Good luck! I’m happy for you!
@CoCo thank you.
Hope you enjoy your new job!
Thanks @Ducky. Things haven’t been finalized with the new job yet. I have not put in a notice at my current job.
Oh right, well im sure youll have it sorted out soon
People have been nicer to me today. I’m afraid of leaving my job and not liking the new job. What do you think?
I put together Reasons to take new job
I’m not going to make more money at [business name]
Our household bills have gone up with car insurance for teenagers
I’ve had a bad review,
I am probably going to get another bad review
The manager didn’t tell me when there was a problem with personal talk. She promised she would tell me when there was a problem.
There was no warning that I was going to get a bad review
The chiropractor said he would keep me busier. Massage therapist get paid on commission.
I make more money overall at the chiropractor
If you’ve gotten a bad review where you are, it’s probably best to move on and get a change of environment. Being around different people might really help
Yeah. I’ve never gotten a bad review at a massage place. The bad review was because I didn’t sell enough enhancements or memberships.
I did not know that was a requirement. No one ever told me. It was a surprise in the review. Also, I’ve never been held responsible for sales numbers for selling what they call enhancements or memberships.
I really was shocked.
Edit: I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad review, ever, now that I come to think of it.
They are going to review me at the new job after 90 days. I get a chance at a raise. That’s nice. Now, however, I’m afraid I’ll get another bad review. The lead massage therapist did not mention I would be responsible for sales when she told me what was going to be in the review.
Believe these actions. Don’t fall for their sudden backtracking now. If you stay, they will treat you badly again, and the bad reviews will make it more difficult to get other job offers. Jump ship while you can.
I agree. Leave asap
If they want someone to sell memberships, they can get a salesperson. You are a medical professional.
Bad reviews won’t help or determine me at other jobs. Massage jobs never called the previous employer.
The reason I’m going to get a bad review again is memberships are way down all over. Not everyone wants to buy enhancements either. I’m not good at sales as a massage therapist. I’ve excelled at sales in the past. However, I didn’t want to do sales again and didn’t think I had to being a massage therapist.
So why continue to have to sell if that’s not what you want to do?
Ok. Right. The chiropractor at the new place is going to call me and talk to me. I’m going to ask him if there’s sales involved and if that comes up in a review.
Good idea. I’m glad you’ll talk to the chiropractor about it
any time a massage therapist has pressured me to buy enhancements, I quickly left. I go for pain management, and my massage therapist needs to be a trusted part of my treatment team. I cannot trust someone’s suggestions if they promote a new thing every month.
My favorite massage therapist of all time ended up leaving the facility because his boss pushed him too much to work unreasonable hours, upsell products, and push for memberships. The place shut down a few months after he left. That kind of poor management bleeds into customer satisfaction, and ruins everything.
Most people decline, but they’re polite. However, I think half of the employees where I work who do well at it selling enhancements. Only half of the employees though. This is the only place that has held me responsible for selling enhancements and I’ve worked at about six or seven places.
The problem with being customer-facing in any business is that there will always be an expectation to upsell. I get asked weekly if I am making clients aware of our life insurance offerings.
I’ve never had to upsell working for a chiropractor before.
The chiropractor at the new place told me there’s incentives for employees to help the company. This is new and he will let everyone know about it. I asked him for clarification about what we were supposed to do and he said he would let everybody know. He did not answer the question. This was via text because this is how he was communicating.
I have the chance to talk to him on the phone today, though, so gooey I’ll get a better answer.
Edit: I’ve never gotten reviewed based on upselling in a massage job though. I’ve worked at six or seven places.
