    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.

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness part-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    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.

    I worked at Life Time Fitness part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was a good first job and I was able to get a free membership to a gym. There are easier jobs like making smoothes and doing dishes, but can get more complicated when you need to cook. They expect you to learn how to do everything.

    Cons

    The management was very strict and were not always great to work with. You were required to do many jobs,but never offered any raises.

    Advice to Management

    They needed to be kinder and more flexible with the employees. They expect employees to know how to do many jobs, but didn't give proper training
