    I worked at Steiner Leisure full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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...

    Work on training your employees to stay for the long-term. Avoid showing favoritism and laying off employees unjustly. Take responsibility for the actions of others instead of using employees as scapegoats.

    I worked at Steiner Leisure full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I cannot recall any pros, except location and receiving some Disneyland benefits

    Cons

    they rape you on salary and tips(none) . I have never felt more uncared for, underappreciated and devalued as an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the employees make the company, not the product or ill-performed services. why would you make it so difficult in every turn for the employee. taking away tips, no shows, and benefits.

    Pros

    See new places, meet many people

    Cons

    Poor treatment of spa team. We work 14-16 hours a day, making very little money, near 200-300 a month. Constantly yelled at, Yes, yelled at, talked down to if not enough make up on and then expected to go out and smile at guest after youve been chewed out. Ive had to complain to ship director for missing my meal breaks on purpose by manager. if you dont hit hourly target of selling products you dont go to lunch and by the time you get released for lunch the mess hall is closed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example, but by a Good example.

    I have been working at Steiner Leisure

    Pros

    Free massages and skin facial from students.

    Cons

    If the management person's lips are moving, they are either lying or asking you to lie. The company posts a profit, but tells employees they suck and are not doing their jobs. The staff turn over is constantly going on. No money is ever spent to help students, students frequently can not pass courses taught by instructors with zero teaching training in their background. The staff often has to work with equipment that is broken and never replaced, often have to spend their own money to get what is needed to do what is necessary. Complain and expect to be chewed out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should become ethical, honest, and supportive of their staff. They have a lot to offer, listen to them, seek good employees and try to keep them by paying the competitively and treating them with respect due fellow human beings.

    CEO has no clue needs to question why is there a revolving door of excellent people never staying; if they do at some point they will realize why they have been missing the boat
