I have been working at LA Fitness full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Coworkers are nice and helpful

Cons

Hours: 9 to 10 hour shifts with a mandatory 1 hour break.
Weekends: working both weekend days or at the least 1 so kiss your social life good bye.
Marketing: You have to do all of your own marketing with no help from the managers.
Scheduling: it's like pulling teeth and frowned upon to request off for a family function or vacation.
Upward movement: is promised if a hard worker, but being a weekend manager works 12 hour shifts Friday Saturday and Sunday's with only one day a week off!!!!
Sales tactics: Sales tactics are beyond heartless. They tell you to sell the gym for what its worth! $149.99 one time initiation fee and $29.99 a month isn't worth any gym when there is a similar plan with a $25 intimation fee and a $29.99 a month is a better deal. I feel like we are stealing from the members constantly.

Advice to Management

Be realistic with expectations. Not everyone is drinking the koolaid.

    I have been working at LA Fitness full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People are great. You can get people to take your classes so you are not tied down if you want to take a few days off or need to vacation. The facility is very nice and usually I can work at a gym close by my house. You can take your kids with you to the gym, free daycare is great.

    Cons

    The pay is not as high as other gyms. Typically the ceiling is $25 regardless of time with the gym, time in the industry or certifications.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay for instructors. Provide free membership to immediate family members.
