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

Pros

If you're into 100% commission and they get you to drink enough of the kool-aid it's not a bad time. If you really do the math and don't get sucked into the rah-rah atmosphere things look a little different. There's an opportunity to do well if you never leave the club.

Cons

I don't even know where to start. Young inexperienced managers. Extremely cut throat. Integrity isn't exactly rewarded. 60-70 hour weeks. They send you to a certification at the corporate office to start that covers the basics, but good luck if you have any questions when you get back the club. That may just be my experience but getting someone to teach you the little things at the beginning is like pulling teeth. When I finally got rolling and became good at what I did I started to realize how terrible everyone I worked with was. Get ready to watch your back and protect your money. I made the mistake of being the nice guy and being a team player in the beginning. The gesture was not returned. People get pretty weird on a 100 percent commission. Especially in a shared territory. I couldn't take a day off without someone stealing my business, while getting the scraps because I was the new guy. The membership advisors pull the weight of the club and bring in 80% of the revenue, yet they're still seen as the lackies. I'd honestly like to forget the experience all together. Looking back now is almost giving me a migraine. Extremely unprofessional.

Advice to Management

Don't be a scumbag.

    I worked at Life Time Fitness part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    membership
    great clients- surrounded by the elite members of your community
    great 'team' feeling with other employees
    beautiful work environment
    great good food at the cafe
    free childcare while you work out
    great programs and department design (club within a club)

    Cons

    must meet goals or else you will be fired
    management only cares about the bottom line, meeting goals, they will even manipulate to get you fired in order to save their own jobs
    PAY, very low
    What they say as far as values go, sounds good, but they dont live up to it

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees!! There are platforms designed to protect you, but they are not being followed up on. I was discriminated against and followed it up to HR and nothing was done. I lost my job in the end. I was very sad to lose my clients.
