    I have been working at Health Fitness full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been at HealthFitness for more than 9 years and counting. As with any company and position there are challenging days but I have a great deal of respect for my direct manager and the people I work with everyday. The associates are passionate about doing their best every day to exceed expectations.

    I have proved myself and the quality of my work through the years and been acknowledged through promotions and significant merit increases. I also enjoy a great deal of flexibility to work from home and flex my hours to accommodate life with two small children.

    Cons

    The company has grown rapidly in the 9 years I have been there and as a result have experienced some growing pains. Management is aware of the pains and over the last year has taken a lot of steps to address and fix the problems. As a result, I am optimistic about another great 9+ years with HealthFitness.

    I have been working at Health Fitness full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    HealthFitness has always offered opportunities for career growth, but over the past years the opportunities have expanded into a variety of areas of the business and allowed employees to venture into areas they may have never thought possible. I always feel challenged and supported by management and my co-workers (they are like an extended family) and always there to support you.

    Cons

    Honestly I can't think of any. I have always enjoyed the company and people I work with.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow and expand as a company, so opportunities for associates grow too. Expand on benefit options, great add with Vision Care & tuition reimbursement, maybe some Orthodontics coverage.

    I have been working at Health Fitness full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance, good benefits, career growth opportunities and development, company culture is fun, access to work out facility in building is free including group exercise classes, and engaging health and wellness programming with a new platform to track your progress and participate in fun activities.

    Cons

    The company is in a state of growth, and with that can come some growing pains. I am excited about the direction the company is going, so the growth and changes are exciting to experience.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! We are an industry leader, and with leading edge technology including our new BioVia suite of health management programs and iPads at screening events, we have a very positive outlook for the future of this company.

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

    The pay is good which includes up to $24 per hour, depending on your education/experience; and mileage reimbursement. You get to choose your own schedule with plenty events to keep you busy. Also, the coworkers are professional, friendly, and helpful.

    Cons

    As a full time manager, it is hard to balance your personal life and work with all the traveling you must do.

    Advice to Management

    They are doing a great job.

    I have been working at Health Fitness full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people, their passion, leadership, and the ability to make a difference are the highlights of the company. It's not a company that's plagued by politics; rather, it's an organization of hard working, caring, bright, dedicated people.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is workload. The organization runs lean, so it takes discipline, time management skills and the ability to prioritize to stay focused.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You're on the right path, in my humble opinion, and I am excited about the future of HealthFitness. Leadership is comprised of some of the most genuine and talented people I have had the privilege to work for.

    I have been working at Health Fitness full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful training, responsive management team, responsive support from several departments, pretty flexible work schedule

    Cons

    There is a super quick learning curve, but I don't know that that's exactly a con, just a challenge to overcome. Also, I think it's not really a con either, but perhaps gym membership subsidy? I mean we are a Health and Fitness company, so we compensated with assistance and encouragement to do that. It's a pretty standard benefit these days.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Continue with the great communication long after the employee is hired and encourage professional growth.
