    Long hours with minimal pay


  2. Poor example for a fitness facility where women may wish to improve their well being - filthy, unsanitary facilities!

    Pros

    Location is convenient - not many other positives

    Cons

    Poor management, poor leadership and very immature professionalism.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership starts at the top - this lack of leadership is obviously the major issue!


  3. Underpaid, over worked!

    Pros

    Free gym membership and some of the trainers/instructors were really nice people.

    Cons

    This was the worst job I have ever had! When hired I was told I would get weekly bonuses if I made my goals, as well as additional bonuses on weekend days...never happened. I never once received a bonus, and my commission was either wrong, a month late, or just not present on my check at all. Management will tell you anything to appease you and also has no problem lying to get someone to get then to buy a membership. The environment is full of gossip, greedy employees, and shady management. Miserable employer!

    Advice to Management

    Get some honesty, integrity, and treat your members and employees with respect.

    Pros

    Free membership to the gym, but I felt the quantity of equipment and QUALITY were sub standard to the gym I previously used. Many of the machines wobble or "click". The gym has been newly painted

    Cons

    1. Quality of equipment is lacking compared to other local fitness facilities and there is not enough weight. The smith machine (there is only one) is in the personal training area, so many people don't feel welcome to use it. 2. Manager encouraged employees to "make something up" or "tell them anything" to get them to sign up. 3. Schedule for the week often is not ready until the end of the first day it is for. 4. Incentives or bonuses earned are not always paid as promised, and often it takes over a month to get them "approved". One employee is often left alone in the daycare with 20+ children especially on Zumba night (Monday)

    Advice to Management

    You need new management. Care for your members. I mean care for them by worrying about having equipment that doesn't wobble of click or thump before you worry about new paint.


  6. Shapes will go out of business really soon at this rate.

    Pros

    If you are good at Sales and you understand how everything works, you could make money.

    The members.

    Cons

    All women, All drama. Constant bad talking about other employees and mostly members.

    Hostile working environment. Not everyone will like you.

    The manager gets most the sales, and will take your sale excluding you out of the 50/50 commission. (when you make a sale but they came on some else guest pass, you and that other person split the commission.) They can sabotage that by firing you "just because".

    Do not trust ANYONE you work with. They will NOT help you, they will be working against you.

    "They will try to make you quit, if they don't like you."(said a manager)

    Lack of fitness skills among employees. (most employees are not in "shape" either)

    Advice to Management

    Speaking on behalf of several goodhearted employees. Your business needs a lot of work. It was by far the worst experience.. There is no BUSINESS ETIQUETTE amongst your employees and managers. Your employees NEED to be trained in Nutrition and Fitness or have some type of education background. You SHOULD NEVER health advice to other members if you have ZERO knowledge on this. It is very unfair to your future customers and members.

    Pros

    The variety of women you get to meet.

    Cons

    You just don't know where you stand.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are not all the same. When you realize you have someone who works hard and gives their best, there has to be a way to recognize this individual. What does it take to review their salary and consider giving them a raise? A posted recognition of several employees' outstanding work as a group is not enough. Singling the employee out and letting them know that they are appreciated would be better.
