Great people -- wonderful family environment at the club

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

    Pros

    - Great Facilities
    - Interesting benefits

    Cons

    - Zero Opportunity to grow
    - Management is extremely disconnected from staff.
    - Pay rate doesnt equate to work load
    - Disorganized
    - Seniority means absolutely nothing.
    - Management is very unprofessional
    - You cant workout at other locations unless your management
    - Management is almost never present
    - Management (CEO Harvey Spevak) is unprofessional at times

    Advice to Management

    Improve the pay rate, stop trying to keep employees so separated, higher better managers for your locations, make the managers communicate with the front desk associates more since the front desk is the heart of the clubs.

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

    Pros

    The gym was always clean and had nice, new equipment. It also had a great view of the ocean. That's it though.

    Cons

    They pay their employees nothing and make heaps of money. Terrible management that changes every other month. The members of the gym are mostly very snobby and narcissistic. Some gym member made up a story about me slamming the gym equipment and reported it to management in hopes they would replace that machine because "your employee said it too." Management pulled me into the office and proceeded to write me up without hearing my side of things & believing the member. I was a trainer and teacher there. Equinox also held Friday mixers where they invited the gym members to hang out and listen to a D.J and have a bartender mix them alcoholic drinks. We were encouraged to attend these events to hand out and party with clients. I'm a trainer. Why would I encourage drinking to get clients and any smart business person knows mixing business, pleasure and alcohol is just idiotic!They are 100% money driven and greedy. Add them to the evil corporate company list!

    Advice to Management

    Hire REAL trainers [not people you found out of high school who know nothing about health & fitness] and pay them what they are worth.
