    I have been working at Planet Fitness part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The job is fairly easy to learn and if you like health and fitness, it is a great place to work. You work with and interact with all different types of people, which is a good learning experience. You'll also probably get a free membership.

    Cons

    Since the job is fairly easy, it can get kind of boring. Your managers can make or break your experience. Depending on the franchise you work for, you might have to clean the equipment a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees because they usually have good suggestions.
