    I have been working at Gold's Gym full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love working for Gold's Gym. It's very team oriented and feels like you're part of a family. I've been a member of Gold's Gym for around 10 years and an employer for over a year. I really enjoy the work environment and the managers I work with. They have been such great mentors to me and have helped me grow in my position. I definitely recommend Gold's Gym if you're looking for a fun environment, a sense of community and work life balance.

    Cons

    I don't have anything negative to say about the company except I wish the pay was better for trainers
