Pros

Flexible schedule, work like balance, good sales structure to introduce you to clients, good reward system to increase pay. Fun people. Plus you get to work at a gym...how great is that?

Cons

I imagine it would be really tough to make a full time living....I have another part time job, and it's pretty easy to score 20 sessions a week (but you do have to work to get an maintain clients. All of the resources are there for you though). It's kind of a macho atmosphere too. You also have to pay for your own education, which is understandable, but a drawback.

Advice to Management

More free education opportunities!

  1. This position is about closing the sale at any expense... including flat out lying to the potential buyer.

    Pros

    Free membership casual dress could eat at desk

    Cons

    They have a major lack of communication and even though it's part of doing your job correctly they still don't communicate things to you. They are geared more towards quanitity over quality. They run too many specials which brings in more members which makes the current members angry. They will release you from you job for very trivial things but allow people who are actually breaking the law to stay employed with them. Overall not a very good place to work. Not compensated for the things you do well.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage. Take some classes on communication with employees. Praise those who do things well and save the firing for people who actually do stuff wrong that affects how they do their job.
