    Pros

    The hours are amazing, parents are very involved but not pushy, you receive a free membership, and the training is extensive.

    Cons

    You are really not able to work full time as a swim instructor, unfortunately. It would have been awesome to work 30+ hours but the demand isn't there.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to make commission on the swim lesson sales they make. If employees bring business and the members buy private lessons, the employee should be able to make a percentage of the fee.

    Pros

    A very fun environment and they train you with universal skills that can be use in and out of the water.

    Cons

    There weren't as many hours as I liked for there to be but it did give me a steady source of income.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good environment. Typically most people don't become customers at their previous work places but it's hard to refuse the temptation of going back to Life Time Fitness. The Environment is contagious!

    Pros

    People are friendly and have common interests. It's fun to work with kids and do activities that other fitness centers don't provide.

    Cons

    There didn't seem to be a lot of movement in jobs. Also the hours weren't super flexible but flexible enough

    Advice to Management

    Get more input from employees, even the people in lower jobs. Every opinion helps!


  8. Great Place to Start Training Career

    Pros

    Great People and Great community with the personal training department Wanted you to be successful and aimed to set you up for success

    Cons

    Terrible Pay with potentially long hours Required to charge a lot for an hour session which drives business down Want you to sell anything and everything to people

    Advice to Management

    Let trainers focus on either training or sales. Persoally, i really love the science and history of exercise while others pushed clients through stupid workouts and never really cared about the clients

    Pros

    If used as a stepping stone it's a pretty good place to work.

    Can be clicky and unprofessional at times.

    Professionalism is needed in all departments.
