    I worked at Nuffield Health part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice place to work in general

    Cons

    No proper checklist .the one in place for a week took about 10 mins to fill and check your own job a manager with no cleaning experience at cleaning and thinking a part time cleaner has the same time in which the part cleaner can do the same has the full time cleaner - after the build not getting proper clean done all full cleaning wasn't done - she dislike when someone spotted how dirty the changing rooms was and I was gonna scrub - the looks - any ways on the whole I had over 30 years of cleaning under my belt and never seen it badly run from the cleaning side of things -nit picking because I was always ready at 10 pm that's was the end of my shift when I seen the other cleaner suppose to leave at six but always see her on a 10am to 6pm shift leave early any way but I say thankyou for giving me a chance I did enjoy the cleaning side the manager side due to lack of the expreince was a let down

    I worked at Nuffield Health (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was given a few good leads for PT. Also members wanted PT as they were professionals.

    Cons

    Management seemed to not really be bothered about club meeting its full potential and doing all that they could for members. The club was run down, could have done with a refurbishment. Not enough staff to complete tasks so PT's were expected to do jobs that had nothing to do with the role. Also I wasn't given the opportunity to progress as training was not given/exams I needed to pass were postponed.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about the atmosphere/image given out to members. Be proactive in training staff.

    I worked at Nuffield Health part-time

    Pros

    Very quiet job. As per. spent 90% of the time sat down doing nothing.
    Good perks, free health check ups and a fantastic gym membership.

    Cons

    Really, really boring!
    Was not trained fully to use the equipment. did not gain any official qualification through the company.

    Advice to Management

    Futher training of staff. increase the rotation time off the poolside. Consider us and reception swapping roles continuously. Can be mind numbing on the poolside for 8 hours with only a 30 min break.

    Pros

    Really friendly staff, let me work flexible hours and offered over time when requested. Rota was on a week to week basis and allowed to work around university. Free gym memebership.

    Cons

    Poor pay. All Life guards on a zero hour contract so no holidays given. Rota often changes due to the rotational staff.

    Advice to Management

    Value staff responsibilities with pay. Proper structure required. proper efficient rota system is required so that last minute switches can be avoided.
