - VERY busy - high work load, (this can be good & bad

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    often times good employees pay for the deeds of poor employees. Deal with poor/problem employees one on one so the entire staff does not suffer.
