The owner of Benelife is without a doubt the worst owner and manager in the city. She puts a ridiculously high work load on all of her minimum wage staff, all the while dangling an empty promise of a salary over their heads "if only they'll prove themselves this time." No breaks on the job, as staff are not allowed to leave the desk and are reprimanded for eating there at any point in the eight-to-twelve hour shifts. She watches staff through a camera system from her home while staff work alone, including during closing duties. Staff are expected to close at exactly 12, so they are to cash out while gym members are still present and without supervision. Rightfully angry employees from the past call trying to get a hold of the owner, who does not give out her information "for safety" (her words), and this only results in present staff being harassed on a daily basis. The owner owes a lot of people a LOT of money - including me. The same goes for gym members, who are subjected to poorly maintained gym equipment and inconsistent information due to the ever-changing staff.

This corrupt business owner has closed and re-opened as Novita Wellness Institute to Adrenalin Fitness and now to Benelife Wellness Centre. At Benelife over 30 general managers have been hired and released within one year, and there is over 100,000 dollars in outstanding lawsuit claims against Benelife from former employees and business partners. All the employees have not been paid for 8 weeks and counting, some for more than 2 months, and most depend on this income for their livelihood. The owner remains completely unconcerned with the welfare of her staff and refuses to take ownership of her mistakes, choosing to deflect responsibility and defame the character of others to try and save her business. This is an injustice to the working class by a wealthy and irresponsible tyrant owner.
