I enjoyed the students and it was a beautiful clean gym
Wellness Assistant (Former Employee) – Lake Michigan, MI – July 10, 2018
My typical day at Lake Michigan college was fun. I worked afternoon and evenings. I tracked the college students workouts, helped them with their programs and goals. The wellness center was a class room in the gym for the health classes offered. I preformed pre and post assessments on the. This consisted of cardio, strength, flexibility, measurements, weight, BMI and respiration. I was the only employee on the shift so I did all the coaching and cleaning. I really enjoyed this job. The problem was, they were making cuts in the budget, so the manager was told he could run the wellness center and not ever be there. So we didn't have an manager there I maybe talked to him once every couple weeks. The problem the other employees, which were two women didn't like me because I was the only trainer and I was in the bachelors program for exercise science. The cuts they were making, they were afraid they would loose their job so they played mean jokes on me and tried to get me in trouble . It was a different learning experience for me.
I worked out free. I enjoyed the students and I made friends.
Their wasn't good management so everyone did things different, There wasn't a good procedures in place for everyone to follow.l
