      I have been working at Blink Fitness part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Free gym membership, advancement within the company

      Cons

      very low pay rate for what is required for you to do (front desk/ assistant club managers) , no benefits, not guaranteed a set amount of hrs due to company budget change every so often, working on holidays (gym is open everyday of the year), rude members, on your feet 7+ hrs a day.

      Advice to Management

      Employees would stay if the pay rate was higher.

      I have been working at Blink Fitness part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Great place to connect with friendly members and improve customer service skills.

      Cons

      There are way too many expectations and responsibilities held on Front Desk Associates just for minimum wage. We are expected to stock inventory, contribute to maintenance heavily such as scrubbing toilets and walls (although there we have maintenance workers already, greet every member every two seconds, tend to member issues because there is no customer service number or available corporate number. The random monthly...

      Advice to Management

      There needs to be a corporate number! The obvious and patronizing gap between management and associates needs to come to an end.

      Pay is low.. McDonalds employees make more Have to do double duties, Front Desk and Maintenance

      Advice to Management

      Pros

      It is a company where you invest in the betterment of others. There is somewhat of an opportunity for growth.

      Cons

      Low pay, they treat their members better than they treat their employees, constant policy changes, over worked employees. Turn over is horrible. Expectations are at times very unrealistic. Employees must work at times under terrible conditions.

      Advice to Management

      Get it together. You have lost good dedicated employees that truly loved the company.

      I worked at Blink Fitness full-time

      Pros

      Friendly staff. Friendly members (depending on the location). You can workout for free (off the clock).

      Cons

      Low pay. The schedule always changes. So don't expect much of a life. They change management more than people change their underwear. Everyone is replaceable. You can't put your best foot forward if management is always being replace(fired/quit) every 3-5months. Good luck on trying to get sick days. They will make sure you don't earn any sick hours. Full time employees got...

      Advice to Management

      Stop expecting the staff to do so much when you give close to nothing in return.Stop hiring managers that don't know how to mange. Do your research before giving outside people the job. Don't think because they've worked in another gym that this will help this company. Start really appreciating your staff in a genuine way. Stop the fake/sarcastic bs. Your employees see through it and it's not appreciated. The front desk/maintenance...
