    I worked at YogaWorks part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The staff and management were super cool. Really relaxed job, not difficult and flexible hours. Seriously easy job man.

    Cons

    customer service. The people in the area are crazy.

    Advice to Management

    nothing! Boss lady was super cool the entire time. To be honest I gave it an extra star because of management, otherwise the low pay and non benefits gets 3 stars

    I worked at YogaWorks part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Healthy atmosphere, positive people, enjoyable work space, you can take classes there for free if the classes aren't full - customers come first

    Cons

    Pay is very low, sales goals can be crazy, they can aggressively sell which does not match the mentality of a yoga goer

    Advice to Management

    take care of your employees, keep up the good atmosphere of the studios,

    I have been working at YogaWorks part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy Work. Good for a part-time job.
    Advancement possible if you want to stay with the company. Holiday pay when applicable. Staff is extremely friendly and very warm.

    Cons

    Need to get better managers to run the studios. Greeters are being overworked and under appreciated. The morale is low and it is all a bad corporate feel, management doesn't understand and it feels dehumanizing.

    Advice to Management

    Train your staff and managers better. Stop treating us like robots, raise work morale instead of working us to the bone with no additional compensation.

    Pros

    You can start out as a sub, get some experience in.

    Cons

    There's more of a "keep the classes packed" mentality and some over-pushing of enrollment. It's better to just let the students a take a class at first before trying to sell them on a package before they've even taken a class!

    Advice to Management

    Have name tags on the front desk workers, or put a name plate on the front desk. Let the students take a class first before subjecting them to your sales pitch. Have more than 60 seconds in between when one class starts and another ends.

    Pros

    Many great teachers and good overall atmosphere with beautiful studios.

    Cons

    The most disgraceful treatment of employees from so many standpoints...horrible pay, utterly unattainable numbers before pay raise, offered benefits to compensate for poor pay that are never actually given, and basically the poorest, most unreliable management in history. This company truly does not care about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your current management and start over. Try to respect your employees instead of treating them as a disposable commodity.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, free yoga and friendly co workers were the upsides to this position

    Cons

    Large workload while on duty and sometimes no support and no benefits really for part-time work.

    Advice to Management

    Look to your employees and try not to focus on numbers or sales as much as keeping people happy both employees and customers.

    Pros

    Predictable in terms of what they want from you- middle management is nice to the employees. Hours aren't bad, free yoga is good.

    Cons

    Work weekends, but really there's nothing else. Occasionally members can be difficult or want to cancel, but most of the members are happy to be there and most of the employees are too.

    Advice to Management

    No advice really, just be up front about job opportunities in the future, and make sure you do lots of training with everyone so they understand the policies and the culture.

    Pros

    Great community, most clients are friendly and manageable, manager is reasonable and responsive, overall a positive environment and nice place to work.

    Cons

    I would like to be challenged by more upper-level tasks, but there's very little opportunity to move up other than to a yoga advisor position.

    Pros

    Management is trying to focus on yoga instead of sales promotions. A lot of recent turnover but it's probably a good thing as the company realigns its focus

    Cons

    Lean team, need investment in technology to improve efficiency and customer experience. Great office location (one block from the beach) but very dated building
