    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sally Beauty.

    Interview

    Very vague description of responsibilities. Had 2 interviews. One with store manager, very casual. one with district manager, very formal. Store manager was very nice and made me feel welcome and like I could do the job. District manager was very cold and made me feel like she had an underlying thing she wanted me to say. Didn't feel like I could give her the right answer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sally Beauty (Denton, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I signed up for an interview through my university. It was a fair interview, pretty comfortable. They are trying to see if you are driven and hard working. I got selected for a second and third interview at a later date which was a similar format. It wasn't difficult, they don't expect you to be perfect. They just want to see the potential and passion.

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sally Beauty (Tulsa, OK) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I met with the store and district manager and they sit you down and read from a paper of questions. You do get a little bit over whelemed in the interview, that I don't think they explain the expectations of you as a employ very well during the interview process, they wait until they hire you to explain the expectations which for me I would've rather known what was expected of me before fire not during training.

    Inside Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Woodburn, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sally Beauty (Woodburn, OR) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Brief general questions mainly about work ethic and schooling. They did request that I "sell them an item" of my choice using product knowledge and customer services skills. Though I had no training on any products, I naturally have an extensive knowledge of makeup and skincare products and have attended modeling school which taught students about improving your appearance as well as proper marketing techniques. Thanks to my previous education, I rocked that portion with flying colors and wow-ed the manager with the fact that I hadn't worked a retail job before that. The interview process was average but some were a little off topic in my opinion such as, "how popular were you in school/do you have many friends?"
