    Former Employee - General Manager in New York, NY

    I worked at New York Sports Club full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Solid pay but I was underpaid for how I felt I performed, personally. Great people to be around. Made a good living, won a lot of awards, helped develop some great employees.

    Cons

    Be prepared for potential long work hours. Be prepared for a lot of negativity from other employees. Lastly, it matters who you work for more than anything. That;s true of any job but some people are blessed to work with the right people here. Others, you're swimming upstream and I'm sorry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in the clubs more. Senior Directors visit your club once a month or two typically and base their assessment of you off of a sheet of paper and what they see in their short visit. Come around more and participate with the teams and see their struggles, not so they can build on their excuses but so you can feel more a part of the team and know your sites better. And bring real energy, not fake energy. The teams will buy into it more if they see you along side them more.

    I have been working at New York Sports Club full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There's really no horrible reason not to work here. It's the most stress free environment I've worked in and that's after working as a retail associate and an assistant in higher education. Just if only the pay was above minimum wage...

    Cons

    Some times members can give you a bit of a hassle trying to get their way but you stick to guns about the rules with everyone. Just if only the pay was above minimum wage...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave GM's some breathing room to get the "small" things their employees need from them...and that's true from all clubs in my area. Raise the pay above minimum wage...

    I have been working at New York Sports Club

    Pros

    The best reasons for working for NYSC are the great clients, the ability to work out after work and the interpersonal staff.

    The one downside is some clients are very unpleasant.

    NYSC is a great place. Continue the good work.

    I have been working at New York Sports Club full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good work environment, friendly coworkers and gym members, free gym membership to all New York Sports Clubs.

    Cons

    Can be a little slow for new personal trainers, in terms of getting clients. Pay isn't so great when working floor hours. The only way to make good money is to train clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not to have new floor trainers with so many floor hours, and no clients to train.
