I worked at Planet Fitness full-time (More than a year)
Personal customer relationships.
Fun yet professional work enviroment.
Many different types of people so you don't have to worry about many angry customers.
Easy tasks, and when you offer and give tours of the club, it gives you a chance to really show people (especially first timers) that they can comfortable and what Planet is all about!
Upset customers are really the only down to this job. The memberships offered have to be automatically pulled from bank accounts but there are cash only alternatives to offer.
We also require them to bring a certified form of routing and acct. Number on a check or letter from your bank. However you can always offer to sign them up online in the club and they can enter it in themselves.
Advice to Management
Depending on your location management is usually older. My club was located in Marysville, WA, and was known for the youngest management team in our region. Our assistants and general managers were from 19-25 years old!
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Planet Fitness (Bloomington, IN).
The facility I interviewed at was brand new so they were looking to hire people quickly. I was asked the standard interview questions; tell them about yourself, interest in Planet Fitness, strengths and weaknesses, etc. Was offered the position the same day but this was due to the facility being just opened.
