    I worked at California Sun Centers part-time

    Pros

    commission, discounts on products. not much else to add but i need more words to fill this box

    Cons

    corporate controls everything, "employee free tanning perks" is horrible you get the worst beds not even the level 2 beds, cut checks short and they don't give full annuity any more. high turn over rate resulting in PT employees to practically be FT

    Advice to Management

    dont control everything, let employees switch shifts, give better employee tanning, treat your employees better also APPRECIATE them more. care more about your customers as well not only the money the company brings in.

    Pros

    Free BASIC tanning is all that's good from them. And the mints

    Cons

    There is everything wrong with this company. I have naturally wavy hair with some frizz and I went with my hair like that because I rarely use product on my hair and was asked "did you just roll out of bed? Are you okay?" The owner mike is beyond disrespectful. I made a mistake (I am human) instead of helping me during this very busy time where I was by myself he decided to degrade me over the phone. Uncalled for. The way the owner runs this business is ridiculous. People come to you with their issues regarding their account being charged too much and you can't do anything on your part and the "corporate" WILL NOT do anything leaving you to deal with the customer. Also the amount of work you do for minimum wage is outstanding. They expect you to get on your hands and knees and clean the whole store 15 minutes before closing. Not do-able. And my "trainer" told me if I don't get work done clock out and do work off the clock so I won't get paid more because the owner does not want to pay me for the work and that will get me in huge trouble.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new owner. The money has gotten to his head and does not care for his employees or his clients. Make it easier for your employees in the stores to fix problems such as wrong charges.

    I worked at California Sun Centers (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free tanning. Typically easy sales job. Flexible scheduling. Sadly that's about the only pros I can come up with. . . Nothing really good about this company.

    Cons

    Corporate is horrible and rude. No one has a clue what is actually going on in the stores. Everyone there still acts like they are in high school and you can get fired based on "hear/say" which happens often. . .thus their high turn over rates!! Not to mention the lack of customer care and the way they trap people into membership and then charge them wrongly too!

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care about customers and your employees and get rid of those who only stir the pot or don't care about their job. . .not the ones who actually care!

    I worked at California Sun Centers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun people to work with, good hours (if you're a top seller), flexible schedule, good training process, free tanning and discount on products

    Cons

    Awful management! Uniforms were tacky and unflattering, poor values from corporate/creators of the company, high turnover rate, number of hours you got depends on how much an associate sells, no room for growth

    Advice to Management

    Have some respect for your employees, take into consideration that most employees work alone in a salon with angry and rude customers - try having some training sessions on how to deal with trying times
