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

    Pros

    Working for this company is nothing like a boring office job. The environment is full of energy, excitement and great people and every day is different. There is so much opportunity at Cal Fit whether you are just looking for a part time job, or a career. If you are interested in moving up, management takes the time to prepare you, and the internal growth opportunity is amazing! I have had the best 4 years so far with this company, and plan on many more!

    Cons

    Disrespect from angry members (comes with the job!) And sometimes long demanding hours.

    Pros

    California Family Fitness is one of the best jobs that I have had to date. We have a great team and a lot of (mostly) fabulous members who make coming to work fun. Operations upper management is very supportive and involved. I love working in an environment where people are actively working to improve themselves daily. Flexible with school schedule.

    Cons

    The hours can be quite demanding

    Advice to Management

    Provide better training for up and coming management and incentive for continuing education for veteran managers

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

    Pros

    California Family Fitness has by far been the best team I have worked with and the experience has been priceless. Very supportive senior management and club management teams. The relationships that we are able to build with each other and the members makes coming to work enjoyable. Hard work pays off and is recognized.

    Cons

    Some days can be hectic and fast paced. Frustrated members can be challenging at times. Not a job for the timid or thin-skinned!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow the company and create more opportunities for advancement. Expand Corporate teams for greater club support.

    Pros

    Plenty of leads to choose from and very clean work environment. Customers were awesome and it was nice to get a free gym membership.

    Cons

    They were way to corporate. Maxed out on my pay scale after just one year and lost incentive to grow with the company. The only opportunity to increase my hourly pay was to move to an assistant manager position which did not seem like the juice was worth the squeeze. All the fitness manager complained of crappy pay.

    Advice to Management

    Chillax a bit. Listen to your employees and offer additional ways to grow within the company as far as pay is concerned.

    Pros

    Fun work environment, cool employees

    Cons

    lack of pay, strong disconnect between corporate and employees, disorganized mid management

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees(especially trainers) and you will attract/retain higher caliber employees. Employee development is poor

    I have been working at California Family Fitness part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The co workers and people are great. Also the gym I work at is small and most guest are legitimately nice to you.

    Cons

    Some guest are rude and snobs. Management cares nothing about the employees. They are a California based company with rules that would only be accepted in Utah, example no facial hair, no visable tattoos, men can't have earrings, etc...itsnot 1960 anymore get over it. The cooperate level management is crude, condescending and there is a tone of racism from them unless you are there "token" black guy. With the exception of the gyms in the south you will only see one or maybe up to 4 black people at most locations and many of those people are about as black as a polar bear. They want to make everyone fit the "proper" white Anglo-Saxon appearance I guarantee you will never see a man with dreads working there with the exception of the gyms in south sac. Also the management also will reward the biggest brown noisers or money makers everyone else is treated as not valuable.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your high horse and remember people matter. I would have thought better of Randy the CEO because he seems to be a genuinely nice man. But the other staff in cooperate are judgemental and sub-councious racist. A job should be based on work performed and attendence not if you like the person or not.

    Pros

    You will form friendships with members, and you will be come friends with your coworkers even faster. Everyone is great except corporate.

    Cons

    Working in sales was a challenge because when you're starting they basically toss you to the wolves. Sink or swim.

    Advice to Management

    It would be more beneficial to really train your staff. If they are struggling help them. Understand that money isn't everything and members are more important. Most of the managers I've work with talk about members as ways to get their next paycheck instead of actually wanting to help them meet their goals. When you have ideas they shun them, and force you to do what they want. If you give your employees a voice let them use it.
