      Easy job, little no no raises

      Oct 1, 2021 - Front Desk Associate in Richardson, TX

      Pros

      Free staff membership valid at all Gold's Gym locations, plus discounted rates for 3 family members. 20% discount on drinks, supplements, and apparel in store and online. Easy job to pick up on. Can be a fun environment. Literally just a part-time job to get to through light bills, or as a second income. New company ownership is making a lot of changes to what was previously a very stagnant gym chain, so it's exciting to see where they take it.

      Cons

      Onboarding is essentially trial by fire, but it's not difficult to learn the system. No commission on selling memberships, personal training, or stock items. Raises only occur during yearly performance reviews and are about 17-50 cents. Scheduling can be a mess. Openers and closers are completely alone in the gym for the majority of their shifts. Must stand the entire shift. Management is not always transparent about company updates, which leads to misinforming current or potential members. There's really no opportunity to move up in any way professionally.
