Pros

Great pay, I earn the same as my brother who works for the government.
Another great thing is that you get to use the gym for free; free membership!
And the people are generally really nice.
The managers do a great job of keeping you in the loop and all you have to do is watch a pool and keep everyone from getting chemical burns. :D

Cons

There aren't really any cons.
The position of lifeguard looks pretty crappy on a resume..
Oh and if you work in the morning and it is not too loud there is a high risk of falling asleep. haha

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management.. hm... Pretty much nonexistent in this line of work.
Some cleaning to get done.
All i could ask for is a more efficient upper management.
I've needed my own key card for 2 months now

    Former Employee - Membership Consultant in Frederick, MD

    Pros

    As a Membership Consultant (i.e. selling memberships) The training provided is very helpful to learn how to create leads via marketing, make sales, and get referrals.

    Cons

    Can be competitive, must be a "self starter" and be willing to go talk to people/local businesses to gain the leads --> sales. Can be very rewarding, and good commissions. Base salary is decent, and they offer health/dental etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to promote more within the company, make sure sales goals are a little more easily attainable each month to help encourage Consultants.

    Pros

    The best thing about working for Sport&Health is that you receive a free gym membership, but I think you would probably be better off just paying for it.

    Cons

    Expect to be overworked and underpaid. Last year they changed the compensation plan for paying Membership Consultants Directors and the "increase in compensation" resulted in about 95% of the sales staff making far less money. I'm sure the company is saving a ton of money though by not having to pay it's employees half as much as they used too.
    The company is in constant indecision about what to do to solve their sales crisis and they keep changing pricing, rate structure, sales strategy, focus, ect ect. The one thing they haven't tried to work on yet is empowering their employees and giving them a reason to come to work on a daily basis and truly perform.

    It's crazy how much more successful everyone was when they all had more incentive (better pay structure for commission). We also used to get rewarded with a sales goal reduction for being ahead for the month which felt awesome. Management decided to take that away too.

    Your staff isn't paid enough to recruit talented people. You get to hire mediocre to even worse folks because no one else wants to work for 25-30k a year when they're putting in 50 hour weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is nothing wrong with your sales process stop changing it. You're just confusing your employees.

    There is something VERY wrong with how you treat your employees. Give them motivation, make work fun again and stop all the dumb micromanagement that does not help everyone be productive.

    Some of your absolutely terrible GMs and MDs are too insulated. They can do whatever they want and make their employees lives much harder than they need to be. That's just another reason why turnover is so high.
