do not work here

I have never been to an interview where I had to tell the hiring person about the job. They asked me, “Do you even know what this job requires?” They talked to me like I was stupid, and very disrespectful. Then they bashed Woodhouse which was so rude and inappropriate. I told them my mother was a massage therapist there and they still proceeded to bash it. I was very shocked at how unprofessional everyone looked and dressed, their style was horrible, and it was literally one of the worst interviews I have ever had. The hiring assistant should be fired because she made me very uncomfortable, and I do not reccommend anyone go to massage envy!

Never work here

Ok so I was a member at Massage Envy and one day decided to apply for a job. I was called the next day to take an assessment and then after the assessment apparently indicated that I would have good “sales” skills, the manager called me, didn’t even interview me but told me I had gotten the job because of this damn survey that literally took about 1 minute. Then I was handed a page long script and told that I had 48 hours to memorize it WORD FOR WORD, which I did, even though it sounded fake as hell. I started training and I was made to pretend with the other trainees that we were greeting customers, talking on … Read More

Do Not Associate!

An employee was fired in my location (Massage Envy central new jersey).
A text went out to employees that they were not to associate with or speak to this person. If you do, you will be “Terminated.”
So now they get to dictate who you see or speak with outside of work.
Is this even legal? (By the way, the person was fired for not doing a good job – not stealing or anything like that.)

Managment and owners BlOW at Redwood City. I was a therapist for a goof amount of years. I was let go because of my bad attitude. I have been written up numerous times and told Id be fired, LOL but after many years, I finally got fired and it was a blessing. My “bad attitude” was asking for things that my team deserved, PTO, sick days, better insurance, free massages, we were worked literally like dogs. We were slammed every day, and management would over book us and not even care and their excuse was oh you can do one more right, no bitch do my job! I am happy ands glad I am out of there, and from what … Read More

I have 5 dogs, and when we had a few inconsistent days through the winter I was bit by a flea. The front desk manager said they were bed bugs. I am positive they were flea bites, I have had them before. Even the ER doc said bedbugs but wasn’t 100% sure said possibly flea bites too. But released me with the diagnosis as bedbugs. I showed this to them, and after two days they fired me before I could get pest control out here to check, which they cleared me of being free of bed bugs. Massage Envy said I was a liability, which if anyone knew anything about bedbugs they don’t travel skin to skin. And they kid … Read More

illness w therapist

I had been employed by massage envy for 4 years in different locations, but all of them are the same as far as management and ownership. By this I mean that when a therapist is ill, they expect the therapist to still come in and if they don’t, they are reprimanded for it. I was told yesterday that I needed to work even though my nose was running so much I had a wet shirt from wiping it and could have very well dripped snot on my clients. I still went home though because clients pay enough money for the massage, they are not expecting to get sick from the therapist too!! Also, I am a single mother of one … Read More

Cover Your A**

Literally, keep your ass covered, and other parts you don’t want showing up on someones Facebook page or anywhere else on the internet. A LMT who was working at a Sacramento Massage Envy was fired for posting a nude picture she had taken of a client laying on a massage table. The client was unaware the picture was taken. The therapists manager seen the post on the therapists Facebook page and was fired for it. If you think therapists aren’t taking their cell phones into massage sessions, you would be mistaken. I”m sure most massage therapists are ethical, just keep an eye out for the one’s who are not.

Fired For Nothing

Well I never thought I’d be posting on here but alas, here I am. Please be aware that these comments aren’t directed towards ME as a whole, just the one I worked at.

I worked at the Massage Envy Tinley Park location for 7 months. I was a front desk girl & I liked my job. I read like all the posts here & honestly, my ME never treated clients like that. I was actually proud of that lol. The only time people complained was when they wanted to do something against the contract (we literally read the contract out loud to each member when they sign up) because they want something for free. Sometimes people complained over ridiculous things … Read More
