A typical day at work
Kids' Activities Team Member/ Camp Councilor (Current Employee), Columbus, OHApril 12, 2015
A typical day at work, consists of a fluctuation of children in and out of the child center. There are good days when everyone is for the most part calm and having fun, but other days it can be chaotic. The best way to manage the hard situations is teamwork. As a team we work well together to insure the safety of the children as well as their enjoyment while they are in the child center.

Positive atmosphere with a family-like culture
Kid's Activities Team Member (Former Employee), Shelby Township, MIApril 8, 2015
Pros: Very flexible work schedule, free gym membership, met numerous people, and helped me achieve a healthy way of life
Cons: Poorly developed training structure
I was always welcomed as soon as I walked into work with friendly faces, it was very easy to get to know everyone (both other team members and guests). Working there was always challenging yet rewarding. I learned how important a company's culture can be, and how important it can be for team members to get along well. All of my co-workers got along which made work organization easier. The hardest part of my job was innovating under pressure; however, the practice helped increase my skills when it comes to taking matters into my own hands. The most enjoyable part of my job was the experience of working in a large company, while feeling great about helping other people by watching and inspiring their kids, or helping the guests create a healthier lifestyle.

Short internship with little input
Internship as a personal trainer (Former Employee), Bloomingdale, ILApril 6, 2015
Pros: Top of the line equipment, friendly staff, full benefits, many amenities
Cons: Cost of membership, commissional pay
I had only worked in the business for approximately two weeks to gather an insight with the field of work. From my short time with the company, I felt a strong passion for truly finding what a client desired as toward their fitness goals as well as a mentality that you would expect from a health and wellness oriented business.

Decent Job
Child Care Center Supervisor (Former Employee), Omaha, NEApril 5, 2015
Pros: Free membership, good relatonships
Cons: pay, corporate feel
When in the child care center, I loved working with the people I worked with. Management was ok. The focus of a big gym like Lifetime Fitness is money. The focus is not on the staff. When I was there, wages were decent but good luck in getting a raise. After 4 years, 1 raise of 25 cents and I was a Supervisor who worked very hard and was loved by the families.

Good first-time job
LifeCafe Chef (Former Employee), Champlin, MNApril 5, 2015
I worked here for my first job. The people were awesome, the management was pretty good, the hours weren't bad. The only bad thing would be not getting enough hours as a part-time employee. Most people that work there are high schoolers, so they had to divvy up the hours.

Great high school or summer job
Certified Lifeguard (Former Employee), Houston, TexasMarch 19, 2015
Pros: free membership and sweet tan
Cons: hot weather and long hours
Hours were long, went by slowly but it was nice when you rotated to the bottom of the slide and got a chance to cool off in the water. I learned that I have to be flexible to work with high schoolers and understand that they don't think the same way I do. Management was strict on some days and other days they were very lax. Co-workers were all high school students and I am in graduate school. Hardest part of the job was being on my feet for long periods of time and in the hot sun. 99% of the members were easy to get along with and followed the rules. I love kids so having them around was always entertaining.

Productive
Operations/Hospitality Supervisor (Current Employee), Novi, MIMarch 17, 2015
Pros: Able to get more hours if needed
Cons: Takes a long time to advance in the company
A typical day at Lifetime Fitness is pretty much repetitious. You're constantly on your feet making sure that anything in the club is working properly and clean. Being part of management teaches me to be more observate, know what needs to be done and to help co-workers and members in the gym.

Little chance for any time off. Extremely low compensation.
Operations Team Member (Current Employee), Parker, COMarch 1, 2015
Typical work days are generally routine and the same day to day. Management has little to no ambition to move themselves up personally which leaves all of their subordinates in a position of not being able to advance within the company. This also creates low moral between different departments and the employees in general.

Asst Dept Head
Assistant Department Head (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXFebruary 27, 2015
Pros: free gym membership
Cons: pay, benefits, weekend/holiday work
The ADH at Lifetime is probably one of the most underpaid, over worked positions at this company. The DH gives so many tasks to this 'Assistant Manager' and expects 110% commitment and devotion, but refuses to pay the position more than $11 an hour.
