Front Desk Operations and Personal Training Consultant Interview

Front Desk Operations and Personal Training Consultant
Trumbull, CT

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at LA Fitness.

Interview Details – interview is basically to see how enthusiastic you are to make a horrible pay and the promise of a small possibility to make money. For example in operations you can make $5 for every account clear up you get. but in reality you only get 1-2 some times 3 in a day. Then as sales if you make commission you could make between 500-1500 in bonuses but if some one cancels you lose that bonus but the company keeps there money. they will fill you will illusions of gandure and sell you the dream if you wana buy it.

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.
