    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.

    I worked at California Family Fitness part-time (more than an year)

    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.

    The members are the b est part about working fot the company along with the staff interaction. You are always doing something and never having a dull moment.

    More visitation from upper management and possibly coming in at busy times to "work" and see what the clubs are really like at primetimes.

    I have been working at California Family Fitness full-time

    Pros

    Cal Fit has ample opportunities to grow with the company and move up. There's always a smile on my managers face and the open door policy that makes me feel very comfortable. I'm encouraged to build professional relationships with customers and employees as well as give process improvement ideas that will NEVER be ignored.

    Cons

    Constantly busy, there's never a dull moment or "down time". It comes with the growth of the company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Praise ALL employees for the hard work they do!

    I worked at California Family Fitness full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1) free gym membership
    2) You can quit
    3) you will meet other great people who are in the same horrible place

    Cons

    Experience, Work Ethic, Ethics, Talent, independent thinking, innovation, work/life balance, integrity, happinesse, are qualities that actually will hurt your career here. If you want to start a career or have aspirations of moving up, dont work here, Every single talented person that could really make a difference, always leaves because they are not valued, Revolving door of consultants with the same i small group of insecure and deceiving corporate leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people, value their well being...think long term, not just about that month..stop selling memberships for 20 bucks
