    I worked at Equinox Fitness full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free membership, employee discount, the facilities are usually well maintained

    Cons

    Spa is treated like an afterthought. Membership Advisors who are meant to promote all aspects of the facility regularly ignore the spa from their tours. Front Desk staff are undertrained and unable to perform their basic functions.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed my co-workers, the free membership, the shampoos haha The people there were nice

    Cons

    The problem is the amount of sales tactics one must use in order to get clients. You might as well do it outside of here to get more money. Equinox takes a huge portion of the money.

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

    Pros

    Gym Membership Meet great people both co-workers and members

    Cons

    Not flexible with schedules Pay is unfair. You get an hourly (min. wage) or your commission (about 20% each session) you DO NOT get both. So on slow weeks you'll be getting min. wage for your sessions. Poor management, they play favorites Also they expect you to be professional but don't even attempt in the slightest to do so themselves. Lack of accountability Lot's of gossip as well

    Former Employee - Licensed Massage Therapist in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Seriously, it all depends on the management. The management at my spa location were generally laid back and really nice people. I liked working there. They let you do what YOU do as a therapist, which is refreshing for a corporate company. And the tips were great at the location I was at bc it was a wealthy area, so it made the job worth it. It’s all about the location and managers; that determines whether you’ll enjoy the job like I did. Also, I loved that we were allowed to do our job as body work practitioners/healers and they left the sales-pitches to front desk. It allowed clients to trust us. (Which is why the new BodyLab 360s left a sour taste in my mouth because it really is just one long corporate sales pitch unfortunately...)

    Cons

    -Unless you’re full-time (which would be a lot for a therapist), the part-time benefits aren’t great. -BODY LAB 360. The worst corporate joke on both therapists and clients. I don’t know a single therapist who felt it was helpful/liked it. The spa was also SO much better before it was renamed “The body lab” and these complimentary Body Lab 350s became required...
