    I worked at Life Time Fitness full-time

    Pros

    The supervisors were approachable, and did a good job of clearly laying out their expectations. The field trips and friendly coworkers made working at Life Time fun. A lot of the children who attended camp came for multiple weeks , so it was nice seeing familiar faces from week to week.

    Cons

    The only "break" is during lunch with the summer camp kids, and part of it is often spent going from table to table to help kids open their lunches taking kids to the bathroom.
