    I applied online. I interviewed at Great Clips.

    Interview

    Met with Franchise owners; talked about experience. Very positive interview experience. We met at a local Starbucks, as the shop had not opened yet. One thing I would have changed is to meet inside the Starbucks rather than on patio, as it was really hot that day.

    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.
