The Employment Application

The Employment Application – Introduction:

It appears to have become common practice when recruiting new team members to accept resumes in place of Employment Applications that have been completed by the prospective employee.

This is a mistake for many reasons which we’ll cover in this module.

Deceptive Resumes
Unfortunately, resumes may appear to provide all the necessary information you require before making a hiring decision, but in fact they can be (read that as usually are) very creative as well as extremely deceptive.


Hiring new staff members is not only time consuming but an extremely costly exercise.  Therefore hiring without sufficient information about your potential new employee is something that needs to be avoided.

A well constructed Employment Application allows you to gather all the necessary information to make an informed decision about your next new team member thus avoiding a major headache.

The 10 Minute Phone Interview

The 10 Minute Phone Interview – Introduction:

You might wonder why you should bother doing a quick 10 minute phone interview with job applicants. Isn’t it just easier to get the person to come to the salon with their resume, and go from there?

The get ‘em in and get ‘em hired approach may get you a new employee quick-smart, but will it get you a great employee who will stay long term in your salon, and be a real asset to your business?

Most likely not!


Recruiting new staff is a very important part of your business, and getting the right team member can even make or break your salon.

This essential phone interview strategy will ensure only the right job prospects make it through to the interview stage, ensuring your valuable time is not wasted and you don’t hire from an emotional position.

This module includes a PDF document outlining:

  • A complete list of questions for job applicants with an explanation as to why you need to ask them, before bringing them in for an interview.
