    The members

    Worst thing

    That we get taken for granted. Are not given our contracted hours. And sometimes not paid for overtime

    David Lloyd Bar staff, October 2022

  • Best thing

    Free membership equivalent to a diamond package (access to any DL club in the world) huge attention to you seeing the club through the members eyes.
    A real aim to promote you from your joining role and ability to be trained on any department in the club you wish.

    Worst thing

    Very hot on the indoor pool with very little ventilation leaving you covered in sweat within an hour of being on poolside.
    A higher member of in club management is not very friendly and is hated by all lower staff members.

    David Lloyd Chef, September 2021

  • Best thing

    The benefits- free full membership to all DL gyms. The people i work with, mostly students similar to me and i can get along with everyone, manager makes sure i know what im doing and is really helpful. Best job i’ve had so far

    Worst thing

    The physical labour takes a lot of getting used to as im always moving around, ordering food on handhelds for customers and serving it, can be challenging in peak times when there is a lot to remember. But as someone who is not used to this amount of work it makes sense that i find it tiring, i am slowly adjusting to it all.
