    Management is terrible. Each person you work under is just a shame.
    No room to grow or bump up in status
    Favortism is highly visible
    No one listens

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to work together instead of hating each other.

    I have been working at Freedom Aquatic & Fitness Center part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fun people to work with, even if sometimes people don't show up to shifts. It a good first job sort of place, just don't make a career out of it.

    Cons

    No overtime even when you go overhours
    management is unpleasant at best
    no room to move up
    employees treated like they are disposable

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better, stop thinking of them as machines who do your bidding but as people. Also, maybe do raises. I worked there a long time and only received one .26 cent raise.

    I worked at Freedom Aquatic & Fitness Center part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a good place to work for part time, and the George Mason University ties are attractive to college students.

    Cons

    There is very little room for growth towards a better paying job or a career path.

    Advice to Management

    Look to expand your ties with local businesses and develop your team members more effectively to increase your member retention.
