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

Pros

The best reason to work in Operations at LA Fitness is the pay. For their education and experience expectations the pay is great! Also building relationships with members is always fulfilling. Last, would be the experience, the responsibilities prepare you for an impressive resume.

Cons

The amount of stress is enormous. Running a business to someone else's expectations is difficult as well as ever changing expectations and measurable metrics.

Advice to Management

I would say to solidify standards. For example, with member issues there should be a standard of handling things as opposed to the member knowing it all depends on who they talk to.

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

    Pros

    Operations Managers do not have to work weekends

    Cons

    When you are hired, you are not given all the information about the position. The company wants you to be brainwashed into thinking their way. You are managing staff that you do not work with. You are working the desk all day while answering phones, calling bad accounts, ordering and maintaining supplies, writing schedules, and having conference calls. You have a lunch which is supposed to be from 1pm to 2pm but only if the sales team covers the desk for you. My boss told me to walk around and steal employees on my unpaid lunch period in a bad neighborhood. You are micro managed to the point that you have to ask to sneeze. You are paid and hourly rate plus commission on clearing accounts but are decommisioned if the customer falls deliquent again.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to respect and value your employees.
