    Pros

    I have worked at Xercise4Less for 4 years. Throughout my time working for this company I have progressed massively. I started my very first role as a Receptionist at the Stockton South branch, I have recently purchased a property in Leeds with my now Fiance where I moved to the Leeds North branch to progress my career as a Membership Consultant. The job roles where very different but support was given to me through the...

    Good Team members, big gym

    Cons

    Head office are rude, Treat members appalling, un-realistic bonus.

    Treat every employee the same, set decent bonus targets and ensure customers are the vocal point of what the company should be about.

      .Free gym membership .Nice staff

      .Working hours are not social. .Working with harlands is stressful and annoying .Management will happily not deal with problems with money related issue's. .going on outreach and generating fake leads to keep your boss happy is your life when working here. .The pay is rubbish. . Bonus structure lol nobody knows how it works. .you'll be able to resolve any problems regards to refunds.

      I have been working at Xercise4Less part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      * Free gym membership * Contracted hours are always a plus * Most of the gym members are friendly * I earn a bit of cash to fit around my studies.

      Cons

      * The uniform is awful * The music is awful * The management are bullies * You only hear from management when there is a problem. * The management never listen to people on the frontline in their gyms. * The company has a ‘take the money and run’ attitude (after someone signs a contract they dont care) * Sales sales sales. Yes sales is important but not enough focus is paid to the actual gym. What about the equipment?...

      Advice to Management

      I know what I say probably won’t make a difference because the management do not give a damn about their staff and will run the business the way they want, but: * Abandon the 4fiit model. Nobody is happy with it, especially the PTs. It sucks. * Make the frontline staff in your gyms from the receptionists, the PTs to even the cleaners (the cleaners especially as it surprisingly these guys who have the most interaction...

      Pros

      Free gym membership, that's about it.

      Cons

      *Expectations are you work 7 days a week. *You get hammered for not hitting targets, you hear nothing if you do well. *Support is next to nothing. *Head office is like a boys club and they all when they come to club which is few and far between, threaten people with their jobs. * Unrealistic targets, forced to work 10-20.00 if you do not hit targets. * HO have lost touch with site staff, *Always looking for ways...

      Advice to Management

      Restructure your systems and listen to your staff. Actually invest in staff and spend some time with them rather than just preaching about it on linkdin.

      I worked at Xercise4Less full-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      Gym facilities are quite good.

      Cons

      Awful sales practises. Unethical. Horrendous management. Will force you to come in on your day off, FOR FREE or face disciplinary! Micro managed to a suffocating degree. Report of sales figures in evenings and days off and constantly bullying. Awful money with unreachable targets. Makes any commission mearly impossible.

      Advice to Management

      No point as you never listen.
