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

Pros

They take their training seriously. They have on the job training that allows new technicians the opportunity to shadow a seasoned employee beforehand. It builds confidence and consistency. They also compensate nicely with sales. It was a good place to get your feet wet if you are new to the industry.

Cons

The management was under so much pressure that it trickled down to the everyone. If you were unfortunate to work for an unethical clinic manager, you had little opportunity for growth. They kept you working long hours, and for little acknowledgement. There also was a lot of backbiting amongst staff. It was quite juvenile.

Advice to Management

Realize that your employees are your greatest equity. Treat them better and they might stick around longer. Change your value system to reflect honesty to be more important. Stop allowing unethical management to hang around because they run off all the new talent.

    Pros

    Steady work and experience in laser hair removal

    The hours you worked changed constantly. There was rarely enough time between appointments to do basic things like eat lunch. Very sales-oriented

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

    Pros

    Good pay. Can be a fun atmosphere at times. Free services

    Cons

    Very stressful and unrealistic expectations from management without being equipped to do the job. Morally, the company is "iffy" at best. Unprofessional at times.

    Advice to Management

    The clinic managers need more sales training and tangible, tactical ways to do their job. Not just empty, non-helpful, pep rally like conference calls that cheer "You can do it!" with out giving any REAL ways TO do it.
