    Pros

    flexible work schedule, lets you basically pick your own shift. you work what you can handle. no pressure. great management team.

    Cons

    tips are not consistent, they try really hard to keep you busy but sometimes hard. No room for growth.

    I worked at Massage Envy full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    All you need to do is show up and massage. If a client is a no show you receive half of the pay. (7.50) You stay booked most of the time and you work whatever hours you want. Its a good place to get your feet wet.

    Cons

    You can get burnt out really fast. Clients can be demanding. The pay isn't that great compared to the work you are putting out. $15 bucks a massage and you live off the tips which can be either really good or really bad. Its not a steady paycheck. Its like a massage farm lol

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was really good, they stay out your way and let you do your thing.

    Pros

    Absolutely no pros other than having a job while you're searching.

    Cons

    Making it through 16 hours days. This company has no cares in regards you or your family..

    I have been working at Massage Envy

    Pros

    Free massages, make great connections , great experience for beginning workers. It's a great company and definitely room for growth. I love the free facials/massages.

    Cons

    Depending on which location the owners can be very nasty and sneaky. They hardly have benefits. They need managers to care more about their jobs

    I have been working at Massage Envy full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on owner, there can be much to learn from such a well known company. The managers I have worked with have consistently done whatever possible to satisfy the clients and employees. There are many ways to move up within the company as well as numerous mentors from a variety of locations. The hourly pay could be better (though pending on your work ethic you may be eligible for a raise), but you are given the opportunity to earn bonuses and commissions. Hours are always there for those who are willing to work.

    Cons

    Hourly pay is a tad low for those living on their own, turnover can be high pending location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tap into individual employee skills and build around them, it is a sure fire way to boost morale and work ethic.

    I have been working at Massage Envy part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good work environment, feel like a person instead of a number, great place for a newly licensed estie to get her start.

    Cons

    Their facial protocols are limiting. Better results could be achieved if they allowed the estheticians to use more of their own discretion and tools. Making esties apply facial masks and exfoliants with popsicle sticks is questionable. They don't allow enough time for proper consultation and thoroughness of facial steps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the esties borrow your ear on how to best handle services.

    I have been working at Massage Envy

    Pros

    I had a wonderful manager. I also had incentives for performing my sale goals.

    Cons

    As a sales associate you don't recieve paid leave or sick days. I worked at Massage Envy for over a year and the companies structure changed to me. The organization became more rule regulated and didn't have that relax feeling like when I began.
