    I have been working at Equinox Fitness part-time

    Pros

    Great environment. Management truly cares about making the clubs a great place for its members. The "decision makers" are always looking for the newest ways to inspire their members. The clubs are often being updated with the latest and greatest equipment.

    Cons

    You constantly have to prove yourself but that may just be the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on your path.

    I have been working at Equinox Fitness part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management is great, the atmosphere is laid-back. Commission is based on your sales and goals. IF the shop reaches the monthly goal then the commission goes up. There are also bonus's for sales over $500. This is a self-driven place since only one person works at a time. It's all on the sales associate to make the sales happen, and it shows who is working and who isn't. We get free membership and discount on shop items, spa treatments and personal training.

    Cons

    It can get boring at times when the gym is in slow traffic. I find myself cleaning a lot and reorganizing the shop to make myself busy. That's pretty much it.

    Pros

    Young, energetic group of people. Cool environment with a great product. Fun to work at with good perks like access to the other clubs.

    Cons

    You don't get 2 days off consecutively. For example, you'll get Thurs/Sat off of Fri/Sun. During the last week of the month, you're required to work every day of the week and long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for MAs to take time off so they don't get burnt out. Being on all the time is exhausting and is probably why there's a high turn over rate.
