Application

I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sally Beauty (Phoenix, AZ).

Interview

Typical retail interview, " Sell me this product." "What do you do when you see a customer shoplifting?" What do you do when you see a coworker stealing?" It's nothing to be nervous about.

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sally Beauty (Greensboro, NC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very laid back. Straight to the point. The ladies were very professional and nice. They asked me questions about my experience with selling retail and being a hair stylist. Seems like a cool place to work. I guess time will tell! I will only be working part time because I am a full time hair stylist.

    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.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a 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

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
