Paid-Time Off (Sales Associates)

Full-Time Sales Associates will enjoy 4 paid personal days per year, after they have worked 12 continuous months with Massage Envy. You will accrue one (1) paid personal day on the first day of each quarter. Paid personal days do not roll over and must be redeemed in the quarter they were accrued. Paid or unpaid time off must be requested a minimum of 2 weeks before the requested date, to the location manager. All time off is granted at the location managers discretion.

Paid-Time Off (Service Providers)

Each of our licensed service providers have different time off needs so we decided to create a benefit plan that can give you the flexibility to fit your needs. The plan is designed to accommodate both full-time and part-time employees.

Benefits Accumulation Schedule:

One dollar for each hour of massage or facial you perform will be added to your PTO account. The program will run on an annual basis from July 1st to June 30th each year. You will maintain your accumulated credits as long as you continue your active employment with Massage Envy Sarasota.

Note: Our full time employees typically perform about 100 hours of massage/facial per month, so this annual benefit can be approximately $1200 per year in added benefits for full time employees.

All licensed Massage Therapists and licensed Estheticians of Massage Envy of Sarasota Florida, are eligible for this PTO program and benefits start accumulating after a period of 60 days of uninterrupted employment.

The Benefit Options:

Paid Vacation

This benefit can be utilized for any approved Vacation Time. Your location Manager has sole discretion in determining whether vacation time is approved.

Vacation days are to be redeemed at $125, and can be redeemed a minimum of 3 days at a time.

Here are a few helpful points to getting vacation time approved:

  • Try to plan time off in the off season.

  • Give plenty of notice.

  • Avoid busy holidays.

Paid Sick Time

You may use your accrued PTO as a paid sick day up to 4 times per year. These days are for the unexpected life events like doctors’ visits, sick child, and unexpected emergencies, also redeemed at $125 per day.

Cash Out

If you don’t use any PTO before June 30th, up to 5 days will roll over to the next year, and we will cash out anything above 5 days that you have accrued. You will receive this cash bonus in the second pay period in July.
