Hair Stylist (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – March 9, 2016
I would check customers in and out for their hair needs. Providing customers with their hair care needs and wants. Working here as helped me learn more about hair and working with customers hands on. I love working with customers and making them feel good about their self's. I love being the first and last person that can make customers day better.
salon manager (Current Employee) – Athens-Clarke County, GA – December 27, 2015
Very busy and upbeat environment. Everyone is very productive and enjoying the customers. We get the customers in and out in a timely manner. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with people and enjoying what I do for a living. The hardest part of the job is sometimes there is a wait time and customers don't want to wait, and they leave. But we try our best to convince them that we move fast and that the wait will be short.
Very fun atmosphere with professional productivity.
Administrative assistant (Former Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – May 12, 2015
I would come to work and be greeted by everyone. Management treated me great, co workers treated me great, and everyone got along. My co workers would give amazing haircuts while I would check out customers and clean the store. The hardest AND most enjoyable part was checkout when sales are going on because it's over 20 people waiting in line. This pushed me to work harder and faster in order to keep wait times low.
Hair Stylist (Current Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – February 9, 2016
My manager wasn't the nicest person. She seemed to only care for herself. All the other stylists were very nice and helpful, they helped me fade my clipper cuts so much better. I hated that i could barely take a lunch, my manager actually got mad that i wanted to take my full 30 minute lunch. I would definitely not go back.

Salon Manager -Great Clips Franchise (Former Employee) – Bay Area, CA – October 23, 2015
Day starts out with usually a customer already waiting to get a haircut by you. I learned a lot about structure and professionalism. The managment is great, just hard to get staff to do as the manager or franchisee wants. Co-workers are very nice and genuine so it feels a lot like a family. The hardest part of the job was to deliver great customer service in under 17 minutes. The best part of the job is that it always stayed busy no matter what! Tips were not always the best per person but when you are doing lots of customers it really makes up for it.
Christmas parties, fun meetings with Prizes and food, Built Brand Name, Great Owners
rotating schedule and timed on your haircuts by the second.
Former Stylist (Former Employee) – Fargo, ND – November 20, 2015
Expectations for service are completely unrealistic. You are expected to provide a salon quality haircut and sell product in a sum of 11-13mins. Ive been a stylist for nearly 10 years and I struggled too meet expectations with their unrealistic service time requirements.Do not accept a job if it is a new location because you will be hired at 40hrs a week initially BUT hours are reduced substantially if the customer weekly quota is below expectations do to greedy ownership. I was a manager at a location and I just had to get out of there. They tend to destroy a fellow stylist lively hood. All they want to do is work you to death during their Tragic attempt at profit, "Great Haircut Sale" During the sale you are not allowed to take a lunch or they want you to work under ridiculous time constraints.The company is a joke and so is the brand delivery. AVOID! Managers get just about EVERY Weekend OFF while stylists ahve to work 3 out of 4 weekends!!! No Breaks except a lunch and you are expected to go go go without taking 5 minutes! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!! Your a human being not a Number!!!
Manager (Former Employee) – Hudson, MA – September 23, 2015
Business was in a great location for marketing. Although it was hard to advance in the company the employees were upbeat and positive which made working there enjoyable. Upper management was not around much which made it difficult to carry out store management duties but with the help of my staff we were able to make our numbers and quotas.

Stylist (Former Employee) – West Des Moines, IA – February 2, 2016
Learned how to do 15 plus hair cuts a day. My customer service skills are much better too thanks to working directly with customers. everyone that I worked with was very nice and always happy and always trying to help each other out. the hardest part was days having a bad customer and they yell or try to put you down you learn to just keep on going and forget about it.
