    I worked at Palm Beach Tan part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of hours, friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Lack of decent management, will work you right at 39.4 hours so you aren't full time, a lot of jealousy and internal issues, base pay raises and promotions based on who management likes and not on merit, even higher up management acted as if they were better than everyone

    Advice to Management

    Don't play favorites, if you're going to work someone right under 40 hours make sure you are more forgiving when they ask for days off or not to work certain times.

    I worked at Palm Beach Tan part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy job, commission is a bonus, free tanning, shifts are do able, managers are usual lax, computer system is simple, discounted products, insurance for full time employees

    Cons

    The lax atmosphere is means for a high school like environment. Be weary of the drama aspect of this job.

    Advice to Management

    More incentives for passing audit scores (tanning consultants benefit nothing from passing audits) management will try to make you slave so they get their bonus

    I worked at Palm Beach Tan full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you have a good manager, you will learn how to sell products and services. It will help you develop good sales skills. Most of the locations have a good clientele and you have the ability to make good money.

    Cons

    Sometimes customers will lie about an issue on the customer service reviews that are sent to the customer by corporate. Your manager will not take your side. Management does not help with cleaning duties and audit cleaning. You will be cleaning beds, mopping floors, and scrubbing toilets. The managers receive a bonus for having a good cleaning audit score. Employees do not receive a bonus for keeping the store clean for the customers. Some managers help you with the cleaning duties. Most managers will camp at the front counter and hawk all the sales while you're cleaning the entire store. This makes it very difficult to be promoted at the company. The human resources department isn't that involved with issues at the stores. District Managers do not have a very good method of motivating employees. It's all about numbers. They are not very good at developing employees or training employees.

    Advice to Management

    Gather insight from employees who work under managers. Lots of deals and sales are being stolen by managers. Some managers have unethical business practices. Managers are purposely looking for reasons to write-up employees to keep their job and make other employees look bad at the company.
