Hair Stylist Interview

Anonymous Employee in Springfield, IL
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Great Clips (Springfield, IL) in April 2017.

Interview

I submitted my candidate profile online and received a call from the manager the next day. We set up the first initial interview, very basic interview questions, and then scheduled a technical interview for the following Monday. I brought my own models and was instructed to demonstrate a fade and then a women's haircut in which I took an inch off. Super simple and relaxed, manager was very professional and helpful.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Great Clips (Nashville, TN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Very professional and welcoming manager, willing to help you find the best job fit for you, and even to help you improve by directly mentoring you. Classes for improving speed also are offered after 30 days but before ending 90 days on the job. Weekends at this location are extremely busy, and if you like to give and get support from the team this sound like a great opportunity to become a great and fast stylist.
