    was at work and some broly customer asked me if i wanted a better job, said he could hook me up with a job in sales at 24hr fitness. im kinda weary, he said 1250 a month on average+commission and flexible hours. im a college student so who knows it might be a good job, or a shit one. im sure f&n brolys can give some good input

    You may have gotten some better/faster responses in OT, but IMO there's no opportunities that aren't worth looking into. Go check it out broly.

    they make you work stupid hours, like 10-2 & 4-8. plus you gotta sell a certain amount to get your full commission. They will want you to probably work 30-40 hours/week

    If they give you a decent schedule than I'd say get in on that job while you can.

    I'd rather work at a gym than sell hotdogs. Its more money, and more respect. Sales at 24 > hot dog on a stick when looking at a resume. Take it and run. You also get to work out for free, and propably get a discount on suppliments (which are trash there).

    I hear 24hr fitness is horrible to work for. Their turn over rate is really high.

    I'd do it soley based on the merit that "hot dog on a stick" is the most humiliating place to work for, ever. Worse than mcdonalds. It almost sounds like a joke

    Based on the uniform alone the choice is clear..

    If you don't get the 24hr job I'd still suggest quiting. Even if you just step up toChuck E Cheese or something.

    if you are good at sales you can work any sales job and make good money.

    Most gyms require you to get ~10 memberships a week or else you get put one whats called a "pine." If you get put there you have to cold call people, or go outside the gym and attempt to get memberships, you wont get any walkins or callins.

    The sales guys at my gym work 30-40hrs a week an avg $2-4k a month. Dec-March they'll probably pull $4-5k a month.

    Wow, I would quit that hot dog on a stick in no time if i was offered another job

    But then again, selling stuff sure does suck

    well some people are laydowns, they come in and want to join immediatley.

    those are the best because you can fuck them for full commission :o

    i'd say most people are on the fence and take a little bit of finesse and skill to sell them.

    i got offered a job there before... but my current job pays more, so i just go there to work out

    if i ever get the chance to have weekends free (or some shit), i might look into it as a part-time gig
