Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Phoenix, AZ) in April 2015.

Interview

I called after I submitted my application and followed up. I scheduled an interview with the Aquatics Manager. The interview was very straight forward and the questions were based around teaching and children. I was phone interviewed by the Department head shortly after and she gave the go ahead to hire me. Overall, the process was easy.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Life Time Fitness.

    Interview

    I applied on the website and within a few days I received an email requesting an interview. I called and set up the interview and went in. There was a group of people and we had to swim and then individual talk to the management. We discussed past experience and how you would benefit Lifetime. You also had to swim 100m relay. After the meeting they had us wait and then and there I was told I had a job. They gave me a packet and told me I need to memorize the mission statement. I set an appointment for the second meeting at that point. I came in for the second meeting and spoke to someone in the HR department, I recited the mission statement and then answered questions about what I was interested in gaining from Lifetime. I was put into the system at that time and they also set up my free membership.

    A lot of focus on whether you know the Mission and Vision of the company and not whether or not you know how to do the job.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Garland, TX) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Interview questions were basic. Laid back but straight forward. There are two interviews. After the first interview, I was required to swim to prove that I knew how. The second "interview" is shadowing to see if you're a fit.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Saint Louis Park, MN) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I began the application online but did not complete it. The next morning I got a call from the department director and was asked about my experience and was asked to come in for an interview even though I didn't officially apply for the position. The department director was 20 minutes late for the interview. I was asked a few questions about the company's values and a few about my experience with swimming and children. The interviewer left and 10 minutes later brought out the general manager to interview me. I was asked questions about myself, which the GM just repeated back to me. It was just strange. Neither interviewer made eye contact or seemed to care about bringing me on as an employee. They just want to make sure you have a pulse, can speak English, and aren't crazy.

    Negotiation

    None. Pay is determined by the amount of experience you have based on their point system and training hours are minimum wage.
