    I worked at Gold's Gym

    Pros

    Free membership
    casual dress
    could eat at desk

    Cons

    They have a major lack of communication and even though it's part of doing your job correctly they still don't communicate things to you. They are geared more towards quanitity over quality. They run too many specials which brings in more members which makes the current members angry. They will release you from you job for very trivial things but allow people who are actually breaking the law to stay employed with them. Overall not a very good place to work. Not compensated for the things you do well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage. Take some classes on communication with employees. Praise those who do things well and save the firing for people who actually do stuff wrong that affects how they do their job.

    I have been working at Gold's Gym

    Pros

    Great Atmosphere, competitive pay (entry level), if your a veteran in your field don't think making the transition to Gold's is going to be worth your while.

    Cons

    Strong pressure to sell, very non transparent with contracts, increasing dues,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make contracts more transparent, sales goals must be realistic, having 250 new members in the month of November not a feasible goal.
