    Pros

    Love working with clients, feeling a sense of accomplishment because the job is mainly sales, awesome manager, teamwork, free tanning

    Cons

    The pay..ive been working here almost a year and even though my sales are outstanding, they still havent given a raise. Dont expect to make more than minimum wage. Commission is taken away if sales arent daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are professionals, pay us like professionals! Also commission should be worked out better. Don't take away commission if we dont reach stats...we sold the product, we deserve it.

    Pros

    Meeting new people, training, and client service.

    Cons

    The hours and the people who always called out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that you have a dedicated team of people, and just not some that "need a job"

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, opportunity to advance, commission.

    Cons

    Your sales for one day can basically make or break you. If you have a bad day it can seriously effect the money you make because you lose money if your average falls.

    I have been working at Sun Tan City part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The girls I work with, the management, and the training is there if you want it. You have the ability to make good money through sales.

    Cons

    Always getting called to pick up shifts. It is a sales job before all else, so if you can't sell don't apply. Much more than standing up front looking cute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take it easy on the store managers. They do everything regular employees do, plus have to keep up with reports, trainings, paperwork, hiring, sales goals and so much more. They are also on call all the time. Cut them some slack.

    I have been working at Sun Tan City part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    free tanning, friendly staff, commission, easy to work and go to school

    Cons

    we do get commission but it's very little... I'd be lucky to make $2 a day in commission and it goes down every time you don't sell something. The SD's push selling only to their benefit, they get the majority of everyones commission for each store. Before I found this out I was talking to my Salon Director about how little my bonus is and she replies "Tell me about it", then I found out on average her bonus is $600 while me and the other TC's barely push $50. While pushing to sell it easily makes the clients uncomfortable, forcing them to buy things they don't really want or need. We get paid almost minimum wage of $7.50 an hour without raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give raises to employees who deserve it, SD's shouldn't be telling TC's about their personal lives, and raise the percentage of money we keep from selling products.

    Pros

    Sun Tan City is a great place to work if you're a college student looking for a part-time job. They're professional, and they're extremely flexible with scheduling hours.

    Cons

    The only downfall of working at Sun Tan City is working during prom season. Sometimes there are way too many clients to keep up with, and you literally have to run around the salon until you're dripping in sweat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was never a problem while I worked here.
