    I worked at Gold's Gym part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    One is able to care for children which I would say is the best job to have because it is impacting the next generation. God's gym is good to their employees as well as members.

    Cons

    The music may sometimes be loud, making it hard to focus and you get a variety of children and parents- some who are disrespectful and don't really care about their children. You need to have compassion and patience to work in the kids care.

    Advice to Management

    Its important to keep the customer first, but also to be loyal to all your employees. You must make sure those who work for you know that you care and want what is best for them and the company.

  5. Personal Training Salary

    Pros

    I love the people and the atmosphere.

    Cons

    Gold's doesn't pay the trainers enough to have a sustainable income. This job would work for someone in college or someone who has another income they can rely on. There was't actual on the job training, and you are mostly meant to fend for yourself.

    Make pay comparable to area gym is located. i.e. If the gym is in a richer area where it costs more to live, pay your employees a bit more
