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


    The regional leaders seem to care very much about the well-being of employees, or at least the personal trainer side does. They are always open to questions and concerns. I am lucky and have a great Fitness Manager (PT manager) who is also very much on top of everything his PT's do, and sometimes before I can even ask him, he fixes issues that I run into. We also have a 3 day business course where the company has laid out all of the things needed to help you get your business started and running. It is very helpful - especially if, like me, you are not business minded at all. However, with the demographic and traffic flow at my gym, I don't feel that it will end up being a great fit for me.


    They do take a good chunk of your percentage of PT sales, but it does cover the fact that you have thousands of potential new clients coming your way every week, full use of a huge gym and plenty of equipment, and no need to pay liability insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to fire people who do a crappy job.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gold's Gym (San Antonio, TX).


    I received a call from a fitness service manager about the position I applied for. They set up an interview with her and the regional hiring fitness manager. Interview went well then I was invited back for a panel interview but the panel did not happen and I was offered the position.
