    Pros

    20% off in store, free use of the gym

    Cons

    Where do I begin.... During my interiew I told my manager that I would need a day off for a hospital appointment. He told me that it wouldn't be a problem, I was then offered the job later that day..happy days! When we got the rota for that week, I had been put down to work the day that I needed to be off! So i asked the manager multiple times and told him that I needed this day off. He told me to ask around the reception team to see if I could swap my shift with anyone, no one was able to work it so I told the manager and still nothing had been done!! It was the day before so I just said that I won't be coming in tomorrow and they were really funny about it and didn't seem very happy. It's not like I hadn't given them notice!!! You have to scan your fingerprint in at the start and end of each shift to make sure you get paid... well not one person had bothered to even tell me this UNTIL MY 5th SHIFT THERE! So I had lost out on about £180 already!! I told management and they said that there's nothing they could do and that i'll 'have to remember to scan in next time'. Another problem I had was that they only gave me one shirt and i was working about 45 hours each week. They had apparently ordered me in some more but shock.......they never arrived! Just another problem was the fact that I was the only person that worked on reception who COULDN'T DRIVE, yet they still put me in for a 6am start roughly 4 days a week!!! And just to top everything off, I have only been paid less than half of what I am owed and they don't even have a number for payroll........you have to emai them directly from the club!!! I was only there for 1 month and left on pay day. but I can hands down say it was the most miserable month EVER and I would never advise anyone to work there!!
