    I worked at MediFit Corporate Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great manager!!! Although that's not guaranteed at every site, it was overall a great learning experience right after college! As a HFS you will interact with members (you will meet lots of different personalities), teach group ex classes, help facilitate wellness/incentive programs for the members, get in touch with your "artistic side" (you will be making poster boards to advertise different things for the fitness center).

    Cons

    Pay is not good, especially for those of us with student loans to pay back, and it's even worse if you have a family to provide for. Additionally, I never got a real lunch break where I could actually get away from the fitness center.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more if you want to keep them!

    They let you be creative.
    They invest into your 401(k)
    Value your family time

    Cons

    Once you are a program manager, there is not a lot of room for promotion. Someone above you needs to leave or new position created.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training for advancement into senior leadership roles. When asking leaders what needs to be done to become more valuable, answer always varies, and no specific training program, or mentorship, is in place anymore.
