    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at LA Fitness (UK).

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was very fast and pitchy meaning the interviewer was trying to sale me on the job. And the opportunity to make lots of money sounded great only if I was about to make the sales, otherwise the pay would have been little to none.

    MEMBERSHIP COUNSELOR Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at LA Fitness (UK) 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 Questions
    • 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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at LA Fitness (UK) in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had a scheduled interview with the general manager, but he was late so I interviewed with the assistant manager. I am a student about to finish my degree and I was told by the assistant manager (who seemed to really like me) to say I wasn't going to school anymore and that I just really wanted the money. After words I was told to consider myself hired. Later that day I ended up interviewing with the general manager who after a quick look at my resume and all of two questions said I was hired. All I had to do was meet with the district manager and I would be starting by the next week. The district manager did not show up for our first two meetings, I caught him on our third meeting and he was an hour late. The interview consisted of him telling me how much money I could make and how quickly I could move up. When I asked questions about the actual services of the company and how they plan on staying competitive over the next 5 years he did not really have an answer for me. He told me I was hired however and that I would start the next day at either one of two locations. He told me he had to make some calls and gave me his personal cell to contact him within the next couple hours to find out where to go to fill out the paperwork. He never answered my call and his employees never seemed to know where he was.
