Very busy salon
Stylist (Former Employee), Frisco, TXOctober 14, 2014
I started working here right out of beauty school. The manager and the girls I worked with were so nice and full of knowledge. They helped me get to where I am now in the beauty industry. I was always learning something new, and different techniques.

Busy company
Hair Stylist (Former Employee), Woodstock, GAOctober 14, 2014
With a steady flow of clients, you stay busy most days. Management seemed very self involved and reluctant to help all staff members at times. Experiencing my first salon with malicious drama, which made it hard for all stylist to be team players. And for this reason that was the hardest part of my job. As always the most enjoyable part of the job was – more... having the clients who showed their appreciation for the hard work one puts in working for Great Clips. – less

Receptionist (Former Employee), Commerce CityOctober 12, 2014
Pros: a great team and happy vibes
Cons: part time only
I loved working here. A typical day was to clock in make sure towels and shampoo was full and ready to go, check customers in, clean the hair stylist stations after every hair cut that was done, help keep the lobby clean. This job had great management and coworkers. It was definitely always a team work crew no negative attitudes always positive. There – more... was never really a hard time at this job because we always helped each other out. – less

Poor Managment
Stylist (Former Employee), Belton, TXOctober 9, 2014
Pros: good tips
Cons: short breaks, bad managment
I worked at great clips in Belton a few months after I got my Cosmetology operators license, and I must say that this is definitely the only way you can learn in this field by doing it hands on which is both good and bad. for the first few months it was fine and then after the recent people started leaving and they started hiring new people, the management – more... staff started being shady. Typically the procedure for Great clips is when the shift change happens you are to move down or fill in the empty stations. Well the manager felt that she did not have to move her stuff sooo, no one was ever allowed to use the first station. Which is not allowed in the book. Only one person is supposed to go on lunch at a time, Saturdays where our busiest days all three of the management staff would go on a break at peak times. I ultimately stopped working here because on a day that I originally didn't feel well i called in and was told that i couldn't call out and i would have to bring up a doctors note, well instead i just came in any way on time... After the shift was over, and she sent several people home before me, she then took me to the back and mysteriously wrote me up for a dirty station weeks before and for calling out... even though I still came in. The franchisee is a great and nice man, just has no knowledge of this industry and let them run the salon in whatever manner they please... – less

GREAT PLACE TO BRING FAMILY
STYLIST (Former Employee), Saginaw, TXOctober 6, 2014
Pros: improve cutting skills, knowledge
Cons: too far
IVE LEARNED THAT THE CLIENTS LOVE FOR YOU TO REMEMBER THEM AND LITTLE FACTS ABOUT THEM. I LOVE THE CONSISTENCY OF THE FLOW OF CLIENTS TO WORK WITH. ITS ALWAYS GREAT TO HAVE A DOWN TO EARTH KNOWLEDGABLE MANAGER THAT CAN HELP YOU WORK OUT THE KINKS IN THE INDUSTRY. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU REMAIN PROFESSIONAL WITH YOUR COWORKERS BUT STILL BE THAT UPLIFTING – more... PERSON. THE HARDEST PART OF THE JOB IS WHEN WE HAVE SLOW DAYS. THE MOST ENJOYABLE PART IS WORKING WITH AND SATISFYING THE CLIENTS. – less

Not amazing
Hairstylist (Current Employee), Sandy, OROctober 5, 2014
Pros: gaining good experience.
Cons: too little pay, random schedule
A typical day is doing lots of haircuts on many textures of hair. I have learned from this experience that I do not like rushing a haircut. The hardest part of this job is not being able to take the time to give a quality haircut and give personalized attention. The best part is getting experience.

Pros: great place, great people
I loved this job handing customers and their needs is a fun job. I always loved going into work especially learning something new that day for sure.
I ended up having to move out of the location area of my job and also my car decided to break down. I had no way to work at all so I had to put in my two weeks.

Manager (Former Employee), Anchorage, AKSeptember 24, 2014
Pros: awards, and contests.
Cons: healthcare
A typical day at work, including opening the slaon, balancing the drawer, providing exceptional customer service, and performing other office and salon duties. I learned alot about customer service and business management. Management and my co-workers were all very supportive and helpful. The hardest and best part of the job was being short staffed, – more... it was hard because there was never enough time in the day it seemed, and it was great because my team and I constantly kept the salon a float and saw what we were made of. – less
