    I worked at Steiner Leisure full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    very good way to see the world, meet a lot of people from different cultural backgrounds, good remuneration if you can sell products and yourself for treatment bookings

    Cons

    very long hours of work, often 11 hour-12 hour days, five and a half days a week, selling is an integral part of the job and this will dictate if you succeed in the company not your skill at beauty hair or fitness

    Advice to Management

    more frequent proactive reviews of individual staff to analysis potential candidates for promotion and also taking into account that staff who may not be able to sell a lot may still have great potential to lead a team. more information to staff and what it is to live and work on ships for steiner, positive and negatives...

    I worked at Steiner Leisure as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As an acupuncturist straight out of school who was not independently wealthy, I quickly became aware of the lack of job prospects and massive student loans. Steiner's job posting advertised, "Travel the world, make money, do acupuncture", I submitted my application and in a month, I was in Australia boarding my first ship.
    Working onboard has many perks for acupuncturists:
    - Captive, older clientele, who are seeking pain solutions and interested in trying something new.
    - A revolving patient base and the ability to see up 20+ clients a day, with a new flood of patients regularly (amazing professional experience. You get thousands of new cases in a contract).
    - No competition from other alternative healthcare providers.
    - No dealing with insurance.
    - All resources are provided and absolutely no overhead.
    - A competitive, commission based pay structure. Some months, you can be the most highly paid person on the ship.
    - No living expenses and what you make is what you save. Room and board, meals, laundry and cleaning service included. Spa services are traded for. It can spoil you.
    - Officer status and free run of the ship.
    - Days off are in places like Greece and Tahiti (at least 1.5 days a week).
    - All the money you make you save, and when you come out, you are an experienced, seasoned acupuncturist with the marketing, networking, public relations and clinical experience needed to launch your private practice. It's like that residency program that we all want when we left school.

    Cons

    Before you take this job, search your soul. When you take this job, be open minded and flexible.

    - You live inside a corporation, which means there are lots of rules to follow 24/7. Your friends are your co-workers, and the title, "Acupuncturist", becomes your identity.
    - Most Spa Managers are younger and less experienced than we are and life can be hard if you don't get along. They do have authority though, and can make life difficult if you challenge them. The trick is to do a good job and treat your Spa Managers with respect. Listen and understand their struggles and support them where you can.
    - Commission based pay structure can be difficult on some ships and on some itineraries.
    - Communication with everyone in your land life becomes difficult and expensive.
    - Contracts are at least 7 months, and can seem like a million years.
    - Social life revolves around the crew bar scene for most. You can get around this by focusing on port activities.
    - After a few consecutive contracts, it becomes hard to imagine life on land.
    - It makes your world much bigger, which makes it harder to settle down in a place like Chicago when you have experienced places like Copenhagen and Auckland.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps a resilience and personality inventory should be done prior to employment to screen out people who will clearly not succeed in the fast-pace, high stress, corporate and sometimes restrictive environment. New seminars should be introduced occasionally highlighting current research. Targets would be more achievable if cruise demographics, such as departure port, day of week and average price per ticket were taken into account. A burnout hotline would have been helpful at certain points of my career. All in all, I am complementary of the management.

    Pros

    The salary system changed already but if you are not a fan of commission based salary than you will find it hard.

    Cons

    Commission based salary. If you are motivated and love what you do it is a great way to make money while helping the customers to find their favorite treatments.
