Pros

Free membership Athletic and fitness-based attitude Beautiful health club

Cons

Awful scheduling- often asked to go home early, work late, or come in as a substitute Low pay for the tier of health club, and little room for promotion Supervisors are disorganized and generally unhelpful

Advice to Management

You claim to "promote from within"- completely rehiring staff and not even giving a basic raise to returning staff does not seem to follow your creed. Also, the GMs rarely seem to provide any oversight to their managers, which leads to inefficiencies.

    Pros

    It is a great place to work because you are working with like minded people. Ex athletes, health and fitness pros. There is a lot of satisfaction in helping people.

    Cons

    benefits and commission based salary. You make your money off of sales. If you have a slow month you feel it in your paycheck. Benefits are weak. The insurance and 401K matching in sub par in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Beautiful facilities; met some great members and some nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Overall sense of dour attitudes of employees; few smiles or eye contact when passing by. Low pay; If you want to hire and retain quality coaches, you must pay them accordingly, or they will not stay very long. Constant Intranet assessment testing and training (many of them were an insult to my intelligence). Poor DH leadership skills; poor communicative skills. High turnover rate. My DH showed up at our club once per week--he was DH at 2 separate clubs, hence a chaotic/dysfunctional working atmosphere; poor programming; he played one against the other-behind the back criticism; the other club he DH'd at he only worked for 9-2PM.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to recognize quality, credentialed employees and pay them or you'll always be stuck with a mediocre staff.
