Good Starting Place
Master Hair Stylist (Former Employee), Clemmons, NCApril 16, 2015
Great Clips was the first place I started after I got out of hair school. I wanted to focus more on color and that is why it was my time to leave.

Productive place to work but not the place for me.
Stylist (Former Employee), Gardner, MAApril 14, 2015
Pros: Experience of working in a salon and with customers
Cons: No healthcare, rushed breaks, not getting paid for breaks
Get to work, set up my station then punch in, take the next client over and do there hair, check them out then clean and sweep my station, then I would repeat till the end of my shift and clean up.

i love being around people, I find them interstintg
Stylist (Former Employee), Everett, WAApril 8, 2015
Pros: room for growth, they do the advertisment, and provide the customers
Cons: Never had a regular schedule
This is a great place to work. Obviously, I worked there several times. They provide the clients so you stay busy. They provide continued education, and contests to keep you interested in keeping your sales up. The hardest part of this job was never having the same day off.

They don't pay me enough
Hair Stylist (Former Employee), Scottsdale, AZApril 8, 2015
Pros: Free lunches and a 30 min break
Cons: Demands that had nothing to do with you as your performance as a stylist
A typical work day would be normal stylists tasks however, they expect you to dress up as if you worked for a very up scale salon. They would send you home if you were not wearing jewelry and now you have to have some of the current fashion trends like a fashion statement neck less. For some who makes minimum wadge and does take care of themselves these demands are silly. Management is very different from other salons the company does not let the stylist take out their cash tips out of the drawer but instead they make you put them on a visa card which then charges for you to use.

Fast paced work environment to work
Management Team/Cosmotologist (Former Employee), Greenwood, INApril 1, 2015
Pros: Continuing Education

Great Clips is a fast paced salon that introduced me to many different cutting techniques. I enjoy a constant learning environment. The fast pace allowed me to meet many clients in a day so that I could develop personal relationships with them.

Overworked and under paid
Cosmetologist, Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Parker, COMarch 30, 2015
Pros: product discounts
Cons: bad raises
Great Clips is a franchise. Pay and benefits varies with different owners. High turn around of stylist. The raises are a joke. Working conditions at times were unbearable. No breaks, 12 hour days. Stayed here longer than I should have.

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 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!! =) !

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.
