Employer Spotlight: Massage Envy®
Steve Pearce owns five Massage Envy® locations in the greater Sacramento area, and says Carrington College Massage Therapy graduates play an integral part in his business on a day-to-day basis.
“There’s never a culture shock when a student from Carrington comes into a Massage Envy® working environment. They’re very familiar with all the processes, and that’s been part of our relationship too over the years. Working here as a massage therapist and helping others is extremely rewarding,” Pearce said.
“We’ve all, I think, had those jobs where we come home at night and wondered, ‘How did I better the world today by selling this product or pitching this item?’, but here we’ve got a customer who, we know when they leave our care, they’re in a better position than they were when they walked in the door,” Pearce said.
Pearce added that people want to feel connected to others and have a deep down desire to feel well.
“Part of that is that connect, that human contact,” he said.
Pearce spelled out what he looks for in an employee at Massage Envy®:
- Someone who is professional
- Someone who cares about others more than themselves
- Someone with a desire to make this world a little bit of a better place
“Carrington College graduates bring a sense of care and concern for our guests and their well-being. They demonstrate a sense of professionalism that I really appreciate,” Pearce said.
