    Pros

    My first job out of Esthetics school was at American Laser Skincare. It is a good place to start and gain experience.

    Management was a little unorganized and unfair but other than the experience wasn't bad and the pay is not bad.

    I worked at American Laser Skincare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great pay lots of support from regional manager

    Cons

    upper management did not inform employees of financial issues within the company. Within a couple of hours all employees found out the company was closing and we were all terminated

    Advice to Management

    Business is no longer open. I feel money management has a lot to do with the closing

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Employees are hard workers, have a lot of knowledge about services. Good initial training program.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities- at times sales were the only thing being pushed instead of the priority being on the best treatments for the client. At times clients would purchase unnecessary treatments at the advice of the medical estheticians because the clinic manager was pushing them to meet their sales goals. After a while patients would of course figure this out and feel used.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee has proven themselves and consistently met their sales goals, and would like to be considered for promotion, hear them out or actually consider them, or they might look for other employment opportunities.

    I worked at American Laser Skincare part-time

    Pros

    I made one friend working here.

    Cons

    the people, the pay, the company product itself, pretty sure I was back in high school with this position. We had to sign out to use the bathroom so no more than 2 people were gone at a time.

    Advice to Management

    go out of business... oh wait.

    Pros

    contests, keeping it as fun as it can be to be when working 60 hours a week just dying to get our bonus.

    Cons

    not enough support for certain managers. favoritism based on who could kiss you know what better, cheerleader peppy type of personality encouraged, All women in company can make for a lot of drama.

    Advice to Management

    Don't focus so much on sales to the point where you are constantly threatening peoples jobs for going one month without hitting their bonus. Sales has ups and downs and we shouldn't feel like were going to lose our jobs because of one bad month
