fun upbeat salon with lovely staff
Receptionist (Former Employee), Dawsonville, GANovember 19, 2014
Pros: decent pay
Cons: no insurance
come in fold towels, then greet each costumer, enter customer information into the computer for appointments, wash towels throughout the day, when a stylist is finished with a haircut you sweep up all the hair and depose of it in the proper place, run to the bank of deposits if needed, clean areas that needed to be cleaned.
management was very friendly.
co-workers – more... all got a long and were very professional – less

I loved working for this company.
Hair Stylist (Former Employee), Austintown, OHNovember 5, 2014
The Franchisee and the manager were very understanding of my school and home needs and worked around my schedule. I loved the girls I worked with as well as the clients who came into the shop. Cosmetology is my passion, and continuing my education will only help me further my career within the industry.
I have nothing bad to say about Great Clips.

Make fast cash without clientele
Hair Stylist/Receptionist (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MIOctober 29, 2014
Pros: paid vacation after 1 year, minimum wage plus tips, extra money if you sell product and you have high productivity. i mostly was in it for the money.
Cons: cutting by great clips system, no creativness, no advanced education, chop shop. very overworked and under appreciated.
Great Clips is a billion dollar corporation and has many rules and regulations. They have succeeded immensely in this industry and offer a wide range of benefits and perks. You handle all sorts of clients throughout the day. Most clients that come in usually want a fast, quality haircut. These fast haircuts can become monotonous and boring. If you are – more... a creative hair stylist and thrive off learning new techniques then this place is not for you. There is set 5 step system that you must abide by and certain numbers to hit daily. If you do not follow after a given time period then you will be written up. There is high turnover in stylist, thus being constantly understaffed and overworked. Although I liked the co-workers, it was not worth my skills. – less

Really good cutting teachers
Hairstylist (Former Employee), Houston, TXOctober 23, 2014
Pros: great teachers
Cons: management has childish behavior
The stylists had good attitudes, the customers were not bad, but management harassed the stylists about haircut time almost everyday. Every haircut is not going to take less than 15 min.

ok work place
Receptionist (Former Employee), dripping springsOctober 20, 2014
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

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
