    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sally Beauty in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview was really easy and very relaxed. The manager was very nice. My first interview (at a different store) was a little more by the books and wanted us in and out.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sally Beauty in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Printed application and filled out at home. After dropping off application I was called back immediately for an interview. I was interviewed by the District Manager and Store Manager. District Manager seemed professional, Store Manager didn't seem to be very experienced in interviewing. Both interviewers seemed very condescending and skeptical of me during the entire process.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The manager was hard to get a hold of at first, they are always accepting applications... I applied twice the first time I never got a call the second time I was more persistent to actually speak to the manager. When I finally was able to talk to her she could realize the kind of person I was and could tell that this was a good fit for the situation I was in. The time is flexible but try with less hours first and then ask for more unless you absolutely need it.

    Interview Questions
    • honestly there really wasn't anything unexpected. i mean other than why did you leave your other job, or have you been fired.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    i was allowed to work for 8 dollars an hour which is suppose to be more than minimum wage but they do not realize how much work they want done in a small amount of time.
    the good part is try to work Sundays if you can because there is time an a half pay then. the training isn't hard at all....
