I have been working at Equinox Fitness part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

same as any other gym

Cons

not really much to complain about from a group fitness standpoint- although I used to work here as a personal trainer and there is plenty to complain about on that side

Advice to Management

so far so good

    I worked at Equinox Fitness part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Reputable company that caters to an upper scale of clientele. Decent system is in place as far as the process to turn potential clients into clients.

    Cons

    Floor hours are the worst time ever. Walking around for 4 hours handing out towels and giving out technique pointers to people who don't want to hear it didn't go so well with me .

    I have been working at Equinox Fitness full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free gym membership and clean place to work out.

    Cons

    Everything else!
    -They treat employees so poorly. When i worked there from 2006-2008, they had at least two pending lawsuits from former employees.
    The pay for front desk is $8 and hour. They do not care about you one bit. Their members are absolutely everything to them. Getting more memberships and pleasing their members. You work long hours, no days off (open 365) and the standard of excellence is super high. They test you, train you, and "shop" you (having higher ups call you pretending to be a client to see what you say).

    They have high left rates. Someone is always coming in and stealing and it's up to the front desk to be perfect and fight crime, check 1,000 people in, don't keep a potential member on hold for over 4 seconds and take spa appoints. Don't mess up because they are all watching.

    Beware, you will get fired EASILY. They have the highest turn-over I've ever seen in a company. Their standards are high and if you fail to meet them, you're out! My guess is that if they put more time into employees and treated them better, they would perform better over time. Almost everyone I knew the 2+ years I worked there got fired between 2 weeks to 3 months. I ended up resigning as I couldn't take the stress anymore.

    Good luck if you're applying for this job. You must be desperate.

    Advice to Management

    They'll never read this because they don't care about their employees so what's the point?
