Pros – Free Gym membership, great coworkers, able to take your own kids to work
Cons – low pay, no room for advancement, part time hours, very high turnover rate, split shifts, management takes forever to order supplies for cleaning up, not enough activities for the kids to do, lots of broken toys, some of the kids club rules are unreasonable
Advice to Senior Management – if employees were paid a little more the turnover wouldnt be so high, make structural improvements, Lower membership fees
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – There is lots of flexibility.
Cons – There is very low pay.
Pros – Not really sure. My location wasn't that great, ended up shutting down. It was a relaxing job at front desk. No worries or goals.
Cons – You only get 1% commission, my GM talked it up. He didn't train, just sat in his office and expected us to know what to do. I barely got any hours, kept sticking me in kid's club. Gym ended up closing, wasn't making any money and the equipment didn't get taken care of.
Advice to Senior Management – Make sure your GM's don't just care about themselves, and they actually get things handled and completed.
Pros – free membership, relax work environment
Cons – can be boring. front desk doesnt give out the whole truth.
Advice to Senior Management – i worked at golds gym laburnum (richmond, va)pay your employees more. some front desk positions don't get commission. classes at the gym would end at 8:30 and kids club would close at 8 which is stupid. keep kids club open all day instead of split shifts from 9-1pm and 4-8pm. front desk doesnt give the whole truth about memberships because apparently its the customers job to read the warranty. management is incompetent.
Pros – Get a free gym membership, can be fun. Members where really nice and you get to meet a lot of interesting people while working. There are times when the days fly by which is great.
Cons – Long hours, no benefits. Management doesn't give time off, off unless you are willing to not be paid for it. The owners of my franchise were very rude and insesitive.
Advice to Senior Management – Take a survey of your employees from time to time.
Pros – GM was very flexible with giving days off. The job is very easy and the members are usually very nice.
Cons – Not enough employees, makes it hard to call off in case of emergency.
