    Pros

    The company has a great foundation of management. If you are willing to learn they will provide you with all the tools you need to succeed and grow. The atmosphere of the gyms is great, never a dull moment. The interaction with the staff and the members makes every day enjoyable.

    The job can be demanding at times but it comes with the responsibility!

    Pros

    I like working for cal fit because of the coworkers, the flexible schedule and the free gym membership.

    Cons

    I've been working for Cal Fit now for over 3.5 years been promoted twice and only make $10 an hour. They do not offer raises to child care staff. They expect so much from you for so little pay. They expect part-time staff to be consistently available for shift coverages even though they given limited hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat child care staff better, they are the ones who retain members. Offer raises.

    I have been working at California Family Fitness

    Pros

    Love the company and facilities

    Cons

    Be prepared to sell (harass) people into joining. Must be willing to work booths at events, the mall, or even outside of a safeway/walmart/cvs. You are also expected to gather your own leads so being willing to pass out fliers and ask people for their phone numbers for you to call them is also a job requirement. Turn over is extremely high, not only for consultants, but also for the management team. Sales department seems to need an overhaul completely. The top sales producers are rewarded with contests and prizes as well as great commission checks, however, from what I have seen so far, the top producers are the ones doing the most shady and unethical things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend more consistency between managers. Seems as though even though we are one company all located within the same Sacramento area, each club operates independently and each manager has a completely different way of running their club.

    I have been working at California Family Fitness full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    No 2 days are the same. Upper management makes you feel appreciated, and as a result, staff is willing to go the extra mile. Loyal and commited compnay that that makes you feel as if they are only as strong as the people they have working for them - with that being said, they always seem to be interested in promoting growth within the company.

    Cons

    Long and demanding hours. Work has become a huge part of my life - but it is also because I take pride in it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to those of us that are in the trenches. With every club having it's own culture, it is hard to place everyone under the same blanket. Keep grouth in mind, but not at the expense of a lower service level.

    California Family Fitness is a small LLC corporation that seems to have poor customer service.

    Pros

    The pay for the job is incredible, if you are a great sales person. The facility as a whole is very nice and pleasant to work in.

    Cons

    You won't have a lot of personal growth here as an employee, because nobody cares about your well-being. The job consistently demands for sales and new business. Since the job demands sales it never it allows for the employees to professional grow, thus is the reason for the high turn over rate of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to better train their staff, so that the company to grow as a whole. If you teach the employees of professional service the company will produce just that.

    I have been working at California Family Fitness full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great way to gain confidence and experience in a sales position. Benefits aren't bad.

    Cons

    The majority of training happens by learning the hard way. Corporate doesn't want to pay you your bonus you have to jump through a lot of hoops to ensure you get commission for your sales. Very seasonal industry. Company seems to have accepted an environment in their sales department that creates a very high turn over rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job teaching new hires all the requirements necessary for them to get paid for their work or consider loosening these requirements somehow. Do a better job of getting feedback from membership consultants not just sales managers.
