    Pros

    I can say that B Fitness is really a good place to work for. I think that overall the company offers a decent work environment, with very good benefits, fair compensation and vacation time, as well as good coworkers and a fairly supportive management team.

    I think the work environment is pretty good because most of the time I have meaningful work with clear expectations from management. Also, it seems like B Fitness provides clean working facilities that are generally safe and give me most of the needed resources to do my job. By in large, this is mostly stable work environment, but there is some turnover. Also, I feel like I have reasonable job security.

    Cons

    B Fitness provides solid company benefits like some paid time off and sick leave, some medical and dental insurance, as well as a some other employee programs. I feel like the company takes decent care of their employees and their general well being.

    I can say that both my coworkers and the management team are good at B Fitness. There is a decent sense of fairness in the company and the employees are mostly treated with respect. Management is professional and good at giving frequent feedback and work hard to foster a sense of team.

    B Fitness is a good company to work for and I would recommend it.

    Advice to Management

    None, I think they do a great job. It would just be nice if they were more flexible.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bannatyne Fitness (Manchester, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The whole process was very unprofessional. They called me and confused me with another candidate, and then, at the end, of the first phone called they asked me to bring my level 1 and level 2 certifications at the interview, although it was clear from the personal statement in my CV that I only had a level 3 qualification as well as level 7. They asked me to do deep tissue for the trade test, although in my cover letter it was clearly specified what types of massage I knew and deep tissue was not among those. I came from another city for that interview, I did copies of all documents they required me to do, including passport and national insurance number, and they have not even bothered to give me a response after the interview, even if was a negative one. Very unprofessional!
