overall the company in Tyson lacks on the spa customer services, therapist never stay long cause of employee drama and bad management. its great to work there for the benefits but they expect you to bring in the clients, you mind of well be working on your own and the pay should be higher if your doing all the work.
Certified Yoga Instructor/Shop Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 15, 2019
The pay is decent as well as the culture. There is constantly people moving and leaving which can create some instability but everyone is very positive and uplifting throughout all the changes. Good benefits.
Membership Sales Advisor (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 11, 2019
Very family-like, fun work environment. A typical day at work consisted of utilizing the sales process, meeting with clients, setting up appointments, and blasting e-mails. Hardest part of job was unrealistic sales quota and unsupportive management.
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 6, 2019
Equinox as a company is complete garbage. I was a trainer for four years and recently (Jan 2019) am no longer with them. These past four years I saw first hand how the company treats its employees. Slowly taking away healthcare benefits, no longer allowing trainers to go to other gym locations, and not really giving trainers much love and appreciation in general. As personal trainers for the company we alone make the company the majority of its profits, and to know we are not appreciated was why I’m glad I’m no longer there.
The good thing about Equinox is their education system. They have a lot of amazing coaches teaching you the ins and outs of being a great coach and a great busniness person. I would only suggest someone work for Equinox if they are a complete beginner, or you have no real world personal training experience. Use equinox for the education, build a decent client base and then run! The brand will make you think you should stay but trust me, there is very limited growth there! Get what you need to get out of the company and then get out of there ASAP
Lifeguard (Current Employee) – Bethesda, MD – February 4, 2019
This job is very competitive. They don't really care about you but for their members. Everything is about the members. This place will rather have you work all the time without a break to make sure the customers are satisfied.
esthetician (Former Employee) – 97 Greenwich Av. – January 27, 2019
I was forced to quit . Managers doing nothing to grow the business . They actually will do everything to kill your business. You will have a small percentage of commission and No salary. They are very 'smart' on that-:(
Human Resources Specialist (Former Employee) – Hawthorne, CA – January 21, 2019
A typical day at work is reviewing personal trainers hours. Submitting payroll codes and completing daily timesheet for three gyms. The hardest part of the job is going over sexual harrasment incidents and following with reports. The most enjoyable part is promoting other employees and networking with the diferent locations.
Front Desk, Customer Service (Former Employee) – Great Neck, NY – January 14, 2019
As far as customer service it's the best.
When people work out, endorphins are released. They feel good and happy and that in turn makes the work much easier. Very little stress typically as people are for the most part very happy (not just your co-workers but the patrons as well)
Hardest shifts were in the early morning. The gym would be very busy and there would be a ton of guests checking in and data and paperwork to be done.
fast paced, positive work environment, down time when the busy times are over, breaks to work out during
management was pretty severe, infelxible shifts, low pay
Great when it comes to providing education to employees.
Personal Trainer/Fitness Instructor (Former Employee) – Chestnut Hill, MA – January 3, 2019
Equinox does excel in making education and training available to its Personal trainers. The working environment is friendly, and the Trainers get along very well. The problem was when I needed to go on vacation. I felt that I had to beg every time I needed to take time off. Also, I was not impressed with the compensation plan either.
Great training and working environment.
Not competitive compensation plan. Hard to take vacation time.
