    Pros

    Great company culture. Co-workers genuinely take care of each other and are always trying to deliver world class customer service to members and each other. Perks include gym membership which is a huge bonus to working here (the facility is amazing), as well as access/discounts to lots of other amenities the club offers (physical therapy, fitness classes, health programs, spa/salon services, the list goes on and on).

    Cons

    There are some specific rules that PRO employees have to follow, but these rules are part of what helps PRO present themselves as professional and experts in their given fields as well as present a consistent experience for members across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the employees. PRO does a lot to keep employee benefits costs low and offer great discounts and perks, so I hope that continues! Continue to ensure that employees live the PRO Best culture, which is truly unique and makes for the most upbeat and pleasant work environment I have been a part of.

    Pros

    PRO Sports Club is a wonderful place to work! We have a very unique culture that is a great fit for some and maybe not the best fit for others. Our Founders adopted a number of service practices from Disney so we have some unique rules, but at the end of the day everyone who works here is friendly and always willing to help!

    Cons

    PRO can be a difficult place to advance into a management position if that is a short term career objective.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at proclub are the people that are your fellow employees and the wonderful members that go there.

    Cons

    Customer service industry is still the customer service industry, even as a high end health club. You know what to expect.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and keep envisioning your employees to achieve greatness.

    Pros

    great community, people are awesome, job is easy to do. the members are a lot of fun to interat with. therers tons of awesome equipment. and you get a $150 membership for free!

    Cons

    management can be very disorganized and air headed at times. communitcation between departments does not really exist. departments are battling each other instead of working together for no reason. everyone basically just looks out for themselves

    Advice to Management

    get to know your team better. communication with team and other managers is essential for success. try to stop micromananging and trying to catch your employees doing somethin wrong. praise employees for things done right

    Pros

    The benefits are FANTASTIC! From 401(k) matching to use of the facilities; From trips to Disneyland to compensation for referrals, Pro Sports Club has amazing benefits. It's a family environment for the coworkers. Stay long enough and you will know everyone on a first name basis - coworkers are family.

    Cons

    The communication between the club and it's members seems to have some sort of gap. Members don't understand many policies or why they are implemented in the first place. The club has eliminated a lot of this to the concierges, but in order to succeed in this environment, you must be very knowledgeable about the club ad it's various policies. There is also a lack of parking and members can get quite upset with their inability to use certain equipment/facilities during peak times.

    Advice to Management

    The membership seems to outgrow the facilities. Plans to expand the facilities should continue with plans to expand membership.

    Pros

    Worked here for over two years after graduating college in a couple different departments. Decent pay and steady job during economic downturn, offered opportunity for growth. Club is well-maintained and most employees (cast members) are great to work with. Opportunity to win trips to Disneyland at annual holiday party. Club has been around for a long time and grew along with Microsoft, has many long-term employees who love it.

    Cons

    As with any public-facing environment, along with all of the "good" members and guests came the minority who could be VERY rude and demanding. I also wasn't a fan of the mandatory uniforms, giant name tags, and strict grooming requirements. It all felt a little old school compared to the generally relaxed atmosphere in the Pacific Northwest. Managers I had were great, but that could vary depending on your department. Didn't offer me the long-term options I was looking for, which is why I ended up taking an offer somewhere else after a couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    The Club could use a little updating and refreshing in terms of the brand to make it seem more relevant and attractive to prospective members. It is very clean, but doesn't feel very contemporary. Also, the strict dress code is kind of ridiculous. Uniforms aren't really necessary in every department!

    Pros

    The Pay is very competitive if not the best in the state, job security, Benefits, and you get to work with very knowledgeable colleagues.

    Cons

    Limited room for growth and opportunity. Advancement as far as compensation is concerned takes time.
