    I worked at Gold's Gym part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The club was always clean. Parents were always aware of their children and behavior. They treated the kids like their own. They also valued your time and allowed you to bring your own kids to work.

    Cons

    Split shifts weren't fun but rarely happened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Golds Gym Murrieta, Ca was an awesome place to work.

    I have been working at Gold's Gym full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I really enjoy the atmosphere and if your a health buff you have no excuse not to work out. I also have found the pay to be excellent and consistent in comparison to most jobs where commission is apart of your check.

    Cons

    Some co-workers tend not to pull in there weight. Very minimal punishment in the sales area in terms of people who do not work hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    following your staff's activity and following through with mandates we have been given. Also being sure to give out punishment when people do not do as they are asked.

    I have been working at Gold's Gym part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great team, very supportive, very fun, everyone always willing to pitch in, easy to find cover if you need to be out a class, the pay is good and it's increased for those who work across the bridge due to the bridge fees, managers are always willing to help out if you need it

    Cons

    Hard to get a class to regularly teach, but this is not really a fault of Gold's more so just having enough instructors of a certain class available to cover if need be. More logistics than Gold's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your members. Watch the Facebook page, many are expressing the want of a certain classes added or certain times, and not much is done sometimes. Make announcements that you see their posts and are working on it.

    I have been working at Gold's Gym full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours, and decent pay.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room to move up. Once in a position you pretty much are there for years until you either find another job or the off chance that a new position opens up which doesn't happen often. Which is no ones fault it just is what it is.
