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

    Pros

    Great gym with excellent atmosphere, equipment, and members. It was my favorite job I worked at to date. Also everyone is encouraging each other to constantly grow.

    Cons

    Some minor management issues but nothing too severe. Management has frequent turnover from by experience there. Stupid policies that diminish after nobody follows them.

    I worked at Gold's Gym full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to learn the ropes of personal training due to the structure of the personal training program, as it requires the manager to do the selling - takes the stress off of the new trainer.

    Cons

    No real chance for upward advancement, poor upper management, almost impossible to get raises. Hard to balance work and life, due to the need to make a living.

    Advice to Management

    Do a total overhaul of the company, from the ground up. Give the employees a chance to grow and flourish like most companies do.
