      Training is sales

      Pros

      Amazing facilities, great amenities, excellent space to train and work. Rates are competitive and higher than local averages making work lucrative if you have a full or nearly full book of clients. Free membership is a perk but creating the time and space in your schedule for yourself can be challenging with the "always on/always helping" corporate mentality. Some opportunities for advancing in your professional field, mostly through your own commissions (100% as a trainer) through selling training, products, nutrition and other services.

      Cons

      LifeTime is a large corporation and consistently has the bottom line in the forefront of club/management. Sales is a huge driving force and you MUST be able to sell yourself and your services.. the demand and turnover rate is very high.

      This sh.. was a nightmare

      Pros

      Free gym membership Weekly pay Insurance is okay.

      Cons

      4 spa managers in a 3 year period. 3/4 spa managers were tremendously inexperienced, dismissive of employees, unethical. If an employee is made uncomfortable or sexually assaulted by a member, management will dismiss you and allow that member to return unless you make a scene (S. Patton former manager). The spa has a cancellation policy that protects the pay of technicians when clients no-show appointments;They refuse to enforce it, costing the spa and the technician. Commission is determined by the revenue per hour in the 4 week period prior to the current pay period. But they won’t tell you that directly in your interview. High turnover. Not actually African American friendly. Manager M. Henry offered to shred an intake form for client to allow a tech to perform a service with a severe allergy to ingredients included in the service. Management lacks time management and critical thinking which is why technicians are running out of supplies and are not able to replace them. Management is scatterbrained and vague when asked direct questions. The spa has taken a deep decline in management. Madison’s Henry and Felsenthal are the worst.

      There Is Better Out There

      Oct 5, 2021 - Manager

      Pros

      I loved the co-workers and trainers I met and worked with. The free membership was nice.

      Cons

      They overwork their staff and underpay them, yet they keep building clubs and increasing prices for membership. Once a person is a member, the ethics line is blurred and that person’s story as to why they signed up is shared with everyone from each department to figure out how to get them “connected” in the club. Obviously it’s a way to squeeze more money out of members, but I know I wouldn’t want a room of 12-15 people knowing my personal reason for joining. If you have any suggestions for change, they won’t take it, they’ll just coach you out as they expect you to shut up and just roll with what you’re told to do. Management training is terrible, and they expect you to know everything immediately. They systems failed often, so processes couldn’t be completed. The running joke some of us employees always had was a “healthy way of life for everyone, but the people who actually work here.” Do not expect to get a work/life balance unless you suck up on a regular basis. I was with the company for a number of years, and I had a lot of hope that things would get better. Just don’t waste your time.

      Great Company!

      Pros

      The work was simple, it was easy to have fun and get work done for the day. It was one of the best jobs I've had in terms of always being able to laugh and have a good conversation with almost all of my co-workers on every shift, even from different departments. It made the long shifts go by a lot faster. It was generally an enjoyable experience communicating with members and the work that you do will not go unseen. I felt that my work was valued by both my managers and the guests. While I worked there, we received a free membership, guest passes, and discounts on food, merch, and most partnered brands. Full-time employees do get extra benefits.

      Cons

      Communication with management was one thing that lacked, and a lot of the time would cause a lot of unnecessary tension between the teams and other departments. It's hard to get something fixed in a timely matter, and it's hard to have more difficult conversations about things that can be better in terms of management and communication. A lot of the time, things wouldn't change. This is a problem I witnessed not only in my own department but in almost every department. I do wish there was more flexibility in scheduling, although I was usually able to get time off when I requested it.

      Terrible company unless you drink the kool-aid

      Pros

      Friendly environment... free membership... additional perks

      Cons

      It's a cult-like mentality. They make you feel like you are their family and so critical but of course, everyone is completely replaceable and treated as so at the slightest inconvenience of the company. They have this obsessive culture and when you're drinking the kool-aid you think it's the best company to work for. You want to give 110% of yourself to climb the ladder. However, that ladder is very well-guarded and only for the few schmucks who live for the kool-aid.

      Great company to learn business ropes, but their culture is rapidly changing

      Pros

      - Free gym membership - Discounts on products, spa services, café items

      Cons

      - Members come first. And in this case, that means employees come last. Their Talent Operations model is 1st and foremost that everyone is replaceable. - Their culture over the years has become less and less of a team building environment, and they have combined roles to make 1 person do the job of 2. - Easy to get up to club management level, beyond that it becomes very much so all about who you know and whether you are shaking the right hands. Not at all about whether you are qualified.
