    Poor Management, constant decrease in pay

    Massage Therapist (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsCoworkers ROCK. They are amazing (but they dont pay my bills).

    ConsThis review is on the practices of Steiner Leisure. Steiner owns The Bliss brand.
    Steiner has continually decreased commissions it pays the techs and increased the prices of the services.

    Commissions have gone from 40% of the service, down to 25-35%, and then down to 14.5% and now, because minimum wage is going up to $9.00 (in California) an hour, Steiner is decreasing commission again. The new rate will be 13.25%.

    So a 1 hour massage is $125. The tech will get $16.56 plus the new minimum wage of $9.00 for a WHOOPING $25.56 (plus a tip...sometimes) if, and I really mean if the tech is booked up, otherwise, it's minimum wage.

    For a massage therapist that is expected to perform at a high level and have high standards, we are not compensated properly. Its like Steiner has champagne taste for talent but a beer budget to pay us. There are zero incentives and we have NEVER gotten a raise, cost of living increase....nada. Minimum wages goes up and they drop out commission so that there is no changes for them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvertise or charge a flat rate for the services and let us, the therapists, focus on doing our jobs. We are not salesmen. The expectations to have us sell, sell, sell is unfair. The situation needs to be win, win.

    Stop offering a seemingly monthly coupon/groupon/promo. You have CHEAPENED the brand by doing this.
    This does not help business. It keeps people away until you offer a new promo.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stay away if you can help it

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLocated in a great neighborhood in SOHO

    ConsI have never worked in such a dysfunctional place in my life. Backstabbing, managers blaming lower level employees for their own mistakes and getting away with it. Upper management oblivious.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis company has had a huge turnover in employees in the last 2 years. Think about that...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
