    Salon Stylist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bessemer, AL

    Application Details

    The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at JCP Salon & Spa in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviewing took a process of a couple interviews. Manager was untruthful. She explained everything to be wonderful, and when i actually worked there, it was nothing like it seemed in the interview. If you are interested in JCPenney Salon, please take my advice, and keep looking. She told me i would start out at 8 or 9 dollars and hour, and i ended up starting at 7.25. All stylists are paid 7.25 if you are a designer. Master stylists are paid 7.47. The more hours you work, the harder it is to make commission. You must average 11 dollars an hour for the 1st 3 months of your career to make commission, 13 dollars after 3 months and so on. The manager stressed to me how busy the salon was and it was "booming." Only to find out, it was very slow. The most walk ins that i personally saw come into the salon a week was an average of 3 people. I was very disappointed to know that the manager was untruthful about the whole Salon experience and i will never work for another JCPenney salon again!

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at JCP Salon & Spa in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Took more time than anticipated. Seemed the training department had a few hiccups, trying to train a new person to help in the position, as the regular person had a number of health issues. Initial interview with salon manager went well. Training for store practices and culture seemed drawn out.
