Great Clips
I like Great Clips people who work there, but the job is too demanding. You are on your feet all day with no breaks, It is a high stress job and is not worth the little money you make. A lot of the clients are rude and act like they are getting an $80.00 haircut when they bring in a coupon for a 5.99 haircut! Ridiculous.

Shift Leader | Overland Park, KS | May 20, 2019
If you want a fast paced fun environment that provides lots of continued education this is the place for you!
It is a great place to work if you don’t want to have to worry about bring your own clientele! You are always busy and there are always chances for bonuses raises and different ways to move up in the company! They always offer furthering education classes and want their stylist to be the best that they can be.

ConsNot very good healthcare

Sales Associate | Louisville, KY | Jul 21, 2019
In 10 yrs. I learned there is no typical day at Great Clips.
Working here you learn and earn, you must be ready to accept change at the last minute. Must be on time, ready to work. And, keep your equipment ready.

Nice clients
Nice clients most of the time. They could pay more per hour getting the tips is nice and a set schedule would be really nice. Manager was a little bit frazzled most of the time.

not the worst place to work
if you like to cut hair, and that's all you like to do then this is a great place to work. As long as you are under a good manager, than the environment can be bearable, but sometimes it can feel like working an asininely line.

Poor work environment
I felt over worked and under paid. I felt like we were treated like cattle and we were there to do our job and make the owner money, without a decent wage paid to us.

the harder you work the more you make
Franchisees are all different. Find one that is honest and truly cares about his employees. Some say they do but do not. It is hard to make the money you want to make. Must work very hard to earn the productivity. Good place to start your career. Not so great for advancement unless you go to a corporate level.

Questions And Answers about Great Clips

If you were to leave Great Clips, what would be the reason?
Asked Mar 19, 2017
Great Clips' business could be called "Modern Day Slavery" ... their phony nicey-niceness is in direct opposite to the ever new/changing stylists present at every turn, people hate working there because narcisstic managers' treatment and super low pay .... I was a GC's customer for 5+ years and learned what is going on in those salons, the jealousy and misgivings, even hatred on the part of mgrs. against stylists, some of whom are actually good and better then the mgrs. is catastrophic and out of control. I found a guy barber 1 mile from my house who is a brilliant stylist and said that he "knows the score at GC's" that borderlines ....slavery !
Answered May 29, 2020
Its like getting your first haircut when you go in the military, they do what they want and send you on your way. I've gotten mine cut in as little as 5mins
Answered May 23, 2020
How many haircuts do you typically average in a week?
Asked Mar 29, 2017
18/ shift x days so 98. I can only cut my fair share of what enters.
Answered May 3, 2020
I can cut 3 or 4 / hour but due to over scheduling I'm lucky to make my exspected 2.5 goal. They want you to cut 2.5 or more to deserve a raise yet you gotta play fair and we are always over staffed. Should cut hours esp when stylist want to leave so when its buisy they will come in.
Answered May 3, 2020
Why did you leave your job at Great Clips?
Asked Mar 16, 2017

I called the conway Arkansas great clips and asked if they were hiring. They said they were and to come in and feel out an application, which I did and they interviewed me right there and setup technical interview for next day. They asked pertinent information as well as was very welcoming and very informative of what to expect as a great clips employee.

I have been doing hair for 25 yrs. Will I have to change the way I cut hair to the Great Clips way of cutting hair?
Asked Jun 30, 2017
All the gc in my area don't realy care as long as the customers are happy.
Answered Sep 10, 2019
No, you dont have to change your style of cutting. Great Clips does offer training classes to keep our stylist up to date on trends. They will require some training for you to do, but not to change you as a stylist.
