    Current Employee - Front Desk Associate in New York, NY

    I have been working at New York Sports Club part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Free gym membership and a chance to stay healthy and fit.. That is about it. Not much more. Lucky if hired where there is decent management.

    Cons

    I had a job interview at 86th Street with Manuel Valdez. After a long interview and being asked many questions, I was told by Mr. Valdez that things had changed since we spoke on the phone and that the position was not available. He told me this AFTER the interview was over. The way he led the interview led me to belief that I was a good candidate for the job. I think he used me and this interview process to train a new manager who he asked to join the interview. BAD BUSINESS ETHICS!

    This happened towards the end of last year and I was not going to bother with a review, but the unfairness of it all would not leave my mind. Thought it took me this long, I am glad to get it off my chest. I’m glad if I can prevent others from wasting their earnest time and effort in their job search ventures. DO NOT bother with New York Sports Club. Put your effort and valuable time elsewhere!!

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

    Pros

    Good location, nice facility, great co-workers, nice members. The parking was a bit if a nuisance and the company would not pay for anyone under manager status.

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours especially during close-outs, before I quit they had added a 3rd monthly closeout which was ridiculous. I also disliked having to constantly go to surrounding businesses and hand out flyers. Very demeaning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take it easy on your constant call drives and long hours. The pressure to hit everyday is what drove me away. We were never commended on what we did for the previous month if we didn't hit our goal. A lot it time, effort and energy go into every dollar your staff brings in. Remember that.

    Former Employee - Front Desk Associate in New York, NY

    I worked at New York Sports Club part-time (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.

    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.
