Great if you like doing everyone else's job, and having them call it "teamwork".

I worked at Spa AT the Madison full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great clientele, convenient parking for free, skin care thraining through Dermalogica and Bio Sculpture.

Cons

Pay isn't very good considering minimum wage is 10$ and you'll be lucky to make 13$. Lazy employees make the new staff do all the work. Owner will expect you to be there half an hour early and stay up to an hour late. Doesn't pay overtime or holiday pay. Will take a percentage of your debit/visa tips.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Check out labour regulations. And review your staff behaviour and morale.

    I have been working at Spa AT the Madison full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have worked here for the last year and have loved it. All the clients that come in to this spa are so nice and were very understanding when I first started working here and was new in the industry. The owner is very flexible about asking for time off and really helps you in anyway to get your career going. SInce working here I have completed almost all my dermalogica classes, had training with the universal contour wraps and the eurowave. I live all the way in kitsilano but there is simply no where else i would rather work.

    Cons

    far from where i live but worth it

    I have been working at Spa AT the Madison full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Quaint day spa, with great clientele. Lots of opportunity for new esthetician to learn skills and grow professionally. Rena runs a very professional shop, although is very personally involved being such a small business. Sometimes too personal.....not necessarily bad, Lots of high quality product with opportunity to take classes and expand knowledge.

    Cons

    Not allot of walk by traffic so all clientele is word of mouth or social media driven. Service based industry so very tip dependent, as small business can't afford big salary, however comparable to industry standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More advertising and careful who you hire. Small shop can't afford negative energy as in the past, and clientele in very tight knit community so word gets around fast, can be positive and negative.
