I enjoy my job but I feel they are unfair to how they pay there staff we are 3 staff that has the same job description but we all earn different salary, the one who earns the least does more than the one that earns the most. We work over our hours we don't get double pay on a Sunday or public holiday
Pros
Good environment to learn
Cons
Need to move yourself out as soon as experience is gained

I love fitness because it gives me more confidence with seemingly everything in life. There is something about walking around looking and feeling fit, that makes me feel like I can take on the world. ... I am absolutely passionate about inspiring people and making them feel that they are the best version of themselves. I have a natural ability to send out positive energy and attract like minded people to what I believe in.
Pros
Doing what I love
Cons

I worked for the company for a period of about 5 years as a yoga instructor. The hourly rate was low and it used to go up by R5 per year, yes, R5. I had a very good attendance in my classes and I was very reliable as they sent me all over the show to provide yoga classes but I got very little in return.

I worked for Virgin Active for almost 15 years however my salary was lower than R10.000. The reason I stayed so long is their working culture, fun activities, chances to grow as they provide staff with training.

Virgin Active management is poor, they will show you the nicer benefits of the company and tell you that you'll be trained properly and next thing you are on your own and told you're about to lose your job

I love working at the gym just some things you have to sacrifice because we cannot change everything especially the weekend especially Sunday in and some holidays you find that you using your own transportation is better but public transportation is not available. But besides that it is nice to work in the gym.

Virgin is a great company to work for realy they look after there sales staff and incentives good . Even there benefits are brilliant but they need to look into the constant turnover of staff who is the problem and stop blaming consultants for thing managers did wrong stop dismissing people left rite and centre without getting to the coure of the problem.

Hours were bad. Couldn't balance professional and personal lifestyle. Always left work hours after my shift ended. Money was really good though. Always earned really well if you work hard for your commission.

It can be fun at times when interacting with members and doing classes. There is very lively and vibrant energy on the floor. Overtime is never paid and management isn't very useful. Pay isn't great.

They only care about the company and nothing else, Salary is a disgrace especially for those working with the kids some employees is working there for over 15 years and their salary is still below R5000.00. People sacrifice alot by working shifts starting 4:30am till 21:30pm but their efforts dont get recognised nor appreciated
