A helpful and flexible job when in a desperate time - for me it was the only thing that fit well around my study hours, however the 5am starts and 10:30pm finishes nearly killed me during semesters! Would definitely recommend getting a more 'normal hours' job if you can manage it - even if you think you'll be fine! Management in my club was great, very understanding and flexible culture, I always felt valued as a person rather than just seen as a task. However the pay was very low for some of the heavy things we had to do - ie extreme deep cleaning, and we don't get paid nearly as much as other qualified pool lifeguards in Sydney. Virgin was great for me for a season but definitely took over my life and wrecked my sleep schedule. Not for the faint of heart!

A little tongue and cheek in their approach, Virgin Active is a pleasant and thriving hub to work in. The team culture is fun and engaging and the opportunity for growth is plentiful.
Pros
No rent, buddy membership after 12 months.
Cons
Difficulty moving to the next tier in the trainer journey.

This was an interesting yet not that long experience that allowed me to get some hands on experience in a field where previously I had none.

Good place to work. Nice Bosses. Great facilities. Flexible working hours, but you are expected to do a lot. Trainers can be fierce about protecting their clients.
