Front Desk – Now Hiring!

By: 0

We are sad to announce we are losing a team member, but excited to announce that Natalie is moving on to “bigger and better” things… like helping people live full and healthy lives post-heart surgery better. So we have some big shoes to fill on our desk team! 

The front desk role is one of the most important roles at CrossFit Palm Beach.  The front desk staff is usually the first person someone meets when they show up to CFPB for the first time.  Many of the people that are walking into our gym for the first time are scared or intimidated to walk through our doors, and the front desk person is such an important part of that first impression, and making that person feel welcome.

We are looking for someone who is warm and friendly, and can make others feel comfortable from the second they walk in.  We are looking for someone who enjoys working with people, and has a positive energy each day.  We are looking for someone who is already passionate about CrossFit and/or BeachFit, and already loves the community of CrossFit Palm Beach.  We are looking for someone who fits our core values, the same way we ask our coaches to uphold those same core values.

The CrossFit Palm Beach Core Values are:

We are a family. Introduce yourself to others and know everyone by name.  Treat everyone like a guest in your own home.  Clean up after yourself and always leave the gym better than when you walked in.

The class comes first
. CFPB should be the best 60-90 minutes of our member’s day and the in-class experience is what makes CFPB great. Create an atmosphere where members love coming and never want to leave.
Team > Individual. Relentless focus on others over yourself.  No Egos.  Coaching must come before your own training.  Regularly take classes with members.

Constant and never-ending pursuit of excellence. Pay attention to the details and go above and beyond what is asked.  Be early.  Be overprepared.

Extreme ownership of everything in your life
. Live with honesty and integrity.  No Gossip.  If you have an issue with someone, speak directly to them and no one else.

Live with a growth mindset. Hungry to learn and grow, and constantly make yourself a better coach and employee.  Regularly read books, listen to podcasts, and attend seminars and certifications.

Roles and Responsibilities:

The primary roles of the Front Desk staff start with being immersed in our community and knowing everyone by name.  You will be asked to enter and confirm reservations for every class, and will need to be comfortable talking to anybody and everybody.  You will also be asked to do a lot of cleaning and organization, and shouldn’t be afraid to get your hands dirty.  At times, you will be asked to sell memberships and collect payment information, so you should be okay with asking for money.  While you won’t be asked to do a ton of technical stuff, you should be good enough with computers to learn and utilize our Zen Planner software, email, Excel, Slack, and other online applications.  And you need to be an open source of communication with us and the rest of our team.   Be willing to have uncomfortable conversations at times, and avoid gossip.   The list below provides the responsibilities in a little more detail.
