Member Services Specialist/former advisor (Current Employee), Birmingham, ALDecember 27, 2013
Pros: free club membership, discount on services.
Cons: compensation and health care benefits.
As a member specialist I work directly with members of Life Time to answer questions about their membership, their monthly dues and the entire facility. I have learned to be patient with upset members, allowing me grow in my management skills. I have to make decisions based on the benefits for the member and club. My upper management is very supportive – more... of my decisions and have allowed me more responsibilities to grow. My co-workers are wonderful because they are full of energy, like myself, and we have an interest in fitness, wellness and enjoy working with others. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping others, seeing they appreciate my help and finding solutions to problems. The most difficult part of my job is I do not make much money and I can not afford to stay at the income I am receiving. I have been disappointing about the health care benefits as well. As a female I need and have to have an excellent health care option with employment. – less

Enjoyable starter position
Senior Esthetician (Current Employee), Woodstock, GADecember 23, 2013
Pros: relaxing environment
Cons: to slow and not challenging enough
I really enjoy working for LTF as it is a laid back environment and very professional looking. The staff is amazing and supportive. The pay would be good at 50% if one could be busy enough to get off of the hourly rate and onto commission. However this location is extremely slow and the chances of going commission are very small unless you are very – more... part time. The job requires basic facials and mild peels. Great position for a early career esthetician but not challenging enough for an experienced professional. – less

Very unorganized
Member Engagement Adviser (Current Employee), Troy, MIDecember 22, 2013
Pros: full benefits and 401k
Cons: no breaks
Overall very poor management. The position involves selling memberships however they expect you to do more than what you really are told to do. The security of the job is based on your quota and if you do not make your quota after 2 months getting into the position you will be fired without any notice.

Phlebotomist
Phlebotomist (Current Employee), traveling phlebotomistDecember 20, 2013
Pros: great coworkers, good pay, flexable days
Cons: no breaks, protable trailers may not be close to restrooms.
I enjoy working for Lifetime Fitness. The wellness teams of personal trainers are great people to work with. It is a fun ease and enjoyable job
It fits my into my schedule perfectly. Management trusts that we are able to be self sufficient with very little supervision.

The most enjoyable part is meeting the public. And knowing I can put the client – more... at ease who have phobias to blood draws. The worst part would have to be when someone faints. – less

Amazing place to develop and grow
Membership Advisor (Former Employee), Garland, TXDecember 11, 2013
Pros: free gym membership, benefits day of employment, great atmosphere, growing company
Cons: pressure to deliver sales quotas
Lifetime's atmosphere is a great one to work. The workers are genuine and willing to help and management cares about all employee's. Each gym is different but the sales culture is stays the same which is one of high integrity, reliable performance, and unsurpassed customer satisfaction.

Performance Based Fitness Company with no succession planning and internal change managment issues
Club Improvement Group Specialist/ Analyst (CIG) (Current Employee), Chanhassen MNNovember 26, 2013
Pros: remote opportunites as well set structure
Cons: change managment issues
Experienced in Retention and trained in LEAN Process my daily roles consist of :

building and maintaining templates to forecast budget, detect risk, and identify areas of improvement.
-Maintain support structure to the locations encouraging continuous improvement.
-Project Manager piloting club performance improvement vs. Company Average.
As a Trained – more... Lean Six Sigma Black Belt deep diving into data to create advanced questions.

During recent years while in education identified serious change management issues within the organization.
This also acts as the hardest part of the job we typically hire from within so educational advancement isn't a focus like other organizations and industries.

My most enjoyable is providing a "Healthy Way of Life" to the local communities. – less

The company lacks integrity
Manager (Former Employee), Centreville, VANovember 26, 2013
Pros: free gym membership if you use it
Cons: lack of integrity from the company
Everyone expects everyone to kiss up to the person above them and try to get noticed.

Getting a management team that isn't lazy and is a hassle.

Expectations from Corp are mostly ridiculous. They lie to you to get you in to the company and set you up to fail.

Give you a performance base compensation that is not based on your performance, but rather – more... the performance of the entire club. Makes it almost impossible to meet.

Managers are expected to be on-call 24/7 with no boundaries.
The amount of inappropriate discussions that happen during meetings in completely unprofessional. – less

SALE PRODUCT
Personal Trainer (Former Employee), Cary, NCNovember 20, 2013
Pros: benefits
Cons: 110% commission
SALE, supplements, devices, personal training! Meet your quota you're fine because ADH is HAPPY if they meet their quota. You get a "great job" nothing more... they get a bonus! You fall behind your quota, you're under performance watch list. If this was a "Healthy Way Of Life Company" Training department is very stressful. More sale less training. – more... GREAT Trainers (coworkers) not the company. – less

High Stress Work Enviornment
Life CafĂ© Team Leader (Former Employee), Centreville, VANovember 12, 2013
Cons: high stress enviornment
Management had to deal with a high turnover rate, so the replacements they hired were hastily approved for the job, which compounded the stress-related problems already apparent in the workplace. I hope management was able to hire more competent individuals since I left. However, this job forced me to learn how to multitask, and how to properly deal – more... with irate customers. – less

Not Results Driven.
