    I worked at Great Clips

    Pros

    Liked it in the beginning to get practice cutting

    Cons

    Began to feel used, unappreciated and disrespected as time went on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit looking at numbers and look at the quality of customer service being provided. Not everything in life can be measured with numbers believe it or not. pay the stylists better and don't have them work off the clock by taking your deposits to the bank after dark.
