    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Merritt Athletic Clubs in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    What a joke the Group Interview process turned out to be. No wonder Merritt has never expanded beyond the Baltimore area if all of their business practices are similar. As a person with many years of professional experience coupled with an advanced degree, I assumed Merritt would treat me with a little dignity and respect. I was definitely wrong to even think this. I was called to the Towson location for the Group interview by Andrew Barranco. Upon arrival, i was told to sit in the waiting area where Andrew would get us soon. Andrew showed up on time and first impressions were that even though he represents Merritt, he doesn't utilize their facilities. Andrew proceeded to take me and six high school kids to a room in the rear of the facility. Once there, we sat around a conference table and were joined by Coleen, who could relate better with the HS kids since she was one herself less than 5 or 6 years ago. The whole process was one of the most unprofessional experiences i witnessed in any interview process!!

    Reasons for Declining

    The initial impressions of this company through their hiring practices tell me that they have no respect nor do they show any dignity for the club management. They also do not want a manager, they want a salesman. Management of the individual clubs will be micromanaged from sbove. I now understand their extremely high club manager attrition rate.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Merritt Athletic Clubs in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    My interview was horrible there was no interest in why I chose to work for the company an the manager just looked like she wanted to rip my head off he didn't really give me a chance to speak so I could let her understand why I would be a good pick she talked for 98% of the interview and then stopped and then said 2 days later when I called that she is perusing other options like how can you judge a potential candidate without letting them speak she acted like she hated her life and when I came in for my interview she acted like I was a waste of her time not something I would want in a supervisor anyway. It's a great gym but horrible to work for from what I have witnessed

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Merritt Athletic Clubs in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was surprised that after a phone interview and two follow-up interviews, no one ever called. If an applicant interviews with your company the least you can do is say thanks, but no thanks. Or just return a call so the applicant knows where they stand!
