Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Great Clips (Saint John, IN).

Interview

Sat down with the manager and some times with the general manager and just go through a basic interview process, they do have a personality test now to find out your work ethics and such. Most applicants are asked to do a technical interview as well. However it is a very relaxed environment and makes you want to work there.

I continue to stay because i get paid wether we are busy or not.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Great Clips (Robinson, PA).

    Interview

    Single interview, 20 minutes tops, much promised and not much delivered. Thought it was a great job the first day. However, my overall experience with Great Clips was not so great. Lots of blame shifting goes on there. No accountability when it comes to the General Manager. If your not in the click it will be hard for you there. The rules are astringent and change often. Lots of undesirable people frequently visit the salon, not to mention the people in the assisted care homes come often and are not well groomed. High production and lots of pressure to produce haircuts of a =passable=quality.Pressure high to sell products to customers. Weekly Rah Rah one- on- one meetings with management to always produce more. I make 8.50 an hour presently, and never received a raise the entire time of my employment with the company. I am truly working at a McDonalds like salon.
