I would call our work culture "smoke and mirrors"
Employee (Current Employee) – Ajax, ON – 27 January 2019
Not a place to seek full time employment, pay wages are lower for all departments than they are for other gyms/fitness companies in the local area, because of this staff morale is sort of low and there's a lack of motivation. Quite a demanding work load for low pay.
We are trained and asked specifically to smile and cater to the members even when being verbally demeaned/disrespected and management does not seem to take care of their employees.
Job security is scarcely low and management encourages you to put your name/photo/sell yourself out there to patrons/members. Very uncomfortable and unethical for gym members to seek out lifetime employees through social media after hours but it happens.
Given that lifetime is also an American company fairly new here in Canada, they need to adjust to Canadian culture and laws in terms of respect and privacy for employees. Lifetime is alright if you're looking for a part-time or temporary/seasonal job, but is not a healthy work environment or financially sustainable in the long run.
Free membership, discounts on lifetime food/products.
Pay does not equal what management asks of employees, hard work for low pay. Low morale, Low job security
