Wellness Advocate (Former Employee) – NYC, NY – November 9, 2017
I enjoyed my time at Project Relay as Wellness Advocate, the experience and time spent with the team was invaluable. While I had mishaps and it did not work out for me, it has nothing to do with what a great project NORS has proven to be thus far.
Coordinator (Current Employee) – Orange, CA – November 3, 2017
I have been working with them for over a year and love this place, and the doctors are good too, we get one free adjustment per week, the supervises and managers are good too, its very easy to get a day off as well.
Licensed Practical Nurse / Surgical Nurse (Current Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL 33407 – October 19, 2017
Very bad place to work on ethical high stress expect you to do things that are very unethical. Always doing major layoffs they treat the patients worse than they treat the staff if that's even possible
Fast paced enviroment while working with the elderly
Nurse (Former Employee) – Cupertino, CA – September 2, 2017
The job was fast paced I had around 30 patients that I was responsible for. The main part of working was organizing schedule to get work done on time. The management does not prefer to pay for overtime.
A typical day at an event is performing finger sticks to run a lipid panel, basic vital signs, BMI, and paperwork. I've really enjoyed working for this company and the ability to choose when i wanted to work.
Disorganized, dysfunctional, unfriendly, and unsanitary
Wellness Director (Former Employee) – South Amboy, NJ – August 2, 2016
Dysfunctional employment structure leading to overbearing proportions of work for a few and next to nothing for many. A no hands on approach by management. Management was required to wear business casual attire while part-time staff (that mostly ran the place) wore Y branded gym attire. Lack of customer service and initiative on management's part. The business is struggling and going under is a very real possibility, yet there is more desire to find reason in resisting change rather than pursue any new achievements. 4 of the 6 Managers worked in a windowless office with no cameras pretending to do 8 hours of work a day while never being see throughout the building. I was one of the two Managers in the upstairs office and was once suspended without pay for three days, without warning, after the other managers realized I had been using the fitness center and promoting exercise programs during my lunch breaks rather than sitting and eating for 90 minutes a day, REMINDER: I was the Wellness Director at this Y, read the Association's creed.
Peer Educator (Former Employee) – Cobleskill, NY – June 15, 2016
We would have mandatory meetings every Tuesday and we would organize events for the students on campus. We would have tables with little activities in the cafeteria or hand out little goody bags with fun facts about how to reduce stress, eating habbits, etc.
Desk Clerk (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – April 28, 2016
This job is easy, all you have to do is sit at the desk and make sure everything is alright. The hardest part of this job is that it is boring sometimes when it is slow. what is good about this job is that you get to workout for free so its never a bad thing.
Rock Wall Staff (Current Employee) – Grand Forks, ND – March 5, 2016
Working at the Wellness Center Rock Wall is a fun experience to have for individuals looking for a laid back job and ability to climb at work. Unfortunately, working at the Rock Wall pays very little and management can be frustrating. The Wellness Center pays employees minimum wage. Mind you these employees are in the process of getting a 4 year college degree which seems a bit like underemployment for an institution making big bucks. Also, management at the Wellness Center spends very very little money on maintaining the Rock Wall. The shoes are worn and torn with the occasional hole in the toe. Not a bad place to climb but perhaps not the best place to work.
A typical day included assisting customers and answering the phone. I learned how to assist customers, count inventory, work the register, and book golf tournaments. The hardest part of the job was being a female in a predominantly male environment and being taken seriously.
