    Pros

    I have a great manager and management team above her. I feel I am treated with respect.

    Cons

    Pay is not the best in the world, and it is hard to advance if you don't have a degree in a fitness related discipline. It is also hard to advance if you don't live in Minneapolis, Chicago or Dallas.

    Advice to Management

    Open up more remote opportunities for your great employees who live in other areas so that they can advance and add more to the company as well.

    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

    I have been working at Health Fitness part-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    Great location in Atlanta. My manager was a great mentor and encouraged professional growth. The members are great and you have the potential to make a commission on personal training.

    Cons

    not really a con...this job is pretty repetitive... Almost gave this company 5 stars but that is only because the Manager is outstanding

    Advice to Management

    I have absolutely no advise for management...

    I have been working at Health Fitness full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Supports flexibility in work arrangement with many employees allowed to work remote from home offices. Minneapolis office lives the culture of wellness. Investments in technology partnerships will modernize the user experience and provide a competitive advantage.

    Cons

    Hires experts and then doesn't listen to them. Leadership consists of many who lack for expertise in the areas that they lead. Top down decision making informing those who are impacted by change rather than involving them of the change. Limited leadership level accountability. Management team fosters critical approach that seeks flaws rather than building on what is working.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in fresh members to senior leadership team who bring proven expertise in their respective areas.
