    Pros

    - Good managers who trust employees

    - Ability to work part-time based on my schedule

    Our department has mixed ages which is great but some of the high schoolers take their job as social time vs. working.

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

    Pros

    - 401K Plan + pretty good other benefits.
    - Freedom to do what you'd like, just make sure your performance is 100%.
    - Lots of opportunities for your health and fitness goals.
    - Able to inspire and help someone get back on track/reach their own goals. That part is very fulfilling.
    - Great Sales Team and training to get here is pretty enjoyable.
    - Upper Management are awesome and the 1:1 coaching is helpful in order to grow.

    Cons

    - 9-10 hour workdays. Variable hours depending on what the rest of the Sales Team/yourself has going on outside of work during the month.
    - Very little PTO. Once you've used it, in order to have time to take off, you have to work those extra days to make up for it.
    - Difficult to advance.
    - Easy to miss months where you will miss out on a bonus depending on the club.
    - Attrition Bonus tends to be a hit or miss - makes pay hard to live by when you rely on the bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to offer.. Maybe just make it easier for someone to advance if they wish to do so?

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness full-time

    Pros

    This is a quick changing, fast pace, explosive workplace. The company is constantly striving for greatness.

    Cons

    Enough is never enough here. While there are company shout outs, you are only as good as your last week.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on what you say. It feels like there is a lot of speech with zero follow up on a regular basis.
