    It's a job!

    Managers get £28000 plus bonus £2000 per quarter if target gained.
    Assistant managers get 18000 plus £1000 per quarter if targets gained.
    Targets get changed to ensure that manager's don't hit targets.

    Cutting back on everything constantly
    Changes in direction on a daily basis.
    No clear answers to questions.
    Lots of audits !

    Apply for new small clubs, learn lots and move on.

    I worked at Pure Gym full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Puregym as a company are very strong but are let down from a employee point of view by some clicks within some of the regions. Covering up shocking behaviours, unqualified manager Personal training. Then forcing out hard workers.

    Cons

    AGM role is the same as the GM role but with half the bonuses (when targets are realistic) and a £10000 per year wage difference.
    The company rewards key board warriors that claim to do hard work and not the individuals that truly work hard.
    You need to be in a click to advance within puregym.
    Puregym is no longer about great quality staff (managers) that are qualified Personal trainers providing a great member experience.
