    I have been working at Planet Fitness full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun work environment, solid pay with experience at management level, predictable work, solid benefits, excellent clientele. Great first job out of college or to add to a resumé to start a career

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is a challenge managing a 24/7 facility, holding staff accountable over various shifts can be tiring. Will be cleaning often so need to be energized all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Give more incentive to entry level position employees to attract better talent

    I have been working at Planet Fitness full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Great environment.
    -A lot of potential growth opportunities.
    - Flexible with school, other jobs, etc.
    -Free gym membership.

    Cons

    -Minimum wage doesn't compensate for workload.
    -Cleaning can be physically demanding.
    -Expectations from corporate can be unrealistic at times.
    -Raises are seldom.
    -Hours for management can be LONG.
    -Not really any benefits other than gym membership.
    -Health care only extended to full time.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to take care of everyone across the board a little more as far as pay. As employees and/or managers, we do a lot of work that can be physically and mentally draining for little compensation regarding pay rate.

    Pros

    Good co workers and flexible with schedule but other than that ... not sure is there are any pros to the job

    Cons

    Management is so bad ! Maybe it is how little they pay everyone but nobody cares about their job. They don’t show up to their shifts and expect you to do their cleaning for the day.
