    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.

    Pros

    Great experience working with great people. Positive work environment highly focused on customer service. Many opportunities to meet new people and develop relationships with patrons. Employees also get a free membership.

    Cons

    A lot of the staff is younger individuals, including teenagers. This can occasionally lead to an unprofessional environment. It's good to have fun, but not too much.

    Advice to Management

    The facility is absolutely beautiful, and the staff is very welcoming and friendly. My only advice for management would be to ensure that they keep their staff professional.

    Pros

    It is ok. Alot of clients and great facilities. worth it for the free membership. the also have pool indoor and outdoor as well as saunas and massive weight room.

    Cons

    Very corporate, it is clear that the higher ups could care less about you. you are just a number and you have to meet their quota.

    Advice to Management

    care more about employees and hold back on the money hungry corporate work atmosphere that I hate so much.
