    Pros

    You get a free membership to one of the best health clubs available.

    Work with healthy, active, positive people.

    Cons

    Pay for part-time employees in most positions is minimum wage when the work is worth much more.

    Some managers can be too controlling

    Advice to Management

    Continue to offer benefits like free gym membership to employees. Consider making the minimum pay for employees at least above the minimum wage.

    Pros

    Overall great facility, plenty of job opportunities and ability to move around within the company. Multiple locations if wanting to transfer

    Cons

    Unfortunately they do not pay most of their employees well considering the amount of work that they do. This is true for even higher up positions as well.

    Pros

    It really is a great place to workout: wide variety of machines and equipment, very well kept locker rooms and towel service.

    Cons

    Departments don't work together because each one has it's own priorities. Management has extremely high expectations and gives next to nothing in return. They work you like a dog when they need you and send you home if payroll is too high (regardless of the need to adequately provide for members or for you to make money). They seem to feel that a free membership is supposed to make up for that. Employees are expected to work multiple major holidays and mandatory "volunteering" is implemented when they have events going on. Ultimately, management doesn't care about job satisfaction or the of well being of it's employees. It just sees them as little worker bees that assist in making them more money.

    Advice to Management

    They need to take more pride in their employees, ALL of them. Also, what kind of company organizes a 5k race and keeps the proceeds from the registration fees instead of donating it to a charity? This company does.

    Pros

    Great people. Awesome environment. Lots of room for growth. engourages a healthy lifestyle. Many departments to suit your expertise. In-house certification for certain feilds.

    Cons

    Feels a bit like "drinking the kool-aid" but hey, thats a corporation for you.

    Upper management has little contact with entry level employees.

    Sales department feels a bit "phony".

    compensation is a bit low for most departments.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to employee retention as much as customer retention to boost overall morale, resulting in higher NPS scores and club profits.

    Raise compensation for most positions to make the feild more desirable, resulting in a lower turn-over rate.

    Implement a team reward system for all departments.

    Run the club less like a corporate office and more like an inviting health club.

    Pros

    If you like kids and like working out and don't need a job to pay bills or have health insurance. Free gym membership.

    Cons

    They make you buy their way over priced shirts as your uniform. They are cheaply made and wear out quickly, no health insurance, terrible pay. They pay so poorly for the amount of work required and are really hypocritical about the "healthy way of life" by not even paying a living wage and giving health benefits. The hours are really sporadic and if they don't need you, they just send you home even if you were scheduled to work longer. No one can make a living like that. Very high rate of turnover so things are always a little chaotic. Male workers were paid better than female workers for the same job and experience. I am a teacher with state certification and a male co-worker, still in college, made a dollar more than me to teach the same class.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people better, give them steady hours and health benefits so that you can have a higher quality employee and save on turnover costs.
