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

Pros

Equinox attracts really stellar people. I worked as a massage therapist in the spa, but made friends in every department. It really felt like a tight-knit, loving family. We really took care of each other. Even many of the members felt like a part of the family. Plus, the free gym membership and yoga/fitness classes can't be beat...and there's so much eye candy! I'd pay for an Eq membership.

Cons

Management is the worst. Our club was a revolving door, managers coming and going every few months. It takes ages for anything to get done. My pay was late once due to a payroll error and it took them almost a week to fix- zero sense of urgency when it comes to taking care of their people. Very little employee appreciation = very high dissatisfaction and turn over.

Advice to Management

You're people matter. Act like it.

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

    Pros

    great place to workout but not to work

    Cons

    too long hours for so little pay. Day where there were no clients I didn't make a dime but still had to give free chair massages to create clientele! This was not my own business to build but they treated me like I was a work dog without care for my wellbeing.

    Advice to Management

    take better care of your employees .. and upper management create a baseline where the massage therapist make minimume wage when they don't have a client that day NOT just in an over view of what's grater. TO work without pay doesn't work!

    I worked at Equinox Fitness full-time

    Pros

    Encouraging atmosphere
    Above average pay
    Rich members

    Cons

    Management is inexperienced and childish.
    The education they provide is not everything they say it is it is poor.
    The turnover at the front desk and maintenance is due to terrible pay!
    If management does not will not communicate with staff the members suffer.
    If a "trainer" has injured themselves they are not and never will be a true trainer. If smart enough to train then smart enough to share. If not get out of the business. Fads are not training they are exercise at best.
    A true trainer must have competed at a high level, nationals or above, and never been injured.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better at the front desk and in maintenance.
