    I worked at L.A. Tan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free tanning, comfortable atmosphere, customers are friendly

    Cons

    Other employees do not take their job serious and their responsibilities fall on you. Facilities are dirty. The salon I worked at had to call Orkin every season for rodent control. There is no room for growth here WHATSOEVER. Once you become a manager you hit a wall.

    Advice to Management

    Go get yourself a job somewhere else.
