    I have been working at In-Shape Health Clubs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free Gym membership and 1 hour lunch breaks! Great motavational employees and helping people get fit is a great thing to do!!!

    Cons

    Managment has always been wishy washy, sometimes it's good but other times its a pure headache. Communication is very poor - alot of the time I don't get needed information until the last moment or after it's too late. The pay scale changes every 3 months and the hours are not the best at all - being at work 9 hours a day takes up all your free time.

    Advice to Management

    Train the mamnagers on how to manage a team and be supporting of that team, be more constructive criticism is lacking - I am the longest lasting sales person at my location but I'm being treated as if I'm a new employee. I rarely get congratulated on my achivments and if I do its a good job and nothing more... if I make a small mistake or one of my numbers are low they pound on that for a whole week. there is no balance. and Stop changing they way we get paid every 3 months it's not fare at all.

    I worked at In-Shape Health Clubs part-time

    Pros

    Quality clubs, generally good management, and plenty of opportunities to move up, as the company is growing pretty rapidly for the industry.

    Cons

    Mediocre pay, not too much support from higher-ups, compensation and benefits are not anything special, and work-life balance is not very progressive. Overall, the company itself does not have a very progressive culture.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to make employees want to work for you. The "InShape Lifestyle" doesn't seem to extend to employees, and this makes employees less likely to stay with the company.

    I have been working at In-Shape Health Clubs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fun work environment, free membership, great members, and paid vacation if your full time.

    Cons

    Lack of yearly evaluations, no raises (ever!), high turnover rate, horrible management (not everywhere), and inconsistent hours

    Advice to Management

    Yearly evaluations should be implemented and not optional. Raises and merit increases are only given this way and the lack of them is why people leave. Regardless if you're a salary or hourly employee no one sees an increase in pay unless forced by the state/goverment. 3-4% increase in pay is the average given and isn't asking too much in my opinion.

    I worked at In-Shape Health Clubs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My co-workers and the folks I worked with in other departments were amazing. The company is growing like crazy and is ready to take on the world.

    Cons

    In this push to become the next big thing they have really lost a lot of the family vibe that was so amazing.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the loyalty and family values that made In-Shape the amazing company it is today.

    Pros

    Free membership to all clubs

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible if you have a family. Very expensive and no HMO option. All options are PPO and why it's more expensive. Company also does not have Flexible spending accounts or discount for immediate family members. I would like to stay with company long term but the amount I have to pay for medical is outrageous.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great!
