What are the benefits of working in an upscale spa or resort vs. working for a franchise, day spa or chiropractor's office?
National upscale spas at hotels and resorts typically pay a decent salary and have benefit packages (reimbursement for continuing education, retirement benefits, 401K, health insurance, and sometimes even stays at huge discounts in their hotels or resorts) that a massage therapist will not find in most franchises, local day spas, or in a chiropractor's office, as a general rule. They also may have a cafeteria for employees, they may provide the uniforms, they offer a discount on products sold, and they may offer hands-on training on-site. Upscale spas and resorts typically do the laundry and the marketing and they schedule the appointments.
