    Cons

    -At times it is frustrating having your shift cut, but this happens at almost any service gig.
    -The hourly pay isn't that great, to really make money you have to sell products, upsell Add on services, and hope for overtime and heavy tippers.

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Drybar (Newport Beach, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied for this job online. It took almost three weeks for them to respond. When they hold interviews here they will wait for a large group of applicants to choose from. It's basically a cattle call. This interview they call the audition. They were 20 minutes late starting and a lot of the staff members looked as if they weren't sure what was going on. We all brought models in to blowdry. The Newport Beach store was filthy. There was hair stuck in the brushes and in the drawers. The hot tools were old and in disrepair. Some of the heat settings had been burned off. The chandeliers were full of dust and the station seats were dirty and cracked. This poor store gave a bad first impression and it seemed as if the poor staff would bump into one another. The process was simple but the cleanliness was a problem.

    Reasons for Declining

    Wanted to like this job. The colors and the atmosphere were so cute. I don't want to work somewhere that is unclean and out of control. I didn't care for the products. They too watery and too heavy. Over all, it is cute, but not for me.
