    Pros

    The gym was a very friendly work environment, the staff was extremely helpful throughout the training process. Also, Planet Fitness created a team working atmosphere.

    Cons

    There was little flexibility in the scheduling. During large promotions the gym was under-staffed. management did not pay much attention to ensuring that tasks and responsibilities were delegated equally.

    Pros

    Planet Fitness good friendly work place, free membership, good clients.

    Cons

    management has it's favorites, there was a lot of clicks there between the staff, staff stole from the company and when you reported it to the corporation they get upset that you tell (whistle blowing).

    Advice to Management

    OPEN YOUR EYE'S and see what staff members are the workers and who are the slackers. Take suggestions more serious and stop the favoritism and the clicks.
