Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 September 2017
The plus side: you get to help people get fit, and the Gold's brand is well known. Also, free gym membership.
The down side: no benefits, the Calgary franchise owners would sometimes not pay ppl on time or the correct amount. Serval staff filed complaints with the Alberta Employment Standards. Not uncommon for owners to raise there voice at staff.
Membership Coordinator/Customer Service (Former Employee) – London, ON – 30 August 2017
I really enjoyed my time here while it lasted - the ownership changed and when it did so did all of the staff. The people were incredible both members and coworkers. The owners made it fun for us all the time. I learned alot while I was there and sad that my time came to an end due to owner change.
customer service representative (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 1 July 2017
A typical day is greeting everyone coming and going within a few seconds for seeing them...Answer phones, clean bathrooms, clean up weights at the end of the shift, fold towels as well as retrieve them from towel bins, cash out when closing, clean front desk, keep hand sanitizer and towel dispensers filled, clean bathroom sinks, and lock up at the end of the shift if closing.
Staff (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 22 June 2017
Working at Golds Gym was an absolute joke. The management was terrible, job security was terrible, and so much more. If they don't like you they just faze you out and you are never seen or heard from again. Members will come up and complain numerous times about something being broken and it never getting fixed. At work you are belittled as well and if you don't do something even outside of the job in your everyday life you get treated terrible. Honestly if you are looking for a secure job where you are treated with respect you deserve, look somewhere else. Don't let the false promises get to your head.
Sales & Counter Person (Former Employee) – Prince George, BC – 25 April 2017
I usually was in my office calling potential clients to join the gym, and to call about gym membership increases. Worked the front counter and made blender drinks and took payments for products sold and took payments for exercise class drop ins. Cleaned the counter area and counted the cash. Set alarm and locked up at the end of the night.
Childcare Attendant (Current Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 13 February 2017
You work with a great bunch of people. You get to experience a wide variety of personalities, and everyone that comes to the gym to work out, you get to know them pretty darn fast! Its a great atmosphere to be in.
Environnement de travail productif et très agréable
Superviseur de réception (Former Employee) – Brossard, QC – 20 January 2017
Mon expérience de travail au Gold's Gym:
En quelques mots je peut vous dire que j'ai adorer mon temps au Gold's Gym. J'ai pu apprendre à gérer une équipe tout en forgeant des amitiés. La relation entre les gérants et travailleur fessait en sorte que nous avions un bel dynamisme de travail et ensemble comme une équipe atteindre les buts demandés.
Child Care Attendant (Current Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 4 January 2017
Gold's Gym is a great place to work, I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great positive atmosphere. If you have any questions about your job or need help with anything at all, you can ask pretty much any of the staff. Everyone is extremely helpful and excited to work everyday.
Child care, Customer Service (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 June 2016
The manager here is great with customers but not with his employees. On multiple encounters I have had to remind him of things that need to be fixed only to be told to fix them myself. These things not being part of my job description nor was I trained nor was I provided with the tools needed or the help. That is by far the hardest part of the job; not having the opportunity to make things better. Being that my department only has 1 employee working at a time, I do not have encounters with other co-workers. The few times I have had to cover shifts have been with plenty of notice. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I first meet some kids, they are often shy but turn out to be very happy and playful by the end. The next time they visit, they often recognize me and get excited. I love that transition experience. I get to watch a child see me as a stranger at first to a friend by the end.
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 6 April 2016
Typical day at work ready to train and study client. What I learn is by my own observation on client. Managing my own observation. Co-workers are good , good job setting. Hardest part of the job meeting there expectations. Most enjoyable part of the job is working with the clients.
