  • I applied online and recieved a call the next day, I believe. The phone interview was mainly to see how you are and why you applied to the store-- very basic questions haha. Then I was scheduled for a group interview the following day. Though I was late, I got the job as I got into the car to go back home. The group interview was discussing your schedule, resume, and just how you are as a person. It was very interesting! I dont know how the interviews are set now, but i recommend applying online and letting a manager know :)

  • Group interview with an incredibly rude district manager.I’m glad I didn’t get this job it’s not a company I would want to work for with such rude upper management,It’s no wonder the turn over is so high.

  • My personal interview experience was pretty smooth. I applied online and got an email to schedule an interview which I did. The interview was easy and pretty fast. I was with a group with about 4 others and all the interviewer asked was for us to them about ourselves. We one by one took turns and that was pretty much it. She further explained the current positions open and asked our availability. She offered me the job the next day via email.

  • Onsight interview, job offer pending the background check results.

  • The group interviews are fun and interesting

  • Mine was pretty laid back but I think that was just the hiring manager’s nature.

  • Got hired on the spot.

  • 1 on 1 then a group tour.

  • Short interview hired on the spot

  • You interview first with just a talk and questions. Then, you are asked to preform a haircut, highlights, and shampoo. Sometimes they’ll ask for other things, it really just depends on your experience and what they need in the salon.
