    I have been working at Planet Beach part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Hours are flexible. You have room for commission. You can use all the services for free. Interview process is very straightforward (tell me about yourself, what is your experience, what is your availability, have you worked with any other tanning facilities previously) and some behavioral questions (how would you settle issues/problems with fellow employees).

    Cons

    Equipment tends to be messed up pretty frequently, so you have to deal with customer complaints and dissatisfaction. Management makes promises of fixing a machine, buying more products, coming by to grab excess junk in the back, fixing an account or your hours, etc. but it never gets done. You have to keep checking in to make sure they remember something needs to be done, but it still never gets done or gets done 3 months later. Can be very frustrating. The commission is very low. Employees should receive more compensation for the memberships they sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do things when you say you will do them. If the printer is broken, get it fixed in a reasonable period of time. If you say you will fix a machine, then fix it instead of telling the employees every weekend that it will be fixed and then not doing it. Do more advertising, and stop relying on only your current members for referrals.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Planet Beach.

    Interview Details

    My first interview was with a group. Each person was interviewing for a different position. I think it was a general screening interview to see which person was best for which position. My second interview was for the specific position I was interested in. I met with the Director of Marketing and the CEO. I was asked questions about my past experience and what I could bring to the table.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked pretty standard questions. I had prepared for anything, so I didn't find any of the questions difficult of unexpected.   Answer Question
