Hi guys,
can someone post more info regarding:

the Public Presentation,
the Written test
the practical massage we have to do with our model.

Do you think is there any limit of age? 30yo is fine?

Thanks

The written test is about common massage knowledge.
The practical was done on another applicant. I had to demonstrate the different technique I knew and she asked me some question about the technique I was using and why I wanted to work for steiner, when I will be available, if it will be an issue to share a cabin with someone else. I'm 30 and I'm starting the training in July so you should be fine

I am an american female Steiner Fitness on a ship for the past 6 months. Steiner is a huge corporation and they want you to make them money. So you work long hours, have to retail like crazy, and it can be very stressful and demanding. But shiplife is amazing! The past 6 months have been some of the most fun times of my life. The other spa girls are so much fun, the parties are crazy, the ports are beautiful. Sure it's hard work, but that's life. As long as you can work hard, and don't mind working when you are hungover, you will have a great time. And you can make good money, if you get good at retail. Don't go with some high expectations of changing lives or saving tons of money, but if you enjoy life and meeting new people, you will make the best memories forever.

My daughter was given the uniform on the first day at the Academy didnt have to pay again for it - dont forget the white shoes - she took two pairs. She also bought an Oyster Card when she got to London and used that on the bus to the Academy.

Hi Jenny
When my daughter had her interview they asked her questions relevant to her trade (hairstylist) she also did public speaking, then she had to do her models hair. They tell you that day if you have been successful or not.

Hi Jenny I have just had my interview last weekend in Exeter, they ask you things about skin care eg. What you would recommend for a clients skin etc. also be prepared for the question of why you want to work for Steiner as this is a big one. They will ask you about facial machines and what you would use and when. What yor favourite treatments to do are etc. you will have a small theory test in the morning which isn't too hard just make sure you know about skin, the different layers and different things like that. You have a public speech where you talk about yourself what you have studied and why you want to work for steiiner, you have to do this in front of all of the other applicants so be confident and make sure you smile! You will then in the afternoon have to do a neck back as shoulder massage where she will come round and ask you what your doing and what move your doing and why, don't forget to do a consultation before because she didn't tell us to and lots of us didn't! After that you have to do a skin analysis on the same person you massaged and that's it :) I hope that helped! Lol I heard the following day that I got in but I think it depends on who your interviewer is, she told us at the interview when we would hear. :)

Hi Jenny
Yes you take everything with you to the YMCA. My daughters a hair stylist - the suitcase she took had to weigh 20kg but when she got her flight ticket (it was with virgin) to join her cruise she found she could take two cases. She went out and bought another one as she had to take all her own equipment eg hairdryer rollers straightners scissors combs wahl etc. She also had to take all her equipments with her every day to the Academy. She seems to be having a really good time (working hard and playing hard !!) She loves it if her day off is when they are at one of the islands they can go onshore. Her base is New York so if she has a day off whilst there she can go round New York. Sometimes her day off is while they are at sea - they have a crew area for sunbathing, also she does her washing and so on when it is her day off. - Linda

Hey, I am going to my training on the 24th September, I have received my starter pack and everything but am unsure on a couple of things if anyone can answer them I would be really grateful :) Firstly, the Norwegian Medical how do you go about getting this? Do you need to apply for it before you go to training of do you get it at training, and when do you need to pay for it? Also on the date of my training does anyone know if there is a time I have to have arrived before? it doesn't say anything about times on my letter? Can you take your laptop on board with you?
If anyone knows any answers to these please let me know. Thankyou!! :)

Hi My daughter went for her Norwegian Medical on the first day starting at the Academy and paid cash for it then. The YMCA had details of when to be outside for the taxi etc. she then went on to the academy. She arrived at the YMCA around lunch time when she got to her room the 3 other girls were already there (so she got a top bunk !!) She took her i-pad and uses on the cruise. Linda

Hello everyone! i recently graduated from one of stieners massage schools im interested in working on a cruise ship but.. i dont want to work for stiener based off of what ive read and from research of my own they dont seem like the kind of company i would enjoy working for. is it possible to have an independent contract for a few months(i think the minimum is 8?) with a cruise line one i could work for and get dropped off at port? im a male therapist and i know most lines want female therapists, could having more skills such as bartending or astetics make my life any easier? I understand theirs pro's and cons to working on a cruise, is this something i should consider? Finaly if anyones able to answer this, what line would come most recomended to work on? Thanks in advance to anyone who answers!

Nath in Bedford, United Kingdom said: hiya kym! i added you on Facebook, more than happy to chat and stuff!

Hi Nathan, my daughter just started on P & O Adonia - through Steiner, her first contract.. she has range me crying her eyes out, disgusting smelly cabin, not cleaned, with stained bedding, the ship caters for 60+ passengers, all of them are so old and no one is booking any treatments, day 3 and NIL income.. she will be on 7.5% commission WHEN she gets a booking... I am going to contact Steiner and tell them unless they transfer her she's coming home as soon as she gets back to southampton.. she is absolutely devastated, we saved for nearly a year to get her over there (im a single parent) and now its all been for nothing.. I cant afford to send her money to support hersself and with NIL income so far... I'm so worried about her... interent is now out of range and I cant contact her either. My email is tpaton67@gmail.com... if anyone can give us advice it would be SO Appreciated.

Hi Cathy. My daughter just started her first contract with Steiner and rang me in tears...terribly unhappy .... Her cabin was not clean and smelled, blood stains on the linen, she has worked 12 hrs x 3 days with Nil Bookings..she's on the p and o Adonia and said its horrible, all passenges are over 60 yrs of age and completely not interested in any facials etc. there is already a nail tech and a massage therapist on board so she won't get any of those treatments, She is devastated and wants to come home..... So nil income at all.. I'm stressing out so bad from here... Can't contact her now shes gone out of range.... I'm so worried about her. Would you have any advice? How did your contract go ?

Cathy in Melbourne, Australia said: Why don't you check out www.steinerleisure.com ? They recruit for over 80% of the luxurious cruise liners. If you are happy working hard, there are many different opportunities with them. I am starting with them early next year as a massage therapist. I don't know which ship I will be posted to. I have heard all the good and the bad comments re Steiner. And have made up my mind, I will find out for myself. I have an 8 month contract .

Best Wishes,

Cathy

Your welcome - just one other thing you've maybe got all your paperwork together but my daughters crb check hadn't come back in time for when she went to the academy but she had a photocopy of it and proof of posting to show them. Also she didn't have a letter or anything from her doctor saying she had had mmr injections so rather than hold up a placement on a ship waiting for me to sort the letter and post it to her she paid for another one at the academy £50.
