    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Great Clips.

    Interview Details

    I was called for an interview a day or two after I applied online. You can also apply in person.

    Upon arriving for my interview, I was asked to fill out another application. Wasn't asked any hard interview questions. Most of the interview was her telling me about the job. She did ask me about previous experience and how fast I can cut hair. (Great Clips haircuts must be between 13 -17mins) My availability had to be completely open (Weekends are a MUST). She told me I would be paid hourly, and informed me about their dress code.

    She then asked me if I could come back with a live model so she could watch me cut hair. I brought a female model and I was able to do any haircut I wanted. So I gave her a trim. She also had me demonstrate a clipper cut on a doll head. I was then hired on the spot, I filled out all their paperwork and was sent to Academy for the next 3 days. I was trained on the computer and on dolls head for a week before I went onto the floor.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Great Clips in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview began with a manager from another location. She seemed focused and friendly. She discussed numbers mostly and the expectations of the owners. I was called back for a second interview with the owners. The owners were not hairdressers and were from India with heavy accents. I was offered the position with a promise of a raise based on a 90 day performance review. I took the position not realizing that the interviewing manager was a micro managing general manager and the owners had no plans on giving me the raise after fulfilling the expectations in 60 days.
