    "About what you'd expect"

    Current Employee - Tan Associate 

    I have been working at Palm Beach Tan part-time

    Pros

    Very chill environment, store managers are chill and willing to help.

    Cons

    Summer is soooo slow, which can be good or bad. Upper management has unrealistic sales expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Training program for new employees needs to be simplified and redone. I passed training exams with flying colors but had no idea what I was doing afterward.

    I have been working at Palm Beach Tan part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Small stores tend to be more relaxed and self driven, while bigger stores tend to be more rigorous and strict with rules. Bigger stores have more opportunities for larger amount of commission, but smaller stores have the benefit of really knowing your customer base. One awesome thing about working here is 50% all products and free uv and spray tanning. Another great thing is most managers will work with your schedule,...

    Cons

    Pays minimum wage and commission on most items sold is only 5%. Smaller locations do not have an employee break room to sit, and employees are asked to not sit or eat behind the counter. Upper management is very disconnected with how the smaller salons run and offer misguided and unhelpful advice on how to increase sales. When there are competitions within stores to win things, often times the prizes are low end...

    Advice to Management

    Increase wages, decrease strictness in rules for smaller salons that don't see as much foot traffic, increase quality of training, make sure smaller salons have the things they need to succeed

    I worked at Palm Beach Tan full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed hiring the girls and giving them a place that they could come and have fun and make money. I loved my entire staff and still are close to them today.

    Cons

    Corporate -DMs HR OWNER.... all of them are selfish and bullies. They have unrealistic expectations and then leave you to handle your store alone with no support, just constantly driving you into the ground. They don’t care if you’re a single mom or that you’re working 60 hours a week with no overtime pay. They just want you to do whatever it takes to get exactly what they want done. They hate when you’re liked by your...

    Advice to Management

    Micro-managing already hard workers will push everyone out the door. Y’all lost some good ones, I hope you’re happy.

    I have been working at Palm Beach Tan part-time

    Pros

    Free tanning and I have met some great people, both coworkers and customers! At least better than working in the food industry.

    Cons

    Awful pay--they mask this with "commissions" but bottom line, sales are inconsistent and partly based on luck of the draw; you could be making nearly double somewhere else without having to attempt to sell overpriced lotions. Many managers tell their customers what days they will be there so that those clients only buy from them, which makes it impossible as a newcomer to make any money from commissions anyways. Often...

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees; the high turnover rate is not a gd mystery. Entire company needs to raise wages. We are in the 21st century now. People would stay despite all the massive problems if the pay was enough to buy a pack of ramen noodles every now and again.

    I worked at Palm Beach Tan full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free tanning is the biggest perk

    Cons

    Management. You'll notice people moving up after sketchy events take place. Employees doing by the book are passed over.

    Advice to Management

    Close at 9 with 2 closers, 1 closer opens you up for problems with LP.

    I worked at Palm Beach Tan part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I wish that I could say something good, but unfortunately I can not. If I could give this job zero stars I would. The only pro I can come up with is making good friends and the free tanning.

    Cons

    There are many cons. So many I can’t list them all. The management was absolutely awful. We were accused of stealing, our phones were gone through, and the childish rumors and talk was insane.

    Advice to Management

    This store would best benefit from new management all the way around. Starting fresh and getting rid of the immature management in this store would bring forth great employees and a friendly environment.
