I worked at North Dakota State University as a contractor (less than an year)Pros
I enjoyed working at NDSU as a group fitness instructor, but the information I have to share is very limited because I worked 1-3 hours/week. The staff was friendly, there is daycare located in the same building as the gym, the gym was a nice facility.
I also loved that this gym hosted various group fitness workshops- very convenient to attend. The locker rooms are clean spacious, not overcrowded, with hairdryers on the wall. The group fitness room was in good condition with all the basic fitness toys needed to teach a class. The upstairs room where I taught HIIT was less known to patrons, and we experienced lower attendance numbers.Cons
Considering that this position was at a university, the employed college students tended to lack professionalism.
I disliked that even though I taught at the same time every week, the front desk staff did not bother to learn my name, or even that I was there to teach, not use the gym.
Finally, it was disappointing that as an instructor, I was not given free access to use the other gym facilities.Advice to ManagementAdvice
