Are you the kind of professional we like to enjoy on our team?
Phia Concepts provides recruiting services for affiliated organizations. We recruit staff who are loyal, trustworthy (clean criminal record), flexible, and have the ability to deal with change.
We recommend only positive, motivated individuals who are quick learners, who want to earn high incomes and and who have the confidence and skill to ask for whatever they need in order to be successful. If you have visions of chatting on your cell phone in the break room, or reading a magazine while you wait for clients to find you, a Phia Concept location is NOT for you!
The Phia Concepts hiring process
- Our hiring process begins with several chances for an applicant to collect information about our opportunities:
- Shadowing at least two shifts
- We recommend a morning and evening shift in a Phia Concept salon to get a feel for the salon, its layout, our team, and how the applicant might fit in as a team member, as well as how we begin and end our days
This session is an overview of the factors that unite Phia Concept Salons and and some basic operational philosophies. Pay is briefly explained (the explanation goes into greater detail in the final interview).
We like to see a complete service on a model the applicant provides, beginning with a consultation, then formulation, application, cut, and finish. The color service should include foiling somewhere on the head, cut should change the basic shape of the haircut (we don’t want to see a “trim”). We assist with formulation and mixing if an applicant is not familiar with our color line or using scales to weigh color. We also ask some basic formulation questions which will help us determine your mastery of color theory.
Successful candidates will proceed to a final interview where we review details of the position including pay and policies, ask a series of questions of the applicant and make a determination of fit.
