    I worked at LA Fitness part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice working in a fitness environment meeting people with same interests. Free gym membership while you are employed. Loved working there

    Cons

    When i worked there the computers were very slow when checking in members causing delays that would irritate guests. Managers also blamed you for this delay.

    Advice to Management

    Make people accountable for re racking weights. Its not ok to expect one person to rerack an enitire days worth of weights where weights are all over the place even in the lockerooms during the last 20 minutes of your shift.

    Pros

    If you're goal oriented you will make a lot of money. Hit your monthly EFTs and MISC and you're a-okay! or go above and beyond and make more money.

    Cons

    The job is very repetitive. Part-time staff somehow are always unreliable, there's always that one person who isn't though. Gym goers are very destructive yet, complain that everything is broken. Its 9-5, but you basically have no life besides Saturday and Sunday. No one shows their appreciation for one another.

    Advice to Management

    DOMs need to show more appreciation to the OMs that work their butts off. OMs should be allowed to workout during breaks. Each club should have an assistant OM because even though, yes one person can manage the entire thing, why do sales have an AGM? Having an AOM would stop people sneaking into the club... not having front desk staff manage the entire club at nights....etc.
