    I worked at Health Fitness full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They have a lot of different locations, they have a lot of different positions, the pay is on par with the industry,

    Cons

    It is hard to have HR not even in the same timezone as you, only 2% increase for raises each year is not enough to even cover the increase in inflation, they push to hire externally for new ideas vs giving internal staff the ability to be promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make site visits, know what your companies are actually doing vs what is on paper.

    I worked at Health Fitness full-time

    Pros

    Working with clients and making a difference in their lives was very fulfilling
    Health and dental benefits, 401K
    Paid time off and holidays
    Good work/life balance, although nontraditional hours can be physically and mentally draining

    Cons

    Do not cover certification costs
    Etraining modules not a productive use of time, nor do they help develop skills
    High turnover
    Do not promote advancement of current employees
    Compensation was probably fair when considering actual job duties, but very low when considering education and certification requirements
    Difficult hours (this varies from site-to-site)
