What Do You Like About Working There?

Not much, decent money I guess. My clients are about the only thing... Show More

What DON'T You Like About Working There?

Extremely unrealistic expectation of production and no realistic goals to make commission resulting in no where near enough income for how hard they work you. Franchised so a lot of them have ZERO room for promotion or upward mobility of ANY kind. Never see my 2 year old son because I'm always working. Don't waste your time or your health. Not worth it...

February 15, 2016 on Reddit

back in the day the slogan used to be "relax, you're at great clips!" my wife and I would always joke that it should be "uh oh, you're at great clips!" Question: do you find this funny? would this go over well with the senior management?

No one at the salon cares lol. They would use it as a conversation starter to talk about product somehow if they were good and they would laugh it off if they were casuals :P. EDIT: Fun fact someone getting their haircut by our manager said "I would rather guzzle gasoline than be here." Man left buying a gift set of Tea Tree. You never know where it can go.

Does it cause problems when clients don't register their name/info? How can the chain afford to give coupons for $5.99 haircuts?

At all the branches I worked at, the phone number was just to look up your account without using your name, and it was preferable because there are never duplicate numbers, however there can be 20 John Brown's. So the worst that could happen is some checkout problems or slowness if you only provide your name. Around 40-60% of stylist's money is from tips. We still make a profit when doing our 7.99 haircut sales, and any coupons or free cuts people have are so rare that they hardly make a difference. Remember, prices are meant to be set so that we can have cheap sales, not to already be cheap.

I know there's some quality stylists, but how many bad terrible stylists were there? What was the ratio? Worst haircut you saw? What are you doing for a living now? What is your morning routine? What time do you normally go to bed? I wake up and scramble to brush my teeth and put clothes on. I am a night shower taker, so no shower in the morning. I then grab my iced coffee, that I made the night before and let chill in the fridge over night, and I'm out the door! On weekdays when I work, I sleep at 1am, and wake at 8:30am. Weekends it's usually around 2-3am to bed and wake at 10am What time do you sleep on a work night? Off days? What time do you consider as sleeping in? Got any cool, funny, sad, weird, or crazy stories? If so, please tell. Don't overthink it man, just something off the top of your head anything will do its just a casual question. What's your purpose in life? What keeps you going every day?

1. In our record breaking salon I can honestly say if you were bad you were moved, replaced or fired. They were all capable people who did old people, first haircuts on babies and inverted bobs. In our other salons usually it was about 1-2 mediocre stylists that would mess up 1-2 haircuts a day. So it is not insanely unlikely you would just get a bad haircut on a random day. 2. Worst haircut was this, our older lady was a little sick but still came in, accidentally cut herself (happens often no big deal) and went back to fix it. Then when she came back just did a haircut that was completely different, like 3 inches shorter, used clippers on a scissor only cut, and the dude with luscious locks now had a buzz. Was too absorbed in his phone to notice. He was next level pissed and she got a write-up. 3. Wake, eat, brush, contacts, warm up motorcycle, gear up, head to work around 8 or 9 depending on the day. 4. Sleep at midnight wake around 7:30 on workdays, sleep in on non-workdays. 5. Someone in like Texas at a Great Clips threw away 4 out of about 50 donations to wigs for kids in sealed box. Some customer took a picture of the donations that they accidentally threw away. Long story short it was a social massacre online and now you have to donate your own hair after it getting cut off making the whole process much worse and now we get less donations. Some people need to let mistakes lie. 5. I am a NetTech now, Just got the new job, really helps me a lot. Also a supportive woman.
