    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Bally Total Fitness.

    Interview Details

    I was promoted from Sales Manager position through a two-tier interview, first with the District Manager, and then with the Area VP. Since we all worked together closely, it was nothing more than a friendly conversation about the understanding of the role of General Manager and the expectations of the company.

    Interview Questions
    • Again, it was a friendly conversation with my superiors whom I came to know closely with the most unorthodox question being, "What would your mom tell me about your personal deficiencies in the workplace?"   View Answer

    Interview Details

    I was called in initially for an interview at the main office (not the gym) with the district manager. The guy was energetic and liked talking about the company. Talked a lot about starting from the very bottom of the food chain and now being a district manager. The interview seemed to be more about him than the company it self. Second round I met with the personal training manager basic questions about weight lifting an cardio. Two weeks later I was offered the job.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Bally Total Fitness in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I can see why they keep going bankrupt. I drove quite a ways to visit their hq and met a very nice but since departed hr person. Supposedly, the VP of Marketing was unavailable to interview me after my hour drive there, but may have had time to walk past me in the lobby as I waited. I can't say for sure it was the personI was to interview with.

    I was told I would be brought back for another interview. It never happened as suddenly there was another candidate who already interviewed (unknown to me) that got the job. Don't promise something and then not deliver on it.
