DOES NOT close EVER. Had to drive through 6" of snow to get to work one day (I wish I was exaggerating about this!).

    Pros

    Free gym membership and working in a healthy environment.

    Cons

    No room for growth and a very judgemental management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making fake facebook profiles for members and your own staff to get sexual content back on your work time and in general for enjoyment. Try not being judgemental in a judgement free zone and making a negative comment on every member that walks in the gym because your so selfconcious yourself. Try going to work to work!

    Pros

    Met some really nice people that come to the gym to work out.

    Cons

    Planet Fitness is the worst company that I've ever worked for. They don't care about the their club managers or employees - they only care about the monthly dues coming in. It's all about the money to them and the owners. Starting employees out at $8 per hour is a disgrace, especially with what is expected. No reimbursement for mileage or gas to attend the meetings held in Newington. Was required to have a cell phone and be reachable 24/7 but never compensated. Regional managers only care about how good they look to Chris Rondeau. The CEO needs to work a club for a few days to see how hard the managers work and how little they are compensated. No opportunity for advancement and never supported if they have an issue at the club. Take my advice - don't ever take a job with them because eventually you will do something wrong and you will be fired!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the regional managers - they are a waste of salary.
