    Cons

    weird hours as lone employee, lax management. Working their I felt uncomfortable after a certain point as the only employee. late hours were terrible by myself, people would never leave when its time to close.

    Former Employee - Front Desk Associate in New York, NY

    I worked at New York Sports Club part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As a front desk attendant I saw it all. The number one pro was the free membership. SOME of the relationships that spawned from my time at NYSC is still with me till this day.

    Cons

    It is extremely hard to move up in the company, NYSC makes it seem as if it is easy to move up but it isn't. If you're overweight there's a stigma that you can't possibly help people because of your weight. I have worked at a lot of NYSC and this is not a generalization. THEY DON'T LIKE FAT EMPLOYEES.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully, there has been a massive clean house. Try not to have favoritism amongst the workers and give everyone a chance to move up in the company.

    I worked at New York Sports Club full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    These were some of the reasons why I stayed:
    -free gym membership
    -you work with some great people
    -can be a motivational place to work

    Cons

    I was told when I started that I would have an AGM and a FSM but it wasn't in my gym's budget so I only had a FSM for the whole time that I was employed here.
    -benefits are horrible
    -no work life balance
    -low pay
    -structure and direction of company changed for the worst

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    compensation is not equal to job.

    I have been working at New York Sports Club part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    facilities and equipment are complete

    Cons

    (1) From customer point of view, if you need help or inquiry, your acct manager never call back. (2) from employee point of view, very poor management systems, not organized at all. The scheduling for the worker is nightmare, everything is done manually with lots of errors. Workers show up at work with no schedule, or received a last minute call to request to go to work. (3) Always questioning about the payroll systems, where the amount always seems to lower than the hours that workers work for. There has been rumor that management allocate some of the staff hours to make up the manager's 40 hr/week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    (1) Create a call log or service ticket, and track your client service to ensure to get back to customer.
    (2) time sheet to ensure correct hours are booked
    (3) put the worker schedule calendar on the website so every worker can see them

    I have been working at New York Sports Club full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I started at NYSC as a new trainer looking to find a job I enjoyed - That was 8 years ago. Now, I have fun career as a Fitness manager at a successful club in NYC. I owe great thanks to the learning & development program, and the leadership team the company has developed. Through that my careerI has grown beyond my early expectations. They really do a solid job of setting high expectations but giving you the tools to achieve them. Great team support, financially rewarding, and a quick track to management.

    Cons

    It's really up to you - If you want to be successful they will show you the way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love the learning and development aspect of what we do. Keep on it!

    I worked at New York Sports Club full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None, the excitement that I had once has for this industry was drained from an emotional vampire (TSI). What a shame that this company continues to he away with what it does. I must believe that at some point karma will catch up to them!

    Cons

    Everything; from the lie that is stated in their mission statement. To the lies it feeds it clientele. There is no coaching nor development. TSI does not invest in their employees!
