when looking for a massage job- definately think it through good and hard when you get an offer. ive been at this place for 5 months and its a sham. i buy my own lotion and accessories including candles, also buy my own table sanitizer, and get paid 55% commission. i ONLY get comission so even if i dont have any clients for 8 hours, boss still wants me to clean, fold, do reception, etc, for no pay. the worst part is that while making the 55% commission, the boss always lowers the prices to whatever he wants and does not consult with us LMTs first. i mean he is constantly putting the massages from $55 to $39. and he will book 3 appts at the same time even though there is only 1 therapist on duty. seriously- i do not know how ive been at the place so long- thank jesus im leaving!

So what type of place are you going to work now?

Sadly this can be common, especially those that don't have a contract prepared for the position.  Even then people can go back on their word.

If you feel some of their deeds crossed a line or are illegal in  your state, report them to the Department of Labor and Industries. 

Good luck on your future endeavors.
