    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Life Time Fitness (Reston, VA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I was first given a call asking when I could set up the interview date. I told he when I could meet and she agreed. I went in and she had me wait 10 minutes before sitting me down in the very public waiting area. She pulled out a packet which is most likely their interview question packet. She asked me different questions pertaining to my personal to professional life. It went well. She handed me a paper with the company mission statement on it. She asked if I could come back later in the week for another interview with the GM. I agreed and she told me to memorize the mission statement, because the GM was very serious about it. Later that week I went in for my interview with the GM. I recited the mission statement, then he asked for the company values. I was very confused and it turned out the manager forgot to also give me the company values to memorize. He said it was fine and I would have plenty of time to learn it. He then went over the values and I mentioned my past work experience that dealt with each value. He seemed very impressed and we shook hands and I left. I got a call about a week later saying I got the job.

    Honestly my manager forgot to tell me what I was being paid until my first day. She didn't even ask if that was acceptable.

    Interview

    It's alright You go through 3 interviews. But don't bother to work here because your only going to get treated like crap and paid little. Everyone gets scared of the GM for se reason. You can't act like a normal human being when he's around. It's almost like you can sneeze or breathe around them..whatever. they are all foneys and fakes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Life Time Fitness in March 2013.

    Interview

    Received a phone call from the department head asking for an interview. The DH asked about previous/current work, and asked how I would proceed in hypothetical situations (ex. a guest complains his/her food is too hot - how would you respond?). About a week later I interviewed with the General Manager where I had to recite the company vision and mission statement from memory. The following week I was offered the job over the phone, then it was just a matter of a couple more weeks filling out paperwork, waiting for my background check, and then another couple before HR put me in the system. And a few hours of online training videos and tests before actual job training.
