      I worked at Sport Clips

      Pros

      The pay can be good

      Cons

      Everything else. No benefits, unprofessional team members including management and owner. Lack of consistency. Long hours. No breaks. No clear communication or expectations from franchisee. High turn over. unfair pay practices.

    • You either work there to grow clientele, succeed and then get out on your own or just stay mediocre.

      I worked at Sport Clips full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Great place to build clientele. Fun environment depending on location and staff. Having a supportive and motivated manager is a plus. Free company education and skills training. The tips were great.

      Cons

      Miss out on family life and events. Long hours, if you are the most requested in the store, you may not get lunch until 3-4pm even if you opened. My manager didn’t care if I ate or not. Oops, you have 2 more requests sorry! I felt like a popular cutting machine. Don’t forget to drink water!! I worked 6 years with the company and have seen a lot of turn over. Depending on...

      Advice to Management

      Be kind, be a great coach. You are a leader, so be a leader not a dictator. Just because your successful stylist hits her numbers, doesn’t mean she can’t join in on a competitive commission contest! It’s not about you, it’s about your team and your community who pays for your services. If the team is upset, the clients can feel it.

      I have been working at Sport Clips full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      They do pay well and everything seems great at first until everything goes downhill and you realize you are only with the company to be able to pay your bills.

      Cons

      Bad management that sits in the back while you do all the work and they talk behind your back. They go to classes but are not management material. At least 2 9 or 10 hour days a week which are long hours for stylist. You don’t receive any 10 minute breaks. If you try to talk to management they take things personally and then turn it on you and take it out on you in passive...

      Advice to Management

      Management needs more work in order to manage. Teamwork should be more focused on. Otherwise you will lose all your stylists.

      Nice place to work at. But paid the very bare minimum

      I have been working at Sport Clips full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      The manager I had was amazing to work under, paid training that allows you to stay up to date on the newest hair cutting trends. And get free CE hours

      Cons

      Long hours of working from open to close, not feeling appreciated by upper management, the store that I am in is VERY understaffed so a lot of days are spent working 10 hours without receiving a break

      Advice to Management

      I worked at Sport Clips for more than 2 years

      Pros

      The pay was good we got an hourly pay plus a chance to make commission if we met retail goals. Tips were amazing. We were located in a upper class area so we would get a $20 tip on a $19 haircut frequently.

      Cons

      They expect you to be pushy when it comes to retail and upsells. Retail was hard to sell to men. There is a lot of micro managing at the salon I was at. Lots of long hours with no breaks.

      Advice to Management

      The five point play seems very salesly and fake. You should switch the uniforms to all black salon attire instead of those ugly shirts we have to pay for.

      I have been working at Sport Clips full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Great tips but they tax you on them so they are really not yours ..nice talking to the men ..nice making them feel good about there haircut ..that's the only thing that kept me working there was the men other then that I would have not stayed

      Cons

      Long hours they expect you to slave and sale things and go fast on haircuts like a robot which we are not ..the men hate that we cut fast and actually prefer quality or quantity.they don't care about there employees they fire you as soon as you don't sale product and cut hair in 15 minutes be aware don't apply !!! Or if you do don't stay before you get fired !!!!!! - Indianapolis...

      I worked at Sport Clips

      Pros

      Great opportunities for growth. I specifically had the lead on recruitment, team operations and development. It was most rewarding to see a team member achieve a task or goal that they didn't feel they could at one time or another (or maybe just struggled with). When observing a team/team member achieve and exceed goals, it is so rewarding to see their smiles and pride in themselves!

      Cons

      If short staffed, long hours

      Advice to Management

      If you implement everything your taught and are consistent with your follow through, you can achieve great success!
