    Interview Details

    There was not much of a process. I went in talked to the manager, she told me they were hiring. I didn't get a history on the company. Most of the stylist didn't have anything good to say about the company and after working there a short time I don't either.

    Supercuts Stylist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in South Tucson, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in South Tucson, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Supercuts.

    Interview Details

    I already had a friend working at the Supercuts. We meet when we were in beauty school together. We both were on the Supercuts scholarship. They pay for your school tuition (not the extras) and you work for them for two years. Once I got my cosmetology licence I called the manager and asked if they were hiring. I came in the next week for an interview. They asked if I had my license and all my tools. Asked if I lived around there and if I could get to work on time. At the end the manager asked about availability and when I could start. They sent me to the training academy for a week.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Supercuts in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview with about four or five other girls. They asked simple questions like

    Tell me about yourself?
    Where did you go to school?
    Who has done hair prior to this?
    Are you guys willing to do more than just hair (cleaning etc)
    What would you do if someone came in with hair past their butt and wanted a bob, how would you go about it?

    That was pretty much it. No audition or anything.
    They called a day later and offered the job.
    Once you get hired you go through a week of hairstylist academy to be properly trained on the "Supercuts Way". After that you get started in your salon.

    i would say not to work at supercuts if it is about the money like if you see yourself making a certain amount. if its for learning purposes its a great place to start.

    Hair Stylist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tulsa, OK
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tulsa, OK
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Supercuts in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online to multiple stores- the application was a bit long plus you have to take a questionnaire. Got a call from one of the salons within a couple days and setup an interview. The interview with the salon manager was short and sweet. no questions that you just wouldn't expect.

      Qs:
    1. Why do you want to work at SuperCuts?
    2. What would you do if you weren't able to understand what a client is wanting as an end result?
    3. How would you handle a wiggly/rowdy child who is getting their hair cut?
    4. Are you willing to recommend and sell retail products?
    5. what is your biggest weakness?

    after the inital interview, the manager immediately scheduled me for a second interview where I was shown how to do a specific haircut in a specific way and then had to mimic it. This part made me super nervous, but they are just seeing if you are willing to learn things their way. Once the demo was over, the manager offered me the job and we got paperwork done and details ironed out.

    no negotiating pay, since this is a corporation and they keep things like that on a tight leash. but they did work with my difficult schedule, which I really appreciate!

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Supercuts in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application online, didn't get a response. So I went in store to fill out an application. Talked to the shift manger and store manger on the spot. Manager said to call back in a few weeks to see if there was an open position. So I kept checking in with her and I got a one on one interview. And a practical interview.
