In answer to "yellowrage17", they ask you to arrive in smart clothing e.g. suit.

I have just returned from seeing my daughter who started on a ship in mid June as a hairdresser with Steiner. It is an old ship, with a back-street type salon (i.e. old and basic) doing 4 and 5 day cruises from southern USA. Don't worry about getting that one as it is doing its last trip soon! She isn't earning much money as it is down market clientele, but she is thoroughly enjoying herself! So don't go expecting to earn loads of money, although you may be lucky and get a good ship. She is living off tips, and saving about 400 dollars per month. If you have a decent job it may be worth staying where you are, or join without high expectations but prepared to work hard. My daughter is unlucky that they are all first timers in her spa, with a new manageress who has come from an up-market ship and so does not have the right sort of experience. Sincere best wishes to all of you about to start.

Hi Cburke, i have an interview/hands-on coming up in Vegas for the Hawaiian Cruise Line. is Steiner still very strict with the no male policy? i'm a male therapist, do you think i should even bother going to the interview cause i'm in OC. i don't want to drive all the way to Vegas for nothing.

cburke7772yahoo.com in Los Angeles, California said: you will be as busy as you want to be. How you promote yourself on embarkation day, and the amount of effort you put in, will be exactly what you get out of it. The only reason you are not making money, is because of your lack of passion and energy with the people, in getting the people to book with you. You need to have a sense of urgency, and let them know that you only have two spaces left for the day. There is plenty of money to make with Steiner, you just have to work hard.

sure if your on an american ship maybe, but unfortunatly you dont get to pick.....

Hi Patty! I've been to an interview in Spain with Steiner as a Receptionist too. Congrats on getting the job!
In it they mentioned that I wouldn't have a wage, commision only, and that I only got commission for selling the water treatments which seemed a bit weird as I have to sell all the other services too.

Any ideas on how much you can make as a Receptionist?

Thanks for your help xxx

I'm in the process of getting my passport but I'm not sure I will have it by the time of the interview. The Steiner website says that you only need to have your passport before you travel, not necessarily for the interview. Anyone know the specifics?!

I recently attended an interview for the role of Receptionist and was was offered the job, but am not sure whether to continue on with the recruitment process. My main concern is how much money I can realistically make as a Receptionist. This role isn't talked about as much as the therapist roles. Can anyone shed some light?
What is the average earnings per month for a Receptionist? I know it will vary, but I would like to get a rough idea! Also, are tips collected for the whole team and then shared at the end of the cruise, or do you make your own tips?
Lastly, do we get any decent amount of time off to enjoy the ships facilities/ports, or is it all work?
I'd be grateful for any feedback!
Thanks!

Hi! At my interview they said that each person gets to keep their own tips, they're not shared. Also, that we got 1 and a half days off, the day off being rotational and always in a different location.

I'm also worried about the pay, I was told you have to manage everyone's agenda and sell all the spa services but you will only get paid for the water treatments, ie-hamman, jacuzzi..... Seems a bit silly to sell everyone elses stuff and do all that work for free but oh well. Specially if you are put on a small ship that had very few facilities.

Anyone else know how much receptionists can expect to earn??

Thanks everyone xx

I understand receptionists earn 200 dollars a week, and are the only staff to earn a salary while everyone else has to earn 245 dollars a week in work done before being due to commission on the amount above this. They get all their own tips. All staff are expected to sell products to up their income. Bear in mind you don't have any expense in board and lodgings, or transport to work, and drinks on board are cheap. Work is at least 10 hours per day from what my daughter says, but you do get your time off. I'd say look at the worst case scenario and see if you could accept that, then hope you get assigned to a super ship and make loads of money!

Hello! Thanks for your helpful input and your kind wishes. I have just been offered the receptionist job!!! Yeah!!!! Unfortunately for me though there is no basic. I am European so I don't think it's got anything to do with my nationality. Weird how some people get a basic. I was just offered commision on some treatments and products.

All the best guys!!!

Are you sure you don't get a basic? They must have changed the terms then as when my daughter started in May receptionists were the only ones to get a salary. Steiner also reduced the commission on sales as well between her first enquiring and actually joining, and they used to pay for lunch and transport in Watford but no longer do, so I don't doubt you are right if you say you have checked. They don't have a receptionist on my daughter's ship so I can't get any more info for you. Sorry. I think you'll have to work very hard selling, unless they have offered you a commission on every person who walks through the door to book a treatment. Good luck anyway, and enjoy it. As my daughter said when she was allocated a Carnival ship "I won't make much money, but I'll have fun" - and she is enjoying every minute!

Sharon in Vancouver, Washington said: DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT work for a cruise ship. Ever. I made this mistake and was so relieved when I got salmonella and got to leave!

It's slave labor. You work 16 hour days with no breaks, for very little money. Base pay is around $350/month, plus product sales commission & tips. Clients are very stingy tippers because they already paid between $90 and $150 for the massage the in the first place!

YOUR REAL JOB IS TO SELL PRODUCTS. Clients complain because we were trained to constantly talk during the massage to push products.

You are absolutly right with that statement. I did the same thing for a month and they work your but off for 7percent of everything you make thats all you get. You get one day off a week and then you have to get up early and do boat drill for that. You don't get very good tips and on top of pushing all their products you get taxed on your 7% by the U.S. government if you are from the U.S..

Im meant to start with Steiner as a Receptionist in january, im really having second thoughts as there are so many bad reviews about this company. If anyone that has worked for them could give me some advice that would be great.

Thanks!

i am currently on a ship now working for steiner as a beauty therapist. do not believe anything on here.. i mean some things are real but then again alot of it doesnt apply to every single ship. there are bad things and good things with any job whether it b on land or at sea. to b honest i hated life on the ship for my first 2 weeks. ive been on here for 6 weeks now and absolutly love it! yes i hav to go out and promote try to get my own clients in but it has been so good for my confidence. i was so scared when i first started to go up to someone and ask them if they would like a treatment, now i find it so easy to do. plus! it is the best experience u can get! i mean ur travelling the world whilst getting paid. ur friends are ur work mates, ur roommates and ur family. u become so close. if u like to party u will love ships too. crew partys happen every week or twice a week. have been saving heaps of money too! the first few months are stressful i believe.. but u get used to it and it becomes ur life.

I say do it and see how it is for u. so many people are different so it doesnt mean ur experience is going to be the same as theirs.

I am working on the Sapphire Princess as a massage therapist, and as a receptionist, you will be earning next to nothing. However, people do this role, to see the world, not for the money. It is obviously not for you by the sound of it.

Hi,

An advantage of working on a cruise ship is that you are paid in cash and depending on what you are doing on the ship as part of your job you can return home at the end of a contract with quite a fair bit of money in your pocket.

The advantages of being part of the crew is for the most part, you get free travel and get to go to some of the most exotic locations in the world and get paid for it.

There's lots of info and possible vacancies, if you're still interested, on the Seabourn site over at www.seabourncareers.com

For a good insight into what it's like to work on a cruise ship, you should check out the blog www.tealfrost.com/. It's about the experiences of a woman who has really enjoyed herself working on a cruise ship.

Usually, the perks are that you visit all the places the ship docks to abroad and you have so many months working and then so many months off on holiday, making it a lot more desirable for people not so fond of the 9-5.

At the moment I am looking for a company that can give me a contract to prolong my stay here in Australia to practice my degree. If any one can help me before my visa expires that would be a great opportunity. I really love doing massage to people and working with different races.

Thank you very much

rubmstr in Columbus, Ohio said: Thanks for the great info Evan. I thought I had read that there were places that did the hiring for cruise ships.I didn't see a listing for jobs on cruise ships specifically on the website you listed. You didn't work when they were in port did you? I also didn't understand what you meant by "you can save twelve grants"Do you get many breaks?

Most cruise ship spa jobs are only available thru a company called
Steiner. They are contracted through the cruise companys to run the Spas & gyms on almost all ships. They are based out of the UK and actually have opened or taken over some MT schools. I worked with someone who did a contract with them (8 months) and hated it.
She said that she did about 10 massages a day and had a very rigirous sales quota to fill. As most massage therapist are not
sales people, she did not like it. She told me that she had to
travel to the UK to train in their methods of massage, selling and
other body treatments for about 2 weeks.

Dear Yellow-
Remember that regardless of what others are doing, you are
selling yourself. There is an extensive test on basic things, ie
if a client has a siezure, as well as ? regarding how you would
handle certain situations regarding running a business. They want
to see if you can sell and if you are motivated to promote yourself. You will have to do a practical and may need a table if your interview is not at a school. They will want to see your techniques, especially if you can use other parts other than hands.This is to see how long you can last or how many treatments you can actually do in a day!!

Carly in Crofton, Maryland said: To Christine
You must be attending the Baltimore School of Massage. I am about to graduate from there, and let me tell you the admissions officers have lied to you. Steiner Group owns 90% of the spa industry on cruiselines. They have a monopoly and they push their students into working on the ships right out of school because they don't know any better. It's slave labor. Once you're on that ship they own you. You are cut off from family and friends and they make you work 12-14 hour days. A normal day for a massage therapist is 4-5 sessions. You would be doing 10-12. You'd do much better to find a day spa in Baltimore, Annapolis, or DC and maintain your freedom. I realize that you're just starting school and that you're still idealistic and excited for the future, but please research all that is out there! You are about to be exposed to so much, please don't let Steiner blind you from other opportunities.

It's not slave labor...as you are free to leave anytime(yes you would have to pay for your ticket back- but no one is there threatening to kill you if you leave). The hours are long, and work is hard...but theses are choices that we all have the freedom to make for ourselves. Please don't compare this to slave labor- because in all honesty it pales in comparison!

gooffy in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania said: I AM THE HARDEST WORKER AROUND> it had nothing to do with the experience. If you are younger like to drink don't mind people having sex in the bed next to you then you'll do fine. All the selling and hard work was a big part of the job but not the problem for me. It was the ship life itself. So no worries about your choice just be prepared for the unexpected.
Yes, I am sure the ship matters a great deal. Keep thinking about the great money you WILL make. GOODLUCK!

What ship did you work for? All you seem to talk about of ship life is drunk people and people having sex. Somehow it is hard to believe that all there is to ship life is what you have described! I know it is an element...but I know there are other elements as well. Maybe you can broaden your perspective and offer a little more info. Just a thought!

Steiner Leisure does not own any ships, they are contracted with the cruise lines to run & staff the spas on board the ships. Go to their website to see which lines they work with. www.steinerleisure.com. Just as a FYI here is a post from someone a few months back.... I worked as a beauty therapist for stiener. at first i was very excited to go to my training in london, england. when you get there, they put you up in the ymca, which houses not only steiners, but drug addicts, youth offenders, etc. it was a bit of a shock for me when i got to the academy. most, but no all of the trainers are full of themselves becasue they are so proud to have gotten to their cheesy position. their are very straight, and by that i mean if that don't like your hair or make up they'll tell you to your face and infront of everyone. they were actually pretty rude, and unprofessional. if you had asked them a question or challeged them their response would be, "why aren't you wearing enough make up?"
from the beginning they teach you how to sell, HARDCORE SELLING. you have to memorize a huge list of products. if i had known earlier that it was all about selling, then i probably wouldn't have joined. myself and others were stuck in a position. we had paid all that money to join steiner and it would be too late to go back now! i especially felt sorry for the people that came all the way from places like south africa and australia...when they realize whats really going on, they up and leave!
when you get on your ship, depending on your ship and your manager, it could be a good or a HORRIBLE experience. managers are absolutly crazy! they yell at you, make you feel horrible, embarress you in front of your team, make you read out your

commission on a massage is 7.25 % + tips on all services and you have to pay $35 before you can start earning commission (~$130) ..... you will work min 12 hours with hour break for lunch and 15min between services.. the max hours of work is 14 hours a day.. you have 3 half days off a week.... you do have ship privilege so you have some time to drink and relax i guess...Remember to sell yourself and make steiner loads of money

You don't actually "pay" this amount, this is the sum you have to earn before you get commission - so you lose your 7.5% on this 35 dollars. In fact, it is 245 per week, as you have to earn the money for your days off!

As far as money in London is concerned, you'll need money to get to the YMCA, then the academy daily, and lunches.When you have finished the course, you pay your transport to the airport (there is a good bus service) and one night in a hotel at the port city.If you haven't paid for it before, you'll need to pay the fee to Steiner and the medical. You will be told about this at the interview. For my daughter, they said she should take about 1,000 sterling to cover all this, but she managed to spend quite a bit more!

If you enjoy a social life and eating out, then you will need a lot more. I would suggest having a VISA card rather than take cash.

Remember that Steiner recruits worlwide, so its not just the
people standing in the room with you, you are compeating against.
The interviews are screaning processes, and the interviewer's
perception is imprtant, but they are not the decision makers.
All your documents,test,resume,picture, etc is sent to the main office in the UK and they decide. Try your best to have eerything they ask for,as it will be difficult to get anything else to catch up with your original docs! Best of luck to you!
