    Pros

    Large Client pool to work with and recruit. Nice facilities. Equipment is maintained.

    Cons

    Totally commission and draw. Poor managers who like pass leads for training to trainers who did not have their certifications.

    Advice to Management

    Review Draw system. The additional roles responsibilities that the company wants trainers to do on the floor requires at minimum a base salary that there is no idea that you are renting space for a draw as a contractor. Resort mentality for gyms is not going to be realistic in the future.

    Pros

    Beautiful facility. Free access to use gym/take classes. Discounts at spa/cafe. Management very friendly and helpful. Supportive environment. Fun atmosphere. A joy to work there.

    Cons

    Can be unorganized. Raises are difficult to get approved. Lots of company policy quizzes/video webinars. For the caliber of club, pay is so-so.

    Advice to Management

    More support in helping employers grow and build their career.

    Pros

    Free membership. The clothing we got to wear was more relaxed than a lot of salons. It wasn't all black.

    Cons

    Horrible management. Very unorganized and unprofessional. The stylist team was extremely clique-y. Went to the point of harassing new employees to encourage them to quit. To top it off there is no break room, you have to walk through people doing cardio to get to the break room for the entire gym. The front desk is constantly screwing up people's schedules. It was a horrible experience and the atmosphere does not promote creativity. The pay was horrible and I caught the management in multiple lies. Manipulative. The stylists are also not knowledgeable in their coloring skills, nor are they up to date on styles. Do not work here...

    Advice to Management

    Get new management. The current manager as of jan. 2015 is not a team player, she does not know how to communicate nor can she even make a correct order for retail and back bar products. She procrastinates and is not efficient. She tries to manipulate her employees to make numbers at the expense of the clients and employees as people. I get the need to run a buisness, but you can't treat people like crap and have a good team, and a good buisness. It goes hand in hand. new management immediately. The spa will run into the ground otherwise.

    Pros

    Lifegaurding in general is great, you get a free membership

    Cons

    you're more of a hospitality worker than an actual lifegaurd

    Advice to Management

    treat the pool area as an actual pool

    The staff hours should be less, hire more employees and break-up the times to work, make sure all employees are contributing to the work

    Pros

    Free membership, great team members

    Cons

    Management is out of touch,things change with little notice to members, unclean facility.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue! Get out of your office and realize what is not going on around you. The place is a mess your team members are unhappy. Two many managers in a position they should not be in.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere that encourages a healthy lifestyle. You wear uniform workout clothes to work. Free gym memberships. Employees working with children can bring their own if they are over the age of one year.

    Cons

    The pay isn't phenominal, but the perks are nice!

    Pros

    Very professional environment. All of the people you work with are cut from the same cloth out going loving and truly empathetic.

    Cons

    Now the members can be very particular about what they want when it comes to their experience at Life Time and may be very very rude at times do not take it to heart they are just angry and probably do not mean it. If you ask for something make sure it is in writing or it will not happen. Expect to be alone staring at a wall for the most part shifts may feel like forever if you get your job done quickly so time your tasks accordingly.

    Pros

    Great hours, no grease, no drunk guests... Great team of Department Heads.

    Cons

    Your staff is 80% minimum wage high school kids. The majority do not want to work and have no work ethic. Overly corporate. The corporation makes the job 20 times harder than it needs to be. It's a Café... Let an experienced Manager do their job.
