Fun members

They are just interested in one opinion of their own.... They don't care about you, you are just a robot to them... And when they are done with you they will spit you out

Pros

None

Cons

No breaks

They can create a more healthy work environment

Just plain lack of integrity from senior management, in that they tend to manipulate the work due processes putting other employees in compromising positions

Demotivating

It's depends. You gain lots of face to face interactions with members. You learn how to deal with different types of people and you learn more about yourself as you find yourself in different situations. Management is okay, most managers are not experienced.The work place culture is dependent on your manager. The hardest part of the job is that you have to motivate yourself more than anything. Giving your members magic moments

Pros

Free membership for yourself and one other person

Cons

Long hours. No growth. The salary. No bonuses

Unorganized

Management was unfairly treating people, favoritism, lack in training. Staff members were being under paid for long hours, organized shifts, disrespectful treatment from admin.

Challenging and active environment

Having a typical day at work will be not having a busy day with few members accessing the club few queries to attend to. Everyday at planet fitness is a learning day u gat to learn different things from different people such as how u supposed to greet meet and talk.management should be fair at all times.

Fun workplace

Great place to work. It is fast paced which helps makes the shifts go by quickly. The most enjoyable part of this job for me is the great group of people that you work with every day and also the work benefits are very good. (discounts at certain stores) But, the minimum wage rate is too low for the amount of hours worked.

Fun, just long hours

Working at Planet Fitness was a great experience. I met awesome people whom I will never forget. The hours is just impossible, upon that was the gym far from me, so driving girl alone was a bit risky.

Cons

Long hours

Dull and no growth within the company

The company has to give young people a chance to learn things and grow within the company matters not the experience. The management needs to be productive and listen to every concern of each employee. they also need to review employees salary looking at their performance not their skin colour

Pros

Exercise for free

Cons

Long hours
Was this review helpful?

Planet fitness is a company that hires according to the qulifications for a specific job, there is non discrimination regarding ethnic group or race

The company requires people to work shifts sometimes very late working hours but it was manageable, they pay fair salaries and their salaries are paid at the time when they are due. The management listens and despond to the workers needs. Duties are manageable because training is provided before one tarts working at a certain position.

Pros

Incentives for good perfomances

Cons

Very late and Very earky working hours.

Serious about Business

Dealt with different and regular members to gym, learnt excellent Switchboard skill and great Customer service skill. Took orders from management and had great relation with colleagues and trainers. The hard part of the job was standing form the time you get to work but got used to it as time went on. The most enjoyable part was interacting with guest making them feel welcome and solving problems.

Pros

Get togethers

Cons

Standing for long hours
