Our primary goal at Life Time is to ensure customer satisfaction on a day in and day out basis. We interact with a lot of members on a daily basis so you have to be professional with your interactions with the members and also what you do. People are constantly watching what you do and how you act, which has never been a problem for me. But you also see many of the same members quite often and may even become friends with a lot of them. This is what makes the job fantastic for me! With each interaction there is always a story they have, whether it is just about the day they are having, what they did over the weekend, or the news they have to share! You never know what the members are going to say! But as long as there needs are met and they are happy, then I know I'm doing my job right!
Other important aspects of the job include (for my area) constant maintenance (EX: clean tables, pick up towels, etc.), PH and chemical checks every two hours, making sure people show up to work on time, people are being rotated to their positions every fifteen minutes, capacity count every half hour, monitoring the entire building to make sure everything is running smoothly, communication on what is going on in all the departments that run the building, respond to any medical emergency in the entire building, making sure Life Time rules are being enforced, and making sure everyone is comfortable and happy during their shift!
The hardest part of the job is enforcing the rules. Sometimes people just don't know the rules! Most of the time it just takes a few minutes to explain the rules to the – more... members and we avoid future conflicts altogether.This of course happens on a daily basis, but that is honestly the hardest part.
There have been many people that I have worked along side with and I have had the privilege to interact with almost everyone. The people I work with are just like the rest of us, hardworking, determined, and happy to work here! A job really is easier when you have people that you can trust and that go above expectations, it really makes working here that much better! – less
