A workout facility, nice bar/resturant, pool tables, big screen televisions, swimming pool, tennis courts, golf, etc.
Pros: free drinks, parties, meeting new people, and staying busy.
Cons: not being able to train as a certified personal trainer at the village, spending time with members who don't know how to use the workout machines, and employees not being able to cover my shift when taken sick.
My day at work was filled with members I've known for years since working at the Village Country Club. Talking to employees, answering phone lines, checking in members, checking for their country club cards, check picture i.d.'s, driver's license, or passport, filing the marquis, selling tanning cards, writing reports on work out equipment that may – more... be damaged, etc. My job varies with different things to do each day.
I've learned alot about, People. Different types of attitudes, and personalities. How to handle the public in a generous way while maintaining my job professionally.
The co-workers always knew they could count on me to cover their shifts if something came up. They always called me. I was very dependable.
The hardest part of the job was, When a member quickly became upset about a rule. basically dealing with their children who wasn't allowed in the fitness center. Regardless, I always went out of my way to make them feel better before leaving the gym. Just different attitudes when the people are having a bad, and they bring it to the gym with them.
My enjoyment working for the Village Country Club was when we had different types of activities. Like, Christmas parties, Halloween parties, New Year's Eve Parties, 70's or 80's dance, Fight Night, etc. Also, every weekend in the summer they always had swimming parties with a special dj every weekend followed by bands. It was such fun. – less
