I have been working at In-Shape Health Clubs full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Gym membership, work environment, and members

Cons

Membership Counselor (MC) pay structure is below poverty. The information in the “salary tab” on this website is incorrect. They pay $8.00 hourly or commission whichever is more. In-Shape (IS) manipulates the system so they do not have to provide medical benefits to full-time employees by keeping their hours work lower than 40 hrs. Too much work to complete within an 8 hour day if you are producing. Employees will be written up if they do not clock out within 8 hours. Nevertheless, they are expected to work on their “own time” to complete paperwork before they can leave for the day. Otherwise they will be punished by way of getting yelled at or being setup for production failure one way or another the next working day or week. Upper management is never satisfied if a team is doing well, instead they find something else that needs to be improved.

Advice to Management

I can continue with many more cons, but there is a minimum word count. The company itself needs a new up dated corproate business structure. The payroll department needs an overhaul. There is no reason for employees to have to do extra work by keeping personal records and having to prove their sales in order to be paid the correct amount due on each paycheck.

    I worked at In-Shape Health Clubs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    With the company growing so quickly, it's easy to advance. They like to hire internally, so if you work hard, you will have plenty of opportunities.

    Cons

    Like any company, there are politics involved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at In-Shape Health Clubs part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Because you're probably going to be working part-time, you'll have more time at home. And they're willing to work with you if you on your work schedule.

    Cons

    Everyone starts at minimum wage. Even the Leads only make a dollar-per-hour more. Housekeeping is at least a $10/hr job, and Lead is at least $12, but they pay $8 and $9, respectively; and that's only because it's California minimum wage.

    Plus, the company hates following the USERRA (Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Act). They couldn't even fathom how to follow it in regards to promotions. Because of this, there was no upward movement for military members.

    Advice to Management

    Learn USERRA and teach it to your GMs. It's posted right there on the Labor Laws poster.
