Where do I even start? It's sad that Gold's Gym doesn't care about retaining good people for the positions they hire. Corporate will find any reason to fire you, especially if you are good at your job.
This is a poorly run company that relies on increasing prices 3x/year yet does nothing to increase the value of its personal training services, equipment, overall gym cleanliness, or staff.
Gold's Gym has terrible turnover and they expect new membership sales consultants to be fine making $8 an hour when they could make more money at the Wendy's down the street. How can you expect them to sell $70-80 training sessions in Knoxville, TN when you can go anywhere else and find them cheaper with better valued trainers? You have $40 trainers being sold for $70. The value isn't there, and Gold's doesn't care on getting its trainers or the rest of their staff better.
The business model is completely flawed and corporate sits on their high horses trying to just fire people because they are terrified to lose their jobs.
Don't work here. The pay might be nice, but the toxic environment is enough to make anyone stay away.
