LA Fitness Complaint - Try Working for this Company
CALIFORNIA -- This Company is insane. I was so excited to secur a position at a new facility so close to my home. I was told I could not work at any other facility because "LA Fitness" Frowned upon it. I agreed not to work for any competitors, but did let my boss know that I had my own buisness in a town quite far away doing Training sessions. He said that would be ok. Since they pay so poorly($6 for a half hour training session), I had no choice but to continue to do my other work. This was something I could do supplimentally. I was not one of the sales people, I was just to train the people who blindly bought into all that bull they were selling. I was eventially told that I needed to be in the facility more even if there was no appointments for me. The wanted me "On Call" for $0. I said I could not do that and I told my boss that he knew that I had other work and that I made a lot more money working Personal Training at peoples homes and that this was just for the experience and location convience. He told me to think it over. Well I spoke to a lady that ran the aerobics dep and found out she too had to hide the fact that she had other work because they only wanted her working there. To do her job she was paid 5 or 6 K a year pluss what ever classes she taught. If she added it all up it was 11-12k a year. Alot more than I was making there but stll below the country poverty line. Is this f-n company kidding me. You want people to work for free and for money you couldn't even pay the bills with? And you want us on call? Come on LA Fitness give me a break. I quit the next day. I have been giving out buisness cards in the area to get some more evening work and have already secured 3 clients. One of which was a member for 3 months and could no longer stand waiting for machines since there is no limit on how many people this company has signed up in a facility. He bought some home equipment and Is getting a much better workout with me!!!! UP Yours LA Fitness slave driving rip off artists!!!!
