Great place to work at, especially, if interested in the active/workout community.
Assistant Shop Manager/Shop Supervisor (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – August 24, 2017
Typical day at work is reading emails, and conducting opening procedures, then moving on with the rest of the business day. Management is interesting, and is more on a one on one, personal level. I learned a lot about developing social skills, and the importance of building and maintaining the work relationships I had with clients, vendors/owners, trainers, etc, and at how it greatly impacted the perception of the brand, especially since the brand is fairly new to the Bay Area. I was able to take a lot of what I have learned here, and apply them to other social relationships, - professional or personal, - and build upon them to improve, or further, myself. Hardest part of the job was getting used to a tremendous amount of downtime, meaning that I would be able to finish tasks that would be one day tasks, in a matter of a couple of hours, and have nothing to do, and this would also be after I have updated paperwork, checked up on clients, etc. I have spent 7+ years with bigger corporate companies, where everything is fast-paced, and so having a lot of downtime was a difficult adjustment, but one that I eventually adjusted to. Most enjoyable part of the job is really spreading the brand philosophy of "Move, Nourish, and Believe," and getting to see how it greatly impacted the clients, and people in the active community, tremendously, and hearing their stories of getting where they were, to where they are now, and really living out their true passions.
A lot of personal one on one with vendors, trainers, owners, and clients.
Small group of staff.
