    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 Management

    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.

  6. The only good thing about it was the free membership

    I worked at Life Time Fitness

    Pros

    Free membership
    Networking with members
    Co-workers
    Free membership

    Nice facility

    Cons

    Repetitive cleaning
    No formal on-boarding/training process
    No training process for advancement
    Shady practices
    No PTO

    Advice to Management

    Why does your district/regional manager go around asking people to recite the mission statement on spot? Just an odd practice

    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.

  8. Not a healthy way of life for anyone

    Pros

    Free membership, nice people, that's it

    Cons

    Horrible place to work. Under paid and everyone stabs each other in the back. Corporate could care less about you and the CEO...self centered, uncaring, hypocrite

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of upper management and replace with people who know what they're doing, as well as care about team members. Pay needs to be elevated at all club levels

    It is tough to always rise to the expectations with no recognition

    The free Membership and staff works in unison

    Cons

    Demand perfection but pay is low.

  10. On the surface, LTF seems to be the ONLY place to train

    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 Management

    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.

    Great members, membership, poor benefits and pay is too low.

    Pros

    The company really focuses on a healthy lifestyle and sells it to the members and staff. Spends $$ on equipment and facility. Free membership and option to flexible schedule.

    Cons

    No paid time-off and discourages unpaid time-off. Always asked to work. Leadership is okay, not great. Compensation= horrible. Any other job pays more and will ask less than this place. Long hours. Poor pay. No benefits. No personal growth. Amount of labor increases with "proposed ideas," but not reflected in the pay.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more if you decide to ask more from them. This includes picking trash up off the clock and subbing for no-shows.
