    I worked at Town Sports International Holdings part-time

    Pros

    Your co workers become your friends very quick, and there isn't too much demand from you as an employee: show up on time, be courteous, and stay attentive. Not demanding at all. The pay is what you expect from a gym, but that suited me fine. The management i worked with was always friendly and approachable!

    Cons

    "Bad eggs" or people that don't pull their weight tend to have no consequence for their actions. It seemed like you could get away with a lot for a job that as i mentioned earlier, is fairly easy. There also isn't any real chance to grow with the company when you're part time, but I knew this going into it so manage your expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on top of things, and keep the staff up to date! Beyond that, this is a great place to work for.
