I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2015.
The entire process was very positive, and i was asked a serious of key questions regarding my previous workplace experiences . I was also asked about why i wanted to work for the company . The questions were specific to my own experiences in dealing with positive and negative cystomer service type of scenarios. The interview lasted for about an hour , my answers to each were slightly lengthy but i was able to earn a second interview with the general manager of the club.
- What does customer service mean to you? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Florham Park, NJ) in November 2014.
Very complex process for a very simple job. There were 3 levels of phone, 1:1 spa manager then an invitation to meet the general manager. It was expected to memorize the mission/vision statements prior. There is also an expectation to be extremely fit and healthy and a required screen of general medical baselines- (cholesterol, bp etc)

I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Reston, VA) in September 2014.
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.
- I was not asked any difficult questions everything seemed very general of an interview process. Answer Question
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.

I applied online – interviewed at Life Time Fitness.
I applied online but did not get any feedback so I went into the gym to see if I could get an interview. I left my name and phone number with the front desk staff and got a phone interview. I then had a second interview with the GM and felt like it went well. I waited for a cal back but never got one so I called the GM to see if the postion had been filled and he never called back.
- Memorize the Mission and Vision Statement Answer Question
I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Sandy Springs, GA).
Started as a group interview.
Why do you want to work here?
Call back in a few days to meet with the GM. Just remember the Mission & Vision Statement, you will have to tell them it.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Omaha, NE) in April 2013.
He calls you to schedule the interview with the Life Cafe Department Head. He will go through the Corporate interview questions and engage in conversation with you. If successful, you will need to do a second interview with the General Manager. This is an easier interview that just covers the information on the sheet you are given.
- How do you live a healthy life? Answer Question
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Life Time Fitness in March 2013.
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.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Flower Mound, TX) in January 2012.
This company requires individuals to apply online ONLY. You fill out a long questionare along with giving your work history and other general resume info. A cover letter is suggested and when you finish jumping through those hoops, ...well you get to wait. You recieve a confirmation email which tells you the company will contact you IF they are interested. This could be days, weeks, or even months for some. Then, should you recieve a call you first will go through a phone interview. The professionalism of this interview is entirely left to how competent the manager on the other end is (which in most cases is not very good). If they still like you after this you will be scheduled for a one on one interview with the manager of the selected department and AGAIN this could be a matter of days or weeks. The one on one interview involves questions regarding your personal knowledge of the company and "why" you desire to work there. Your education and experience may be glanced at but is not really of much importance as will be evident by the blatent push that you must be willing to CONFORM to the way of the company. After the one on one, you will be scheduled for a third interview with the location's general manager who will verbally test you on the mission and vision of the company placing a large value on your ability to memorize it and spit it out at any given time. Should the manager like you too he will send your information through for a background check. You will then recieve an email from the agency conducting the background check and you will have to complete a lengthy questionaire. If all comes out good and clean the manager is then supposed to schedule you for a 3-4 day paid trainning at a specified LTF location. (This rarely happens as the LTF turnover rate is SO HIGH they struggle to maintain a trainning facility) Only AFTER completing and passing the trainning are you then placed on the schedule to begin work. The whole process for me took about 30 days.
- If you come to find that corporate is difficult to work with/for, how will you handle it? 1 Answer
It was rather informal and really little to no wiggle room given for negotiation. The best I was given was a base rate and a "promise" of promotion (which hasn't gone through!). I suggest anyone offered a position strongly consider how much they value their sanity and health beacause at this "healthy way of life company" you, as an employee, are not important. You will be over worked, under paid, and HIGHLY under appreciated.

I applied online. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Austin, TX) in January 2011.
The interview process was extensive for me. I first recieved an interview over the phone, then with my Cafe supervisor. I was then asked to memorize the mission and vison statements which I had to recite to the GM of the company before meeting with my supervisor one last time.
- Describe a time when you went above and beyond to help a customer. Answer Question
I didn't do much negotiating, because as I saw it, it was just a cafe position which I only planned to remain in for about a year or so. There was no negotiating the pay, (minimum wage) and everything else I was perfectly fine with. For me it was just supposed to be a little job that worked well with a full-time school schedule and up until now, it has upheld those expectations.
