Fun work environment, helps maintain my body to be in healthy condition.
Licensed Massage Therapist (Current Employee), Eagle River, AK – January 31, 2014
Pros: free membership to the gym locations, interactive clients and comfy atomosphere
Cons: 2 four hour shifts, unfair hours compared to other coworking lmts, sent home early after last client.
I have a set amount of hours and only two shifts, Sunday and Monday. I have a 15 breather to clean and setup my massage room in between sessions, making sessions easier to begin early or suggest to clients how to maintain their road to improvement for better health or performance. My Coworkers are just fun to be around. We're all relatively in our 20s – more... but we have a good sense of professionalism and when we run into a issue or obstacle, we quickly work together to solve said issue. My manager is a great source of help, however unless she is in the office she's rather unreachable. So the best course of action is to leave notes on her desk or leave voicemails on her machine and when she comes into the workplace, she asks me to come in and inform her of whatever I may need. Clientele is slow at times, but I would say I'm busy 60% of the shift. I'm booked on the day of rather than people scheduling with me in advance.
The hardest part of this position is I've given such low hours because I'm not booked more than 65% of the shift. I am not allowed business cards, I may not give out chair massage outside of the gym to put my name out in the community. The massage chair was broke for over a month and it was cheaply repaired. It will break the next time I use it and it's too costly to the gym apparently to purchase a chair of durable quality. The only way my clientele builds if the small clientele that sees me gives out word of mouth to other potential clients. – less
Fitness Instructor I (Former Employee), Anchorage, AK – December 31, 2013
Pros: free membership
Cons: pay for everything else.
Did more cleaning than fitness instructing. Enjoyed getting to know the members. Worked by myself so did not get to work with my co-workers or know them very well. Really liked my first supervisor before she moved.
