    You 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

    Former Employee - Kids Activities Team Member in Skokie, IL

    I worked at Life Time Fitness part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free membership
    Athletic and fitness-based attitude
    Beautiful health club

    Cons

    Awful 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 ManagementAdvice

    You 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.
