Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Sally Beauty in May 2010.
Interview Details – The interview was very very very easy. they just go through your application with you and ask about recent employers on how your experience was. They asked why you left, do you have any goals, would you be interested in an managment job in the future. They also ask some personal questions just to get to know me to see if Im an overall reponsible, realiable person. I am a cosmetologist so my chances of getting hired was a little higher then whomever didnt have one. I also have had retail and salon/product knowledge experience.
Interview Question – why did you leave your last job View Answer
The process took 2 days - interviewed at Sally Beauty in January 2011.
Interview Details – The interview was pretty standard. It was one on one with the store manager. I was asked about my back ground in retail and beauty supply. I was asked about hours available to work, personal working style, and problem solving skills. The office and work culture was pretty unprofessional. You are not interviewed by any human resources personnel. Benefits and compensation are not thoroughly explained. The training after you are hired is very informal and almost non-existent.

Interview Details – I applied in person, and was called for an interview which I set up for the following day. The interview was a basic array of questions about customer services, beauty knowledge, etc. Nothing too crazy. Got called the next day offered the position. In general pretty simple interview process, though the location I had did not take online apps.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, was simply told that after a few months I'd be able to get a raise.

Interview Details – I was looking for a part time job during high school. My mother was a somewhat frequent patron at this small Sally Beauty Supply location, so there was a personal element to the hiring process. My mother asked if they were hiring, was given a paper application for me to fill out and when I returned it, I was essentially scheduled for an interview immediately. The interview was just about as typical as one could expect from a chain retail store, including the most basic of interview questions. In comparison to many people who apply for that position, I'm sure I presented as a gem in the interview. While I don't remember exact details about the interview, I can confidently say that anyone who conveys genuine concern for customer satisfaction and speaks eloquently should have no problem, whatsoever, getting hired. I had no prior experience in retail sales and even less knowledge about the products they carried, but was hired simply because I made a positive impression.
I do remember one loop I was thrown for. At the end of the interview, I was asked if I smoked. This caught me completely off guard and I had no idea whether it was part of the interview or not. I said, "No, I quit," and my boss's response was that she wanted to know because they take frequent smoke breaks. Anyone who has ever seen the episode of Friends in which Rachel, a non-smoker, works with smokers who bond over their smoke breaks will understand how I felt at that point.
The paid on-the-job training is grueling- and I don't mean it was physically or even intellectually challenging. However, it was immensely draining. It consisted of sitting in a back room with a small TV, a binder filled with pages upon pages of reading material and tests, watching hours of employee training video, produced by corporate and answering test and quiz questions about the hundreds upon hundreds of tedious information about products, displays, interacting with customers and other store procedures. I quit the job 85% of the way through the training process because, as far as I was concerned, it was just short of torture and I realized that retail sales was not the right job for me.
