Pros: flexible schedule, helping others, freedom to make good deals for customers
Cons: unorganized and unprofessional manager, slow customer traffic
This job is a very intriguing job, with a promise for a great yearly income and a fun work place environment. I feel as though this could be true if the company would put out more efforts in advertising and marketing. I feel that they should do more work in training the managers before they hire them to be a manager. The manager at my store was very unprofessional, and would not tell me what my hours for the next day were until the night before or the morning of. This makes it very difficult to plan anything outside of work. I have however learned a lot about how to be an effective sales person and I really enjoy helping people find the best products for them. My typical day usually consists of making sure all the machines are clean and working properly. I also make follow up calls with potential customers and with customers who have purchased something from the store to see how it is working for them. The most enjoyable part of this job would be helping others find a machine that is going to help them meet their fitness goals. I like seeing customers leave the store happy with their purchase.
