    Pros

    If you do your job right and make sure you show them you are trying they will fight to keep you. Very friendly.

    Cons

    I wouldn't say minimum wage is a good base pay start.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing is wrong with management. They train very and set realistic goals for the stylist.

    Pros

    Great learning experience. Loved my job. Was hired after finishing beauty school. Management sent me to advanced training to learn the Great Clips 5 steps to sucess. Traci Johnson was my manager and also to two other stores in the area. She believed in me and gave me the chance to grow along with a few other recent graduates.

    Cons

    Sad I had to move away for personal reasons

    Advice to Management

    There are no complaints


  8. Pros

    Great to grow with. Great pay with benefits. The franchise I work for us always doing fun things for us

    Cons

    No 401k. I have weighed fur other franchise that made me appreciate the one I am with that much more

    Advice to Management

    Please get 401k and more affordable health insurance

    As a salon manager I get to hire, teach, and encourage my staff in a daily bases. I love watching my stylist go from fresh out of school to mastering a flattop. I love seeing instant satisfaction when a customer gets exactly what they want.✂

    Cons

    For me there none. I get to inspire people everyday. Which I love ❤

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Great Clips full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I like the fact you get an hourly pay, paid time off, tips also another pro is your work a morning or a night shift.

    Cons

    My biggest con is being timed on haircuts 12-17 mins. Goals to sell items are to high (if your working in a slower shop)


  11. An excellent career choice

    Pros

    At Great Clips I make good money, it is fast paced, fun, and modern. They have online check in, further education, excellent standards and provide feedback, so you always know if you are doing your job well. They do all the advertising that bring the customer to you. It is possible to work your way up in the company, and make a career with Great Clips

    Cons

    Open 7 days a week (for customer convenience) means evening and weekend availability is a must. Standing for a long time is required.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to engage stylists by offering further education.
