Sales Counselor Interview

Sales Counselor

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at LA Fitness.

Interview Details – The GM of the club called me and I went in for an "interview" he was 20 minutes late and it was more like a chat than an interview. He kept fist bumping and giving me high fives. He was bragging more about himself than asking about me and my experience. I met with the District VP a few days later who was very loud and again bragging about himself. Assuring me that if I did well I would get promoted and could make close to 100k my first yr if I work hard. I then got a call a few days later and got the job.

Interview Question – Would you be willing to relocate immediately if asked?   View Answer

Sales Counselor Interview

Sales Counselor
Cincinnati, OH

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

Interview Details – Wasn't a hard interview, they have a tough time getting people to take the job in the first place. Asked basic questions such as do I have any sales experience and what is the closest experience I have to sales.

Interview Question – He asked if I owned a car, but not because he wanted to make sure I got to work on time. He didn't tell me that I would be driving around uncompensated passing out passes. Other than that he just asked me about what was on my resume.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was told the job pays 7.70/hr but the great thing is, is that I can get promoted within four months and that GM's can make 70-80,000 (not true) and Weekend GM's can make 60-70,000 (not true). They didn't plan on keeping me longer than 4 months.
