    I worked at Total Woman Gym and Day Spa part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This is a beautiful, clean woman's gym with fantastic staff and members. Great classes, amazing spa, Overall I loved working here!

    Cons

    Poor management at the location level. A change in management would result in more members and happier staff overall. Too much turnover in all departments due to bad management. Unhappy members and unhappy instructors/personal trainers = lower sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the reviews on Yelp and listen to your members, There is a BIG problem in Alameda!

    Pros

    Free gym membership, discounted massage and facial prices for you and for gift certificates you to purchase. Great training on spa products. Steady scheduling.

    Cons

    Constant changes in management, went through three different Spa Managers, and two General Managers for the gym during two years at Irvine location. Customer complaints can be bothersome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep updating the phone list! It's important to be available when an employee needs you (I'm mean you management)

    Former Employee - Massage Therapist in Woodland Hills, CA
    Former Employee - Massage Therapist in Woodland Hills, CA

    I worked at Total Woman Gym and Day Spa part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Smaller spa with good products, good parking, most employees are quite nice, friendly and professional.

    Cons

    Spa Manager is deceitful, incompetent, lazy, and when she gets free massages she doesn't tip at all, has no idea how to motivate or boost moral, some employees just don't care anymore and don't try too hard to give a good treatment because its just not worth it. Not much training for new treatments. Tips are low most of the time, no benefits, some MT's don't stock the room when shift is complete and leave it messy for the next MT. Spa Manager walks all over the staff and is disrespectful and not fair so you have to watch your commissions. Pay is low. I will not recommend this Spa to anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Spa Manager needs to be trained or replaced. She doesn't uphold the potential of a great Spa experience or treats her employees with respect. There is favoritism. She will fire you if you stick up for yourself or your commissions.

    Pros

    Ability to make commission and bonuses
    Lovely environment
    Complimentary membership
    Great discounts on products and services
    Lots of wonderful staff

    Cons

    Upper management can be mean
    Unfair treatment of staff
    Unrealistic goals and pressure
    Favoritism
    Comparing your club with other clubs and creating competition that is borderline mean

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if you put forth more effort to support you top managers. I know lots of owners of the clubs have come and gone. Hopefully the new management in place know what they are doing and how to treat key staff and empower them.

    Ongoing Management Chaos

    Pros

    Nice women clients to work with

    Cons

    Management is very disorganized and corporate sets unattainable months goals that set the entire location up for stress and failure.

    Hire people with genuine (proven) leadership and managerial backgrounds.

    Pros

    Free gym membership and discounted spa services. Membership Associates receive hourly and commission pay.

    Cons

    This job requires you to build relationships with potential members which is expected, but it's not okay to put your heart and soul into something and not receive recognition, but even worse, a horrible working environment.
    Pay was not always accurate and took over two weeks to correct.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New management needed! Someone who can lead and live by the message we deliver to members.

    Pros

    All women. Spa environment with amenities.

    Cons

    Management does not have the proper knowledge of the jobs in question to properly manage. They do not know contraindications or the realities of the physical demands on the employees. You will be forced to do up to five hours in a row with no break. They expect upgrades and sales of products that have nothing to do with massage. They force you on your unpaid time, when there is no service, to solicit gym members for sales. There is no time for rest whether you are slow or busy. They do not respect your time and make you stay unpaid through the end of your shift even after it is no longer possible to have a service. There is not proper intake procedures to protect against liability and to prevent potential harm to a client. It's hard to do the body work that a client requests or needs because the services are categorized as upgrades with a high price. There is hostility and bullying in order to push sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees and clients as people and not vehicles to meet a monetary goal. Pay employees for work that is required during non-commissioned hours. Update the equipment and listen to the needs of your employees.

    Pros

    Massage is easier because its all women.

    Cons

    Its a Corporation probably would be better to work on a 1099 than a W2

    pay for down time should be better
