I worked at Gold's Gym part-time (more than an year)

Pros

It allowed me to do something I love while working with a great staff. The free-employee membership was an added perk.

Cons

The company doesn't pay it's training staff well. Customers were paying anywhere between $55-$65 a session and training staff was getting paid $10-12 an hour. I was required to be there for a certain amount of time when not training and that pay was minimum wage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Gold's Gym part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    relaxed, easy-going, fun, friendly, soft sales, free gym membership as an employee, great staff, great connections, music, there's always a personal trainer to ask for advice!

    Cons

    not the best pay, at least to start; sometimes customers can be snippy and demanding, but just jeff it off because it's usually not your fault

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get things fixed timely and "for good"; reconsider the facility improvement fee (amount)...
