    Their marketing tactics are stuck in the stone age!

    MEMBERSHIP COUNSELOR (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat relations you make with members and co workers.

    ConsUnorganized management and poor training. If you are not comfortable bugging members for friend referrals or tracking people down on the street to drag them into the gym, which is referred to as (Street Hustle), then stay far away from this position. You would have thought their marketing tactics had progressed since the stone age!

    Advice to Senior ManagementImplement sales strategies that actually work.

    A fun place to work

    Financial Analyst (Former Employee) San Ramon, CA

    ProsGoing to work here was fun. Everyone was young at heart and there was a big focus on employee satisfaction. We were encourage to take a long lunch in order to work out. This made it less difficult to work long hours when needed.

    ConsSome of the upper management didn't seem qualified to run a large corporation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone, I was happy with it.

    Overall Great

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros-Fun place to work
    -great for networking
    -learn how to run a business first hand
    While I was there, I met some amazing people and developed great friendships. I also learned so much about sales and how to implement processes to run a business efficiently.

    Cons-The pay. You cant have a hardcore sales structure on a low hourly wage
    -Too many politics. The higher you go up in management the more it feels like high school with cliques, etc
    -department heads have very little wiggle room to manage

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe few d-bags that hated working are no longer there and for good reasons. All other management has done great.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Can be better~

    Personal Trainer II (Former Employee) Hasbrouck Heights, NJ

    ProsSince 24 Hr Fitness gym offers more amenities than other local smaller gyms, it attracts many people to join and that means there are more potential for PT to find new clients.

    ConsPT Managers are not as helpful as you will find and they care more about meeting the monthly sales quota more than PT development and skills.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo more hands on training with the PT under you and give them more incentives if they meet their monthly sales quota.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    My experience here at 24 was amazing, I loved seeing people satisfied and motivated about their health.

    Service Lead (Former Employee) Greenacres, FL

    ProsHere at 24, you get a chance to see and help people accomplish the health goals as well as set some for yourself. You have a team that works together to ensure a clean, friendly and well-maintained gym.

    ConsSome of the challenges can be the hours of working. If someone doesn't show for their shift you maybe called in for that shift which could be overnight.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy only advice would be to make sure the kids club attendants are more involved with the successes of the gym and well as the company.
