    Pros

    Very open schedule, ability to have complementary club membership, great employees discounts. Good atmosphere to work.

    Cons

    No room to grow, management of club very unprofessional. Pay is very low compared to similar jobs in the city.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clubs have great talent throughout. it will be a good idea to consider feedback from line employees to have a better idea on what is going on. Also in the process of obtaining members surveys questions about club management should be included.

    I worked at Equinox Fitness full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and perks. Pay is very good.

    Cons

    Very long hours and Corporate runs the show. It's not fun if you don't hit your Budget. Sometimes the budget they give you is almost impossible!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Families and time off are important. You should recognize that. It's not all about the numbers at the end of the month
