    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SmartStyle.

    Interview

    District leader will meet in what would be your home salon, typically on a slower afternoon. Very simple. Sit in the back of the salon, chat for a few minutes, get asked a few questions,& done. They will let you know they will call you once they have spoken with their regional supervisor. If they like you, they will run your information through their computer to make sure you are eligible for hire. If you are, then they can begin the hiring process.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at SmartStyle in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. After a few weeks I received a text requesting an interview with the district manager. It was very easy to be honest. I’m a new graduate and the interview was a breeze. I think I was asked about 8 questions and then I was shown around the salon. There was also a technical interview where I had to perform a haircut of my choice. They gave me space and just wanted to see how I did a client consultation and how I would act around a client. I was offered the job immediately.

    Two interviews, first is verbal, second you bring models in to do hair cuts on. It’s pretty easy and simple as long as you know what you’re doing. Depending on the salon they may ask you questions about color and perm wrapping etc, but they didn’t at mine.
