    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Beachbody in July 2015.

    Interview

    The actual interview was pleasant and enjoyable. However, the process of scheduling it seemed disorganized. Had to reschedule my interview twice because of scheduling conflicts. The Watson- Glaser test was odd and that process was also chaotic because of scheduling conflicts. However, the HR staff was apologetic with the scheduling issues and overall pleasant to work with.

    Director, Program Management Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Beachbody (Westlake Village, Los Angeles, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Worst interview process I have ever experienced. From applying to receiving my first interview was about 6 weeks. I passed the hour-long phone interview and then had a grueling 4 hours of in-person interviews with various executives at their Westlake Village location. That was two months ago. To this day, I have never received any feedback or any response from anyone at Beachbody regarding my interview or the position, despite me emailing their internal recruiter several times. I also emailed the VP who interviewed me and again - no response. Ok - by now I can assume I wasn't successful, but to have rearranged my day (I work full time) and to have spent 5 hours going through a lengthy interview process, for a company as large as Beachbody to completely ignore a candidate (successful or not) is really shocking and just plain rude. If the hiring/interview process is an indication of how Beachbody treats its employees and of the company culture in general, I advise steering well clear.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Beachbody (El Segundo, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Don't even bother applying if you have to take the Glaser Watson test... I went through 6 rounds of phone, webcam, and onsite interviews and aced them all. I didn't do well on the Glaser Watson test and they did not give me an offer just because of it. They made it seem like the test wasn't a big deal but it is. The entire interview process seemed unorganized, people were under qualified for their position and didn't know how to answer questions when asked. It was a waste of my time...

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Beachbody (El Segundo, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Was brought on site for a 4 hour interview with key members. The interview process was standard resume review and qualifier questions asked. It seemed to go very well however, once they were done interviewing there was no next steps. I feel like if you're going to ask someone to take half of their afternoon off that they should at least get what the next steps are. The recruiter emailed me two weeks later stating that this position had been placed on hold. What a complete WASTE of TIME!!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Beachbody (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had 3 rounds of interviews. The first two were on the phone and the third was in person. The first was a technical interview which lasted about 20 minutes. The second was checking my compatibility with the organization and lasted closer to 30 minutes. The third was a deeper dive into both tech and personality match. That was closer to a 2 hour meeting really getting the know the people I would have been working with.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Beachbody (El Segundo, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring process was a series of interviews. First, a phone screening with the recruiter. Then an in-person interview with the hiring manager, immediately followed by one with the call center manager, and then an assessment test. Those were on the same visit. The third interview was a series of three interviews with the more senior leaders in the organization. I had a fantastic time with everyone I interacted with - interviewers asked good questions and adapted to me instead of sticking strictly to the interview guide. I felt that everyone did an amazing job of really getting to know me and what kind of fit I would be for the job, as well as allowed me to get to know them and the position.

    Manager, Strategic Analysis Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Beachbody (Santa Monica, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I received an initial phone screening from the recruiter. The phone call was about fifteen minutes, reviewing my resume and skills. At end of phone call, the recruiter said she wanted me to come in for an on-site interview, and would pass my information to the scheduler. I was told the interview would last between 3 - 5 hours, which would include a critical thinking test, and given the names of two people I would interview with. Upon my arrival, I was escorted to an office and told to log on my email, and click through a link to take the test. They sent me an example of the test questions the night before to prepare. The computer shut down about 15 minutes after starting to install updates. I had to search the hallways for the HR rep, so I could get logged into the computer again. It isn't a "timed" test, but they anticipate that you will finish within an hour. I was told all my answers would be saved, but when I logged back on, I had to start all over. The people in the office next door were very loud, and I heard their entire conversation, and it just added another level of stress to the interview process. After I completed the test, I met with one of the interviewers. The questions were pretty straight forward. At one point I was given a "case study," about return rate. I thought he was talking about IRR, but he was talking about return rate of products ordered. It was just messy until I figured out the confusion. At that point I felt the interviewer had decided I wasn't the right candidate. The interview ended shortly after that. I didn't meet the 2nd interviewer, evidently she was pulled into a meeting that was going to last the entire afternoon. I was skeptical that it was true, but waited to see if the HR person followed through with what she told me. I asked the interviewer for his business card, and he didn't have any, the HR person told me that she would send me his contact information before the end of business. She also told me she would reschedule the second interview by phone (since I had come in from out of town for the interview). She didn't do either of those things, but sent me an email 3 days later that they were "pursuing other candidates who we believe more closely match what we are looking." I had read the other negative review about the interview process, but was really eager to work with Beachbody, I really like the product, and have seen the reviews about the company - and just hoped I could make it through the interview. Disappointed not to make the cut, because it seems like once you get in it - is a very collaborative environment with a focus on fitness, and a product to be proud of.

    Interview

    Interrview process is typical....over the phone at first, then in person. There are interviews that involve two or more individuals. Follow up interviews are often one to one are both sessions are very relaxed in manner.

    Interview

    I received an email and then an initial phone screening from the recruiter. Phone call was about ten minutes. At end of phone call, recruiter said he would follow-up with another phone interview or on-site interview. The following day, I was asked to interview on site with the hiring manager and a panel of additional members of the team. Employees were generally friendly but seemed very unenthusiastic about their jobs and the company. The office was dated and had a "gym" which really only consisted of giant workout balls, matts, mirrors, and a TV. The office smelled like a gym which was strange.

    The company takes their time! Be prepared to wait several weeks to months to find out whether or not you got the job. To be honest- after working here for a few years= it is definitely not worth it.
