Reception, Administration, CS (Current Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 23 October 2013
I have gained a lot of experience as a receptionist and administrative assistant. I have perfected my skills in working as a team or by myself, whenever needed. I have learnt to work under a lot of stress, though not desired. My day consists of greeting clients, answering incoming calls, making outbound calls to current clients, working in team or alone, reporting to the General Manager or Assistant General Manager, building a good rapport with clients, co-workers and managers. Hardest part of the job is working understaffed, not getting a deserving raise, working with constant changes in staff and management, as well as tremendous amount of issues from clients, stress. Most enjoyable part of the job is working with pleasant clients and co-workers, having an understanding Manager, perks to using the fitness club for myself and family.

Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 17 April 2017
Working for Goodlife was a good foot in the door for the fitness industry. I was provided with the necessary guidance in order to be successful. However, that will not always be the case in every location. I was very fortunate to have gotten in with the management staff at the time of my hiring, however things were not the same as soon as management staff changed. Hours and pay will be dependent on how many clients you take. So work/life balance and pay is dependent on you. You are also expected to find your own clients, so be prepared by doing some sales training ahead of time.

Goodlife has been apart of my life for the last two years, they have given me opportunities and have helped me strive for my own goals. Management is supportive and understanding but room in advancement is non existent. Hours are traitorous but the gym itself is a lovely environment!

Personal Trainer (Current Employee) – Whitby, ON – 23 March 2017
Work is sporadic, basically its a sales job, with training being the product. Works for some, and not for others. Culture is good depending on the club, and the job can be fun. A constant hustle is required, without that you wont go anywhere in the company.

everyday was new, meeting new people and new experiances. everyday began with the sales meeting in the morning to get our head sharp. We would then focus on daily targets and decide how we were going to meet them.
