Lifeguard and Swimming Instructor in Brookfield, WI
Easy work, intense culture
Interview process is lengthy. There is over 60 hours of online training just on company culture, before you do any online training for your job specific duties and then the in-person training. Culture is very intense. It is a country club feel for a gym. Customers are always put first in every situation regardless of what is the outcome.
Supervisor in Westwood, MA
The job I held (Kids Academy Supervisor) is more ideal for a college student or recent college graduate. It offered hourly flexibility and offered only minimum wage which is not ideally livable salary. I, however, held a full time job and worked part time as a supervisor. It was hard when I would get sick or need time off to be able to find coverage. The system for taking time off, especially last minute in case of emergency or being sick was impractical. A team member would have to reach out to other team members to get coverage and often that was impossible to find for any number of reasons. Said employees would then not go in for shift because they were unable and then there was no one to cover for them.
Swim Instructor in Parker, CO
Poor management, good environment
The interview process is lengthy and it takes about a month to complete the process. Many under qualified employees, management and below. Friendly coworkers who are eager to help.
Personal Trainer & Weight Loss Specialist in Rochester Hills, MI
Commission Based, Too Many Hours
While every location is different, the Life Time that I worked at had phenomenal management, although I heard that this was not the case before the recent management shakeup. There are two shifts: the morning shift (6 AM - 3 PM), or the evening shift (12 PM - 9 PM). New hires usually start with the evening shift because that is “supposedly” the most profitable.
I would not recommend working at Life Time for the following reason: this is a sales job. You will not be given clients, and it is your job to explain to a client why they need to pay upwards of $80 - $120 / hour for training. It is extremely difficult to get clients, and you have to go above and beyond. I was one of the fastest growing trainers at my location, but the tole it takes on you is exhausting. You constantly feel like you are beginning for clients to take you up as their trainer, and are under extreme pressure to keep those clients while you train with them.
When you leave work, you don’t leave work. Expect texts, calls, and emails from clients on the weekends and during your off time if you want to exceed. This isn’t to hate on Life Time — you can have success there, but the company will pretty much take as much money from you as they can.
LifeCafe Supervisor Lifetime Fitness in Vestavia Hills, AL
Good atmosphere, but be wary of management.
The Lifetime Fitness LifeCafe definitely has the atmosphere you're looking for after a fulfilling workout. As a part of the staff, you're trained on what supplements, recovery plans, and protein powders are most appropriate for each customer and how to sell them. Aside from that and the level of trust placed in you by your co-workers, there's not much else to look forward to as a supervisor in Lifetime Fitness.
The company puts an emphasis on forward growth, but if the manager/assistant manager have no intention of climbing up the ladder in the facility themselves or promoting their staff, the task of the supervisor is to simply accept additional responsibility without much real benefit aside from a small pay raise.
