    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...

    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.

    I have been working at Steiner Leisure full-time

    Pros

    A focused company who is a leader in their industry. Strong financial background. Well respected product lines like Bliss and Mandara.

    Cons

    The CIO and IT department had too much red tape, and could not deliver projects on time. Could improve communication between various internal business partners to achieve savings, and eliminate duplicate work.

    Pros

    Very friendly staff and a great HR department.

    Cons

    Work during holidays and company events.
    Yearly bonus generally was only 30-40% of one month salary.

    Advice to Management

    Management was very distant, especially for a small team. It would be better to try and connect with the members of your team.

    Pros

    The travel is amazing and getting more time of then some other company's offer is great too. Plenty of room to advance your career within the company as they generally promote from within

    Cons

    Long contracts of 7-9 months. Vacations can be short for the time spent away from home but that depends. Time off during contracts can be limited to half days only which really wears down your energy. Land bases directors can sometimes not be great assistance. Pay can be awful if on long cruises regardless of ship size or business.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through with conference calls and call ins on an ongoing basis. The time wasted calling out from ship at set times to fitness directors or directors of operation to get no answer is unproductive and disheartening. Impliment a decent supplementary wage from cruises longer the 14 days regardless of ship size.
