    I have been working at Gold's Gym part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Members are more friendly than most big box gyms, the environment lends to a more laid back attitude. Variety of equipment is good.

    Cons

    Management and ownership is based on numbers more than people. Equipment repair and cleaning need to be evaluated. Do need have safety of employees in mind.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees with more respect.

    I worked at Gold's Gym full-time

    Pros

    Warm environment, kid friendly, family oriented, and layed back...

    Cons

    Having to do housekeeping, cleaning up the parking lot during the summer and the winter...

    Advice to Management

    I think you guys should think of maybe opening up a personal daycare inside for moms and dads that like to work out but have nobody to watch their children...

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

    Pros

    Working at Gold's Gym Does have its benefits. You get a free membership as well as 2nd for a friend or family member if you are a full time employee.

    Cons

    At the end of the day its just a numbers game. If you're not producing enough sales in memberships or training, then don't get comfortable. They don't truly care about building a lasting relationship with their members for multiple reason: 1) They only care about getting their money, even if it means bending the truth or manipulating a situation. 2) It's mainly just a bunch of college kids who could care less about the members and the facility.

    I worked at Gold's Gym part-time

    Pros

    Great environment to work in. Great staff and awesome management. Super flexible with scheduling and I never had a problem.

    Cons

    The only con about The Kids Club would be having way too many children at one time. We would have upwards of 60-70 children at one time with only 5-6 staff members.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management currently. They were great people. I was given opportunities that I wasn't previously given and I am thankful for that.
