    I have been working at GoodLife Fitness full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work enviroment , great members, good pay if you are ready to work and respect your dueties and responsibilities. Basically, everyone wants to help you and make sure you are happy at work every day.

    Cons

    Benefits are average , you can always ask for time off if needed due to medical, vacation or family. Be prepared for long hours, clear expectations and clear goals. IF you hit all of the above you will be recognized and noticed . Easy to move up if you have work ethics .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on customer satisfaction, improve benefits plans for associates, make more flexible vacation system

    Personal Trainer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at GoodLife Fitness.

    Interview Details

    Met for interview at gym location. Manager was 20 minutes late for the interview, and showed up wearing jogging pants and a t-shirt. He proceeded to tell me that in this company, trainers are essentially entrepreneurs rather than employees- having to get all their own clients, book all their own work and not being supplied with any shifts beyond that. He said it was not uncommon for new employees to make nothing in the first one or two months they worked there, and that it had taken him several months to get to the point where he was earning $600 a month as a trainer.

    Interview Questions
    • He then proceeded to start the questions by asking "What makes you want to work here?" A fairly normal question for a more normal job, but in this context, a pretty extreme case of assuming the sale. When I told him I had a lot of questions to ask before I decided whether I wanted to work there or not, he got visibly upset, and said "That's gonna be a problem for me right there," and proceeded to try and describe this as though it were a sign of lacking dedication.   View Answer
