Front Desk Associate Interview

Front Desk Associate
Huntington Beach, CA

Interviewed at 24 Hour Fitness

Interview Details – I applied in store and called about my application. Then they later called me for an interview. It was with the pregnant manager and one of the front desk girls. We went into the kids area and interviewed there. She asked why I want to work there, and how big of a priority would this job be. I told her I would choose work over my social life and she asked what if I got hired somewhere else and I left the job. I told her I would stay with 24 hour fitness and she kept asking what would happen if I got another offer somewhere else. She wasn't convinced that I was serious about this job. Came out of no where. She kept talking about how her girls work hard and they don't just do paperwork. Wasn't really asked much questions, just told information. All the front desk girls are super tall. 5'8-5'10ish and skinny and look similar. So I guess I didn't meet the looks.

Interview Question – What would you do if you got a job offer somewhere else?   Answer Question

Front Desk Associate Interview

Front Desk Associate
Huntington Beach, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at 24 Hour Fitness in April 2014.

Interview Details – Was referred here by a friend who works here. I called mentioning that my friend referred me and that I was following up on my online application. The manager set up an interview with me immediately- for 2 days later. My first interview was with the club manager (the one you usually see 2nd). It was great, she was so sweet and offered me the job and said I didn't need to have the 2nd interview, only had to meet the other boss and do paperwork. I came back the next day, met with the 2nd manager who set up my interview. It went pretty well I thought. she said she'd call in a few days. I called a few days later and she said they chose somebody else. :/ So I was pretty disappointed and confused since I was given the offer..

Interview Question – 1.) give 3 negatives about yourself. I only had 2 prepared, she pushed for a 3rd-had to think fast.
2.) how did you handle an angry / upset customer and to explain the problem and how you solved it.

Service Representative
Costa Mesa, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at 24 Hour Fitness in October 2012.

Interview Details – Had two interviews. The first one was with the club manager. They called me back and told me in so many words I got the job but I had to have another interview with the service manager just so she could approve it. I went in, and had my second interview. They called me like 15 minutes later after I left to offer me the job.

Personal Trainer II Interview

Personal Trainer II
Northridge, CA

I applied in-person and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at 24 Hour Fitness in July 2011.

Interview Details – I was interviewed by 5 different managers at the time of hire. Additionally I was the one that had to communicate interest, this means that I had to call each and every time to set an interview time/date. Also I was asked to come back to the gym multiple times do to scheduling errors on the part 24 Hour Fitness so that I actually had to go the gym on five separate occasions over a five week period. I was put off by the general manager as he came across as pompous and proud of the hoops that I had to go through to be hired as a trainer. However the best interview was conducted by the Fitness Manager who asked thorough questions and determined if I would be a good addition to the gym structure.

Interview Question – You see an employee go to the drinks and take a drink what do you do? The gym is set up that a person can pay prior to selecting the drink and when I asked for clarification I was told to always assume that the person did not pay.   View Answer
