Front Desk Receptionist/ Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Sterling, VA – April 29, 2016
awesome place to work at if management is good but at this massage envy the assistant manager has favorites. if they like you, you basically get away with anything and get the schedule you want. it's not a secure job you can get fired at any time if you don't meet the sales goal. you also have to attend meetings with a regional manager and learn a script 2 pages long, if you don't learn it you get fired.
Free monthly massage or facial and very flexible schedule
you can get fired for anything; if you dont meet sales goal, if you dont know the sales script, they cut your hours, very low pay
Massage Therapist (Former Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – June 1, 2017
My typical day at Massage Envy was to check in, and make sure the massage room I was using was supplied with what I needed. Most of the time while I was at work, I had a full book, which meant I had clients to massage. While I was there, I became Lead Therapist which meant handling the new hires, training them, doing their background check, helping with any outside promotions (chair massage). The workplace was like a family. Everyone helped out each other.
working back to back on clients with no or little break
I have never had so much pride while working for any other company! Not only do I have full control over my schedule and how many massages I'm able to do a day, but I've never had such a supportive management team. Going to back to school and needing to change my schedule was such a breeze instead of a headache. A great company to work for and such a healing, positive atmosphere.
Good company, great business model, and something to be proud of
It's easy to wear yourself out, stay aware of what you can do

Working for massage envy was a generally good experience. Workplace drama was annoying, but it wasnt horrible. Owner is really great and friendly, but some massage therapist were annoying and thought they had superiority over me because i worked the front desk. Overall, pretty good place to work.

It's very cliquey, the girls you work with can be rude, snobby, and over step their boundaries. Management favors the people who sale the most. Management was good to work around my schedule. BUT DO NOT SAY YOU CAN WORK SUNDAYS. the only time i got a sunday off was if i requested it. i had no life outside of work. plan on late night shifts, and poor work conditions. you will have to stand your whole shift, and they don't give you anything to help support your body. Overall just don't work here.
Very rushed work environment. Management was very much into massage envy but not you the employee. Manager had a fiery anger whenever I brought something up that needed to be discussed (Felt like I was in the principle's office). They do offer benefits which is a plus. They raised the membership rate as soon as I was hired so, many members dropped off. All the while telling me that I must be doing something wrong because I wasn't building my book. "I didn't raise the price of the membership". It was very much an Office Space (the movie) environment. I wasn't going to write anything but, apparently I'm required to on this site and now that I think back to working here I was very stressed out all the time.
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Westlake, OH – May 31, 2017
I worked at the Westlake store for about two days. I left because they gave me a hard time into learning what to say when cmon it had been only two days. They just throw you into the lions. I'm not good at remembering long speeches and it seems like all they want is for you to sell memeberships and nothing else. Plus it's bad pay. Go somewhere else.
Not a great long term job but definitely a great experience for recent grads. I worked there for 2 years and i gained a lot of experience and met a lot of amazing people. I never received a raise even though promised but i am grateful for my time there.

Massage Therapist (Former Employee) – Mishawaka, IN – May 29, 2017
I was there for a year and it was fine at first, but then it was bad. Lots of unethical things went on. Like the fact that if you were sick, they made you come in. Not to mention my coworker was ill with bronchitis, had a Dr's note, and still was told he took too much time off. Plus, we were told not to work on anyone who had surgery less than six weeks earlier, but if someone came in, we had to work on them.
I was a good place to work for me it was just a job
Massage Therapist (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – May 29, 2017
They need to just start over with massage envy as a whole . They never hired people who knew the job. Everyone in management had to learn to do the job. When it came to a pay raise it never went up but was always up for a cut. I only think massage envy is good for work experience not for a person to stay and make a true living working there

Sales/Front Desk (Former Employee) – Arizona – May 28, 2017
It's okay for your first job, or as your part time job. But as a full time job I honestly don't think it's worth it. Hopefully it gets better. But like I said it's a great first time job. To get some experience under the belt.
Front Desk Associate (Former Employee) – Seal Beach, CA – May 26, 2017
Management was terrible. Pay was terrible. Managers weren't always reachable. They were often short staffed. People were quitting or being fired because no one liked the management. The entire operation was completely unorganized.
Great place to start and grow as a massage therapist. Very flexible with your schedule. Its a great place to learn more of the massage industries. The only con I would say is the pay rate, to low for the work performance that we do.
Receptionist and Wellness Consultant (Current Employee) – Augusta, GA 30909 – May 26, 2017
I loved working at Massage Envy. It was very relaxing even on major holidays. I was a wellness consultant so my position was to push membership sales which was difficult at first. Management was not really consistent. The most enjoyable part of the job was of course free massages and the staff was considered family.
