Sun Tan City

Assistant salon director

June 2018 • Scarborough, ME

What I liked

Working as an Assistant Salon director at Sun Tan City helped me immensely! It helped me to build structure for time management, it taught me how to be in charge and enforce rules even to employees who were older than me, to employees who were my friend, etc. Sun Tan City helped me to grow and better my work ethic as I am preparing to leave the college life and enter into the everyday lifestyle as a working woman. Sun tan city itself is a great job for a young adult who likes to tan, likes to sell, and likes more of a laid back job. It has great hours great opportunity, and it’s great for a college student especially if their hometown is close to another suntan city as transfers over breaks and throughout the school year are optional.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have not over worked myself. Something I wish I took into consideration was how much of a toll this job was taking on me once I extended it past my summer and into my school week. Being a full time student, a full time Resident advisor, and a full time manager at my place of work exhausted me and made it so I didn’t focus my energy evenly and in all the right places. While this is something I wish would have been different, it taught me a lot about myself and how far I can push myself before I become overwhelmed. It taught me that it’s okay to step back when things get difficult, and most importantly, it taught me how to ask for help.

Advice

One piece of advice I have is to always listen to yourself and your body. Having a job on top of normal day to day tasks and then added those tasks to being a student is difficult. If you find yourself becoming overwhelmed, listen to your body, if you feel stressed and anxious, or just feel like you are not fitting in with your new position, talk to someone whether it be a teacher, a friend, a boss, or even a parent. Get those feelings off your chest because more times than not, your peers and employers want to be there to help you and ensure your comfort in your place of work. Don’t be afraid to voice your feelings because most times, people don’t know what you are actually feeling and wish they could have helped sooner.
