    great learning and character building experience with a very well known spa company that can lead to land based spa jobs

    SPA Manager (Former Employee) Miami, FL

    Prosvery good way to see the world, meet a lot of people from different cultural backgrounds, good remuneration if you can sell products and yourself for treatment bookings

    Consvery long hours of work, often 11 hour-12 hour days, five and a half days a week, selling is an integral part of the job and this will dictate if you succeed in the company not your skill at beauty hair or fitness

    Advice to Senior Managementmore frequent proactive reviews of individual staff to analysis potential candidates for promotion and also taking into account that staff who may not be able to sell a lot may still have great potential to lead a team. more information to staff and what it is to live and work on ships for steiner, positive and negatives...

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stressful Work Environment

    SPA Product Consultant (Former Employee) Fort Lauderdale, FL

    Pros-Discounts on products are offered

    Cons-nepotism
    -strict sales quota
    -expected to do the workload of 2-3 people
    -untrustworthy work environment
    -high employee turnover due to being understaffed

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on training your employees to stay for the long-term. Avoid showing favoritism and laying off employees unjustly. Take responsibility for the actions of others instead of using employees as scapegoats.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Steiner Leisure provided an international adventure that prepared me for a variety of management positions.

    SPA Manager/Massage Therapist (Current Employee)

    ProsWhile working for Steiner Leisure some of the Pros consist of but are not limited to the following:

       - Building a skill set for management
       - Being able to run the spa / column as my own personal business
       - Constant change in work, new challenges and different clientele
       - Providing service for and working with people from different parts of the world in different
         age groups
       - Traveling the world
       - Support and encouragement with growth in the company
       - Training and motivating new and existing staff

    ConsSome of the cons with working for Steiner Leisure consist of the following:

       - Not having a set salary or financial security
       - Being transferred to other parts of the world without sufficient notice
       - Inability to establish residency due to constant travel
       - Being out of the country for extended periods of time (upward of 10 months)
       - Being out of contact with family, friends and contacts for extended periods of time

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are just a few notes of advise I can give to upper management:

       - First impressions account for a lot so stay approachable
       -Treat everyone with respect and dignity as everyone is from different cultures and
         backgrounds
       - Keep and open door policy
       - Go into all situations with an open mind
       - Always listen and stay objective

    Fun and Frustrating

    Hairstylist (Former Employee) Miami, FL

    Consno money, being lied to, terrible management, 16 hrs a day work for nothing if you're on a small ship

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

    this is the worst company to work for as a massage therapist

    Massage Therapist (Former Employee) Anaheim, CA

    ProsI cannot recall any pros, except location and receiving some Disneyland benefits

    Consthey rape you on salary and tips(none) . I have never felt more uncared for, underappreciated and devalued as an employee.

    Advice to Senior Managementthe employees make the company, not the product or ill-performed services. why would you make it so difficult in every turn for the employee. taking away tips, no shows, and benefits.

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

    Horrible

    Fitness Instructor (Current Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsSee new places, meet many people

    ConsPoor treatment of spa team. We work 14-16 hours a day, making very little money, near 200-300 a month. Constantly yelled at, Yes, yelled at, talked down to if not enough make up on and then expected to go out and smile at guest after youve been chewed out. Ive had to complain to ship director for missing my meal breaks on purpose by manager. if you dont hit hourly target of selling products you dont go to lunch and by the time you get released for lunch the mess hall is closed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLead by example, but by a Good example.

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

    Abusive

    Director (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are some very hard working and well meaning people at the company. One can learn a lot from them.

    ConsDisrespectful and abusive of employees. Anachronistic early 20th century management style; very patronizing. Entire organization driven by fear reacting to fear.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease treat people with dignity and respect. It's not just a "nice" thing to do, it would actually improve bottom line results.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Unfair Practices

    (Former Employee) Coral Gables, FL

    ProsOther than traveling to nice places thats it

    ConsWhere do I start they mis treat their therapist so bad, these poor people work 12-16 hours a day sometimes only bringing home 200 a month. Yep 200 a month! They have to wear god awful make-up everyday or they are told to go back to their cabins. Managment in Miami is all about the dollars I guess because most people are foreign that gives the free will to yell at spa workers, they talk down to them constantly. I have never met so many rude people in my life its a wonder they do not have lawsuits lined up down the street but the company is based in the bahamas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNothing, Karma will take care of it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
