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

    Pros

    Free services included with employment.. that's really all I can say. Sometimes people would leave you a tip. Not much more.

    Cons

    Employing younger people will result in laziness and entitlement. I don't know how many time I would be on my hands and knees cleaning because the other employees felt it wasn't part of their job. The owner felt just as entitled as them. You can't expect great things if you don't but some effort, too! Worst place to work!!

    Advice to Management

    Look into stores more and figure out what needs to fixed.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, free use of most of the services, great employee discount.

    Cons

    Absolutely no room for growth, pay rate is too small, but would be good for an employee in high school or just out of college.

    Pros

    Free services and discounted retail items
    Form relationships with loyal clients
    Decent hours

    Cons

    Each franchise owner is different.. but mine was all about the money and didn't care about quality. Bulbs were out, rooms dirty, machines faulty or held together underneath by tape.. would force customer payments through if they were declined.. HIGH turnover rate, crap pay.

    Advice to Management

    Check in on your franchises more.. have standards!

    I worked at Planet Beach full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's nice to have a job that involves making people feel better about themselves. I feel like the work is fairly easy. In my spa we always had a "bed cleaner" so I wasn't having to sell and clean at the same time.

    Cons

    I feel like some of the products are bogus. Now I have a medical background and can see where some of the products couldn't possibly do what they claim.

    Advice to Management

    To not nickel and dime the customers. They are constantly trying to charge the customers for every little tiny thing, the customers would be a lot more happy and more willing to purchase services if they didn't have 10 things to buy for each individual service.

    Pros

    You got free spa services, which made up for the fact that you were doing 4 people's jobs for minimum wage lol

    Cons

    Minimum wage, minimal training but you'd get punished for not knowing something, no flexibility because they wouldn't hire anyone else to help, a manager that never comes in because why would they when you'll do their job too

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough people to do the job, and consider raises for employees who deserve them!!
