I worked at Equinox Fitness full-time for less than a year

Pros

Nice gym... That's about it!

Cons

Employees for starters are mostly elitist like the rich and mostly white customers and are very high schoolish at that. So many cliques. The employee turn-around is bad at this place. I've never seen so many people leave, quit or fired. I've always seen a new employee every week, every other week, every month. The maintenance department has it worse than any other if you ask me. They are treated like lower class citizens and most of the people who work in maintenance are non-speaking citizens. They work you like a hebrew slave while most of the other people like the shop keep, cafe and even the front desk people are standing there chatting away while getting paid to do absolutely nothing. It's good to know that people get paid to do nothing there while the maintenance crew are working their butt off! The pay is also bad with the amount of work that has to be done. Upper management are just pathetic just to put it mildly. If you want a career at this place, you better look elsewhere 'cause you're pretty much SOL in the end when they toss you out in the streets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is none, because Equinox will find a way to get rid of them! C'est la vie!

    I have been working at Equinox Fitness part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    same as any other gym

    Cons

    not really much to complain about from a group fitness standpoint- although I used to work here as a personal trainer and there is plenty to complain about on that side
