FAQ's

How long does the recruitment process take?

We like to move quickly so you can secure a position in 1-3 weeks from your first application - That’s great so you can start planning your move!

What do I need to prepare for my job application?

We don’t need a lot of information to get started- just an application with a few details (check out our careers page for the application). We will need to contact some work references and you’ll need to put together a CV lisiting your qualifications (if any) and your work experience.

Do I need to be qualified?

It is not necessary to be qualified. We are looking for great people with the right attitude who want to work on their career and
like our culture.

If you are an international applicant- your qualifications may count towards some work visa types so check that out on the immigration NZ site www.immigration.govt.nz

What type of work visa should I get?

There are different options for people wanting to take a working holiday, or settle for a long time.  Check out the option that best suits your situation at www.immigration.govt.nz

What if I can’t deliver a wet shave?

That’s ok, in fact if you are the right person for the job we will provide any technical training you need!

How do I get paid?

You have a secure income from the day you start. We pay top wages for team members and an annual salary for some leadership positions.

 As you progress you can earn great bonuses for hitting weekly revenue targets, and extra allowances!

Where will I be working?

We will work with you to chose the best Store location for you!

We will look at where you currently or would like to live, the lifestyle you enjoy, and where we have a great opportunity so you have the best chance to develop your career.

If out of Auckland is where you want to be...Initially you will work in Auckland and once you are settled and have really learned the ropes we can look at transfers to one of the regions!

What do I wear?

Look clean, tidy, professional and sharp! We can guide you but there's plenty of room to be yourself as well!

What Tools will I need?

Our stores are stocked full of great products, superior work station set ups so you just need to bring your tools.

We use rechargable cordless tools and you’ll want to have a set of tools ready for your arrival and preferrably without an adaptor box. We can source any of these items for you and have them ready for your first day! 

You’ll need Clippers, Trimmers, guards, combs, cut throat /straight razor, shears, neck brush and  blow dryer. 

I'm moving to NZ- What do I need to bring?

Mostly just yourself!

It pays to get important documents like birth certificates, qualifications and references letters etc as they can be harder to get access to from afar. 

You can bring your tools but we prefer cordless gear and be aware that you will need adapters for chargers.
