I have been working at In-Shape Health Clubs full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Gym membership, work environment, and members

Cons

Membership Counselor (MC) pay structure is below poverty. The information in the “salary tab” on this website is incorrect. They pay $8.00 hourly or commission whichever is more. In-Shape (IS) manipulates the system so they do not have to provide medical benefits to full-time employees by keeping their hours work lower than 40 hrs. Too much work to complete within an 8 hour day if you are producing. Employees will be written up if they do not clock out within 8 hours. Nevertheless, they are expected to work on their “own time” to complete paperwork before they can leave for the day. Otherwise they will be punished by way of getting yelled at or being setup for production failure one way or another the next working day or week. Upper management is never satisfied if a team is doing well, instead they find something else that needs to be improved.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I can continue with many more cons, but there is a minimum word count. The company itself needs a new up dated corproate business structure. The payroll department needs an overhaul. There is no reason for employees to have to do extra work by keeping personal records and having to prove their sales in order to be paid the correct amount due on each paycheck.

    With the company growing so quickly, it's easy to advance. They like to hire internally, so if you work hard, you will have plenty of opportunities.

    I worked at In-Shape Health Clubs part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Free gym membership for employees, which is a money saver. The staff is very friendly and easy to work with. Usually there is a lot of down time during the afternoons, so depending on what time your shift is, you can do other things (e.g. homework, if you are a student). Training is easy, and overall the job is not too hard.

    Cons

    Pay is low, with no raise, ever. Worked there for over two years without a single raise. You have to stand during your entire shift, and sometimes you are not allowed a break. Dealing with customers is horrible at times, especially for those trying to cancel memberships or sneak in to the club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add more than one worker to the front desk. There should be at least 2 at all times.
