Working at LTF has made me want to never work in the fitness industry ever again.

I have been working at Life Time Fitness

Pros

- Free membership
- Nice, big clubs.
- Most folks you encounter are nice.
- You have employment.
- If you drink enough kool-aid, you may go places in the company.

Cons

- Poor, narcissistic management from top to bottom.
- As a requirement for employment, management makes all employees memorize a phony mission and vision statement, they themselves do not follow. It's like joining an occult rather then a company.
- Say "goodbye" to friends and family, your life is work.
- Poorly written, and purposely vague employee manual.
- 7 days PTO, per year, that's it! If you get the flu and can't work for a week, your vacation time is gone!
- Prepare to work the equivalent of 2-3 employees, that's how they save on payroll.
- Employee beware, the GM does not tell you your complete job responsibility at the time of the interview...on purpose.
- If you think you are earning a set salary, think again. After you calculate all the extra hours you will be made to work, you'll be lucky to make minimum wage.
- Turnover is rampant.
- After a while it seems less like you are working at a health club, but more like a prison.
- You are forced to clean the parking lot at no pay.
- Everyone seems miserable.
- The powers use the word "artistry" to the point of nauseum. (Its actually the name of a huge golden statue they worship at the home office, no kidding!)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You call yourself "The Healthy Way of Life Company" but obviously that was not intended for your employees. Capitalism is alive and well at LTF!

    Overall it is a positive atmosphere to work in, it's just that I feel under-appreciated due to my pay.
