The company used to be great but it has changed in the past 2-3 years. The jobs are not secure, there is no respect or recognition for the employees. so many clubs are tired and old and need updating , members complain ( rightly so as the y pay a lot of money) and the staff can not do anything as head office does not listen. Jobs are not secure at all. If you are not a YES MAN and have an opinion on anything, you are shut down and they will make sure they make your life as hard as possible.
the company used to be great for opportunities to grow and go up the ladder but now you are lucky if you even keep your current job.
many good valuable head office staff have been made redundant and cheep illiterate nationals have replaced them in almost every department. They did not use their great general managers to become regional directors, instead they brought regional directions from waitrose! you can tell they have never even lifted a pencil and they have literally no understanding of the health club needs or reasons behind commercials .
You are expected to work more and more and more each day, outside your job description for the name of team player! but the actual reason is that they keep cutting hours from all departments.
Avid this company at all cost. it is not the place to be. and everyone who was worth anything has either left, let go or are leaving now.
hard working, kind front line staff in clubs
awful pay, no respect, no recognition, non existent learning and development for 90% of departments
