Equinox is an amazingly fun culture. There's not much better than working in a fitness club. However, it's an extremely numbers-driven job with really, really high expectations, and even when you get a sale, you're not guaranteed commissions, which is unfortunate. You constantly feel like you're fighting against the numbers and the corporate offices. If the base were more than $12,000/year, that might not be too terrible, but our base salary is not even remotely livable, so when you don't hit your numbers or don't get all your commission, it's sometimes hard to live.For that reason, there's a lot of turnover at the bottom. That being said, if you stay long enough, take the risk, and build a business, you can make A LOT of money, but that certainly requires time and practice in the position.
Sidenote: the c-suite of the company is amazing. Very few companies can say their VP and CFO know the names of every sales associate in the company nation-wide, and we can. Our managers are amazing, because they've all been in our position, and for that reason can be really supportive and helpful.
