    I have been working at Life Time Fitness part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people.... thats really it, unless you enjoy cleaning. You will always be busy.

    Cons

    Management does not care about you personally, members are stuck up and are super demanding, and so is management, the GM checks your work all the time, and you have to clean toilets and will see a lot of disgusting things in the operations department. The pay isn't what it should be for the amount of work they give us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay more, treat employees better.

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness

    Pros

    My job is to change lives, positively. We have great resources to help people make those changes. Immensely rewarding. Great for someone single who wants to work a ton of hours and advance. Benefits are a little costly but OK. Great sales opportunities if you like to sell.

    Cons

    It seems LT gets so caught up in revenue that the drive becomes more about the sales # than the potential life changing outcome. Lack of consistency and lack of great leadership is causing many to leave the company. Some get promoted too fast and egos take over. If you are married with kids, it is hard to have a work life balance and make a decent living. Your budgets are determined by past performance so you are ALWAYS expected to do more. Hero 1 month, villain another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to the CEO - Not all the AD's and Regional Leads are aligned. That filters down to the front line as a huge dysfunction. You are growing too fast and your NPS will show it over the next 9 to 18 months. Additionally there are so many transfers and promotions out to other regions that this becomes even more apparent. Take better care of your people. Learn how deliver clear expectations and coach accordingly. You give up on tenured team members way to fast. Clearly not the premier employer you once were.

    Pros

    There are a lot of possibilities and abilities to advance within this company. A great feel within the club and wonderful team members to work with.

    Many inconsistencies with training and policies. Much of this and other challenges do come along with being such a large company.

    Pros

    Co-workers were great. Working in a facility that is always clean. Good benefits. Time off is usually easy to come by

    Cons

    Management could care less about employees that are not in their department. There is no cohesion between different departments

    I worked at Life Time Fitness

    Pros

    The company encourages a healthy way of life, offers many educational tools to team members and members. As an employee (depending on your department), lots of training is offered that sets you up for success in your position and possibly future professional endeavors.

    Cons

    Company branding policies left very little room for individual creativity, sales expectations always raised upon hitting goal and therefore never satisfied. Very little work/life balance... taking time off puts you at risk of not achieving goals or objectives.
