Nice job. Friendly environment.
Technical Customer Support (Current Employee) –  Rosemont, ILMay 9, 2018
I like this job. Very laid back, and as long as you do what you supposed to do, management will not bother you. I like the dress code. They even let you wear jeans!

Remote workers are not very well connected to the corporation
Regional Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Rosemont, ILMarch 15, 2018
I felt overall the company was great to work for, it is a large corporation mentality. Over the years they have gone through many stages so it may have improved since I was with them.

Nothing good to say
Assembly Production Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Ramsey, MNJanuary 29, 2018
Burn out employees with 6-7 day work weeks for more than 3 seasons. I'm not willing to speak more , I don't have too many positive things to say. This is all there is for now
Pros
Some good people

OK company with too many chiefs
Senior Reliability Technician (Current Employee) –  Franklin Park, ILDecember 26, 2017
Too many different departments with non centralized management style. There is a program manager for every thing. A lot of them don't really seem to have a function other than going to meetings.

Easy Job, Great Co-workers....Management Micro-Manage, Moral is low
Technical Customer Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Rosemont, ILDecember 8, 2017
It's a call center job nothing more than that. There are 3 division on the call center floor. Parts, Tech, Specialty. Everyone starts in the same division of parts and then moves on to one of the others divisions depending on how they are working. You would think it is a promotion to move to a new division, but no. There is no raise or benefit changes just an addition in your workload. The entire company treats the call center as the lowest department in the company including the CEO (in my opinion).

Management has its good managers and bad managers. The bad managers will micro-manage you, but not know any of the workload themselves. The good managers end up getting shut down because the bad managers have formed a high school click with upper management and HR. So nothing is ever done to correct their actions.

The job is easy, the pay is low. Numbers are the only thing that matters to the upper management. They claim quality over quantity, but the entire floor knows this is false.

The co-workers on the floor with you are the best part of the job. Since most management doesn't know the workload, you will be looking for help from your co-workers instead.

As of rite now late 2017 the moral on the floor is at an all time low.

Expectation to work 6 days a week for at least 35 weeks per year
DC Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Franklin, ILAugust 25, 2017
The on site gym is fantastic.
The expectation to work a 6 day week without notice prohibits you from having any type of personal life.
They claim that they are concerned about work/life balance, but in truth, the business always comes first.
The HR Department does not back management in regards to the union workforce that files a grievance for just walking around the DC.
Pros
top notch gym
Cons
6 day work week is typical.

Beautiful health club with great equipment
Club Manager (Former Employee) –  Stuart, FLAugust 14, 2017
Life Fitness opened up December 2009 - right after the depression started. There were many other clubs in the immediate area. Although they started out well the owner ended up with financial problems at his other location and turned the Stuart one over to one of his investors who did not have any fitness club experience. It did not last very long.
