Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – North Vancouver, BC – 15 November 2017
A typical day at Steve Nash consists of gathering new leads , making a minimum 100 phone calls and booking appointments.
For someone seeking a career in sales this a good step in the door as you learn how to network , maintain and grow your business , how to follow sale systems.
However as much as the company is growing at the end of the day it is still a corporation left in charged with a manipulative executive team who forces you to give up your personal life as they preach about "opportunity" to move up within the company in which they abuse you mentally and emotionally until you either quit or get fired.
This is a company who could not care less about its members or employees .. To say they would prefer to see more dollars in there pocket would be an understatement.
Free Gym Membership, Discounted Personal Training Sessions
No work life balance, dishonorable executive team, company politics, sales approach
FRONT DESK/ MEMBERSHIP REP (Current Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 7 February 2018
Steve Nash is a great place to work especially if you have an interest the fitness industry. Customer service is a must when working with any department, you also need be very organized. Being that I am a very active person I love being able to come to work and learn something new about fitness. Well working at Steve Nash I have learnt about self confidence, office admin, and having to have self discipline.
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 13 December 2017
No job security, poor wage, minimal hours, high expectations. The insanely high turnover rate of the staff at any given Steve Nash location is indicative of some major issues that never seem to be addressed.
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 16 August 2017
helping clients is the most rewarding aspect of the job and interacting with many talented, dedicated coworkers. the culture promotes having fun while at work, but it's an absolute soul-suck sometimes. they are quite demanding when it comes to hitting sales targets and booking appointments so if you have time to invest in that and no life outside of the gym, it might not be so bad for you. there isn't much coaching from the top down so it's mainly stress to hit targets propagating from one level to the next. not all managers are terrible, but there are a few that are absolutely stellar.
gym usage, discount on personal training sessions, staff discounts on athletic wear
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 13 July 2017
I've worked at Steve Nash for over a year, and it was a fantastic experience. Very energetic work environment and you get to set your own schedule which is great for me. Though there is no base salary and all the work hours depends on your sales. So not the most stable job but if you are great at sales then the salary is good.
Contractor (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 8 March 2017
Management did not listen to advice and was treated poorly due to office politics, despite it is only a 3 months contract. Experienced first hand how over 5 people left during my short stay and surprised by the turnover rate.
fast paced work environment with amazing co-workers
Front Desk Receptionist (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 8 January 2017
Typical day at work: Checking in guests Answering phones Logging maintenance Data entry
I learned how to become more proficient in my people skills and about how important fitness is and how it can change lives. Management is amazing!! my GM Nicole Friesen is the most fun, inspiring, and goal orientated woman I have ever met. Co-workers are so awesome, they are always pushing me to be better and I enjoy the time I get to spend with them; and get to know them better. The hardest part of my job is taking complaints, and members trying to cancel their memberships when they are still in a contract. The most enjoyable is talking to the regular members as they check in and spending my time with my team!
free gym membership, discounts on personal training and supplements.
Very outgoing atmosphere and an opportunity to grow within the company.
Front Desk and Membership Representative (Former Employee) – South Surrey, BC – 3 January 2017
This gym was great for an energetic work environment, but not so great when it came to the overall management and coworkers. In my opinion, working at Steve Nash is a job where you can have fun and make a career out of your passion. Yet you'll always feel stuck because of management and the people you're surrounded by.
Free gym membership, Benefits, Perfect amount of hours, Commission
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 28 December 2016
The management sucks, the company is very unorganized. Forgot having sick days they expect you to be on your death bed otherwise you need to come into work. I had a bad throat infection could barely talk and they made me come in. Just ridiculous. The manager was very rude and was only nice to his favorites made me do his work for him at times because he was too lazy too. Do not work for this company they pay the worst wages for the amount of work you have to do.
Membership Representative (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 18 December 2016
Like many jobs, working at Steve Nash has it's ups and downs, the expectations however are stacked against those at the bottom of the totem pole. While there is generally a strong team atmosphere, its structure is such that those making the least money have to do the most leg work in order to achieve expectations.
Free gym membership, solid team atmosphere
Not for everybody, high expectations and little help to reach them.
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Downtown Vancouver – 5 November 2016
I really enjoyed my time working at Steve Nash in bussy downtown location. Your typical day consists of greeting members, some retail, charging members for dues/collections, writing reports to managers about the overall sales/operations of the day. If a potential customer walks in you re direct them to the sales associate and so on. The culture was great ! You really have to have team skills.
Free membership, my manager was great and very supportive, growing opportunities as Steve Nash tries to get its managers from the inside.
Payment wasn't enough unless you collect lots of money and make great comission
Membership Representative (Current Employee) – North Vancouver, BC – 1 August 2016
It was a good learning experience, getting to interact with people everyday also the staff was great and so friendly and great. Just was a stressful sales job because the company needs you collect leads and sell memberships in a pushy way. They give you daily and monthly goals that are unrealistic ( depending on the manager). The North Vancouver location is super old and have been saying they'll do renovations however they never have or will. So selling a membership can be quite hard because there's so many newer and cheaper gyms.
Free membership, Discount on Personal Training
Daily and Monthly Goals, Harassing memberships everyday for prospects, Bad Mangement ( super common of turn arounds of stuff)
Salesperson (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 29 July 2016
not a good place to work. steer clear. leaders are bullies, they are extremely unprofessional yelling and swearing at staff, very poor management which starts at the top and trickles down, no culture, employees are not treated well. do not work here.
Na (Former Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 27 April 2016
Don't expect days off. Your work load will be unmanageable because turn over rate is extremely high so you will be doing a work load that not is manageable for one person. There is absolutely no job security either.
Child Minder (Current Employee) – Port Coquitlam, BC – 20 November 2015
Typical day is opening the daycare, filling out paper work.Greeting parents and children. Facilitate activities and rules. working with children as young as 3 months to twelve years of age. Cleaning after the children and closing the daycare.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 6 December 2013
Overall a fast growing company with room for advancement. However, the company lacks culture, job security, and competent management. If you're looking for a short term gig to gain experience and use that as leverage for a position with a different company then go ahead an apply, other than that, steer clear.
