Certified Yoga Instructor/Shop Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 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.

Fun work environment
Membership Sales Advisor (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 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.

Merged with another agency
Counselor (Former Employee) –  Albany, NYFebruary 7, 2019
Following the merger with another agency in the community, Equinox seemed to struggle - a lot of overturn and changes in management and policy. Concern regarding financial stability of programs.

A stepping stone. That’s all it is
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 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
Pros
Education
Cons
No healthcare, low pay, long hours

Lifeguard (Current Employee) –  Bethesda, MDFebruary 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.

Great entry into the workforce. High turnover. Low company loyalty.
General Manager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJanuary 28, 2019
It’s a great start to any career at any level.
No company loyalty.
Work hard for as long as you can then take off once you find a better job, or the company finds a better person to take your roll.
Pros
Good pay in comparison to other companies.
Cons
Poor work life balance. Work weekends, holidays and end of month. Quick turnover if anything doesn’t match up.

You will never be appreciated for your work!
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/Payroll
Human Resources Specialist (Former Employee) –  Hawthorne, CAJanuary 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.

Quick paced but great
Front Desk, Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Great Neck, NYJanuary 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.
Pros
fast paced, positive work environment, down time when the busy times are over, breaks to work out during
Cons
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, MAJanuary 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.
Pros
Great training and working environment.
Cons
Not competitive compensation plan. Hard to take vacation time.

Tier 3 Personal Trainer (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CADecember 31, 2018
You get out what you put it. If you put in the work, you'll get what you deserve. If you put in the time you can build a successful business, if not you'll never have the success you want.

Kids Club Attendant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 16, 2018
To be honest equinox’s makes a easy side job nothing permanent. There’s plenty of favoritism and not enough good communication skills. Definitely make sure you have another job to rely on.
Pros
Free gym membership
Cons
Short breaks
