    I worked at 24 Hour Fitness full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are excellent. Free gym access to all clubs. The culture is great too. You are surrounded by great people.

    Cons

    It seems that your direct supervisor is supportive but north of that they seem intimidated. Don't think you can move from club life to corporate life. They won't let it happen. Poor compensation plan. New compensation plan was said to favor employees but it did the opposite, especially for employees that were previously on commission

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage growth into all areas of the company.

    I worked at 24 Hour Fitness full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Tend to promote from within
    2. Big gyms are more energetic than smaller ones
    3. Pay can be decent if your club or team is successful on a monthly basis
    4. Clubs are fun to work at if the members like you. Not many jobs offer the opportunity to see 50 of your friends come to your work on a daily basis.
    5. You can work hard and get promoted quickly - tend to be merit based not just tenure based.

    Cons

    1. Little management training in house once promoted
    2. Some clubs are falling apart, hard to have pride and no ability to fix
    3. Some higher level mid-management leaders are out of touch because the business has moved past them.
    4. Company has a tendency to over-promise sometimes
    5. Benefits are just so-so

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage more education, particularly personal development and business training
