Sales Associate (Former Employee) – North Vancouver, BC – 16 August 2018
absolutely terrible company to work for, owners are so money hungry, the girls are so dramatic (tried to use the b word and it wouldnt let me) and up tight. honestly awful company all around. hours are bad. management never helps out during customer conflict, everybody has to email... their commission is a scam and you always end up making way less then what they tell you.. everybody who works here is unhappy. you can work so hard and never get recognition but one itty bitty mistake and you have them breathing down your back... tan anywhere else... work anywhere else. this company is awful, I regret applying

Sunscape was a great place to work while going to school. This is a very professional run company with lots of opportunities for those who pay attention in training. I made a lot of commission (sometimes more than my wage) and would have been happy to keep the job had I not gone to university for a specialized career.
Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) – Newcastle, ON – 19 May 2017
This was the worst job that I have ever had. The owners are nasty people who don't value their employees whatsoever. Nothing you do is ever good enough for them, and you are constantly being watched and analysed. After I find out the geezers in shipping; who have never accomplished ANYTHING in there lives like to talk about me in a very negative way. :) Enjoy the rest of your miserable lives working at Sunspace!

This was the worst job that I have ever had. The owners are nasty people who dont value their employees whatsoever. Nothing you do is ever good enough for them, and you are constantly being watched and analyzed. There is also little to no opportunity for job advancement and if you do have the opportunity to enter into management you barely get compensated for your time.

I was very sad when I moved and had to resign at this wonderful company. They've been in business for over 15 years I think, and I was proud to work here. The girls I worked with are great, they have all sorts of commission and bonus opportunities that get paid every month, the clients were amazing (well most of them) and I made a lot of really great friends via this job. Although I wasn't able to commit full time, if I had there were a lot of possibilities for advancement and to receive training from their many higher level managers. I actually used a lot of the things I learned here at my other job and in school.
I may even go back and work here one day should circumstances allow.
great co-workers, awesome commissions, fun atmosphere

When you first start you have to pay 60$ for training with the beds.. But getting this training could take months.. Or never at all. And then when you move on And still haven't gotten the training you don't get that money back. New owners are all about themselves. You will hear about every single thing you do "wrong" but will not hear praise for what you do well with like an amazing sale or taking leadership for your store. Trying to take time off because your sick? Well it's your problem apparently not the manager they will tell you to figure it out for yourself- regardless of how sick you are. Super easy work but boring boring boring working atmosphere the one good thing is you can call girls at other salons to talk. Other than that your alone your entire shift.
And commissions? You need to complete a sales form (ie sell X amount of packages and lotions etc THEN you will recieve commisions after that had been approved) which is sort of silly and hey if you go for it just make sure you ask about this form because they may choose to not tell you about it so you can't keep track of what your selling..making it extra hard to even get that commission.
