    I have been working at Las Vegas Athletic Club full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place if you are in to working out at the gym. You can work out at lunch or before/after work

    Cons

    This is basically a family ran business, lots of favoritism and promotion of family members rapidly. Office staff is micro managed, the pay is low, and the management does not like you to take any time off. This is NOT the place that you will want to stay long term. Stay for as long as you need to, then move on.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees RIGHT. Positive reinforcement works so much better than negative. You've got gyms that people love, why not have jobs that people love too?

    I worked at Las Vegas Athletic Club part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free membership Child Care- don't do much but watch kids.

    Cons

    At my work place there was obvious favoritetism towards certain employees. Wasn't as professional as I thought. work experience isn't really useful unless you plan to work with kids for a while. You have to complete a certain credit of classes and get certified.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Las Vegas Athletic Club full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    employees get free fitness club membership, room for advancement and encouragement to do so. The owners work close with all the staff as they can with such a largely growing company.

    Cons

    My only regret is that I now live in New Jersey and cannot work for them at this time

    Advice to Management

    Open some locations in New Jersey please.


  8. In my 4 years with the company I made some life long friends and being new to LV it was a great way to meet people.

    I worked at Las Vegas Athletic Club full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Trainer: Cheap rent or you can train/teach for the club to wave rent. Access to thousands of potential clients. Sales: 401K, Benefits, 2 week paid vacation, commissions.

    Cons

    Open 365 days a year, might have to work Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years. If you are a trainer it is near impossible between 4pm-8pm to train, the place is a zoo.

    Advice to Management

    I think the Club manager should manage not sell. The emphasis always seems to be on sales and sometime the club/customer suffers because someone is trying to get the gross.

    Pros

    Free membership when you have a shift at one of the clubs. Good place to network, especially if you work the front desk.

    Cons

    The way they train employees is ridiculous across the board. The way they train you to work at one club could be different than the way you work at another location, more so for housekeepers than any other position, which leads to write ups from managers if your job is not done properly. The hourly for a sales person is below minimum wage and the commission off of a membership sign up is 3%. Any chance of advancement is slim unless you know one of the two families that own the company. The work environment is not the best, for example, low morale, a lot of bickering among sales people, and preferential treatment of certain people. Bad communication all the way around about changes in policies, procedures, etc. from the top people at corporate down to housekeepers.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay of your employees by a couple of dollars.

    I worked at Las Vegas Athletic Club part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you have a membership with the company before you go to work for them they will freeze your account so you don't have to pay and add credit for the time you put in. Also working front desk allows you to network with new people to find a better job.

    Cons

    There is no, '' one standard for everyone '' training program for housekeeping or front desk positions. If you neglect to do something because that is how you were trained management loves to hand out write - ups. In many instances I had to train some nineteen year old manager how to do their job which to me is totally unacceptable. Unfortunately the proverb, '' It's not what you know but who you know '' applies at this company. Like the previous person said before because there are two families that own the company there is no room for advancement and they only care about lining their own pockets.

    Advice to Management

    Show some appreciation to your employee's because they are the people making you filthy rich and maybe you wouldn't have such a high turnover rate.
