    I worked at Urban Active Fitness part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Job security was good. Unless you didn't show up to work or you failed to do the minimum requirements you would not get fired from this company.

    Cons

    I was expected to take care of situations that were out of control and not a part of my job. As an example I was given a hard time by a manager (not my direct manager) as to why the locker room was not cleaned, when I wasn't even at work during a particular shift.
