    Pros

    Enjoyable, easy, and very relaxing. The people who come in are driven and usually extremely friendly.

    Cons

    Often customer don't come in for a while. There is a lot of down time that can be really boring and tedious. Not for someone who wants to work nonstop.

    Advice to Management

    Management is done by a franchisee. Each is different. The company has a good structure, but the prices of some of their supplements are quite high.

    Pros

    Laid back ownership
    Some employee discounts

    Mediocre pay at best

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be better training across the board, Max Muscle has a lot of franchisees who work very hard but don't seem to know what to do from a business perspective. Very questionable business ethics. They will sell steroids under the guise of "nutrition plans"
