great internal benefits only
Fitness Instructor (Current Employee) –  Bolton9 February 2018
Great internal benefits such as 40% off food and drinks and free gym membership for you and 1 other person. pay is not great and hours are not great. members are lovely and so are most of the staff but not worth the pay.
Pros
f&b discount
Cons
Pay and hours

Front of House Staff (Current Employee) –  Hamilton6 February 2018
I have enjoyed my time working for DLL so far. By far the best managers I have had in any job role, in any workplace. You get your fair few awkward customers at the front desk (comes with any customer service role), who act very entitled and rude towards "the staff". But the managers at DLL Hamilton will always back you up, and make sure you're not taken for granted.
Pros
Free gym membership, 50% off food in house, additional discounts outwith the gym, etc
Cons
Awkward shift patterns, salary could be better

Member Relations Manager (Current Employee) –  Weybridge, Surrey25 January 2018
David Lloyd is a great place to work where customer service is top on the agenda.
Their club values include Will to Win, Freedom to succeed and having Edge. All which contribute to doing the right thing for the members but not always the easiest thing!
I would recommend working for David Lloyd. There is great opportunity for progression from team member right up to General Manager level.
Pros
40% off all food and drink in restaurant
Cons
Heavy workloads

Do not work at David Lloyd
rather not say (Former Employee) –  Narborough, Leicestershire13 January 2018
Don't waste your time working here.
The staff turn over is ridiculous. no one wants to work here as they don't care about you at all.
Pay is shocking for what you have to do. You're expected to almost live there.

Not an enjoyable place to work especially with the hours given
F&B (Current Employee) –  Bolton9 January 2018
Not an enjoyable place to work due to no recognition of a doing a good job, poor management, plus the working hours can be outrageous and very illegal. 7 hours between a night and a morning shift should not be acceptable
Pros
Staff get 40% off food and drink and are able to use the facilities for free
Cons
Long hours, illegal hours, breach of contract, no recognition, poor management

Not very good managemnt
Personal trainer (Former Employee) –  Bromsgrove, Worcestershire18 December 2017
Overall my time as a personal trainer was put off due to the continuous pressure to sell your product. No management guidance was given in respect of the job role, just continuous pressure on selling the overall product. That being said the centre itself is a great build and lovely modernised inside.

Started off fun, went downhill very fast

Pros
None

Long hours, short breaks, low pay

Productive, friendly and one of the best jobs to have starting off.
DL Kids Team Member (Former Employee) –  Long Ashton10 November 2017
Although hours over summer are sometimes long and start early, the job provides many opportunities to learn new skills and to develop the ones you have previously acquired. The management are all very friendly and will encourage you to fulfil your potential. The hardest part of the job was always trying to get kids who do not want to be there to get involved and to stop messing around but when they finally did it always became the most enjoyable part of the job as well as building friendships with the kids who would smile when they saw you were on shift.
