Terrible workplace, do not waste your time
Hairstylist (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABFebruary 24, 2016
Pros: amazing staff, short hours, tons of clients
Cons: low wage, unreasonable expectations, little apprieciation
Having been a previous manager, I received little to no appreciation for my extra work. My wage was the same as every one else's but I had twice the work load. Staff members are very friendly and supportive. Employer is only concerned with what they are going to profit.

managment is not good
Stylist (Former Employee), Nanaimo, BCJanuary 4, 2016
Cons: bad managment, not the greatest pay for what you're doing.
This company is not a very good place to work at. A typical day at work was basically pounding out clients at a ridiculously fast pace for not a very great amount of money. I did learn how to pick up my speed but I felt as though I was just not taking the proper time to really focus on what my client wanted. Management was terrible. The head manager there acts as though she is in high school and doesn't really seem to care for her employees. The coworkers were very nice. Over-all I would not recommend this place to anyone to work at.

Fast-paced, high energy job
MANAGER (Current Employee), British ColumbiaDecember 23, 2015
On average, myself and my employees would do between 17-25 haircuts per day. I learned to do quality haircuts in a short amount of time. The hardest part of my job was accomodating the staffs scheduling needs. The most enjoyable part was the customer interaction.

Typical day at work would be to set your station up clean and proper be professional for your customers gives outstanding customer service. The management was great at this location its like a small family connection basis, great team work/support. I love to cut hair so I would say that's the most enjoyable part.

Productive fun work place
Receptionist (Former Employee), Bowmanville, ONApril 30, 2015
Great Clips has a good working atmosphere with a team of staff who are driven and professional. You are always busy as there are always returning customers and new customers who walk away happy with their hair cut. It was a wonderful opportunity to work in such a great work environment and have the customers leaving happy.

Too much drama between co-workers especially with moving from store to store.
Manager was not present often enough.
Fighting over stations was a problem.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with customers.

Mediocre work places
Receptionist (Former Employee), Maple Ridge BCFebruary 23, 2015
Pros: free lunches
Cons: long hours
I was a receptionist not a hair dresser so the work was easy and the pay was sufficient. Fellow employees often bickered and made for a tense work place.

Its alright
Apprentice Hairstylist (Former Employee), Burlington, ONJanuary 12, 2015
You are pushed really hair to get your haircuts done in 15 minutes. You cannot style the hair with any brushes, so you dont gain a whole lot of clientele because they dont walk out looking like they just came from the salon.

Receptionist (Former Employee), Maple Ridge, BCSeptember 9, 2013
I usually enjoyed going into work, meeting new people and hanging out with the coworkers, I learned how to work a touch screen register and how to have excellent customer service. My coworkers were great, everyone is very friendly there. The hardest part of the job was the slow days, hardest part was standing for eight hours with no chair.
