    I have been working at Health Fitness full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The aquatic staff is great and the facility is fantastic. The members/students/alumni are really interesting!

    Cons

    There are limited professional development opportunities, so you need to create your own. The pay is not enough for the experience level and the amount of work that is completed.

    Advice to Management

    Have a professional development plan in place for each full time staff. And re-visit the Health Fitness contract, the staff really don't get paid enough to keep up with the cost of living in Boston.

    Pros

    Autonomous work a majority of the time. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Technology advancement and over-promising with struggling customer retention have been major issues over the past 10 years. While they have grown, it has definitely been a bumpy ride.

    Pros

    Flexable hrs. Different settings & locations. Creativity to teach & service client in various setings. Working with different staff & clients on a consistent basis.

    Moving heavy equipment up steps. There were many times that we were unable to have a break or lunch especially after 5,6 or more hrs.. Standing for many hrs.

    Advice to Management

    Equipment needed to be up graded. Consistency in carrying out protocol. It would be appreciated if uper level management ask on site staff for in put.

    Pros

    They pay a set rate based on qualifications and are transparent about it. Good screening leads will buy snacks and HealthFitness provides the leads with a budget for snacks. All measurements are put into a iPad by each screener so there is less chance of a confidentiality breach.

    Cons

    Travel time is not paid if your drive to an event far away, but mileage is paid at the federal rate after the first 30 miles one way. It's hard to drive a really long way and only get reimbursed for the wear and tear on your car but not your time. Employee portal is often not working and not very user friendly.

    Pros

    Worked on my own. Clients at corporate facility

    Cons

    Part time work. No opportunity for growth. I left the job for another situation and attempted to be rehired for the same position several times and they did not hire me. They would not give me any feedback as to why.
