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

Pros

Sexy, fun environment with a great clientele and a commitment to truly be the best in the business

Cons

Poor work life balance especially at the end of the month when many employees are required to work 3-4 12+hour days. Compensation isn't always in line with amount of work and effort provided by employees. Not bad, but maybe not always as good as it should be for hours worked.

Advice to Management

Need to continue to find a way to prevent turn over in employee base, specifically in personal training staff and sales team and in club personal. Corporate retention is much stronger. There's a reason for that.

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

    Pros

    The only pros about Equinox is their clubs are gorgeous! However beware, as an employee there are so many restrictions that you can almost never use them unless you have a job where you can actually work out in the middle of the day. Since Equinox doesn't hire enough people per department this was practically an impossibility for me.

    Cons

    NO work life balance. You don't even get federal holidays off. The training and on-boarding experience is terrible. There was little to none in my department. Turnover is higher than I have ever seen at a corporate level and either Equinox is aware of the root of the problem and doesn't care or plans to continue the revolving door. I have never worked for a worse company. Unless you are desperate for a job my advice it to stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Care as much as the "employee experience" as you do your beloved member experience. Without your employees you can't effectively operate. Treat them better so they all don't leave.
