    I worked at Life Time Fitness

    Pros

    Busy club with lots of turnover providing excellent opportunities to get client[s]. If you hustle!!!!

    Long hours, and it does take time to build yourself up. But keep at it and you will succeed.

  6. I have to check a star to place a review, however the company does not deserve a single star. The job is a joke.

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

    Pros

    There are none, good luck.

    Cons

    $10 per hour. You dont get moved to commission for months. They lie lie lie and con. You have to sell their below average pricy products and sell sessions to get moved to commission. Be aware you are an "employee" however you are charged a service fee for each session to "cover the cost of products used". Last time I checked an "employee" status according to the IRS is one who is provided with supplies. Take a look for yourself employee vs independent contractor status. If a client comes in with a discount card, that % discount comes out of YOUR pay not their net. The company runs these every week so expect to get squeezed out of the pay you were promised from the get go. Also expected the hire on process to take 3 months. In this time 3-4 different managers will instruct you to do it 3-4 different ways all saying the other is wrong. Expect to run around like a chicken with its head cut off, get frustrated and irritated. Expect to have 3-4 managers, expect one to leave in the hiring process, expect the rest to not agree on anything. Expect to be forcibly "volunteered" to work on your day off, if you dont you are not a team player and expect to get fired. Expect to cross out any new year's day plans or new year's eve plans as you manager is going to text you new years eve at 10pm to inform you of your 4 day volunteering begining new years day for their yearly event. Expect to be presured to puchase a $475 dollar training package during hire on, be aware you dont have to. You can if you chooses to when you choose to. You are trained from the moment you meet a client to sell sell sell if you dont you are not performing well. Bottom line, you are trained to see every client as a dollar sign first. As a therapist that should be enough not to mention the rest. Far warning investigate your employer before you settle on unfair unethical practices. There is plenty more but I believe I am sick to my stomach remembering my experience and would like to not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe learn management skills first.

    Pros

    There are a lot of possibilities and abilities to advance within this company. A great feel within the club and wonderful team members to work with.

    Cons

    Many inconsistencies with training and policies. Much of this and other challenges do come along with being such a large company.

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness

    Pros

    Free gym membership, working with people, learning what it entails to be a janitor.

    Cons

    Pay, work/life balance, uneducated co workers, not where you want to work for the rest of your life, let alone more than a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to hire the best employees that fit your mission and vision mold (like the way you have people memorize the mission and vision), make sure they aren't bluffing. The co workers I work with do not do a good job at all. This is because for every great employee the department head hires, there are 5 employees that do not even do the bare minimum. Pay us according to our workload, which is by far the biggest out of all the departments.

    Pros

    Co-workers were great. Working in a facility that is always clean. Good benefits. Time off is usually easy to come by

    Cons

    Management could care less about employees that are not in their department. There is no cohesion between different departments

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness

    Pros

    Free memberships, decent discounts, some teammates were very positive and great to work with.

    Cons

    Overly corporate environment, which was unnecessarily cold. Manager did not like to teach, was poor at teaching, and incredibly harsh when team members made a mistake to the point of being shocking. Also, Life Time University was ridiculous and an utter waste of time.

    The scheduling was bi-polar at best. Nothing was reliable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to educate and teach, not degrade and talk down to your employees. Learn to lead by example. SMILE, and don't talk about your employees behind their backs. We all find out about it.
