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.

    Pros

    Great clientele and all services that are offered at high end spas. Easy to access with free street parking and quality products and services. Opportunity to learn due to the spa carrying higher end products and working with well known product lines. Also allows for possibility to earn commission on products as well as receiving discounts for employees on great product and services. Although spa is quaint, services keep up to date with clients demands for modern services.

    Cons

    Boutique size spa so space is limited and sometimes there is a client waiting list. Not a lot of walk by traffic.

    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.
