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.

Interview Question – Why don't you have a regular weekly assignment now?   View Answer
