Personal Trainer/Fitness Instructor (Former Employee) – West Vancouver, BC – 23 February 2019
So many calls ..talk people on the floor make you stressed and too much push..hate this company..hate the management..DO NOT WORK THERE AT ALL!! high turn over and absenteeism..low paid hours ..DO NOT WORK THERE PLEASE.
Long hours.low paid.poor management.so many calls and talks and sales
Poor upper management, do not care about staff or members
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 12 February 2019
Good culture if your lucky to have a good club management team. You can have job security as long as you make them money. There is lots of room for advancement because of high turnover. Upper management only cares about money, they would rather you live in the gym and forget about everything else. If your interested in sales at any cost then apply. If you care about people stay clear of this company.
Can meet some great members and staff before they eventually leave
Membership Representative (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 11 December 2018
As a sales position, we are always attracting people to visit the gym with a work plan of the manager. Because it´s a relaxing place we are always having fun and enjoying our work. Also, you have the option to work out after or before your shift for free in any Steve Nash location.
if you like a sucky job with low pay and poor management, go for it
Childminding Attendant (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 29 October 2018
Steve Nash is a low paying job, with high demands and poor management. In childminding, you will have at least 15 kids, even if the maximum is 10. There is one childminder to 10+ children, including babies. The parents care more about your well-being than management does. You get paid minimum wage, and you won't make even half of what they charge for childminding.
...If you want to get into fitness.... Don't do it here.
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 2 October 2018
I've worked in the fitness industry for 6 years prior to coming on board with Steve Nash Fitness World. They teach you a sales style very similar to high pressure car salesmen. Its unfortunate for young people that want to get into the fitness industry; they become completely tainted after working here. They are forced -- I mean forced to get leads from anywhere, they need to get these leads and make probably over 1000 calls a week in order to hit certain goals to get their bonus.
And if you are a member there, you get harassed like no tomorrow. Sure they have contests and challenges but they use that to get phone numbers of your friends and family... AND they will non-stop call them and even text them to come in for a "free trial" or try to sell a membership to you.
Don't even get me started about the Personal Training sales tactics.
For anyone interested in getting into the fitness industry, trust me this is not the way to do it.
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 26 September 2018
It's all about the company. It's all about exploiting young people keeness. You will learn a lot and when the time comes, move on. Their system isn't fair for the trainers and the members, at least financially, it's highway abuse.
Great place if you are really dedicated in fitness industry
Membership Representative (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 12 September 2018
It can be an exciting place to work at but it can also get exhausted because of the Sales Targets. A lot of employees can get exhausted after a while and the pay doesn't seem to be that great after all.
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 4 September 2018
Purely a money driven company where the directors have lost sight of the customer experience altogether and many members are dissatisfied with the quality of facilities of some of the gym locations. There is far too much pressure on all workers to bring in money on the daily and they are only earning a minimum wage. There is also a divide within the community of workers due to competition with one another rather than being encouraged to work together as a team.
free gym membership, sales people can make decent commissions and PTs in platinum or gold club locations do well
poor hours-front desk, poor pay with ability to make some commission if working long and hard hours
PERSONAL TRAINER (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 22 June 2018
Felt like another number. The min wage aspect was unappealing, yet can make decent money if you can build your business quickly. Lots of pressure for hitting sales goals. The team is great, but, again, it feels like you don't matter except for the dollar value you bring in
Enjoyed staff, didnt enjoy working for the company
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 23 May 2018
Company made me lose my passion for personal training by making it more about the $ ampunt I was bringing in for them rather than the client and their needs. I left to pursue other opportunities and work for myself as an independent trainer. I would not work for this company again
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 7 May 2018
very high expectations like: 1. collecting 100 leads(phone numbers) 2. half of the leads should be hot leads(from members) 3. then make a lot of calls, texts,******bothering people******* 4. make them visit the gym and you try to sell membership (very expensive gym) --------------------------------------------------------------------- You have a monthly sales goal and every month it goes up, if you don't hit, the managers will be the pain in ur... if you sign a contract, it is almost impossible to get rid of it until the end of the one year contract. I worked there for 6 months, every month they hire one or two sales rep but they quit after a few weeks.
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 5 March 2018
You would barely train 2 people a week.. You gotta bring them.. Call and meet them on the floor.. Also do supplement table.. It's a good place to learn and continue education.. But not If u have family
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.
