PERSONAL TRAINER (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 January 2019
World Health is locally owned and operated, however it operates as though they are publicly traded.
Unfortunately, they miss a huge opportunity to be a part of the community by focusing on the number of memberships rather than the members they already have. I have asked specific questions on "anonymous" questionnaires (and have put my name on it to not be ambivalent) to not get any answers.

Location I worked at had very low traffic so you were pretty much resorting to telemarketing all day, no room for growth and with high staff turnover , you're expected to work 50+ hrs per week. Only plus was free membership.
Reception Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 July 2018
Your expected to exceed the expectations with out any rewards or incentives. I worked Recpection and the best part getting to know the regulars. There are many complaints to which managers do nothing about and it is easily reflected in other areas of the club and the company The pay is very very minimal for the work load as well the extra normal asked to be done and there is no hope for advancement The only pro is a free gym membership
Long hours, called in on days off, angry members due to managers

The people that you work with really make this job special! Good way to make an impact on peoples health and lifestyle. The management is friendly and the sales part isn't a huge push all the time which is wonderful.

Upon getting the job I was excited for the amount of face to face contact I was promised between guests and myself. Then reality set in and my day to day was making 60+ phone calls a day, following a cold script. Management was incredibly two-faced and was never there to help. If you're the type of person who likes sitting in an office desk making repetitive phone calls for hours and being tossed around by management, then this is the perfect job for you.

Working at World Health was a fantastic experience. The staff and management were friendly, approachable, and down to earth, all while maintaining professionalism. They always had 'team meetings' which involved some fun activity or sport which was a big plus. I got to work-out at work!! I'm still great friends with most of them now. The job requirements were clear and the training was extensive - the only draw back for me (as a fitness consultant, essentially sales person) was that the money wasn't great. The money has the potential to be good relative to your sales, but with how the system was set up, it was very difficult/borderline impossible to make the amount of sales you would need in order to start earning decent money. However some old co-workers have told me that the pay structure has changed since i left, so who knows!
Overall, World Health is a positive and energetic environment, and they treat employees wonderfully. Would recommend. :)
Perfect job for customer service experience and learning multitasking
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 12 December 2017
Typical day is answering phones, dealing with member issues, scanning members in (on a busy day, you'll probably scan in up to 300 members during your shift), signing in guests, and doing the paperwork of the other positions in the club. It can get pretty hectic during busy hours because you are multitasking phone calls, while scanning members in, while printing off receipts for those who have a trainer, while having to sign in a guest, etc., all at the same time. Hours are only flexible if you have coworkers who are willing to work with you around your schedule. If they can't then your SOL because you're responsible for your shift. Only reason I haven't quit yet is because it's convenient while I'm in school and for the free gym membership.
Free gym membership, discount on personal training
Inflexible work hours, not very good pay for the amount of work we do
It may be for someone people but it definitely is not for me
Fitness Consultant (Current Employee) – Edmonton – 16 November 2017
The job is very repetitive, make phone calls everyday at least 50-100, find people to sign up, organize the gym and fill people's water bottle. Worse enough management does not care about you only sees you as a name and phone number machine. You only see a reward if they think you deserve it. The staff there are very two faced. But you get a free membership and benefits after 6 months. And the members were awesome. Also be aware when they hire you they don't ask when you avaviable and when they do hire you and you can't work a certain day they make a big deal

Loved working at World Health. Management was awesome and helped teach me a lot. I grew and moved up within the company towards where I wanted to get. The culture is great. I have some life long friends from there.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 July 2017
I loved working at world health. When i first started there I had a wonderful manager ! She was absolutely amazing and encouraging. I loved meeting and building bonds with the clientele. The hardest part of the job was dealing with angry members but the best part of the job was building relationships with the regulars.
