What’s it like as an esthetician at Vanilla Sugar?
Before we give you the details of what it is like working at our spa, we wanted to introduce ourselves first. Vanilla Sugar Face & Body was founded by Navy Veteran Liz Steffen back in 2013. She has over 15 years of industry experience and she built this business in a way that sets us apart from other spa’s. Her main focus with building a team is to ensure the success of every team member with advanced education, coaching, encouragement and an amazingly fun environment. We laugh all the time at the spa because we WANT to have fun where we work. If this sounds like the kind of place you want to work then please keep on reading.
ABOUT THE JOB POSITION
If and when we are looking for a full time Esthetician, we consider full time anywhere between 32-40 hours a week. Yeah, full time can be less than 40 hours and we actually encourage that a little because we don’t want to burn you out. Our job can be very physical and we are around A LOT of people every day. When fully booked at our spa, you may see anywhere between 10-15+ clients a day. That’s a lot of hustling.
We have an incredible on-boarding process when you first start with us. We will NEVER throw you into the treatment room and say go. If you haven’t noticed we have a 5-star review over many different social media platforms and we’ve achieved that through our stellar on-boarding systems. We consider this period to be around 90 days long and it will include how we run everything from the back office to some of our most popular services we want you to perform when you first start taking on clients. Our clients expect the best from our Estheticians and we will train and continue to train you to be the best. Even after 15 years of experience, Liz still travels the world learning from the top educators. There is always more to learn. So, in your first 90 days you will most likely not see any clients. You will learn the services and practice, practice, practice! You will also be expected to learn & work our front desk reception position. This is essential to know on so many levels. You will also gain skills outside being an Esthetician because if you ever had an injury, we want to make sure that you can still stay employed with our company and have further career opportunities.
Okay, we know that was a lot of information. It’s not a normal career opportunity posting but we aren’t a normal spa company to work for either. Even though we are not currently hiring, we like to build a database of top candidates for future hiring opportunities.
If you are still interested in working at a friendly and crazy busy spa in Peoria, Illinois then please submit a resume and cover letter to Liz at email@example.com.
We will be in touch shortly after we receive your resume and cover letter. If you do not hear from us, please re-submit.
One more thing, Liz is particularly fussy about spelling, grammar and attention to detail.
