Current Employee - Hair Dresser/Stylist/Barber in Wilmington, OH

I have been working at Great Clips full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I like some of the people I work with and most of our customers. I'm also great-full for the flexibility on the scheduling (most weeks anyways).

Cons

The pay leaves something to be desired. Bonuses or incentives to working your tail off are few and far between. Nothing you do is right and even corporate judges you on numbers that you can't control. Even if you work for the company for years, unless you are one of the favorites to upper management, you won't go anywhere but the bottom of the ladder.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees better. Give them a reason to stay and a reason to like working for the company.

    I have been working at Great Clips full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great interactions with the customers, productivity.

    Cons

    Management doesnt care about what you think or how you are feeling about anything. they suggest that everyone is to be a team but then leads you astray when an issue arises. You et documented for doing even the slightest thing. Great clips manipulates you into thinking that you need them and that is not a Team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being a manager involves leading by example. BE A TEAM PLAYER like you request the rest of us to do. Stop with the BIG EGO and Stop being disrespectful to your employees because your store will fail in the end because you continue to push all of your valuable employees away!!!

    Former Employee - Front Receptionist in Seal Beach, CA

    I worked at Great Clips part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They hired me for my first job here, so experience wasn't necessary. I was the front receptionist. I was trained well, and felt like I could handle the work. The stylists were nice to me.

    Cons

    The management knew what my availability was, yet they still would schedule me on days I couldn't work. Minimum wage as well, but that was expected. I worked weekends, but my nights were free since the shop closed earlier on in the evening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know the availability of your employees. I quit because this kept happening!
