a place where you can work to help others feel better about themselves and also work on you. management was great, very reasonable.it also had child care inside which was helpful to those parents who wanted a better life but had no baby sitter. in the child care they also did educational games and songs. Everything about that job was enjoying.

Hustle but great once you become established
Certified Personal Trainer (Former Employee) –  Kew Gardens, NYDecember 18, 2015
I trained clients around the clock. Bally neglected the gym and did not seem to care much about their members. I have learned that if you have lemons to make lemon aide. Management was seriously lacking. The hardest part of my job was creating a pleasant experience for my clients with little and old equipment. The most enjoyable was that I was instrumental in changing lives.

Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) –  Norwalk, CADecember 9, 2015
Bally was always busy, it was a nice place to work. Most supervisors were productive. Co-workers were all friendly and the working conditions were very good. 90 % of the calls were complaints, which would have been fine, except the sales people at the clubs, typically would really, bend the truth to get customers to sign a contract. Than it was up to the call centers to calm them down and explain the contract.
Pros
Good co-works
Cons
Sales people lying to the customers
