Great employees, facilities, poor upper management

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

Pros

Equinox attracts really stellar people. I worked as a massage therapist in the spa, but made friends in every department. It really felt like a tight-knit, loving family. We really took care of each other. Even many of the members felt like a part of the family. Plus, the free gym membership and yoga/fitness classes can't be beat...and there's so much eye candy! I'd pay for an Eq membership.

Cons

Management is the worst. Our club was a revolving door, managers coming and going every few months. It takes ages for anything to get done. My pay was late once due to a payroll error and it took them almost a week to fix- zero sense of urgency when it comes to taking care of their people. Very little employee appreciation = very high dissatisfaction and turn over.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You're people matter. Act like it.

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

    Pros

    great place to workout but not to work

    Cons

    too long hours for so little pay. Day where there were no clients I didn't make a dime but still had to give free chair massages to create clientele! This was not my own business to build but they treated me like I was a work dog without care for my wellbeing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take better care of your employees .. and upper management create a baseline where the massage therapist make minimume wage when they don't have a client that day NOT just in an over view of what's grater. TO work without pay doesn't work!

    Probably one of the more friendly atmosphere you would encounter in an upscale, superficial environment

    I have been working at Equinox Fitness part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Macro Management
    They supply everything
    Good facilities
    Good pay compared to the industry (ONCE you build your clientele)
    Friendly and respectable colleagues and managers

    Cons

    You have to build your own clientele to make money, otherwise you only get minimum wage
    The clientele is more likely to be focus on pure wellness and outer beauty then genuine health
    Your physical appearance can have a say in how you are perceived and your level of success

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider creating more workshops and knowledge sharing for the employees
    Create different bonus incentives for the employees (besides free classes - we already get that from trading with the trainers and instructors)
