Everyone from Management to the cleaning staff hated the company and didn't want to work for the company and talked down on it constantly. It created a harsh environment where everyone felt miserable. They don't award you in any way for going above and beyond but then expect that of you regularly.
Support from management
It is very much so an anxious environment filled with fear whenever the owners come around, instead of fostering growth and creativity amongst their employees they shoot them down repeatedly
They expect teamwork amongst their hourly employees but do not support it. There was no giving back to the employees in any way for covering, or working on holidays etc.
Freedom to work independently
While left in closets disguised as offices you are alone much of the time but the phone constantly rings off the hook so they are up your butt about what you are doing
Never. Not once
Overall compensation for your work
You do not get any holiday off work. The gym is open 365 days a year therefore you need to use one of the 5 pto days that you get after working for 1 year to take off for the 5 major holidays
Office / Work Environment
Outdated computer system that constantly broke down. Conditions themselves, my office was the file closet which had no heat. When asked if we could rearrange they hastily said no.
Not at all. The owners are stuck in the 80s and remain that way in club design and staffing
They had me doing 50 hours a week, while in school. I was working 7 days a week. It was terrible.
There was no job security what's so ever. They had a revolving door of people quitting or getting let go and hiring new staff every week. It was so frustrating
They thought it was cool that I could make a calendar in excel. It was just busy work that was unnecessary.
Suggestions for improvement
- Move into the 21st century, stop taking your employees for granted, make them want to come to work, challenge them, don't stress them out with trivial tasks. Stop yelling at people. Give back to your employees once in a while with a day off or acknowledge they do well, they are the ones making you millions
What I like about the company
What I dislike about the company
The way they ran their business wasn't logical and I tried several times to point out inefficiencies in their functioning and they turned down any option of change.
