    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

    I worked at American Laser Skincare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sometimes they would allow you to get a free treatment with the lasers or vela machine.

    Cons

    poor wages, poor benefits, they didn't care about the patients and were only concerned with making the sale, if there were no patients you were either sent home or had to cold call for the duration.

    Advice to Management

    change everything! I've never seen such a complete mismanaged operation with "higher ups" that could care less about their staff.

    None at all, not a single one.

    Pros

    You can make good money with sales. They also provide free training which is really nice! You get certified through the laser company.

    Cons

    They will work your butt off with hardly any breaks. You have to sell sell sell! Otherwise you get fired. They will replace you in a heart beat! Laser does not kill white hair, but you will have to sell it anyway.

    Advice to Management

    They need to treat the staff better. Especially bc the technicians are the ones to do treatments all day long without breaks! The managers lie to customers just to sell packages.

    A lot of responsibility and very fast paced, rewarding educationally. The company offered great benefits and wages to all of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate communication and organization would benefit ALL.
