      Pros

      Free membership 40% off training, retail, spa sessions Relaxed dress code Great people!

      Cons

      Most positions that you will make a career out of provide little to no work/life balance. At the club level you will always have to work weekends, late nights, and will have long hours. Time off and taking care of yourself is encouraged company wide, but when coming to action it is frowned upon. The only time it will be a non-issue is if your club management really believes in it themselves. It’s best to work for Equinox if you are single and don’t have familial obligations.

      Pros

      The sales training was amazing. I felt very appreciated and my GM & RSM made sure I was all set to go! I loved connecting with different potential members & current members. Amazing place to work, I relocated so I had to quit :/ It was amazing that I got to experience working out with a personal trainer & experience the club. It made it way easier to sell!

      Cons

      Maybe the hours? But honestly, it was worth the long hours.

      Terrible, Simply terrible!

      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.
