    I have been working at New York Sports Club part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to utilize all the facility has to offer. You're also sometimes able to make the customers' day better!

    Cons

    People are extremely rude, the managers are lazy and are not concerned with the quality of customer service, and you do all the work while generally being paid little to nothing.

    Pros

    Sales driven so you learn some stuff about that. Not much else to say. Free membership? Not much to say.

    Cons

    No structure, no help from incompetent manager. No incentive and unprofessional work environment. No clear instructions on what exactly is going on! You sort of just roam around the gym during "floor hours". Pay sucks. And it's a selfish type of atmosphere that starts at the top.

    Advice to Management

    Educate yourselves.

    Pros

    Lot of opportunity for growth, great people

    Cons

    you often do way more then what you where origianly hired for. More costumer complaints go to you because you signed a person up or see them all the time managers pass there jobs off to you. Its a great job just not worth the pay especially when the commission changes and you would have gotten $900+ with a previous pay scale then told you'll get 700 but end up getting 390.

    Advice to Management

    don't change your commission just to cut out of my pocket because you already only pay me min, and make sure you don't just pass your jobs off to lower people.
