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

    Pros

    Working with people that want to work together, working with clients and helping them get better, and getting to workout for free.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    You should promote Leon Aguilar to be in charge of multiple locations. I have never worked under a more supportive, motivating, and knowledgeable GM.

  3. "Location"

    Current Employee - Assistant General Manager
    Current Employee - Assistant General Manager

    Pros

    If you are in a good location it is a good job. Can be boring, but make sure you are making sales and you will be fine.

    Cons

    You are paid a base salary plus commission on your sales. So, if you are having a hard time selling paychecks will suffer.

    I have been working at Charter Fitness full-time

    Pros

    Free gym membership
    Easy to get to part time manager
    Flexible part time hours

    Cons

    Family/friend owned. Difficult to get to GM and near impossible to go above GM. Unrealistic goals for what the company offers. Extremely poor upper management save for a select couple people. Absolutely terrible upper sales department.

    Advice to Management

    Change your upper management and whoever is in charge of the sales and financial department.

    Pros

    Great place to work with awesome regulars.

    A lot more cleaning than actually being at the front desk.

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

    Pros

    They start off by giving you hours and clients so you can start with a foundation and make you think that you can move up in the company at anytime

    Cons

    No support after the first month and no help with hours, clients, information or management advice. Very suprised how there company is still doing so well when only 1 or 2 trainers at a faciliy are doing good.

    Advice to Management

    Comminunicate better with employees and future prospects and customers. DO better with your staff and try not to just look cool since your actually looking foolish in the end.

    Pros

    Most locations have good managers. Independence.

    Cons

    Low ceiling for growth, does not reward innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in good trainers, allow them to train and not focus on sales.
