      Pros

      I worked as a Kids Club Attendant, Service Representative, and KC Supervisor. This company likes to promote within their club if you are willing to work up to the position. There is a lot of inter-department connectivity. You get to know not only the members but also your coworkers which makes you feel like you are joining a team.family.

      Cons

      You don't always get promoted with in. There isn't a lot of communication between management. Corporate makes every little thing a major thing therefore holding up processes that could be avoided. The turn-around time is quick but that depends on the person. The pay has never been enough. The gym itself needs new equipment.

      Advice to Management

      Corporately - stop worrying about expanding the business for a couple of years and invest in fixing up or remodeling the locations that you do have. Club management - learn to work together and not apart, set some differences aside and don't thing personal. The club needs more of your attention and less of your attitude.
