Cons: No clientele
The only good thing I can say from my experience with working at M.E. was the tips were decent....when I actually had clients. I was an Esthetician, only worked 2 days a week, 6-7 hour shifts. Management had unrealistic expectations and thus let me go for not meeting sales requirements (reminder, I was only there 2 days a week). Even compared my sales revenue to the full-time esty's. We were once told by the owner to actually approach massage clients who sat in the "tranquility room" (probably to relax before their massage) and tell them about our facials and products. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to be bothered while in a "tranquility room". I was also lied to about my hourly pay, being told on the phone when offered a position I'd receive $9/hr but upon receiving 1st paycheck it was only $8.50. Literally every day I would sit through a whole shift without a single client. The lead esty claimed summer was "always slow". To be honest I think I was let go because I obviously wasn't needed. I planned on quitting soon anyway due to lack of income but oh well...you live and you learn! Definitely an ok place to get some experience in facials. I only trained 1 day and was immediately thrown into the job. Work with caution, don't disclose your personal life, people talk. No job security, no benefits, no real income.
