Why do Life Time employees quit?

Pros

Good benefit for life time members

Cons

Didn't treat employees as promised, I left my old employer for life time, was promised a start date. On the day before my start day they decided to delay my start date many times and finally the day before my start date they cancelled my position. Didn't even offer anything for the damages they made. Poor management decisions.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees during COVID19 better

How are promotions handled at Life Time?

Pros

A lot of the people I worked alongside and met along the way (mostly the members!) are great people! Free gym membership is a perk but the work life balance is mostly just work, so didn't have much time to use it.

Cons

It was difficult to get time off. The PTO policy is crap, even though they did just add sick time. When I did get PTO I often got calls/texts and was expected to respond to emails, even when out of the country. Work life balance doesn't exist.... Managers often work 6-7 days a week and well over 50-60 hours a week. Since Life Time is open on holidays, managers often work most (if not all) holidays. High expectations, and even when they are met the bar only gets raised higher. This is not to say I shy away from hard work and meeting budgets - I excelled at it. However I rarely was recognized when I was successful, which after years and years got draining. Promotions are rarely based on merit, rather on who has sucked up to the right people.

Advice to Management

Recognize employees for meeting and exceeding goals. Increase PTO and offer holiday pay/ bonuses for working (even for salaried managers). Keep firing the GMs that treat their managers horribly...that's the only thing Life Time has done right.
