Janitor (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 28 December 2018
It was a decent experience.I would recommend it, sometimes it might get annoying because of the gym members who constantly make your job harder by leaving garbage everywhere. This job requires constant moving around
Free Gym Membership and Friendly Managers
The place is always needs constant cleaning because the gym members treat the place like trash
Management and corporate can be terrible, other coworkers are a joy and make it fun to work their
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 4 November 2018
Typical work day is making phone calls, updating billing information, greeting members as they enter and leave What I've learned is how to be a key holder, work with people in different situations, improve customer services skills, and be tolerable with bad managers Most enjoyable part of the job is the great coworkers that make it worth while
Free membership, access to every club, can bring two guests
Operations / Front Desk / Customer Service (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 8 October 2018
I did not like working there. I did enjoy the customers/ members. 4:50am openings, min. wage with no increase, sales staff also there which is more personality conflicts. Always gossiping going on with all the staff. Managers come in late all the time, being a poor example.
staff come and go regularly due to managers. Free membership at all LAF's.
Starting your 'calls' to customers who owe, at 8am. Only $5 commission on 3-5 hours of calls.
Personal Trainer/Fitness Instructor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 14 January 2019
Worst job I've ever worked for. super high turnover so you never see the same faces almost weekly. manangement likes to micro manage and are extremely unprofessional work life balance? no they expect you to do nothing but work Management beyond the people who work in the clubs are USELESS oh and no lunch room, no microwave
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 13 August 2018
This employer had an awful operations manger who after 6 hours of training gave extreme responsibility and then punished when you didn't do what was the standard even though they hadn't taught you. The amount of times I had to deal with extremely angry customers who had canceled their memberships and were still getting charged was incredible. There was broken equipment relating to disability access that was broken for months and never fixed, the gym was not equipped with disabled friendly doors either. this employer would schedule you shifts up to 24 hours before with no notice and take shifts from you up to 24 hours before with no notice.
MEMBERSHIP SALES (Former Employee) – Aurora, ON – 10 August 2018
Working at LA Fitness, it really taught me about all the different types of people, and more importantly, their stories. I would have never thought I'd hear the things I did before working for that company. Learning what really drives people and what is making them commit to a life change is inspiring. Working at LA Fitness I even got myself to lose 40 pounds. I'm not sure if this is across the board but at my particular location everyone felt like a family. The idea of prospecting was a little hard at first. However as soon as I got into the motions it became easier and easier to generate new leads.
Fitness Director (Former Employee) – stamford,CT – 14 June 2018
very demending work long hours but cast are great guest are very friendly. very high expectation to reach sales goal, as a fitness director your responsible for the trainers as well as members which can very overwhelming at times
Membership Coordinator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 March 2018
Unless you're from the area that you work in, getting leads is almost impossible. Management never helps you when people take leads and company's standards are through the roof. Minimum 50 calls per day and nearly no one picks up your calls and YOU get in trouble for making too many calls and booking no appointment. Pay structure is dumb, commission or hourly only. If you barely make over your commission you pretty much worked for minimum wage. This job expects you to have no life, 6 days a week 9 hour shifts. Horrible job.
Custodial Worker (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 7 May 2018
Each day was full of positive individuals with a healthy attitude towards society. The fellow employees were very helpful as well as communicative allowing a positive experience when returning the following day.
Assistant General Manager (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 February 2018
In Sales Dept. at LA Fitness it is a revolving door as a minimum shift is 9 hours (1 unpaid hour for lunch included in there - obligatory) to 11 - hours. 5 days/ week for Sales Councils which is ok; however 6 days/ week for managers. You may feel micromanaged, if you look at it that way however I always liked the accountability aspect of that! I wish to be known as a professional that is productive 90% of the time, therefore, having management look at how I spend my time there worked for me. If you are a sleeper (the military term, not having to do with slumber) but if you like to hide and just warm a chair then you may not like it.
Master Trainer (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 1 April 2018
LA Fitness gives you the opportunity to pursue and engage your passion for fitness. As a trainer it is an extremely rewarding experience. Being able to see your clients achieve there goals makes the job worth it.
