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

Pros

Owners truly cared about clients and stylists

Cons

It sometimes felt like you were just a head counter. Numbers matter more than quality.

    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Saint Louis, MO

    I worked at Great Clips full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I liked my customers and most of the employees (when they weren't back-stabbing.

    Cons

    Always wanted you to work every weekend, they talk you out of vacations and want you to take them day to day.

    Hair cuts are timed and you are written up if it exceeds - even a couple of minutes..

    They want you to push sales of product big time mentioning at least three times while you are with a client that says no...

    Vacation pay will not be paid to employees no longer working either - I was screwed big time after being talked out of going on vacation until 'next month'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doesn't matter because a new manager will be hired about every two years... I've seen many and their job is ALWAYS in the paper...

    I worked at Great Clips full-time

    Pros

    At least the tips are nice.

    Cons

    Sell your soul to GC and everything will go smoothly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand the concept of meeting goals and "hitting your numbers", but when they become more important than the employee, this is where Great Clips falls short. I have seen this in all of the GC's I have worked in. The managment (and owners) of these shops will look to the computer for solutions instead of getting input from the stylists who know how the business is from a day to day, personal interaction, non-numbers view.
    My opinion.....run away! Things are much better (pay, personal time, attitude, life) after leaving.
