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

    Pros

    * Gym access, discount on personal training * Good place to network to find a better job! * Fast growth if you fall into their cult and have no life besides it. * OK benefits. That's it!

    Cons

    * LONG HOURS, especially last 4 days of the month which needs to be phased out ASAP * MINIMUM pay - $15K a year base - Some months you won't sell much and you will start negative in case of cancelations inside 90 days of a sale. The pay, hours and job exceptions WILL CAUSE you stress & anxiety. * Terrible, unprofessional managers. * Cut-throat culture - They will get rid of you for any reason. * Unrealistic goals for the horrible pay. * No culture, no friends, lots of drama and politics from fake people. * Company pretends to care but all they care is making the monthly goals, and they will prison you til midnight at the last day of the month. * No heart, no soul, no culture. * Leads don't come in, you have to go out and get them which is difficult. If they come it will be a war zone of objections; "Can't afford", "I want to try". * MICRO-MANAGING - they will go over emails and texts and micro-manage your soul. * HIGH turn over - People realize what they came into and run away. In 4 months of work -3 different GMs, MAs factory - no one lasts.

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

    Pros

    This job forced me to work really hard and be self sufficient. I'm better equipped to work for a corporate company. Great benefits.

    Cons

    The company's success is plateauing. Sales goals are increased by a large amount compared to LY and it just screws the MA over. If you want to do well you have to be slimy and scam new members in a way. The pay off is not worth the long hours.
