Hey geeks. well, I graduated from a diploma program in Nail technology in april, and started working right away at a VERY upscale spa. I was only 1 of 2 techs, and felt I was definitely in over my head...but how could I turn it down!?! Well, after 6 months i decided to quit. I was in a place where there was absolutely no support, no learning environment, not even a Nail Tech Dept head or Manager, just me and the other girl who worked opposite shifts as me(we only had one desk). I feel pretty discouraged, a big part of me quitting was that I was getting complaints.:cry: This spa is state of the art, they charge top top dollar, and clients expect perfection...definitely not the best job for a brand new tech. I knew I wasn't at the caliber they expeced! So, back to square one for me! I am wondering how others have fared after leaving school, what kinds of experiences you had and what you think the best environment for a newbie would be. I really want a place where I can learn, and this definitely was not the place. Just feel kind of sad though, but I did give it a good shot!
