Great high school/college job NOT good for a professional looking for full time work.
Pros: good part time work, flexible schedule
Cons: awful upper management, long hours with little pay
I started with this company when I was 17 years old. I worked part time front desk/sales for 3 years at the same location and loved it. The hours were flexible, the people were nice, and the job was stressful at times but overall it was easy. However, earlier this year I moved to a different location to become a full time assistant manger. I am now wishing I had never taken this position. The pay was awful with no commission on the memberships I sold or the personal training I sold. Meanwhile, 2-3 times per week I was traveling outside of the club to flyer/pick up supplies/drop off deposits at the bank and not once was I given compensation for travel. The owner/operator of the club rarely ever came in and when he did I would often get yelled at for things that he was ultimately responsible for. The personal training manger was impossible to work with and often over charged people for their personal training but did nothing to resolve the issue. The only thing that kept me there for over 3 months was the wonderful front desk staff. If it wasn't for them I would have left only weeks after accepting the job. Like I stated before, it is great for a high school or college student wanting to gain experience in the fitness industry but it is NOT good for a professional who is looking for full time work.
