VIEW JOBS 4/1/2020 12:00:00 AM 2020-06-30T00:00 Overview You found your passion, you shouldn't have to find your clients too. Hello, my name is Laszlo and after 15 years on the road in the tech industry, I woke up one morning and wanted something different. I wanted to own an Oregon-based business that I had an emotional connection to. I used massage successfully as a healing tool for a torn disc and so in 2017 when six franchised locations became available to purchase in the Portland market, I took the plunge. Together with my team we now operate locations in these markets: Cedar Hills, Clackamas, Keizer Station, Lloyd Center, Mall 205 and Sherwood. We employ 165+ hardworking Oregonians. Covid-19 Due to COVID-19 and the resulting Gov. Kate Brown Executive Order OR 20-12 we cannot do massage or aesthetics services at this time in Oregon. That being said, we are optimistic about the future and look forward to playing our role in healing our communities when OR 20-12 is lifted. We are actively recruiting for all roles for all locations and encourage you to start a conversation with us today. Benefits * Flexible schedules, part time and full time available. * Steady client business. * Paid Continuing Ed classes. * Financially rewarding with clearly defined advancement goals. We pay on W2 so you won't have to worry about year-end 1099 tax surprises. Awesome ancillary medical benefits and 401(k) available. * Our treatment rooms are completely remodeled and beautiful. We supply all creams, lotions, gels, linens & equipment and have Hydraulic tables, table warmers & towel warmers, as well as iPads for SOAP charting in each treatment room. * We celebrate diversity and are a LGBTQ friendly employer. About "This" Position We are looking for a Licensed Massage Therapist who is in good standing with the OBMT to join us at our Cedar Hills location. ME TeamLaszlo is full of great mission driven LMTs, helping Oregonians who live with chronic or acute pain and don't have enough means to afford spa treatments or weekly chiro visits. This isn't about sides, we all win if we can get our community off harsh pharmaceuticals. Supplement your book of business or make us a long-term career. Join us for a shift a week or make it full-time. Set your hours, set your schedule and start making a difference in our community today. Have you recently relocated to Oregon? We can help secure your OBMT license. Just apply and ask us how. Are you a recent graduate from East West College or Oregon School of Massage? Congrats! Just apply and ask us how we can help you manage your student debt. Apply Today to get the conversation going!
