Former Employee - Member Engagement Advisor in Chicago, IL
Former Employee - Member Engagement Advisor in Chicago, IL

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

Pros

I have seen advisers make sickening amounts of money
young/fun culture
free meals and drinks often
great training program
free gym membership ( Though I never had time to use it)
great on-boarding pay for first 6 months
Loved the sales managers and GM I had at my location- extremely helpful and kind.
Relatively fun and easy position.

Cons

Very high turnover
It wasn't surprising to see advisers working entire months without days off to hit personal targets.
To be successful you will need to put in between 65-80 hours each week.
You never get weekends off. Most advisers work holidays.
Bad work/life balance. I felt married to my career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start encouraging your workers to live the healthy way of life.
Promote those who are eager to inspire and teach. Not those who are only good for working 28 days straight.
Don't use non-paid days off as *gifts*.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    You will get plenty of hours and free access to the club.

    Cons

    Poor management, very high turnover, lots of corporate propaganda, and management will rarely if ever back you up instead choosing to bribe complaining customers with LT Bucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with more respect and they will provide a better customer service experience.
