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

Pros

Free access to all gyms
Commission based pay

Having the ability to sell memberships

Cons

Bad hours
Not earning enough based off of the effort you put in
Poor management
Dangerous work environment
Limiting EFT hours going towards front desk staff
EFT staff needing to exceed quota to earn any form of commission

Advice to Management

Show that you care for your employees. The employee turnover rate is ridiculous. A very helpful thing would be to actually check up on your OMs to make sure they are competent enough for their job. Put the friendliness aside and actually make sure that OMs are doing their job. Another helpful thing would be to have a nonbiased customer service. It makes no sense to have OMs be the customer service when they themselves are the ones who are going to have the most complaints. Treat every complaint as a legitimate one. Actually verify any wrongdoing before letting staff go.

    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.
