Sales Manager Review
Event Manager (Current Employee) –  United StatesJuly 12, 2018
Great place to work. The company is still growing but they love to involve all team members in the development of new idea and best practices. Growth opportunity is slim.

Job?
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) –  The Woodlands, TXMay 30, 2018
I think that individually, the job could be great. The problem is higher ups shoot themselves in the foot and kill tunnel momentum. They counter market themselves, give unattainable goals, and offer no support to tunnels struggling with business. They're very much about numbers and nothing else. Whats most frustrating is the CEO is great. His ideals are on point. The people executing them are not so great.
Pros
Flight time.
Cons
Changes without knowledge, flimsy structure, lack of necessary equipment for work.

Started good ended fair
Trainer, Instructor, Manager, Lead (Former Employee) –  Texas and CaliforniaJanuary 18, 2018
The dream of flight used to apply when the company first expanded but then diminished as too many tunnel were built for profit only and not focused on customer service experience. Too many rules, not enough pay(benefits), micromanaging to cut the fat off after investors came in and tried to ring out every last drop of profit. It's a good job if you'd like to fly but otherwise don't recommend it because it will take more than it gives from you.
Pros
Fly Time
Cons
Pay, injury, hours, poor management, no return on investment

Flight Instructor (Current Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKJanuary 15, 2018
I love the job it self, its very self fulfilling seeing the smiles of all ages. i only wish management wouldn't create issues between staff or create more work that is unnecessary for your roll.
Pros
Free Flight time, Coworkers
Cons

Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) –  The Woodlands, TXDecember 5, 2017
Its a relaxed and fun environment, can get busy at times. The culture is great. Feels like a community! Enjoy flying a lot! The hardest part of the job is on going change, the company is growing. The most enjoyable part is the great people you meet.

Fun place to work
Flight Instructor (Current Employee) –  Hurst, TXAugust 8, 2017
Overall fun place to work.
Free flight time but pay is too low for the work being done by the instructors.
Benefits are included for PT and FT which is nice.
Some locations are productive and some are stubborn to helpful advice given by their employees.
Pros
Flight time
Cons
Low pay

Zero support from upper management
Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  AnywhereMay 16, 2017
If you're a management professional looking to have a meaningful impact of profit margins, efficiency and sales you should not apply for the job. The instructional staff and customer service representatives run the show and will complain to HR, the RM or basically anyone who will listen (like a celebrity guest) about the problems with their pay, schedule or how the building is staffed. Upper management will not support you, even though you are following the labor plan they put forth. Be prepared to have to "ask" for permission to write someone up, stay open beyond regular hours, hold a teambuilding event, run a special, or host a large scale event. Marketing materials will arrive either the day before or the day after the event, and the corporate team will likely have spent your entire budget on it. The IT systems barely work and constantly go down, and the maintenance teams have no plans in place if a major component of your wind tunnel breaks.

The sales goals are aggressive, and just when you think you might actually hit them, the corporate team will release multiple discounts via e-blast (and not tell you).

Oh, and if you're lucky enough to earn a bonus (the criteria constantly changes), they won't tell you when you're actually going to get the money because they haven't figured out a time frame. You also have to be there for 18 months before you are eligible for a raise, despite being in a location that is outperforming everyone else.

My tenure at iFly can best be described as disappointing.
Pros
Free tunnel time, low cost insurance.
Cons
Conflicting instructions from corporate team, resistance to pay bonuses, zero work/life balance, inability to make decisions at the local level

Run away
General Manager (Current Employee) –  CaliforniaDecember 17, 2016
This company requires you to give up your personal life in order to succeed. You're open 365 days out of the year and PTO is something that you'll never fully use. You will get non-stop emails and last second deadlines. They confuse fast-paced with being unorganized. Compensation is always below average.
Pros
Staff and guest
Cons
Compensation, PTO use, unrealistic goals

Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Ontario, CANovember 28, 2016
iFLY is a great company and has amazing culture. Everyone ther is invested in the sport of Indoor Skydiving and is very passionate to share, coach, and help others to have an amazing experience flying. There isn't anything like it. The staff is friendly and the job can get hectic in sales with all the reservations and groups coming in. in my opinion that is the best part of the job.
Pros
Health care, culture
Cons
incentives
