    I worked at Pure Gym part-time

    Pros

    Work when you want to

    Cons

    Company isn’t in any rush to sort out wages if they are wrong, but still want you to pay the full rent on time even if they are the ones who owe you money so it’ll come out your pocket until they get round to paying you correctly.

    Advice to Management

    Happy team, happy members. You should be sorting out the problems ASAP

    I have been working at Pure Gym full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get to meet some great down to earth members with interesting stories to their fitness journeys. Classes were fun to participate in!

    Cons

    The hours are very unsociable, you are constantly cleaning, you have to work 2 weekends a month, there is hardly any cover for when someone goes on holiday so sometimes you may have to take their classes as well.

    I worked at Pure Gym part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The free gym membership for you and a friend.

    Cons

    Many of the management/team leaders don’t make you feel welcomed. Most of them wouldn’t greet you when you arrive, no hello, good morning or anything. As there’s no interaction with most of them you tend to feel isolated a lot of the time. Also, many team leaders are very rude and speak to you disrespectfully, but in return expect you to respect them. As well as, it seemed like the roles of many of the... management and team leaders got to their heads, because many times they would try to treat and speak to you like you were lower than them.

    Advice to Management

    The reason for why many people come and go in your workplace is because of how you guys treat people. If there’s no change from yourselves it will always be the same issue.

    I have been working at Pure Gym full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Puregym is a company that clearly cares for its employees. The push for progression and internal development is the highest i have seen in a company.The overall growth of the company is great also. Since the company is expanding so rapidly there is plenty of room to move up.

    Cons

    The biggest downfall i would say is lack of communication. Sometimes things get lost in translation as information is filtered down from the top. This is however something that they are aware of and are actively trying to fix.
