No opinion of CEO

I worked at Equinox Fitness full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Decent assistance with client acquisition, excellent exposure to certification opportunities, access to a five-star gym, and the occasional fringe benefits that come with working for a large corporation (i.e. company discounts, shoe deals, etc.)

Cons

Little to no job stability or company loyalty. Undesirable schedule and inconsistent client flow.

Advice to Management

A more regulated approach to training new-hires. A better system of matching clients to trainers. More rewards for maintaining stability with commission.

    People work for people, managing by using fear driven tactics is not good management!

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

    Pros

    Nice gym... That's about it!

    Cons

    Employees for starters are mostly elitist like the rich and mostly white customers and are very high schoolish at that. So many cliques. The employee turn-around is bad at this place. I've never seen so many people leave, quit or fired. I've always seen a new employee every week, every other week, every month. The maintenance department has it worse than any other if you ask me. They are treated like lower class citizens and most of the people who work in maintenance are non-speaking citizens. They work you like a hebrew slave while most of the other people like the shop keep, cafe and even the front desk people are standing there chatting away while getting paid to do absolutely nothing. It's good to know that people get paid to do nothing there while the maintenance crew are working their butt off! The pay is also bad with the amount of work that has to be done. Upper management are just pathetic just to put it mildly. If you want a career at this place, you better look elsewhere 'cause you're pretty much SOL in the end when they toss you out in the streets.

    Advice to Management

    There is none, because Equinox will find a way to get rid of them! C'est la vie!
