I just opened a tanning salon in southern california and I am curious to see what other salons pay their employees? Do you give comission? Do you give employees incentives besides the perks of tanning? Do you provide them lotion or give them a discount? Any advice would be great!

I start at minuim wage. First raise is being put on commission and then after a year i increase you hourly rate by .50. Only problem i have right now is that i have employees that have with me 3 years. They stay around because the commission in the spring is so good. We pay on products and services 5 to 8% depending on what it is.

Not enough I have an awesome employee who takes on so much responsibility. Right now she is making $7.00 per hour and gets 10% on products. We do not pay commission for tanning packages. She has been with us for a little over a year. She doesn't complain about pay, I just wish we were in a better position to pay her more. (she started at $5.50 so we have given her increases) She pays our cost for products.

Minumum wage to start, 5% commission on product, $5 bonus for EFT sales, and 30% discount on all product. Evaluations at 30,90, 180 and 1year. If they are doing great pay raises.

One is at $6.50, another at 7.50 and another at 9.00. their pay is different b/c of previous experiences and raises. commission is based on a sliding scale 5% if you sell to pay $499, 7% if you sell to 999, and over $1000 10%. They get free tanning and two packets of lotion per week free if they choose not to use the 32 oz sample bottle for staff. But, their tanning and lotion can be taken away if they do not complete their daily cleaning duties which we rotate amongst staff each week. So far this has worked well, a nice clean salon at all times of the day and no one has had their tanning taken away.

No employee to pay. Was curious to read these answers myself, for the near future.

Wow! Can I come work for you? LOL

I make a salary of 21000.00/year, plus bonuses and commission on tanning and product. The tanning commission is based on hours worked, and since I'm fulltime, I get the bulk of it. Sundry (product) commission is based on $$ per client for the month. Total net sales of product is divided by the number of clients I serve. Antything under $1.25/client is 3% commission. Over $1.25 is 10% commission. I usually sit about $4 - $5 per client. Today, however, I'm rockin'at $14.82!!(per client)

What employees? I don't even pay myself, just trying to pay my tanning beds off as fast as I can.
