    Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mechanicsburg, PA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Elements Massage (Mechanicsburg, PA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    It was a total nightmare. I was a HIGHLY over-qualified candidate that was just trying to give the location a chance. The first "part" of the interview lasted almost 3 hours because the owner (who was the one "interviewing" me) just selected random skills tests without reviewing their content first. She also bad-mouthed her current employees throughout the "interview." To add insult to injury, she then asked me to return several hours later to meet her husband, who had no relation to the operation of the business, because "she had been a bad judge of character recently." I begrudgingly agreed only to be subjected to a painless but redundant 45 minute interview that evening.

    Reasons for Declining

    I received the initial offer before i could even arrive home (I live less than 15 minutes away) and the owner tried to pressure me into accepting the offer on the spot. She was annoyed when i asked for the offer in writing and some time to think it over. She called 2 more times before emailing the offer to "amend" it. Ultimately when I attempted to do the polite thing and reject the offer over the phone, she initially said "okay" but then called me back 10 minutes later to try to get me to change my mind. She got very nasty and manipulative because I wouldn't give in.

    Interview

    I submitted a resume on indeed. She called me within a week. I went in, the interview was with owner and manager. The interview was more them selling it to me.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Elements Massage in April 2013.

    Interview

    I had originally applied at a different location then chose the current due to the initial taking too long to complete permitting paperwork. Both interviews werre comprised of a 15-20 minute sit down, 55-minute hands-on interview massage, and then a sit down for offer. The 1st sit down was only a few questions about previous experience, how I would take care of certian situations and what my strengths were.

    Licensed Massage Therapist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Elements Massage (San Antonio, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Its a quick 10 minute interview with the manager followed by 20 minute spot massage. I got offered the job on the spot. I end up working there only three days because they lied to me in the interview saying you have 10 minutes between clients. The really give you just 5 minutes in between clients. I told the manager and her reply was, "Well when its this busy, we do them back to back." On my third day of 5 in a row, back to back, I quit. Pay was decent at $20.50 per 45 minute Swedish massage plus tips. But the tips were low on average about $5 each. My assumption is they were that low because they (clients) felt rushed, were told its an hour massage amd only get 45-50 minutes. Also many clients had more time knocked off due to them being late, filling out paperwork and using the bathroom in addition to going thru a consultation, an upsell on membership process before the massage and again after and having to get dressed. I have 7 years experience and couldn't believe you only get 5 minutes between clients. I left after my third day, with an injury due to overwork.

    Licensed Massage Therapist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Glendale, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Elements Massage (Glendale, AZ) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by Front Desk Management, did a hands on massage for both the owner and front desk manager - two hours of free work (not customary in my experiences) and then hired only to be passed to a Lead Therapist, who was amazing at her job, but found she quit within weeks. I was also promised a pay raise within thirty days by the owner during the hands on practical at which point later I found was a lie. I was the first one NOT HIRED by this lead. My orientation was done by this Lead and come to find out she gave me a lot of "false information" because the Owner was changing everything in the poorly written policy and procedures handbook - as the legal verbiage is open to its own interpretation and Owners are allowed to do what they want based on the way the interpret the handbook. They care nothing for there employees nor do they know how to do massage or care about massage in general.

    Interview Questions

    • There was initial phone call to set up interview. I was interviewed by front desk manager - basic stuff on my resume, was told I was a good candidate for Lead because of my credentials. I was asked to come back to do two one hour massages (which is not customary in my experiences) one for front Desk Manager and Owner. (at which time the Owner promised a thirty day pay raise - false) After hands on practical she went down a basic check list of questions that were pretty standard to massage industry and then told me I was key to turning the place around. At that point, I was then handed off to the Lead Therapist who at which point gave me a lot of false information then quit within two weeks of my orientation.   1 Answer
