    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sally Beauty (Saint Louis, MO) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The process involved three interviews: The first two with the District Mgr., and one the District Mgr. and Territory Mgr. Both interviews were conducted at store locations. The DM had been with the company for more than 20 years and was very knowledgeable with all aspects of the position. She did a terrific job explaining the expectations of the role. While interviewing with both managers, the vibe was very relaxed, but professional.

    Turn in application, you are then called by a District Manager if there is an opening. You interview with another manager, then the DM, then you interview with the Regional.

    Originally met in person first, then proceeded with 2 over the phone interviews, one with higher management and another with HR. It had taken a while for an answer as, it seemed evryone was busy. I was actually going to decline if another day had went by. One on One was fairly standard, questions repeated for the following 2nd and 3rd interviews. They do personality screening as well.
