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

    Pros

    gym membership, but even that's very limited

    Cons

    everything else - no support/trainings/meetings, no raises/incentives, VERY limited benefits that are constantly changing, no respect from management, same uniform shirt for 3 years... literally the worst company I've ever worked for in the past 15 years that I've been employed with fitness centers

    Pros

    Free gym membership, discounts on personal training, genuinely cool coworkers

    Cons

    Literally zero regard for anything you do outside of Equinox. Wouldn't give me bereavement time for my grandfather's funeral - as if I could plan to request that time off a month in advance, obviously you don't plan for death. I also work a 9-5 job and they tried to give me excessive hours on top of this giving me 12 hour days to work which is unreasonable.

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

    Pros

    Free gym membership if you ever find the time to utilize it.

    Cons

    Employees are overworked with many tasks. Breaks are extremely short and unpaid for a company that does phenomenal financially. Management ignores requests to find solutions for balancing workload. You get tasked with work that should be done elsewhere and by someone else within the company. Biased and unreasonable management. Former work experience apparently means nothing to them. Company makes sure you don't go above overtime so they save money.
