    My interview was great. I was informed of my position at this location. Everyone wasn’t so nice and professional. They all seemed very knowledgeable and dedicated to their work.

    Hair Stylist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Great Clips (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Brief. They will take basically anyone with a current license. They will make you do a “technical skills” interview, but only as a formality to seem legit. They don’t care how your customer service is, if you actually have the skills to perform the job, of if you have any industry preferences (for instance, if you don’t offer perms), or if you are filthy and wearing inappropriate clothes. They simply need warm bodies on the floor.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask you to bring your cosmetology/hair license, driving license and social security card, because everyone gets hired.   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Great Clips.

    Interview

    Comfortable yet professional. I was already a Great Clips employee and one of a couple candidates for the Management position. I met one-on-one with our General Manager. After a series of questions, discussion about benefits with the position and challenges with the position, we moved onto a few week long transition process. I needed to tie up ends at the Great Clips where I was currently an Assistant Manager and then transition into the Salon Manager at another location. Our General Manager was available any time I needed to answer questions and offer guidance!
