    Pros

    Positive environment that wants you to set goals and better your self. Pay is decent for retail and have the Jamie to make
    Commission.

    Cons

    Feedback all the time on common sense things. Want you to be a bubbly person even if that's
    Not your personality, not very creative, very clean And modern design sense so if you don't connect to that it may be diffacult.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to different personalities, you should look at how well people do the job at hand and not
    How much they work out or how bubbly their personality is.

    Pros

    Company has great values and very team oriented. Everyone sets goals and creates a support system. Free group fitness classes.

    Cons

    Mandatory to work one weekend day minimum. Very difficult to change shifts with coworkers or request time off.

    Advice to Management

    Managers do not do or value the work of employees below them. Take time to value the educators and work they put in to the store.

    Pros

    health and fitness centered, culture of positivity and personal development. entrepreneurial environment

    Cons

    each store is given a lot of room to run their business as it sees fit, leaving it open to weakness if the leadership is weak

    Advice to Management

    stick to your commitment to personal development and really nurturing the culture. keep and expand yoga and fitness benefits, as this is not only a great way to put the brand out in the community, but is a natural stress reducer and team builder.

    Pros

    Upbeat, fun and health- oriented workspace.

    Cons

    Too much focus on feedback. We were
    Encouraged to give others feedback and at times I felt pressured to find something negative about coworkers in order to help in their "development." Working Weekends were a drawback

  10. Fun. But maybe too much.

    Pros

    Fun environment, co workers have a great attitude, 60% discount on all items if full time 40% if part time

    Cons

    It easy for people to get their way. You are not allowed to talk about other coworkers so if they are doing something wrong and deny it, your out of luck.

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay for educators and management.
