    I worked at National Fitness Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a job. I've seen many work there for no other reason than to keep a "free" membership.

    Cons

    Management is only concerned about money. They don't care about employees or members. It's all superficial with this company. As long as they can get people to perceive everything is great they'll continue to suck as many members as dry as they can. I worked as a maintenance tech with them for 4 years. They never listened to me about repairs that needed done to the old west club (mainly the roof leaks. And members got hurt because of their unwillingness to properly maintain the building. B-ball and handball courts) or the Alcoa Hwy location (I'm told the roof to The Beach pumphouse finally caved in. And they still haven't repaired it! They ran it the way it is all last summer!)

    I heard so many stories how the CEO had ripped off so many contractors it would make your head swim.

    53 complaints in the last 3 years with this business with the Better Business Bureau report!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is none. I offered advice for 4 years and wasn't listened to.

    I have been working at National Fitness Center full-time

    Pros

    It's nice to work at a gym - no reason not to get your workout in!

    Cons

    Probably the most crooked place I have ever worked for! The system is set up that even if you make your goal in sales they will screw you out of your commissions.

    I have been working at National Fitness Center

    Pros

    Free membership to an impressive facility

    Cons

    terrible management with zero interpersonal skills or concern for the employees or customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    positive reinforcement-it's a good thing. try it. also, micromanaging only reduces morale and productivity and therefore increases turnover
