More Pros and Cons

  1. "Team atmosphere. Cafe employees treated poorly by some of the other staff"

    Pros

    Team atmosphere and easy to pick up duties. You get a free gym membership as well which is pretty great

    Cons

    Under appreciated, very hard work, more work to be done than time given. Upper management fails to understand how things operate in the cafe.

    Advice to Management

    Cafe management was great. Corporate doesn't have grip on what happens in cafe. They think one thing will work the same in one city as it does in the other. Not the case.

    I worked at Life Time Fitness full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free gym membership. Flexible Hours

    Cons

    They run with a minimal staff that does not create the best experience from my time there. They work you to the bone on minimal pay.

    Advice to Management

    If your company Slogan is "The Healthy Way of Life Company", it would be a great image to provide all employees (both part time and full time) insurance. Do not hire more part time employees to flush those good employees under the 34 hours requirement.

    Pros

    It puts you around a great fitness environment. The job has a lot of perks here and there. One of the best perk is a free membership.

    Cons

    The drama at this job can become a hassle but the pay is awful for how much you are expected to do.

    Advice to Management

    This corporation is a multimillionaire company and the company is outstanding however the pay for the employee is extremely bad considering with all the recent budget cuts.

    Part time work available, but not consistent from week to week. Small discount on cafe items and food as an employee.

    Provide avenue for employees to report inappropriate behavior of their manager without fear of repercussion.

    Pros

    The people are amazing there. The relationships you build with the customers are awesome. Also the DISCOUNTS and the free membership are a plus.

    Cons

    Management and supervisors are very immature more so than the high school students.
