I'm currently enrolled at Emily Griffith Barber school. I feel that it has taught me a great deal about how to cut hair, in the regard that we have extensive hands on applications when it comes to accepting customers from the public. I have learned by mistakes that I have made and how to correct them from my instructors. I feel like I'm constantly learning new material and new skills and am willing to build on those skills.

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.

About Barber

August 30th, 2017

A barber provides grooming services, such as the cutting and trimming of hair. This may involve shampooing before and after the cutting of hair. A barber may also style the hair in the final step before completing the service. Barbers may also trim beards and give shaves. Barbers often operate out of barbershops, and typical hours will vary by location and clientele. Depending on your location, barbers may need to be licensed. Customer service and customer satisfaction are key performance areas, and are dependent on the barbers’ knowledge and application of haircutting and hair styling techniques.

You may find out about vacancies in the local newspaper classifieds or any other publication or website that caters to the local community. You might even apply by contacting the barbershop directly. The interview may be conducted by the owner/manager of the barbershop and/or a senior barber. Concerns for the interviewers will vary and may focus on punctuality, technical skill, and customer service. Many barbershops cater to a certain clientele, and you’ll be expected to prove that you can effectively cut and style hair according to the standards of that clientele. You may be asked to provide photos of your past work. You’ll also be expected to provide good customer service.

You can prepare for an interview by thinking of times when you turned a negative into a positive. Barbershops rely on repeat business, so customer service is the key skill to build loyalty in customers. You can also prepare a portfolio of photos that showcase the best of your work. If you had any challenging haircuts, recall why it was difficult and how you overcame that obstacle. Research the barbershop’s clientele: what will the people who go there want in terms of style and service? Show up to the interview prepared to prove that you can provide that to their clients.
