Rich Trevasani was the owner when I worked there. What a joke. I see people disagree with my previous post. Experience isn't good enough for you people? lol

Yet you young women keep going to work for the owner of Hawaiian Holiday for peanuts. Why?? Is unlimited "FREE" tanning for employees part of the "pay package" you receive for working there?? You're all going to have skin that looks like and has the texture of dry-ass ELEPHANT skin by the time you hit 40 years old, or wind up with skin cancer. So keep on using those tanning beds, dummies, for you'll all pay in one way or another for looking unnaturally dark later on in life--mark my words!

I guarantee a tanning booth user will come to regret his/her time paying for this abuse. It does cause skin cancer. When is too much, we don't know? They have banned these cancer boxes for younger people and rightly so. I personally know people who got skin cancer because of this and know other women who look like a wrinkled up prune and feel like alligator hide. It must be relaxing inside one?! Stay away and spend your money on something else!!

Hawaiin Holiday in herkimer is so gross! I doubt they even clean the beds. The last time i went there to tan i paid $14 or something to go in a bronzing bed and half of the bulbs didnt even work. I was so angry. I went out and told the young girl and she was like "oh yeah, I know." She was so stupid about it. If you know a bed has many bulbs out do not send someone in there especially if they are paying at least 14 dollars to go in the bed. This place is a joke!!! Do Not waste your money here!

Whichever disgruntled current employee that is working there, or owner, is "disagreeing, saying we're clueless and incendiary"...what are your reasons? Truth hurt? I'm obviously not clueless about what I'm saying when I WORKED there before and dealt with Rich, and his crappy little poodle haired "district manager", his mother, his brother-in-law, I think his sister came in once...this place is a JOKE, it SUCKS, they have NO CLUE what they are doing, Rich probably wouldn't know how to even change a bulb in one of HIS tanning beds, he doesn't care, they have over priced lotions (I go to Tanning Bed in Utica and their lotions are about 75% less than HH), it's filthy, they are unorganized (I remember, I attempted to organize the place once), their bathrooms are disgusting and never worked, the basement would FLOOD and it would be NASTY and smell bad when you walked in, there is no parking, the employees are rude and are always on their cell phones, like the person before me said: they charge OBSCENE amounts of money, for "better beds", that have 6 bulbs out, Rich tried to make ME break bulbs in boxes and put them in dumpsters instead of disposing of them PROPERLY (he didn't even supply safety goggles).....should I keep going??? Or is that enough??? I went back there to tan ONCE, about a year after I left, and it was way worse than I had just described.

Why don't you bring the issue up to the owner who needs to know about issues like this? It would be more beneficial thank talking about it here on Topix.
I went there and the staff were talking amongst themselves for over 10 min before waiting on me, then they gave me a hard time stating that i owed money? I went there years before and since and never was told that, plus i pay in cash , how would i owe money? well i left my number for them to call me to straighten it out, they never called, i tried to call the manager over 10 times, never got a response, if i owed them wouldnt you think they would want to collect? So i cant go there bc i have a "balance" which i dont, but am told that, but yet noone is willing to clear it up with me? when i did go i did the spray tan and it did nothing at all, i do not recommend that place, the girls are very stuck up and come across as if you are bothering them when you come in..

I won't ever go there again - the owner spends the money for cheap glam and glitz, but the beds are all contaminated with Mrsa ( methacilin resistant staph infection) it creates boils and painful cysts under ur skin frm contact. Very very contagious. Don't bring ur filth to Herkimer county. Parents- keep ur teens safe and ask where they go to tan..... No hawiian horror.

Recently they hired a very nice young man there. Most of the staff before did not explain tanning packages, how to use beds; everything. This young man helped me chose a membership in my price range and offered facts and opinions on lotions and the tanning beds they offer. Hawaiian Holiday should hire more punctual and helpful employees like him. He is also very nice to have a conversation with!
Right?!? They screwed me over because I have never been there and the girl told me that I could pay $50 a month for the diamond beds and then if you don't want it anymore to send a letter in to cancel it... Umm turns out I can't because I signed a contract which for one I never even saw and she never told me I was I thought I was signing for my credit card. And the management was very unhelpful. Never doing business with them again.

Ugh, DONOT ever go to this place. I went in to see about joining. These snooty young girls are busy on their cell phones or talking to each other before waiting on customers. I turned around and walked right out. I will go to a professional place when spending my money. This place was a real joke.

As a former employee, and someone who was thrown into a "management" position (because EVERYONE quit at the Herkimer salon about 5 years ago and left them with no workers) I can honestly say that this place is run by a complete moron. He would come into the salon about once a month, just to complain about shit. He would never take the time to make changes that were necessary or take suggestions from customers. A woman came in once an complained about the nasty rooms, which I agreed with and took care of immediately. They looked like they hadn't been cleaned in YEARS! He basically doesn't care about his customers, or employees, at all. I see that they are opening a new salon (or already have) on Main St, which looks like it will help with parking. Other than that, I'm sure it will be the same old bullshit. What do you expect from girls from Herkimer, though? Most of them are stuck up snobs and this is probably their first job.
When you were thrown into that position what did the Manager at the time tell you would happen??? Exactly what happened yes
