Overall excellent work experience. You will need to be prepared to work 10-14 hr work days, weekends, evenings, and holidays. Unlikely you’ll feel comfortable using vacation time in your first year, or taking a full lunch break. You won’t have two days off back to back. You’ll feel pressure to arrive early and leave very late every day. Work on days off.
Advancement opportunities, good pay, good benefits, amazing culture
Highly competitive and stressful day to day, become a work zombie
Lifetime was my first job back to work after having my babies...I fell in love with the facility and child care center instantly. It was beautiful! I was lucky to have been a team member turned into preschool teacher. Truly loved my time working there, time to move on.
Free Membership, discounts
You can find almost every sport at lifetime, the club is built to promote a healthy life and you see that theme emanate in every aspect of the club. They have coaches for every sport to help guide you. Everyone is very friendly and professional.
Free Membership, free food, Club Promotions
I wish their were more clubs all over Canada.
The best part of working at Lifetime is all of the different people I got to meet. As a Lifeguard/Swim Instructor I was constantly meeting new people, which is always fun because teaching has always been fun for me and I've always loved swimming. The hardest part of the job was the interview, it was a competitive interview to say the least but the job itself is very easy to understand and execute
The management here is the absolute worst. They are like a bunch of high school students running around the playground telling on one another like a bunch of sissy's. This place is a constant revolving door and is loosing huge money at this location. Absolute horrid horrid place. Avoid at all costs. I wish I never even accepted this job.
Besides the free membership for the gym....this is the worst company I have been employed with. This is an American company that has zero knowledge of Canadian business. The loses that their Canadian locations take are enough to show that they are being management by buffoons. Egotistical and "mens club" are terms I would use to describe the Area Managers.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time working in LifeTime Mississauga's Cafe until they decided to change management and policies. My coworkers were young and energetic about the job, and honestly the reason I stayed for so long. Though the benefit of the gym membership is tempting, the salary and management is troubled.
Unstable Work Hours, Poor Direction from Head Office
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Life Time?
I can honestly say that I've wasted my time here. Junior managers all around. Pay was not as promised during interview process. Management pushes you to sell anything under the sun to make money. Very dirty industry.
Poor Pay and Hours
I worked in the spa and we had a great team and manager, but for as big of a company as Lifetime Fitness is, the wages were awful and not at all what an upscale spa should be paying their employees. It makes you feel unappreciated and undervalued. As for upper management (corporate), you're only a number to them.
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
Only focused on $$ and not on helping the members, very selective and can take more than half of your money and do so many shady deals. Would never ever work with a company like this and how they treat there workers and no real perks.
don't really care about workers
IF you can survive her for more than 2 years as a manager , you are ready for anything. Really helps you learn how important work life balance truly is.
I loved working at Lifetime Fitness! It was absolutely the place where you meet new people, discover different cultures and how others interact in their everyday life and forcefield! I learned new things about my body, mind and spirit while working here! Due to family circumstances I had to cease and desist my time at this wonderful place, but I would definitely work again in an atmosphere such as this!!
Good people, Amazing Benefits, Amazing place
No bad review
If you enjoy fitness and providing a great service to your clients, working here will help you connect to the motivated individuals that will make you enjoy your day! The clientele are so generous and grateful for you to help them reach their goals. Something that will not be so much for you is the management. Lifetime has a growing turn over rate of personal trainers due to the inconsistency of management. I was not impressed with how they treated their personal trainers and definitely was not impressed with favoritism that was shown. There was always a sense of insecurity of the job because management never seemed impressed nor supportive. Overall disliked my time there are Lifetime, but enjoyed the members and their stories and personalities.
free gym membership, scheduling times
inconsistent policies, sharks
I had a great time working with the management at Jackson Creek. I wish I had been able to stay on at the end of my term. I oversaw the meals from start to finish and helped adjust the menus for our resident's needs. The staff genuinely cared about the residents and it showed in their day to day interactions with them. I found it difficult to keep my focus on the quality of meals while needing to correct or keep things going on the paperwork side of things as I cooked the majority of the meals. I had great support from my boss.
not enough time in the day
