Pros

Great for students and they work well around your schedule if you are part-time. You also get a free membership.

Cons

Little or no raises. You also have to purchase your own uniforms. They often over hire so you work minimal hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is one trainer that I know of that obviously has a close enough comfort level with his clients that his language is foul and he talks about other clients in negative ways to them.

    Pros

    Free membership. The members and staff are great people and are the main reason for going to work every day.

    Cons

    Very little pay and lots of responsibility. The company is constantly adding more duties to your job due to low membership sales and high numbers of cancellations. Management is dishonest and shady in order to accomplish their goals. Support from General Managers and upper management is minimal. Management and corporate rules by intimidation and fear. Issues within the club are never addressed or solved. The attitude is just suck it up and deal with it. Most General Managers are incompetent due to having little to no previous management experience. This company is all about numbers and not people and that includes their members and staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time in the clubs and find out what is really going on and how the club operates instead of just taking the General Manager's word for it. Support your employees instead of making them fear you. You are a 1.2 billion dollar company, you can afford to increase wages from minimum wage. Run the company according to your mission and vision statement.

    Pros

    we helped people lead healthier lives with innovative programs and design

    Cons

    overall bad experience.
    Forgot to pay me on several occasions.
    100% commission environment= lots of people stealing sales.
    management did "shady" business behind the scenes, lots of GREED.
    Nobody really has your back, not a great team environment in the PT department.
    Benefits ....what benefits??
    Zero work life balance
    you are just a dollar sign to senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the complaints. Learn how to treat your trainers, the ones who are bringing in all the money.
