    I worked at Gold's Gym

    Pros

    Met a lot of people in my community. Free membership if not already a member. Discounts on apparel.

    Cons

    Low Pay, Hours are terrible, Management and Corporate are the worst. They only worry about themselves. They will hire literally anyone. Very unprofessional

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like you actually want them to work for you and stop lying to them. At the moment of hire tell the candidate exactly how it is. Do a drug test once in awhile. Be more professional.

    I have been working at Gold's Gym full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Full time employees have access to top notch benefits, the overall culture and ability to grow with the company.

    Cons

    Upper management needs improvement in regards to hiring/choosing appropriate candidates. Work-life balance is difficult for salaried employees (ie - phone calls/texts/e-mails at 3 a.m).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To have more productive employees, management should consider respecting when an employee takes time-off the point is to let the employee recharge and take a break....hence the name PTO (paid time off - not paid time away from the gym but continue to work).
