    I worked at Equinox Fitness part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    nice perks, good co workers, helpful managers, clean club, free breakfast, most AMAZING Christmas party ever.

    Cons

    Nearly impossible to become full time in less than 6 months (more like 18+ months). Until then, you're going to need to supplement that $600 paycheck every other week & find insurance elsewhere.

    I've heard most clubs don't have the comradery of the Rockefeller club
