Wayne McGlone Memorial Relief Fund

The Wayne McGlone Memorial Relief Fund was established in memory of Wayne McGlone, a much loved Sport Clips Area Developer who passed away unexpectedly in 2012, to support Sport Clips team members in need of financial assistance due to unforeseen emergencies and tragedies. Some of our first recipients were stylists who, along with their families, lost their homes to the Moore, Oklahoma tornado.

    Community Relations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Savannah, GA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sport Clips (Savannah, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call about the position roughly an hour after I submitted the application. I spoke with one of the higher ups in their operations department about the general duties of the job, what I could expect, what territories I would be in charge of, and how much time I could expect to spend traveling from various locations. Because the position I was applying for was a new position, they didn't really have a lot of guidelines for what they expected of me. A lot of it was things like "developing relationships between Sports Clips locations and local businesses" and "creating joint marketing campaigns with other Sports Clips locations and local businesses". At the end of the call I was told that my application would be sent on to the next level of the interview process, but I never heard from anyone from the company again.
