    "Be honest about pay"

    Pros

    Free gym membership to run down gyms. Ability to network with all different types of people, which helps you find a better job.

    Cons

    In order to get your commission, which is $10 per sale you have to make more sales than the club has cancels, which means basically, if there are 200 cancels in a month and you and your coworker do a ton of work to get 199 people to sign up you won’t get commission. So, you’re doing all this work for base salary which is minimum wage (you’re better off working for McDonalds.) This is something, when they are hiring, they don’t make clear until the end of the month when you’re already convinced you’re going to make your commission. I believe this company won’t be around much longer because they are so disorganized, the owner doesn’t really care about the company, I think mainly he’s just trying to get as much money out of it as he can as the ship is sinking.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and up front about what your employees are to expect when it comes to the commission and how it works. Don’t tell them that they are going to get $10 per sale and then later tell them that they won’t get it unless they get an impossible number of sales. That’s called bait and switch.

    With the right employees in place and a positive attitude throughout your club, your location will be a place everyone wants to be a part of. If those qualities are lacking, it will impact the atmosphere for your members and prospects.
