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

Pros

You make as much as you work. Potential to make up to 3,500 bi-weekly.

Cons

Difficult to get people to sign. You almost have to swindle people to make them sign. No real assessment on nutrition which is the main reason most clients don't lose weight in the first place.

Advice to Management

Provide training.

    I worked at Gold's Gym part-time

    Pros

    They hire quickly, no long interview process. Some of the regular members were friendly and fun to serve. Simple, straightforward work.

    Cons

    Management was so passive it was almost nonexistent. There was no sense of teamwork or camaraderie -- not even basic respect -- at all, let alone room for growth or creativity. One guy worked there for four years without a raise. Lunch breaks/breaks in general were dismissed as luxuries. Front desk reps had to stand the whole time and aren't allowed to do anything, include read a magazine or go online, even if there are 5 people/hour coming in. Instructions and expectations were very unclear.

    Advice to Management

    If you care more about profit than your clients or your employees, you won't make much of a profit. Be kind, pay a fair wage, and read a book or two about effective management.
