Help Please! Re: "Palm Beach Tan" Salaries

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Please help!


Martin has already applied for several jobs in his field (Construction Management) but most say they're either not hiring, or one has said they will be hiring in June which works out great for us (just after our HM), however I know we can't count on that!! So, I saw that Palm Beach Tan is hiring in our DFW area for Managers in Training/Asst. Managers. (He was unfortunately laid off NYE Day from his previous job as an Assistant Project Manager, so a management position would be great for his resume!)


Martin went to go fill out the form today and it asks what is your EXPECTED salary/wage? It gives options for hourly, bi-monthly, monthly or annually.


Do you or anyone you know work for this company? Any idea what he should try and ask for, salary wise? I don't want him to low-ball himself, but also don't want him to ask for too much and not get the job, KWIM?


He tried Googling this, but couldn't find anything so I said I'd call in the BDW Ladies!! muscle.gif


Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!!!


He is still in school (for Construction Management) so does not want this as a permanent job, however with us getting married and all of our financial responsibilities he has to get some sort of job soon. They offer what looks like good insurance plans plus Dental and 401k, etc. Insurance is a MUST for us with my Lyme disease as such a liability, and I probably will not be able to hold down a full-time job for about a year (have to go through treatment for that long).


Again, I REALLY appreciate any input you might have!!

We are not exactly sure but one of friends is a manager for Palm beach out in DC. We are purely guessing that an assistant manager is about at 35,000 annually. Just a guess though.


When I interview I always just say negotiable so the employer has to throw out a number first. HTH.

Hi JamieLynn,


I worked at PBT about 2 years ago in college in NC. They pay isn't bad. I was a shift leader and made $10.50/hr plus commission. I think our assistant manager made about $18/hr plus commission and benefits. They do have a good insurance/dental program but it's expensive!! They take it out of your paycheck and it's about $400 a month if I remember correctly. Commission can be amazing there...upwards of $1000 a month if you're a good sales person. I'll try to get in touch with my old manager and get you more details. Hope this helps though!

Thanks NaM! That would be great!!!


That sucks about them taking it out of your paycheck though! Darn sad.gif Better than paying out of pocket though!!


This sounds like a great job for me because I am a sales person! haha, but I work in the art business and should probably stay and keep my job there cheesy.gif


Do you know if they get to extend any sort of benefits (like free tanning) to their spouses? Just curious! :)

My manager hasn't gotten back to me but I'll forward you the info when I get it.

Haha no free tanning....that they know of. It's easy to do though, my friends would come in all the time and you can just tan under his name.

Threre are different insurance options you can get to make it cheaper, but they are all taken out of the pay check.

I wish I could be of assistance, but I was going to mention the "Negotiable" as well. So mainly just offering my support in hopes that Martin gets a job!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
