The Gents Place – Why Work For Us?


People often worry they’ll offend us when confessing a previous aversion to salons and barbershops. Such a notion, however, couldn’t be more displaced. Rather, their feelings are in very good company—as it happens we feel exactly the same way.

In fact, I founded The Gents Place because I was the number one proprietor of this sentiment. Once a busy executive with responsibilities far more reaching than my neckline, I formerly avoided haircuts with the same aloofness I assigned to light beer and traffic jams. From meetings with clients to evenings with my family, I had endless priorities ahead of spending an hour with a smock around my neck.

Tired of lamenting the choice of either going unkempt or suffering through discount barbershops and effeminate salons, I opened our first Gents Place location in December of 2008. My fervent inspiration? To provide businessmen with an option complementary to their lifestyle, not corrosive to it.

Years later and amid applause from the likes of Forbes, GQ, Men’s Health, and the Dallas Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 Awards, we’ve made a nice dent in the industry—or, rather, we’ve helped repair an industry that had previously been dented.

Make no mistake: this company is not in the hair industry any more than the periodicals above are in the paper industry. Their true purpose is journalism. Ours is confidence.

We find it profoundly important that our clients enjoy as much time as they can among their families, careers, and pastimes—but it’s equally important they benefit from the time they devote to themselves.

Life is not an errand, nor should we treat it as such. When it prompts us to attend a task with regularity, we might as well attend to it while surrounded by likeminded gentlemen, fine cigars, complimentary drinks, and curated advice. Such is the path to looking our best, feeling our best, and becoming our best.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The Gents Place (Dallas, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    3 different interviews I had to go through before the technical interview. The lady who did the face to face interview was so friendly but when I came back for the technical interview she did not even speak or look at me. She looked my way but never at me. The girl who did the technical part was so fake. I have been cut hair for over 30 years but never felt so uncomfortable ever. They treated my model so great and asked him to return for haircuts but had no intention of hiring me although he told them how great I did
    I would not recommend this place if you are of another race or older
