Current Employee - Personal Trainer

I have been working at Gold's Gym part-time

Pros

Cons

Eh the pay is not too good

Former Employee - Membership Advisor

I worked at Equinox full-time

Pros

+Company culture is so fun! +Free gym membership +Sales training is fantastic

Cons

+You will WORK.....work weekends, evenings, 12 hour days, etc. +Closeout is last 4 days of the month (may be different w/ COVID-19) but you will not be able to take off +Lack of transparency w/... leadership. You will not know changes have been made until literally that moment. Ex. when an employee is terminated, you will find out that exact moment and have to plan accordingly to cover shifts, take appointments, etc.
