    I worked at Crunch Fitness full-time

    Pros

    Free gym membership, that's it

    Cons

    The company is very dodgy. They do not treat their employees well at all and there is no career progression avenues. Pay is also quite low for all employees. Employee turnover is very, very high, even in management. Senior "management" will quite often will make sexist jokes/comments in meetings. The rest of the people they have put around them are just lacky "yes" people who are most likely afraid of losing... their job if they show any type of autonomy or opinion.

    I worked at Crunch Fitness part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Free gym membership - Customers and staff friendships

    Cons

    - Poor management (high turn around) - Loss of company values - Will feel replaceable and unappreciated

    Advice to Management

    Need to remember that your customers are not just another 'number' and that your staff matter. The companies values are what made the gym stand out, now it is just like every other money hungry gym corporation.

    I worked at Crunch Fitness part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some people on the team Free membership Good gym equipment The nice members Good shifts when it is busy Friendships and bonds made due to suffering through management

    Cons

    Receptionist, janitor, heavy weightlifter (due to hourly floor walks) Low wage Unprofessional, awful management Favouritism Numbers-based, employees seen as numbers rather than human beings Must pay for uniform jackets No rewards system, only for favourites who get the good shifts

    Advice to Management

    Head office - look to immediate GMs as an example of where the business will go in the future. Appreciate employees for their strengths and work ethic, not ability to sell or how extroverted they are. Please, please implement some policies on workplace behaviour and perhaps seek potential full time Membership Officers so employee turnover isn’t so high. Good management = happy employees.
