    Under paid, over worked

    Fitness Advisor (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsThe fitness team are paid based on the 'Cosgrove' scale, but everyone else (reception, bar staff) are all paid minimum wage.

    ConsEveryone is expected to work Boxing day and New years day with no extra holiday or pay. Extremly low wages and no paid break on shift!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive your staff a paid break! It would not affect the buissiness at all and your staff would be much happier!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Don't Do It!

    General Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsThe facilities and the environment are good. There is a lot of involvement with the members, and this is a great experience if you enjoy making a difference to someones day.

    ConsLack of autonomy - in fact, a lack of ability to make any kind of managerial descision at all. Lack of care and respect for club members and team members alike. There is a lot of shift work as you might expect from facilities that are open extended hours, and of course the clubs are only closed 1 day a year. The holiday allowance is the legal minimum, and unlike all other fitness clubs, they are not generous enough to give you free membership (or even a discount!) for partners.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate! Allow the entrepreneurial spirit that Duncan is so proud of to permeate to club level, and stop trying to control everything.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
