    Pros

    Opportunity, growth within the company. Great place to work if you are unsure what you want to do in life.

    Cons

    Pay isn't so great for lower management. Feels like you do to much for so little.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing you guys are great.

    I have been working at 24 Hour Fitness full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Clean facilities, managers are ok and good opportunities.

    Cons

    All of a sudden the company has turned into a military combat zone and also into Oprah of the book club. The company is telling all associates they need to read a book which is a far right book which are written by individuals who blame Pres. Obama for everything. The new CEO is an absolute joke and should go find a job as an librarian or something.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the business and sale gym memberships. It is a very simple business plan and not very hard to do. No reason to complicate it with pro-military environment which creates a hostile work place. This is not the military and if associates wanted to join, they would have. We are in peace time at the work place!

    Pros

    if you're any type of a person who values a healthy lifestyle, and/or enjoys helping others to better themselves... 24 is the place for you! Amazing healthy and fun work environment, tons of benefits, and you're working for a company that truly does good for the community. Also, new ownership is fully invested in long term success of the company, which has and continues to create plenty of growth opportunities for team members... i would recommend to just get your foot in the door even if the position is not exactly what you're looking for, this company is on track to tons of growth.

    Cons

    You may get addicted to fitness.

    I worked at 24 Hour Fitness part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun job, cute kids, great co-workers, flexible schedules, and a relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Low pay, lots of management, rules, and schedule changes.

    Advice to Management

    Try to not move around mangers as much, it puts off employees when the rules and regulations always change.
