Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Life Time Fitness in July 2013.
Interview Details – Initial communication by phone with Department Head. We arranged an interview within the week.
The first interview was at the gym on a Friday with the Department Head. She basically read questions off a script, never wrote anything down. I got the distinct impression this was all a formality. She was very nice but didn't seem to care very much if I would actually be good at the job or not. She invited me back at the end of the interview for a second interview with the General Manager the following Monday. She gave me a piece of paper that had the company's Vision and Mission printed on it, and also our departmental Vision and Mission. She told me to memorize these because I would probably need to know them for the second interview.
The second interview was supposed to be on the Monday with the GM, but he didn't bother to show up for it (something, I learned later, was pretty standard there). Instead, I interviewed with the sales manager. The interview consisted of the following quetions:
What is LifeTime Fitness' Vision? What does it mean to you?
What is LifeTime Fitness' Mission? What does it mean to you?
That was all. I was sent to the lobby to wait and found out that day I was hired, because I had memorized those two things. That is the sole basis upon which I was hired.
Interview Question – You are required to know the company's vision and mission by heard for your second interview. If you don't know them, you *will not* get a job. Guaranteed. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. The job is minimum wage, and they have ridiculous scheduling practices. The up side is you are paid by the minute, so as long as you clock in and clock out on time, you'll be paid for your full shift regardless of any other circumstances (ie: they don't try to rip you off by asking you to come early or stay a few minutes late without pay).
