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.

Yes i agree, i do a little reading when i can and your right some info sticks and some don't... i think as long as we have a little knowledge about Elemis that will be fine! its impossible to learn everthing, i'm trying not to stress about it to be honest!

Ahh I see I got my visa through last week :) It's a long wait when you go up to london by the way, you will be in there for at least 3 hours! And noone is allowed to go in with you, and you can't take your phone or anything else in with you. No I don't know anyone else who is going :-/ scary! Do you? I don't have a clue what sort of dress they are on about :-/ I havn't really thought about it really, I suppose I should really! Have you been in the industry long? How old are you? (If you don't mind me asking haha)

Ahh that's the same as me, I finish college this week! I'm 20. It's so scary though! Also we have to get a smear test for the medical, I have spoken to my Dr and she won't to it because I am under 25 :/ so I don't really know what to do about that. I'm so nervous about starting, I've heard so much about Steiner, some good and some bad! I don't really know what to think! haha.

Ya i saw that about the smear test, maybe if i bring the starter pack n show them that i need it they might do it then.. Im nervous too but i think it is whatever u make ov it.. Im trying not to read too much into the bad comments coz u cant please everyone anyway so some people will always have negative experiences.. Its about working hard and partying hard and i plan on doing both :)

Hi my daughter didnt have the smear test as her doctor said she didnt need one - she told this the nurse at the academy and it was ok - in my earlier post/s if you can get a letter from your doctor saying you have had all your immunisations - mmr etc take that with you. Evening dress is smart and dressy have a look on the steiner website they have some staff stood on stairs in appropriate dresses. She studied the elemis products before she went and every night at the YMCA they do test you on what they are and what they are used for. Sorry if you may think I am going on a bit but my daughter read a lot of comments etc on this website and it really helped her.

Hi guys, (sorry beth havent got back to you been sooo busy!) i went to the academy in june. I Went for a week, and went home on the friday as i needed to have more confidence in treatments. the trainer was lovely and she told me i had the right potential etc but need to get some experience, she sent a lot of girls home, turned round to them and said your crap go home kinda thing, but obviously i went on my own accord, and im going back in the new year, as i was told that if i go back within the 6 months my medical will still be valid, my visa obviously will be 10 years, and i had my refund from my maritime fee ready for the next time. The trainers are bloody strict, they watch you like a hawk and will type things down on the computer about you, the way you talk, communicate, appearance etc. Obviously because i have already experienced the training and ymca, i am so much more prepared for the next time. I know it was only a week i went for,but i did learn a lot, almost like a months worth of work !! The best advice i can give you is learn ALL the elemis products, and i mean everything. Its different for hairdressers, as they only know the facial products and mens skin care. I had my entrance test on the wednesday about all the elemis products included in the dvd, and if you dont pass, you will be sent home, you only get two chances to pass. Later on in the week, you will have another elemis test, it was on the saturday (i went home on the friday so i didnt do it) but basically its a 30 odd quiz and you had to learn the top 10 elemis products, in order, 3 key benefits, and 3 key ingredients so its pretty tough. I cannot stress how important it is to learn elemis, i have a huge book with every single product, which i have read over and over since i have been home. So many places sell elemis (john lewis, qvc, website, etc)

If you do beauty, be expected to be there a while i would say average is about 4-8 weeks, you have sooo much to learn. Hairdressers is different, only about a week!! I would say Massage therapists a little less as they have not so much to learn, but this is not always the case!! The classes are long, around 8 in the morning to 5 with a hour break, i didnt moan or anything,but it does get tiring and stressful, and because you have to study late at night, till about 1 in the morning, it does get tedious. If you dont study, you dont pass training. The training has got to be the most intense thing i have ever been through in my life, and im not overexaggerating, there was many tears and people leaving, but it is a experience. They say the cruise ships is so much more easier, and how i always think of it is its a few months out of your life, its nothing really!! the trainers are nasty, i had a nice one on my first week so wasnt too bad!! they will try to humiliate you,appearance is soo important, i wear a lot of makeup anyway so didnt find it a problem, but they will expect you everyday to wear a thick heavy face of makeup, bright eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, blusher, bronzer, and a very bright lipstick, if they turn round to you and say go and get a lipstick and you dont get one, they will flip out. hair has to be immaculate, donuts are the best things that will make you hair stay in place, i have really curly hair and it really helped. theres so much to speak about, if you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask me. hope this has helped some of you!!! x
