      Pros

      Free gym membership with one guest

      Cons

      -40 calls, 10 new leads, 4 new appointments everyday -they train you to lie to customers to get the most expensive membership out of them -they spend 0 money on marketing and want you to go outside marketing for 2 hours a day with no direction -very little training -VPs micro manage and create a highschool atmosphere -RVPS are out of touch with reality and what goes on in the club -not a true management position, you have to be front of the line customer service -not enough staffing -13 hour days -they want you at spend your own money on marketing and uniform -too many conference calls which all a wastes of time -company cares zero about you -everytime you request vacation time or off time it is the end of the world -3 department structure is old and outdated -they train to lie to people in the interview and manipulate them “sell the job” to create an unrealistic amount of money you can make -Anyone can go online and fill out a guest pass then we are left telling them guest passes aren’t activated here -company focuses on selling with fear and finesse when they should be focusing on selling with good rapport and honesty
