    I worked at The Tan Company (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment, great people, fast paced, rarely boring, great training, easy job if you want it to be, awesome opportunities for connections and networking because of the repeat customer base

    Cons

    The general starter position (bed runner) job can get old, takes a while to get "promoted", very connection/family/friend only hires.

    Advice to Management

    Step outside the family friend only employee circle, do more training, warn about the fast paced environment because not everyone is meant for it.

    I worked at The Tan Company full-time

    Pros

    Discounted massage and facial services. Free tanning.

    Cons

    Everything else. Management is rude, horrible long hours (salary). Conversations are loud and vulgar-drunken bar quality.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough people for the work that needs to be done and quit burning out your current employees.

    I have been working at The Tan Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love working for The Tan Company! They are awesome to their employees, and there is always room for improvement and moving up in the company. They offer commission opportunities, and treat all their locations as one. I really enjoyed this job!

    Cons

    With there being so many locations, effective communication is sometimes difficult.
