    I worked at Planet Fitness part-time

    Pros

    Great management
    Positive work environment
    Easy to pick up

    Cons

    Tough to advance
    Was not made aware of sales requirements
    Time off
    Cleaning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people know that there is some sales required before they apply, as some people won't have that experience and would need to be taught proper techniques. Also, if an employee is a fit for full time and or management, give it to them. Don't stick to the "totem pole" mentality.
