Horrible! Unrealistic Expectations of Sales People

Former Employee - Assistant Operations Manager in Houston, TX
Former Employee - Assistant Operations Manager in Houston, TX

I worked at LA Fitness full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Free gym membership. Learned how to lie and manipulate people. Sad.

Cons

Work off the clock or you won't make money. Work 90+ hours a week and if you don't break commission you get paid minimum wage. Commission is broke when you make more selling memberships than you would hourly. Gorilla Marketing ~ Must find your own leads to generate business. Management gets all walk ins. Even when goals are reached they set them even higher to be unachievable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Demeaning employees is not a motivator. Your turn over is so high because you simply do care about employees. You use them until they are broken down and have no soul left.

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

    Pros

    Free Gym membership, Absolutely no accountability as long as you are selling, Free parking.

    Cons

    Minimum wage plus commission (which they take back if the client does ,and they will, cancel their membership) and bonuses which you will hardly see due to their horrible accounting practices. The training packages they try and sell are overpriced for the level of service they provide. How can you expect a paying client to continue to pay upwards of $200+ a month for a training package when they are being guided by a trainer who gets paid $6 for a 25 minute session. The trainers are a joke at LA Fitness and most clients will likely figure this out within their first month and then try and cancel when they discover an even better trainer at the local gym or park who charges less and delivers more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in your product. The trainers! If you want to keep loyal customers, invest in the education and quality of your trainers so that they can feel valued and deliver superior results to the clients.

    I have been working at LA Fitness full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice Facility, Great Locker Room, that's it, no employee room, no office for conferences or training, and building issues all the time

    Cons

    Constant Payroll Issues, which they blame on everything but the real truth, they forgot to tell you really how they pay. Then as you may as well know, this company has many class action suites against them for fraud and deceptive actions towards its customers. The sad part once you have been working for them 1 month, all those complaints seem true. They change pricing like they change underwear, they offer less than what they tell folks, they high pressure their sales staff but offer lack of training, support and materials let alone put them in a loosing situation with less than a chance to make any of the bonus they promise. I could go on, but here is the main thing. This company has no intention of changing anything even when they fail, and you if accept a position will be who they blame. The upper management ,VP ect have no care for any employee or members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn Continuous Improvement, Hire a marketing company so you will know your demographic, Train your Staff, Finally get some ethics and morals. Basically if you have been in this business or in management , do not accept a position with this company, you will be wasting your time ,money and could be wasting a better opportunity with another company who may offer you a beeter career path.
