    Hair Dresser/Stylist/Barber Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Great Clips (Charlotte, NC) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The atmosphere was lukewarm. There are 2 locations in Charlotte. One I called and left messages for the manger twice and never got a return call. The receptionist was rude. The other location had a hiring sign on the door, yet was vague when the position would be filled. I was told that I would be called in for a test cut, but never got the call. Did not appear to be a diverse team.
