    I worked at Sport&Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I didn't like anything about the job.

    Cons

    Working at the front desk meant giving fake smiles to the members and other staff. You just need to look good, stand there and answer the questions. Nothing productive or no scope or career progression is there. I felt like a bl**dy Mannequine.

    Pros

    The pay isn't that bad.

    Cons

    You are always swamped with work here. You even have to work overtime here. They need to hire more people so that the employees who are always swamped with work get some time for breaks.

    I worked at Sport&Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    We get free gym membership, though who would still want to be there if you're already spending most of your time in the gym?

    Cons

    Pay is minimum, you have to get clients to sign up to get commissions and bigger pay. Management plays favorites and is unfair to everyone that is not. We are forced to work overtime without additional benefits while the favorites get more benefits without being forced to work overtime.

    Pros

    I love the job per se because I am passionate about fitness and training people.

    Cons

    This company takes advantage of its employees. We are required to work for longer hours but we aren't getting paid for overtime. It's extremely unfair and unprofessional of them. They think that they own us and would want to maximize our services for their benefits but they couldn't compensate us.

    I have been working at Sport&Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free membership to employees; friendly and energetic co-employees.

    Cons

    Long hours, low pay and poor management. It's unfair when they require us to work for 50-60 hours a week but only get paid for the minimum 40 hours. They are deceiving us and I'm sure it's illegal. Aside from that, the pay we are getting is not competitive and is shameful to even talk about. The management is rude and doesn't care about its employees.
