Difficult Interview

Group Fitness Instructor Interview

Group Fitness Instructor
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online - interviewed at LA Fitness in March 2012.

Interview Details – Stress Interview. Interviewer wanted me to demo actual parts of my class format, i.e. warmup, cardio, cool down, etc. in an artificial environment, facing her, without any participants.
Interviewer asked me what I get paid at other places I have worked, then she proceeded to have comments that expressed her opinion that the $ amount was too high (!!).
The seated interviewer wrote copious notes, while keeping me standing and waiting. Atmosphere of interviewer was adversarial.

MEMBERSHIP COUNSELOR Interview

MEMBERSHIP COUNSELOR

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at LA Fitness in May 2014.

Interview Details – The interview was straight forward. They want new memberships and to meet quotas. They asked me 3 times in the interview if I was comfortable with being in a place that drove memberships first and foremost. They mentioned how a typical work week would be and what their expectations were for cold calling and field time. They had fairly detailed expectations for what a good membership counselor is compared to one that is less than effective. They kept talking about the fast track to management and that being promoted to weekend Manager and then to General Manager running your own club was the ultimate goal. And all of this would be available for someone that came in and sold to their production expectations. Full benefits and schedule were discussed at the end.

Interview Question – Their big question was can someone handle the grind of making sometimes hundreds of phone calls and making field visits to bring in memberships during every shift.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – A better offer came up closer to home.

Personal Trainer Interview

Personal Trainer
Chicago, IL

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at LA Fitness in June 2010.

Interview Details – I liked the guy I interviewed with. The only thing that frustrated me was he kept me waiting for a long time (interview was scheduled to start at 1 and I sat there until almost 1:30) and also he was so busy he had to keep answering the phone and leaving in the middle of the interview. I was offered a job, and am still considering it, but all the bad reviews online are scaring me.

Interview Question – When can you start?   Answer Question

Training Director Interview

Training Director

The process took 3 days - interviewed at LA Fitness in December 2011.

Interview Details – Submitted on line application, met with a guy who I will call x, I liked x, enjoyed his outlook thought the position was a good fit. X called the next day and said y, would be I touch. Wasn't sure how y fit in, y called, via the conversation. I had no idea if y was a man or woman. I was ref to y's boss, I drove across the county and met with a sleazy sales guy who brought out paper and drew diagrams of $... Like I was buying a car !!! I didn't get a word in and sleezy sales guy, spent too much time, promising raises and promotions. Should have been a red flag.

I was sent back to y, come to find out y was a female, very heavy steroid use.
