    Pros

    Good Money if you live at the club. Amazing front line team members. You can meet a ton of new people.

    Cons

    Aside from extremely unrealistic long hours and expectations, minimal initial onboarding/coaching, and "sink or swim" mentality, EXTREMELY poor management. You are treated like you mean nothing to the business. Every manager is emotional and runs their team under a dictatorship, so you are walking on eggshells constantly since you cannot be sure what mood they are in and what might set them off. VERY Corporate America and do not understand the policies and procedures for associate relations in Canada.

    Advice to Management

    Look up Crucial Accountability/Crucial Confrontations/Solutions Focused Coaching and PLEASE consider becoming certified in this. It will help a lot with associate retention and turnover. You are absolutely going to lose all of your decent staff continuing on this path.

    Pros

    Lifetime Networks can be a positive atmosphere. People seem to like working together and have a sense of humor about the programming. The staff coordinates small office parties in an attempt to keep things interesting. The work gets done pretty efficiently.

    Cons

    Definite lack of feedback. I never received feedback about my job performance, even when I asked. My manager didn't really know what I was doing from day to day. There were definite cliques that seemed encouraged by those in management. Overall boring workload with few challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate! There were way too many guessing games about their vision or goals.

    Lifetime offers full time employment with benefits and ongoing education.

    Pros

    Great for students to learn daily skills they will need for when they are living on their own. Not only that there are plenty of activities available for employees to do.

    Cons

    Pay is not much and personal growth plateaus very fast. I would consider this position for someone who is new to the country that has great english skills but not for someone who would like to make this a career.

    Advice to Management

    Have more team building activities as the position is called "Operations team member"
