    I worked at Life Time Fitness part-time

    Pros

    Lifetime offers flexible working hours working in the summer camp and the child center. You get access to Lifetime amenities while you work over the summer.

    Cons

    Since you must constantly be working with the kids, you do not get any breaks throughout the day. Even at lunch you are working and monitoring the kids despite 8-9 hour long shifts.

    Advice to Management

    A system for a five minute break every hour would be helpful for counselors to unwind throughout the day.

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    All departments are very supportive of each other. Whether it's the spa, the cafe, operations, training, group fitness, general management, membership, everyone is in it together.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any! I really like it here... the only thing is that changes can sometimes happen in the blink of an eye and a little more notice with big changes would be nice, other than that, everything is great!

    Work can be stressful or too much.

    Training of new employees should be more effective and in-depth.

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Outstanding development culture
    Very energetic and high paced environment
    Good pay

    Cons

    Poor middle level management that does not practice what they read and preach about. Constantly manipulating top talent instead of treating them with transparency and value.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your employees that do not need you to succeed and understand that even through their performance may only be a little above the rest, it takes no work on your part compared to the rest that are not self sustained. A lot of great talent is missed in this company because we promote executors instead of leaders. Stop driving to a scoreboard ad understand the bigger picture.

    Pros

    Fun place to work in the summer, free membership, discounted food

    Lifeguards do not make that much more than minimum wage although it's a specialized skill job.

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

    Pros

    Lifetime continually offers employees educational courses to stay current and informed in the wellness industry. Participation in community-building activities are also encouraged. There is also the perk of club membership and employee discounts.

    Cons

    Areas for potential growth include finding ways for employees to feel valued amd compensated for their time, energy and dedication, especially since work outside of clocked hours is often required.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, I enjoyed working with the crew of Lifetime. We relocated to California and not near a club now.

    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    Free membership, not much else that's positive.

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance, poor upper management, poor experience overall. Every department has numbers to hit and that's all management focuses on instead of their staff.

    Advice to Management

    I'm at a loss for words for upper management. They don't treat their employees well and allow them to grow into roles.
