1.    Good work-life balance

Nail tech employees working within a team report a higher level of happiness and lower levels of stress.  Day Spas have a quiet, serene spa environment available to see guests 7 days per week.  There are no noisy blow dryers or children arriving home from school, the day spa is calming 24/7. 


2.    Steady Supply of New Guests

Let the spa handle marketing and advertising while you focus on the needs of your guests.   Guests often receive multiple services during a spa day, and enjoy bringing a friend or sister to share the experience.  There are also frequent last minute bookings to fill in the schedule.


3.    Medical, Dental, Disability Benefits

The employee benefits vary based on location and full time or part time work, but working at a day spa can offer important benefits including medical insurance, dental insurance, and disability insurance.  


4.    401K Retirement Plan

Being an employee of a day spa can offer the option of retirement savings in a 401K account.  Relax the Spa in Rochester offers a 50% employee match.  Starting a retirement account in your 20’s and 30’s offers the compounding effect of accrued interest, so start right away to ensure a comfortable retirement.


5.    Gel Polish in a Luxury Day Spa

The luxury day spa facility offers gel polish but not acrylics, so there is no scary chemical smell.  As clients typically pay more for services at a day spa, they expect a more robust and glamorous spa experience.   Nail technicians remove old nail polish, cut and shape the nails, soften the skin around the area, and prepare the nails for polish before polishing them. They engage in conversation with their clients and often develop relationships with them, which usually results in repeat business.


6.    Flexibility

The flexibility of working in a day spa can be a huge benefit to employees. Some share childcare responsibilities with a spouse by working just evenings and weekends.  Having a set schedule offers better work – life balance and opportunities for personal and professional growth.  There is also great flexibility in the variety of manicures and pedicures offered to meet the guest unique needs.


7.    Customer Service Focus

Guests are looking for an escape from the stress of daily life, and nail technicians in a day spa can provide a full spa day experience.  This includes a team of other therapists to complement the guest’s needs for facial and massage, as well as a hospitality team to make tea and handle the checkout process.
