    Pros

    Fast pace, fun atmosphere, flexibility in schedule, room for growth (3 years in and already in management with great training for the position), ability to transfer salons (if moving, etc), great bonuses.

    Cons

    Time off can be difficult during "blackout" times (2 big sales, holidays, few small sales during year). Sometimes advertising can be difficult between permissions from supervisor or property managers.

    Advice to Management

    There is never to many class or too much education. Stylist will take what is made available because we love to learn and improve our skills.

    Pros

    Structure, Guaranteed Clientelle, Tips, Ongoing education, Flexible Schedules, Working with GREAT People & Customers!

    Cons

    Great Clips is not for everyone. Some stylists don't like structure in a Company. Schedules change frequently for the trend of the customers and some stylists like a set schedule.

    Advice to Management

    I always would recommend for managers/Franchisees to show more
    appreciation to their Teams. You can never have enough. A "Thank You for your hard work" goes a long way.
    Thank you to Great Clips!

    Pros

    Salary. Health and dental. Busy. Tons of tips. Opportunity for hard working, dedicated people to advance. A stylist can become an assistant manager, a manager, a district manager, a trainer. It's up to you.

    Cons

    I agree. Sometimes the clients can come in dirty and not ask for a shampoo. That's why there's soap. Also, there's hardly any down time because we are so busy.I used to wish we did color until I talked to stylists who have worked at other chain salons offering color. They said the tips weren't worth the time and they don't miss it.

    Advice to Management

    Do the annual reviews. Keep goals in mind. Hold stylists accountable. Set a great example of what is expected
