Pros: Hourly pay, high tips, great salon culture, different types of customers
Cons: Long shifts, understaffed, no set schedules, low work life balance.
I can't say enough for the salon culture, it's very team oriented. No clintelle is needed which is great for stylists just starting out into the field. Hourly pay plus commission equals competive pay. Most of the customer base is awesome. You meet people from all walks of life. One down side to the lower priced haircut is you get alot of people who don't have good hygiene. Tips are good. Work life balance is not very good. Lots of weekends and nights, schedules get changed at last minute with no notice, stylists have to work at shops that they weren't hired to with no choice in the matter. Lots of micro managing that isn't really necessary. Overall Great Clips is a great place to work, they have outstanding morals and values and what they offer to the customer can't be competed with.
