Slow, relaxed.
Front Desk Associate (Former Employee) –  Baldwin, NYFebruary 11, 2019
Sales are strongly encouraged, but no commission at all for any sales. You have to have to maintain the place meticulously as well, checking the whole gym, the weights, the bathrooms.
Pros
Free gym membership
Cons
Minimum wage, no sales commission to back it up.

Personal Trainer (Current Employee) –  Baldwin, NYFebruary 6, 2019
I love working with the clients at blink because they walk in not knowing anything about fitness or nutrition at all. When they leave they gain a bit of knowledge every-time working with our trainers.
Pros
flexible schedule

Not flexible
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 25, 2019
Only two shifts available. Which means you’re there 4:45 am or start 1-3 pm closing at 11pm; You have the day to get things done/sleep or your day is spent there with little to no time for yourself. Members like to stay after you close, super entitled in lower Manhattan locations, and micro managing at its finest. You get a free membership or can stay after 11pm to work out on weekdays, 8 or 7pm on weekends. Great service if gym is your life.
Pros
Membership
Cons
Management, flexibility, hours

Associate (Current Employee) –  Bronx, NYJanuary 22, 2019
I love working at blink. It’s a nice, relaxed, and healthy environment. It’s not stressful at all and the best job for those gym rats out there because they give you a free membership once you’re a worker there.

Decent Workplace
Senior Club Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 15, 2019
Too many tasks for the managers and not enough hours for the staff. Highers up with always find something wrong during a visit. Can be discouraging from time to time. All managers should get a raise and that does not happen.
Pros
Free Membership
Cons
Pay, not enough hours for your staff, too many tasks for managers

not for its employees
Assistant Club Manager (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PADecember 25, 2018
For the fitness market Blink keeps its staff at the state minimal wage.That even if its blow the stander in the market that they are in. the hardest part about working for the company is they want you to do all the work from moving equipment to clean and clean up human waste, At the cheap rate they can pay

Terrible Pay
Club Manager (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PADecember 19, 2018
Not worth it. Low pay for management. Underpaid staff. Very high turnover. I would not recommend this employer to anyone. Don't waste your time. Good for a first part time job.

A very relaxed and fun place to work at. I felt like I was working with family, the only downsize is the pay. If they could pay more than that, it be great, but it's the minimum wage..

Easy once you've grasped the pace of work
Team Captain (Former Employee) –  Bronx, NY 10463November 29, 2018
one of the busiest locations, fast work pace, this job is basically based on interactions with members or signees. You'll be asked to clean areas of the gym that you may or may not be comfortable with.
Pros
very active locations with many places to shop/eat
Cons
company expects you to handle everything from sign ups to maintenance

Fast paced, results oriented culture with positive attitude
Director (Current Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 6, 2018
Blink offers a fast-paced environment where employees are encouraged to think outside the box and take risks in order to innovate.

Blink provides a clean, cheerful and much needed gym option for communities that are underserved by fitness providers. They hire from the communities they do business in, providing not just healthy living options, but economic opportunities to those they serve.

Lack of compensation
Club Manager (Former Employee) –  Passaic, NJNovember 6, 2018
Over worked for the compensation that is given. Too much favoritism especially with upper management. Not enough resources is given for staff who want to move up in company.

Great place work place, only downside is the pay
Front Desk Associate (Former Employee) –  New JerseyNovember 1, 2018
I loved working at blink. It was probably one of the best jobs Ive ever had. Some of the members are nice and even the people that you work with are great. It literally felt like a second home. You definitely gain a lot of knowledge while working here and customer service experience that will help you out in the future. A major task other than helping members is their "everybody cleans philosophy" and all associates clean the gym. Everything you learn is basically on the spot and its easy to pick up on things. Another great thing about blink is that there are many opportunities to move up in the company if you do your job right. The only downside about this company is the turnover rate due to minimum wage pay. Many employees end up leaving because of it.
Pros
Fun work environment
Cons
Minimum wage pay
