    Senior Counsel Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Equinox Fitness.

    Interview Details

    After an initial phone call with the internal recruiter at Equinox, I had two in person interviews with the General Counsel and one other senior attorney. The interviews were difficult (lots of behavioral questions) but everyone I met with was very pleasant. Throughout the process the recruiter was constantly in touch to let me know how the process was unfolding. We corresponded at least once per week over the course of two months. Even when there was nothing to report, e.g. when the General Counsel was on vacation, she let me know so that I wasn't left in the dark. I actually felt like Equinox was courting me and trying to recruit me throughout the process, which is in stark contrast to every other interview I've been on this past year. In the end I did not get an offer but again the recruiter was courteous enough to schedule a call to let me know over the phone. I was disappointed not to get an offer but overall the interview process was worthwhile because the recruiter was so courteous and professional throughout. The rest of Corporate America should take a lesson from Equinox on how to conduct recruiting.

    Interview Details

    Process started with a phone interview with a recruiter in NYC. Next step was an interview in person with a recruiter in LA. Both the HR folks were passionate about what they did and the company. 3rd Interview was with 3 guys. Interview was very relaxed and more of a conversations. I was asked to wait around to meet the VP in LA. Another very relaxed conversation. All nice people.

    Interview Questions
    • There wasn't really a difficult question. It is VERY clear that they are driven by meeting sales projections. If you don't meet them, you should expect a call from your supervisor as to why your club is not meeting the goals.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Equinox Fitness in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview which led to an in person interview. Very unprofessional in my opinion. Interview scheduled for 11am did not begin until 11:45am. Interviewers were very awkward one person asked the questions other said absolutely nothing. Not personable people even though they are in a business that you need to be personable. Pay is minimum wage and hourly training sessions with clients is insanely low pay also.

    Personal Trainer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Highland Park, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Highland Park, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Equinox Fitness in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications were pretty good, but the location changed at the last minute. Interview was conducted in a small stuffy room just off the lobby. Although I had many questions, their answers were a bit evasive, especially regarding compensation. The person I would have been working for did not, in my opinion, present himself or the club very well. They didn't even give me a tour of the facility.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions. The questions could have come from an "Interviewing 101" book. ie. "What is your greatest weakness?" "What have you done to correct it?"   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Equinox Fitness.

    Interview Details

    Three Interviews; With Regional Manager twice- verbal and hands on and then General Manager of the Gym and Assistant General Manager . I spent an hour for each interview with the Regional Coordinator- one was verbal and the other was a practical hands-on for massage therapy. The next meeting with the Gym GM went over the same questions I was asked by the RC. I was under the impression that this would be the final interview and an offer would be made however I was told at the end of the interview that they were interviewing other candidates.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked the same questions by all three managers. Questions were straight forward.   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Equinox Fitness.

    Interview Details

    They flake a lot on the interviews. Don't be surprised if you have to call back or they rescheduled the date. For the interview they'll ask you to try to sell a package of workouts so definitely know how to sell and convince people. Then they'll take you on to the gym floor and ask you to demonstrate a few exercises. Know how to correct someone when they're making mistakes and that's about it. I wish I could tell you more about the interview process, but it's still very questionable. They hire idiots all the time, but gloss over people with actual talent.

    Interview Questions
    • The ask you to sell one of their packages of workouts which range from 12 to 48.   Answer Question
