    Hard work, low pay, OK benefits

    Life Cafe Pool Side Team Member (Former Employee) Skokie, IL

    ProsFree access to top of the line gym

    ConsYou are used to your managers disposal, some duties and tasks that are not listed in the job description are handed out, customers are allowed to walk all over you, you are expected to put the company way before yourself

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensate your employees more

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Stated goals do not match work experience

    Kids Activities Team Member (Former Employee) Skokie, IL

    ProsFree membership
    Athletic and fitness-based attitude
    Beautiful health club

    ConsAwful scheduling- often asked to go home early, work late, or come in as a substitute
    Low pay for the tier of health club, and little room for promotion
    Supervisors are disorganized and generally unhelpful

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou claim to "promote from within"- completely rehiring staff and not even giving a basic raise to returning staff does not seem to follow your creed. Also, the GMs rarely seem to provide any oversight to their managers, which leads to inefficiencies.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
