    I worked at Palm Beach Tan part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -great co-workers, managers, and clients
    -free tanning, 50% discount off products
    -commission based on sales (memberships, lotions, walk ins)
    -great opportunity to move up the ladder.

    Cons

    -late night hours
    -early opening
    -at times, it can be a very slow paced environment
    -low sales equals a low pay check
    -the cleaning duties are extensive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the words of the shift leaders when discussing issues with store managers. Store managers always seemed to have a "close" relationship with the reginal manangent, which lead to favoritism.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Palm Beach Tan in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied in person on a monday, she asked if i could come in on wednesday for an interview. They were super easy questions and really fast interview. It took like ten minutes. I didn't get the job because I go to school in a different state so I'm only home for summers. The first interview was in the store just on the couches. Second interview was in the corporate office which was annoying because it was a long drive downtown. That was also with just one woman and it was about 5 minutes because it ended early when she realized I'm leaving for school.

    Interview Questions
    • All super easy. Upset customer you had to deal with and what you did. Your least favorite job and why. She asked 4 different ways to use a bobby pin.   Answer Question
