Customer Service Interview

Customer Service
Ann Arbor, MI

I applied in-person - interviewed at Sally Beauty in February 2010.

Interview Details – online application process got a call with in 48 hours, had interview the next day. the store manager was very curteous with really set me at ease. it was more like talkiing to an old friend instead of a potential empoyer. this was one of the easiest interviews i ever had. The skills and assessment test was pretty easy also. I would recommend this employer to young college students or someone with a passion for cosmetology. you can learn a lot and the networking is great.
