Current Employee - Operations Team Member  in  Saint Louis Park, MN
Current Employee - Operations Team Member in Saint Louis Park, MN

Pros

Membership, great fellow employees, most members are friendly, position not mentally challenging.

Cons

Some members are extremely rude and disrespectful, overwelming amount of work for very little pay, expectation to work nights, weekends and on ALL holidays with NO extra pay! Disrespect on some level from the top down...the role is bottom of the barrel and you are treated as such. All responsibility for operations will fall on your shoulders even at the team member level, you do what no one else wants to do, and do it in an undrestaffed environment while making very little money for the amount of hard work expected. Pay is less in this position than similar positions in other companies because of the free membership (which you will barely use if you are full time because you essentially live there and do not want to be there when you don't have to be.) I would advise only working in this position part time for the free membership and have another job that pays better as your primary income, this is a burn out role for full time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay employees fairly, give incentives, pay time and a half for holidays or allow holidays off, respect your employees and recognize them for hard work.

    Current Employee - Overnight Facility Operations Supervisor  in  Maple Grove, MN
    Current Employee - Overnight Facility Operations Supervisor in Maple Grove, MN

    Pros

    Free gym membership * Flexible Schedule * Nice Co-Workers

    Cons

    No holiday pay for Operations Employees at Maple Grove Facility * No break room available to employees * Operations employees paid under the Federal Poverty Guideline * Training is irrelevant to the tasks performed * Department Heads at each facility receive $3600.00 quarterly bonuses if they understaff and undercut supplies for their teams by 15% of their monthly budget. * Pressured by Corporate and Management to pay the company $20.00 of one's own money and volunteer New Year's Day (or work without additional holiday pay/compensation at one's home facility) for a 5k run/member drive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If Management wants 5-Star facilities, it's only fair to pay 5-Star wages. When comparing to other companies with similar business models, Life Time is far below the median wage by at least $3.00/hr. But Life Time is making money, so they are doing something right for upper management's wallet.

    Former Employee - Department Head  in  Cary, NC

    Pros

    Beautiful facility. Clean environment...DH's do an incredible job.

    Cons

    Managers are expected to give up their entire lives to work at Life Time. There is no work/life balance and managers are treated poorly. They are expected to be on call 24/7 and give up everything else if called. I was called back in from out of town once when there was dust and dead bugs in the corner of my area. I would not advise anyone to work in management at LTF.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk a day in your Department Heads shoes. When someone gives you their all, make sure you are giving something back to them.
