A spa provides a relaxing service for patrons, and the attendant plays a primary role in delivering a quality experience. Spa attendants clean all rooms and equipment with solutions, keep all products in stock, and place linens and supplies in each room after guests leave. Attendants maintain equipment and let managers know when something needs to be repaired. Additional duties include greeting guests and communicating with them about any problems.

Becoming a Spa Attendant

Spa operators have more concern for your personal qualities than educational experience. However, a certificate or degree in cosmetology or massage therapy is a huge advantage in your job search. Qualities desired include excellent communication and interpersonal skills to maintain guest relationships. You need multitasking skills to coordinate check-ins, receive phone calls and clean as needed. Detail-orientation is also important so that you keep accurate appointment records and effectively sanitize rooms. Much of your typical day is spent cleaning rooms, so familiarity with basic maintenance and sanitation of equipment, massage tables and locker rooms is required as well.
