Amazing Environment with Unlivable Wages
Managment (Former Employee) – Fairbanks, AK – March 6, 2018
A typical day at work involves running around cleaning, customer care, ensuring the staff and the members are satisfied and productive. It is an amazing place to work part time or if you aren't the breadwinner in your home. You cannot top the positive environment of the staff and the majority of the members. Whether you are a fitness nut or not , it is a judge free zone with a lot of encouraging individuals. You also receive a free membership which is impossible to afford unless you make close to 6 figures. Oddly enough with how much a membership costs and the constant upgrading there is little to no compensation. Lower Management is paid just pennies more than regular staff( Its literally a nickle above the minimum wage employees.) There are employees there that have been their for dozens of years and haven't gotten a raise other than when minimum wage has been increased. Upper Management is manipulative and has a way of convincing you to hold 2 or 3 different positions and telling you how crucial you are, even going so far as to give individuals new titles then increasing pay often times less than 25 cents or not at all. They make promises to department heads to compensate or celebrate their team, then never follow through. There is little to no employee appreciation from the company. Overall it is an incredible place to work as long as this is maybe a second job. I would suggest never getting caught up in advancement. You can flip burgers at McDonalds and make more money than a department head at this club. .
