    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Sally Beauty.

    Interview

    Came in for an interview and the manager was very nice. Asked questions about how well I would know the products and if I had an interest in beauty supplies. Due to scheduling conflicts it did not work out. They said their training was videos so I am sure they would train you about the products they have.

    Interview Questions

    • They would prefer you to know about their products, they asked questions about certain ones.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    My schedule did not work out with theirs.

    Graphic Artist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Sally Beauty in September 2014.

    Interview

    Phone screen by someone from H.R. This person was very unprofessional and clearly not very knowledgeable about graphic designers or anything relatively close to this field. I really felt discriminated because of my age and years of experience. I take it they're looking for kids right out of school, a shame, I would have liked working for this company despite the roadblock of an HR individual that I had to deal with.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you know how to use a computer? Uh...duh. Seriously, learn something about WHAT graphic designers do to perform their jobs and maybe ask relative questions that are pertinent.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sally Beauty in July 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was very easy, quick and straight to the point. I was asked very few questions, just basically verified the information on my application. Manager was please that I attended cosmetology school and that I am very familiar with beauty products. I was told what the job entailed and asked if I was interested and I said yes. She told me she thought based on my cashier and beauty experience that she was sure I would be good, and also that I would fit in with my coworkers. I was told most likely that I was hired but she needed approval from her district manager. I was offered higher than minimum wage, but that was not the case once starting. I got a call back a week later and started the week after that. I'm still there and although the pay is terrible... i love my job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Sally Beauty.

    Interview

    The interview was very informal, I was only asked 5 questions and none were about my qualifications. I was only hired because she said "I was cute". At the time it was legal to smoke in the back room and she must have gone through a half of a pack. She mostly told me about herself and how the company treats it's managers. That should have been my Que to run away and never look back.

    Negotiation

    no negotiation, you take the pay they offer or you don't get the job.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Sally Beauty.

    Interview

    Interview was casual and not as stressful as I thought it would be. Asked basic questions. I guess if they actually are going to hire you they will call you in for an interview because I was given the job that same day.

    Interview Questions

    • When are you available to work? Are you licensed? (do not to be)   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Sally Beauty.

    Interview

    The interview was basically making sure that our personalities meshed well and that I would get along well with the other girls. I had been referred by a former employee of that store who was now the manager of a different location, since her and I had attended beauty school together. It was the most casual job interview I have ever had.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked how well I work with other females in a small space. I hadn't thought about it, but it was a smart question, since that particular store was pretty small, and any time there was a new hire, they would be introduced to the rest of the team (the ones on schedule that day) before the manager would make the final decision about them, just to make sure everyone approved since we would all be stuck working together on a team of 5 girls.   Answer Question
