I have been working at Life Time Fitness part-time

Pros

Free gym membership.
Discounts on the food, spa services, fitness classes and other amenities.
Friendly work environment and employees from all departments are very friendly.

Cons

We are often understaffed during busy times in the cafe which makes it difficult to complete daily tasks.
Sometimes the supply orders are not accurate or complete and we run out of supplies for making food or cleaning.
We are not allowed to accept tips.

Advice to Management

Be prepared to replace employees that leave or decrease their hours during school months. Also hire extra seasonal staff at the beginning of the New Year and before the summer months.
Keep the staff aware of upcoming promotions so we can be prepared for a busier work day and are able to explain the promotions to customers.

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

    Pros

    I have seen advisers make sickening amounts of money
    young/fun culture
    free meals and drinks often
    great training program
    free gym membership ( Though I never had time to use it)
    great on-boarding pay for first 6 months
    Loved the sales managers and GM I had at my location- extremely helpful and kind.
    Relatively fun and easy position.

    Cons

    Very high turnover
    It wasn't surprising to see advisers working entire months without days off to hit personal targets.
    To be successful you will need to put in between 65-80 hours each week.
    You never get weekends off. Most advisers work holidays.
    Bad work/life balance. I felt married to my career.

    Advice to Management

    Start encouraging your workers to live the healthy way of life.
    Promote those who are eager to inspire and teach. Not those who are only good for working 28 days straight.
    Don't use non-paid days off as *gifts*.

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

    Pros

    Free workout facilities for employees and discounts on products. Hours are always available since they are 24/hr

    Cons

    The non-stop lying to employees and negative environment to work in. The internal politics is appauling for a company within this kind of market and the upper management is corrupt.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better (like they're real people)
