    I have been working at New York Sports Club part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you are a trainer or group fitness instructor – it's flexible – that's probably about it.

    Cons

    you are a trainer or group fitness instructor – it's flexible – that's probably about it. Everyone is miserable. Trainers and teachers were all thrown off healthcare at the end of 2016. Even the people who do well financially and have benefits and full-time jobs are miserable. I don't know one happy person at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Wise up. Everyone is unhappy. Oh and PS – when you throw us all off healthcare – don't take the deduction during the first pay period of the new year. It makes you look like jerks. It makes you look like you don't know how to run a business. Which I think is the answer to the question. You're going to be closing more clubs in the next year – tell people – let us all know that not complete transparency – but give your employees a heads up that they are about to lose their jobs.

    Pros

    Free Membership with Employment, and co-workers are all friendly.

    Cons

    Minimum Wage pay, under average gym, and management is not necessarily the best.

    Advice to Management

    While I was employed some issues caused by management were blamed on me and were also talked down upon multiple times without correct reason. When decided to leave was told I had to reconsider my priorities because I didn't take hours they wanted me to work even though I was currently a student and taken classes during those shifts.
