Upbeat, casual workplace.
Stylist (Former Employee), Greenville, SCMarch 25, 2015
A typical day at work included, setting up tools of the trade, making sure the salon was clean, and making sure all the clients are happy. I learned a lot of different ways to cut hair and sell products. Management was always there for you to help anyway they could. My co-workers were always ready to work and always willing to help out. The hardest part of the job was making sure you and the client were always on the same page. The best part of the job was being able to create the look specific to the clients needs and wants, and making sure they are happy.

Great Clips can do better as in get a manager. I really didn't get the training that I was promised. Fun workplace but the other stylist made me not enjoy my job like I wanted

great place
stylist (Current Employee), Pine City, MNMarch 21, 2015
Cons: no benefits
The manager and team of stylists here are great! The setup here is incredibly simple. It's one of the best I have ever seen!

VERY clean, professional, organized, not cluttered, very open, easy for safety and infection control. Nobody complains about their duties or one another. This establishment is a positive environment! All stylists are Very welcoming, respectful, and polite here! Everyone works together and cleans up after themselves or for another, naturally.

*I cannot express how much I enjoy that nobody has to be told what we/they should be doing (such as: dispensary, disinfecting, sweeping, dusting, moping, cleaning windows, attending clients...) why? because it's not an issue here and everyone is so well-organized, clean, alert, on top of duties...and above all, we're all on the same page!

Team work like clock work here..!

Love it & grateful to be part of this growing team!! =) !

Treated Poorly.
Stylst (Former Employee), Vernal, UTMarch 20, 2015
Pros: made money
Cons: treated poorly
I currently worked for great clips, in Vernal for six months. Working for great clips gave me the opportunity to improve my haircuts while making money. While working at Great Clips I was treated very poorly.

Great customers and Stylist
Stylist (Former Employee), ManassasMarch 5, 2015
Pros: off on sundays and shorter hours.
Cons: heavy smokers, cigarette smoke would drift back into the salon.
I came to Great Clips from a major salon chain in Manassas, Virginia where I had worked for five years.
.
At Great Clips I quickly became disappointed with management to say the least.

I had left a good job to do better. I thought this was going to be a great place to work as the staff was delightful. However, Management was rude, crast and difficult to work with. I made good money and in time it would have been great. My problem came from the manager who wanted me to do a haircut in fifteen minutes. I could understand doing a clipper cut that fast but why when the client base was not there to support this kind of speed.

Also, management had a attitude because I was being tipped well. The manager asked me how much a particular customer had tipped... I was shocked.
I lasted one month and was told that perhaps I should work at an high end salon because I took too much time with each customer.

When I took a look at my work sheets I could see that I was doing cuts in 15 minutes when we were busy. So from that I understood it was the manager and not me that had a problem. Also, she fired two other good stylist while I was there in front of the staff and she was loud about it without regard to their feelings.

A nice place to work
Cosmetologist/Manager (Current Employee), Chagrin Falls, OHFebruary 25, 2015
Pros: flexible hours, advancement opportunities.
Cons: breaks are cut short if non-esistant when it is busy, no benifits.
Great Clips is a great place to work. There is some room for advancement and the people that you work with are some of the best in the industry. I have enjoyed my time with the company and would continue to work there in the future.

Good place to work
Hair Stylist (Former Employee), Oak Grove, ORFebruary 24, 2015
A great place to work if you are just starting out or don't have any immediate plans to further your career as a stylist.
The client flow is steady and sometimes very busy, so you make good tips.
The cons of the job are that you are on a time limit to finish haircuts and don't really have much of an opportunity to further your career.
