      I have been working at Great Clips full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      I've worked for Great Clips for the last 7 years and they have invested time and money in order to train me to be the best possible manager! They offer hundreds of continuing education courses for their stylists, from haircut trends to efficiency training. Great Clips helped for me in to the stylist and manager that I am today.

      Cons

      Open a lot of hours and short staffed, can be very busy and stressful. However, when it's busy you can make a TON of money! Very lucrative career.

      Advice to Management

      Treat your team as you would like to be treated. We are there to guide and teach, not control and berate.

      I have been working at Great Clips full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I have the privilege of working for a place where we consider each other family. These people are some of the most kind and caring people I've met. If you are willing to put in 100% of effort into your career, you will get 500% back. The pay is amazing, there are incentives which are AWESOME. They are helping me pay back my student loans. We get doted upon by our managers (they really love us, guys!). They are flexible...

      Cons

      Can be overwhelming, simply because of the high demand for stylists and there's not quite enough of us! (So come work for us and bring your friends ;))

        Pros

        Great Clips supports its franchisees 100%! They support their stylists 100%! That is what makes this company stand out. It’s what makes us shine a little brighter then the rest. A company that cares will deliver results and have a beautiful brand which we do. Because Great Clips cares so much they have 40 000 proud stylists representing their brand everyday!

        Very good company to work for ,been with them for 4 years. Make money easily, incentives.

        Cons

        I don’t really have any cons

        Advice to Management

        I would say that area managers and owners try to be more active with the salons. Get to know what’s going on ,I know it’s a lot of stylist but it helps and let’s us know that you care about what’s going on.

        Cons

        * in order to sustain an above average income you must consistantly optimize every single opportunity this company gives you to maximize your earnings potential. This leads to: long hours, almost no personal life, time away from family and burn out. * Health insurance is offered but not paid - high premiums and below industry standards * there is nothing that sets this company apart from other salon competitors...
