A very energetic and comforting environment
Receptionist (Former Employee), Littleton, COApril 1, 2014
Pros: interacting with customers
Cons: not getting to know the people i work with more
I would great all of the customers and sign them into the computer system/ wait list. Then I would assist all of the stylists by cleaning their stations and providing new, clean combs and towels to use. My co-workers were easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was having to learn what each of the stylists was used to getting help with. – more... Some girls liked things a specific way. The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to interact with all of the customers. – less

A good job for stylist right out of school

A good place to build your speed and clientele. In a six hour work shift it was common to cut at least 20 heads of hair.

Exciting, evryday is different.
Hairstylist (Current Employee), Sun City, AZMarch 23, 2014
A day at work with Great Clips varies depending if your opening or closing. Which makes this the hardest part due to never having a set schedule. Another down side is that the pay isn't consistent cause your working for tips as well as the little hourly you receive. The most enjoyable part bout working for Great Clips is that I enjoy what I do. I also – more... enjoy working with my coworkers. Everyday is different as far as the clientele which in return makes it interesting and exciting. Management with in the shop is great, upper management as far as senior management, GM, and ownership, I feel can do more to appreciate there employees. Overall, I am grateful that I have had a job but is time to find something that will support me and my family on a consistent level. – less

horrible
Hairstylist (Former Employee), Buffalo Grove, ILMarch 11, 2014
manager was too young and inexperienced. was expected to cut a specific way and in a specific time frame and was constantly berated for anything. the manager would constantly text the employees when they were off the clock yelling at them for anything she saw fit that she could. was offered free training classes via great clips but the manager never – more... allowed stylists the time off to take them. – less

Good for beginners but dont stay too long
Hair Stylist (Current Employee), Omaha, NEMarch 6, 2014
Pros: getting haircut exp if right out of school
Cons: poor management and little raise
This job was good in the beginning to get your experience, but after time there is little growth. You are stuck in hair cutting only. The owner of salon in Omaha NE does a poor job of keeping his employees. Raises are non existant unless you are management. They focus on retail sales instead of quality cuts and base your raise on how much retail you – more... sale..Not haircut time or quality as stated in description. They withhold your paycheck if you do not meet your retail goal for biweekly payday. They reward you by giving your paycheck on a saturday instead of monday if you were a "good retail employee"...VERY SAD!!!!! – less

Hair Stylist (Former Employee), Canton, MIMarch 6, 2014
Pros: close by
Cons: low wages
The best part is that it was a busy location. The employees aren't given the compensation or benefits they deserve from the employer or the clients. Its a good place for someone learning the business.
