    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Jewish Community Center (Creve Coeur, MO).

    Interview

    I found the ad in the stl post-dispatch seeking a certified personal trainer at the Jewish Community Center. I first met with the head fitness manager who was cordial and both explained and showed me the facilities and what they were looking for in the position they sought to fill.He was great at answering and clarifying my questions and getting a feel for me, my personality, and allowing the experience to be not a strict interview but for both myself and he to ask key questions relating to the job. I had a follow up actual interview with the head of the personal trainers. He was down to earth, funny, yet asked the questions he would have to know to consider me as a viable candidate. He, too, was very good at listening and taking the time to answer my questions. After that, he discussed my candidacy for the job with the first individual I met, the head fitness manager, as well as the head aerobics instructor coordinator. Then he came back and offered me the job.

    Interview Questions

    • This was more funny than difficult but the head personal trainer manager said very seriously we have a strict appearance code, no earrrings, tatoos, or looking like Mr T. I thought he was serious and then he laughed just saying don't come in looking like mike tyson.   1 Answer

    Interview

    I initially contacted the JCC looking for any available position and they told me they had possible openings for an Early Childhood teacher. I had to vigorously follow up over the course of two months to get a definitive answer; they finally told me yes they did and asked me to come in for an interview. Before the interview, I was taken into several classrooms of varying aged kids and had to interact (and was observed). Then I went into the Education Director's office and the interview started.

    Negotiation

    The negotiation was a little rough, as my employer wanted to pay me a low salary due to not being 'formally educated' in Early Childhood Education during college, despite my dual degree. I negotiated my salary a bit higher before accepting the position.

    Member Services Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Scotch Plains, NJ

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Jewish Community Center (Scotch Plains, NJ) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Was chided for arriving a respectable 20 minutes early, even though front desk was made aware that appt was at 1pm & did not expect to be seen sooner than appt time. The interviewer was hostile from the get go & made it seem like I was an annoyance. She cut me off while I was answering questions, made inappropriate comments about my education and made me feel like crap in general. An interview is normally an information gathering session where both parties bring out the best in one another. This was not the case! Ironically, their internal recruiter advised me during the phone interview that this is 'a warm & welcoming environment.' Tough questions are expected, but an interrogation is never appropriate unless you are dealing w/ a criminal suspect. Stay away from this place.
