        I worked at Retro Fitness part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Free gym membership and 50% off protein shakes.

        Cons

        Very low pay, asking you to do daycare, members who complain a lot, stuffy air quality, asking for things to be done for the owner forgetting about them, management who is not transparent, fake reviews on Google from the staff and members for incentives, the owner has no gym knowledge. Adding to this this Retro does not update their equiptment and machines which is frustrating for staff, because the members are always...

        Advice to Management

        Leadership instead of management, being more transparent, listening to what your members want

          I have been working at Retro Fitness part-time for more than a year

          Pros

          It's chill. Flexible scheduling. Nice coworkers. The uniform is gym gear which is comfortable.

          Cons

          No raises, wants you to do for the company when they do compensate you in any way. Been here over a year, same pay.

          Advice to Management

          Take care of your employees better.

            I worked at Retro Fitness part-time for less than a year

            Pros

            Free membership and discount on smoothies

            Cons

            You are literally BY YOUR SELF working but management expects you to walk around the gym, clean and wipe down machines, while also making sure everyone who comes in checks in. The pay is terrible!!!! You have to buy the shirt or jacket to work in with your own money.

            Advice to Management

            At least supply the uniform you want us to work in!!!!
