    I worked at Life Time Fitness part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked for Lifetime for over 2 years in three different departments as well as three different locations. I personally really enjoyed being able to move up from folding towels to front desk, then on to member services in a short amount of time. Free membership and fairly good spa/cafe discounts. I loved my co-workers. All-staff club meetings were fun and got all the departments to get to know each other.

    Cons

    Very under-paid for the extremely high expectations put on employees, and most managers are way too egotistical. Can't keep employee retention and have terrible turnover rates in every single department... mostly due to overworked staff with not enough pay. Can get political, and I've seem people get screwed over for no reason.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better! They work hard and so many people love and care for this company. You will have longer lasting employees if you show them you appreciate their work.

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness part-time

    Pros

    The Pros of working here would be getting a free membership and having a pretty laid back job.

    Cons

    The cons of working here would be never getting any recognition or pay raises ever and seeing the same members over and over every day.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees raises, I have worked here for more than 2 years along with other people that have been here even longer and no one ever get any kind of raise, because there is not any room in the budget.....

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

    Pros

    The best part of the job is the benefit of being to use a premium athletic facility free of charge because you are an employee!

    Cons

    Its sometimes difficult to ask someone to cover your shift. It would be better to have a bank of people that don't mind being called on short notice. It does pay a very low wage.

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Free membership -Growth and development training is available for those who want it, stability in position for those who are content with their level. -CEO has an amazing vision for the company and it's employees

    Cons

    -Underpaid for the amount/quality of work that is expected -Little opportunity for advancement, management will sell you a great sounding career path, however you'll need to take everything with a grain of salt. -Zero work/life balance for middle management, upper management pawn work off like it's a disease. -Despite their promise to hire the best, incompetence and laziness filter up rather easily. -Tight budgets set by corporate office don't allow managers the ability to better staff their departments.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your employees, pay them what they're worth, and you'll see amazing growth. Be more selective in your hiring process for upper management, and loosen up your budgets a bit. Focus more on retaining and developing the talent you have, and less on the bottom line.
