Golds Gym is no longer a corporate entity, they are all franchise owned. This particular franchise group in the DC Metro area is pretty bad.... Play favorites, only support gyms near where the higher ups live. I can respect that they bought the gyms and can run them how they please. Definitely not for me or anyone used to gyms respecting you and/or paying bonuses if earned. They manage situations by writing people up, and want you to do the same. No more going to the conference. If you want to work 9-6 Monday, Tuesday, Wed and have to be in on Saturdays as a GM... this is for you.

Pros and Cons
None, just having the job was the good thing about it

Do not work for this company. Horrible upper management. Do not appreciate employees and will take advantage of you. Do not communicate and lie. Never do what they say they are going to do
