    I have been working at National Health Educators full-time

    Pros

    Nice job. Good pay and hour choices. There is no selling and there are no product sales. The job is exclusively about creating fitness solutions for clients.

    Cons

    No dental. No medical. There is not much growth with the company. Once you have a position you can not laterally move into a different position without having to go through the entire recruitment process again.

    Advice to Management

    A suggestion to management would be to open some NHE gyms. They could have it fully staffed with fitness advisors that would be well trained in nutrition which personal trainers are not.

    I have been working at National Health Educators part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    After you get hired you get a very detailed job offer letter which stipulates by bullet point ALL of your job responsibilities. Often with these types of fitness jobs you get told one thing and then you find out that you are required to do other things that perhaps are less 'glamorous'. So for me, the detailed job responsibilities is a big plus.

    Cons

    Not certain if this is a 'con' but there isn't much clarity on longevity. I haven't really had a chance to discuss long term employment with any of the higher ups but from my personal research I could not find NHE employees who had worked for the company for longer than 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is regarding the mtc exam that is used to score everyone's expertise. I would not have everyone take the same exam. Someone like myself, who is a nutritionist, isn't going to fair as well on the exercise science portions of the exam.

    I have been working at National Health Educators full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    100% of the work can be done from my tablet. I am not required to work out of an office.

    Cons

    No insurance for full time employment is not ideal for men with families. I pay $2300 a year in premiums that the company should be paying for.

    Advice to Management

    Offer insurance, both medical and dental. I understand that is all factored into the compensation but the time searching for quality insurance is not. Particularly for those of us who come from companies that provide insurance to all their employees.

    I have been working at National Health Educators part-time

    Pros

    I was initially attracted to NHE because of their international affiliations. I was particularly interested in working with their French division. If you have international fitness instruction aspirations, I recommend this company.

    Cons

    A downside would be no career advancements.

    Advice to Management

    Create pathways to upper management. Seems like the top jobs are locked out for new comers.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule allowance so I can work late hours on certain days.

    Cons

    No medical or 401K plan for full time employees. A definite bummer.

    Advice to Management

    There should be some benefits to being full time employed. Currently there is none. That needs to change if you guys want to keep talent.

    I have been working at National Health Educators part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My primary reason for applying for a position with NHE was to expand my skill set and acquire a greater understanding of how to properly train people online. Although I am not training clients per se, I am learning the online training environment which requires different types of teaching techniques as opposed to face to face training.

    Cons

    I have not come across any cons of the position.

    Advice to Management

    I do not have a manager.

    I have been working at National Health Educators full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My job requires me to teach international personal trainer certification and licensing programs for NHE. The logistics took a couple of days to set up because I needed to have a more reliable Internet web cam setup and my area doesn't have the best Internet provider but once everything was approved by NHE I was able to begin work immediately.

    Cons

    Before I took the position I did a lot of research online and found an overall approval of the NHE programs, particularly from post graduate degree holders who praise the complexity of the material.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise the parent company to convert many of the positions to 1099. I was a 1099 at my previous job and I prefer the independent status overall.
