I worked at Gold's Gym part-time (More than a year)

Pros

It allowed me to do something I love while working with a great staff. The free-employee membership was an added perk.

Cons

The company doesn't pay it's training staff well. Customers were paying anywhere between $55-$65 a session and training staff was getting paid $10-12 an hour. I was required to be there for a certain amount of time when not training and that pay was minimum wage.

Advice to Management

Consider a fair percentage to pay the staff. I'm not naive enough to say pay 50/50, but enough for employees to make a living. We're doing all that work out there training these people, coming up with diet and supplement plans and are

    I have been working at Gold's Gym part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    relaxed, easy-going, fun, friendly, soft sales, free gym membership as an employee, great staff, great connections, music, there's always a personal trainer to ask for advice!

    Cons

    not the best pay, at least to start; sometimes customers can be snippy and demanding, but just jeff it off because it's usually not your fault

    Advice to Management

    Get things fixed timely and "for good"; reconsider the facility improvement fee (amount)...

    You deal with a lot of different personalities. (a lot of negative)
    The pay is not consistent.
    It takes a long time to build up ur clients.

    Advice to Management

    Pay trainers on a hourly rate!
