    I have been working at Life Time Fitness part-time

    Pros

    free gym membership, good coworkers are very relaxed. on occasion boss will bring food to inservices. very relaxed, customers are mainly young families so they're fairly friendly.

    Cons

    very low pay considering how its skilled labor (you need 250 dollars every two years for a certification, necessary to work as a lifeguard) and you will start out earning less money than a cashier at target. very disappointing. boss expects you to sub for others as the only way to get raises. 0 sick days permitted for part time workers and pressured to go even if you may get others sick. almost no opportunities for days off for vacations even for pre arranged vacations. during in services if you mess up, there's very little constructive criticism and most people act very irritated. most of the skills you use, you teach yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    promotions, sick days. having a free membership doesn't negate your need for a break if ill

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness

    Pros

    I work in the child care department, and it is an easy job. You get a Lifetime membership and discounts as well. Flexible schedule

    Cons

    Members can be hard to please. Also, sometimes you are bombarded with children.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The hiring on process is quite disorganized. The training takes a long time and department heads don't communicate clearly what you need to do.

    Pros

    -Free Membership
    - Dynamic Environment
    - Great Supervisor (who genuinely cared)

    Cons

    - If you don't like your colleagues, you will struggle. Most all aspects of the day are spent with others, so you want to make sure you culturally fit in, and enjoy working with those around you.

    Pros

    Great discounts and wonderful membership.

    Cons

    High expectations and tight timelines. Just like every where. So you need to manage it by managing your business and provide detailed plans.

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

    Pros

    The number of members you have access to.
    The opportunities to learn skill sets that are valuable to them and after.

    Cons

    You must work in shifts, weekends, holidays, and extra time 'mid month' and 'end of month'.
    If you move up the ladder, you pay for any failing team members (ask about DRAW).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The interview should be clear about expectations. It is sold that it doesn't happen much that you stay long or every holiday. Once a trainer, when you want to promote them to APTDH, warn them that DRAW means their personal paycheck. And if that PT on your team gets fired, you never get that money back.
