    Kids Activities Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    interview process was the most difficult and detail oriented that I had ever been to. Interview first with the kids activities manager then with the building manager. Building manager was very out of the ordinary questions to see overall personality and work ethic. Make sure to be very specific.

    I applied online – interviewed at Life Time Fitness.

    Interview Details

    4 separate interview plus one presentation to personal training staff. Way to long. Was not told how long the process was upfront. Once the general manager wants you, all of the other interviews are pretty much formalization to make sure your not a real F%&$ up.

    Assistant Department Head of Aquatics Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Life Time Fitness in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Honestly I sat through the entire interview and felt like it went really well. Then the aquatics department head says "do you have any questions for me?" And I said "yes, could you give me a play by play of a day in the life of someone in this position" and he replies with "oh, actually we only hire assistant department heads from within so you would have to start as an $8 an hour lifeguard."

    So I seriously sat through the entire interview just to find out that they weren't even hiring for the position I was there for. I have seven years of lifeguarding experience in total, four of those being managerial experience. I also have an undergrad degree. You really think I'm interested in interviewing to be an $8 an hour lifeguard. I've been making over that since I was 17 years old. I felt like I was deceived and lied to. BEWARE!

    Corporate Office Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chanhassen, MN

    Interview Details

    Rather laid-back interview process, considering the size of the corporation. Friendly recruiter did a phone interview and asked the expected questions about my experience. Company culture seemed to value fitness and health; the people I saw were attractive and fit. Office seemed like beige cubeland. The only lunch option was the club cafe across the treeless parking lot.

    Lifecafe Supervisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Life Time Fitness in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Typical interview asked basic questions about previous experience, availability, and compensation. Was then given scenarios to describe how I'd handle the situation. Was also asked how I maintained a healthy way of life and told them the many ways I personally maintain a healthy way of life; was then told "we were looking for the answer Lifetime maintains the healthy way of life by providing diet, exercise, mental, & spiritual health." I then asked if I was supposed to tell them my personal healthy ways or how the company works. Interviewer responded with, "your answer was not wrong just not the one we were looking for." This came off unprofessional and condescending to me personally. The employers were very arrogant with the way they talked about the company. Did not feel very welcome.

    Interview Questions
    • Was asked "How much are you worth?" Was also asked to go up to someone random and just talk to them for 10-15min about anything.   View Answer
