STylist (Former Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 11 July 2017
Sport clips was fun to work at in terms of procedure as well as daily activities. The problem that I had was with management as well as the owners of the store. They claimed they wanted a drama free environment when in reality, the store was filled with drama and theft. Love the company, maybe a different location would work better.

Hate this company . Ok although I loved my co workers but the way this work is you won't get far in this company . They put their favourite as manager or assistant manager with very little pay . It's not based on how good you work or make money for the company . They will insist to keep you working with them but they can't actually stay on what they promise you . It's a cheap place to work at . If you want to practice on your haircuts go ahead and work there for a while if not don't even think about having a career future with this cheap company .

I've learned a lot working for SportClips. The clients are amazing as well as the staff. It's a good environment to work in doing men and boys cuts. Everyone always encourages you to be the best you can be.

There is no stability with hours. I have been emplyed since the store opened in 2014 and have seen 2 assistant managers and we are currently on manager #5 and assistant manage #3 and turn over upon turnover in staff. Sexism has been a personal issue for myself( unable to wear make up and had to provide a Dr note to avoid being punished for not wearing any) Pattern of poor management develops with each management change Hardest part of the day is having favoured employees come and go as they please,not contribute to salon cleaning duties, call in sick and not having to provide coverage) The most enjoyable is being busy for a full day with clients and perform salon duties as required.The hands on work and keeping busy is a must . Lack of understanding and cooperation with the Employment Standard act (lunch breaks) Corporate Policies and Expectations seem threatening and unattainable.
friendly customers, creative hands on work
unexpected hours, Sexist Owner, Poor management, Large staff turnover
