    Pros

    I would have to say being in the corporate position and ability to accrue some moderate overtime allows my pay to keep me relatively content.

    Cons

    I think sometimes the decision makers forget that we are people who have families, goals and dreams. I believe that the people who work out in the club's that are nowhere near the corporate office get overlooked for raises and promotions even when they have been with the company several years. Numerous managers and colleagues agree that I am an exemplary employee.I have been told by different managers that I would have been promoted many times over if I moved nearer to the corporate office in California.

    Advice to Management

    Remember we are people who have families, goals and dreams. Give some of the people in all of the companies markets a shot at a chance to grow and be a tried and true asset to the company. That benefits all involved.

    I have been working at LA Fitness part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It’s very chill and you get to meet a lot of people who share the same passion for fitness.

    Cons

    Some management doesn’t implement policies that they should be implementing throughout their team.

    Pros

    Front Desk: Friendly environment and interactive job to develop communication skills. Learn to multitask in a fast-paced environment. What I like most about the company is the consistency throughout all its clubs. In the Bay area the gyms are called City Sports Club. City Sports and LA Fitness are sister companies and carry the same feel and look throughout all its gyms.

    Cons

    Each club must hit a quota for calls on declined accounts. Members become frustrated when called multiple times. May get grilled on the phone.

    Advice to Management

    Redesign EFT guidelines for clear-up calls.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity for growth, they want you to move up within the company

    Cons

    very corporate, hard to solve issues when they dont give you the power to handle issues at club level
