    Pros

    Great fun atmosphere, working with kids and parents. Relaxed work environment (coaching with bare feet, or closed toed shoes) good middle management.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot, hours are a bit unconventional, but pay is decent, you are rewarded for good work in both Customer Service and Coaching.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Haven't been here in a few years so not sure.

    Cons

    The management is horrible and if you give them what they want they are happy. If you ASK for anything they punish you. I know a couple of people that are working 45+hours here and management will not let them become full time because they don't want to give them benefits. The "higher ups" don't want to deal with anyone and even when there are complaints within the gym they can care less. They are very unappreciative but great at buying your employment!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Budget cuts? You earned about 10.1mil and you need budget cuts. Disgrace to hard workers. You should really learn to appreciate your workers before you're business goes down.

    Pros

    there are very little pros about working for ASI. The only pro that immediatley comes to mind is being able to work with kids and the joy that comes with with exceling.

    Cons

    Management does not appreciate their workers. I had over 13 years of gymnastics experience between competition, coaching and Judging. I was maxed out on their pay scale and it was not enough to deal with the headache that management likes to bring upon the coaches. This place does not encourage gymnastics performance. You are paid extra for the number of beginner classes you coach but are not compensated for the advanced classes you teach. If you are serious about gymnastics, then this is not a place for you to work. It is discouraged to actually condition your kids, and encouraged to hinder the progress of your kids.

    I have also seen the owner behave very unprofessionaly to female coaches at ASI celebrations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    restructure your company and realize that you need to take better care of all your coaches not just the ones with the highest student counts.

    Pros

    -Many of my coworkers were very nice
    -I had the opportunity to do administrative work and work with children
    -Casual atmosphere
    -Great part-time work, especially if schedule boundaries are set from the start
    -At times a best it is a fun work environment

    Cons

    To be fair, I worked at ASI a few years ago so, with hope, they've improved since then... They are really great at hiring people who aren't great, just ok, at what they do (coaches, camp staff, etc.) and paying them just enough to stick around for a while. I was actually treated pretty well during my time there and had a great manager for a while but senior management is terrible. They come in and demand changes but don't offer the support that each gym and its staff needs. For the most part, employees are completely overworked but ASI magically figures out a way to get out of paying overtime. I have actually seen a gym manager go over timesheets and cut hours (in other words, fail to pay employees for time that they've already worked) because the extra time was unauthorized. (In most cases, this was an extra twenty or thirty minutes that the employee got stuck staying after their shift for one reason or another.) We were also required to work "charity" events (for free) that were widely publicized as charity by the gym... yet the gym kept a hefty chunk of the proceeds for "operating costs" and what not... so the employees could take the hit, but the company couldn't. We were also often required to work Saturday night events with the promise that "everyone had to" but mangers and senior management would never show and, if they did, it was only to drop their kids off. One really great thing about this company is that they train their employees very well. I have been able to take my skills and experience from ASI to several other positions. Also, for high school and college students, the pay is usually better than most other part-time jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair to your employees. Don't ask for things that you would never do yourself (i.e. donating your time/money).

    Pros

    Great place to work. Learned lots of new things, how to spot different skills, drills, class managment, ect. Steady schedule that can be negotiated and time off is never really questioned as long as you give notice and find someone to cover your hours that is qualified.

    Cons

    Corporate managment is hard to contact. When contact is obtained, it is often rushed and they make it seem like they have more importatnt things to do then address the needs of their employees who rely on them for support (although im not sure what those things are).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please help and support your staff at gyms more effectively. We are lucky to see a DM/SOM once every month and they only manage 4 each? The online testing courses are a bit much and would be more effective taught in a group classroom setting. noone likes spenging 19 hours in front of a computer screen on training, just so they can coach a front roll.

    Pros

    If you love gymnastics and kids, it is something you would love.

    Cons

    I did not get paid much compared to my experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people with more gymnastics experience more money, and they will stick around longer.
