    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bally Total Fitness.

    Interview

    really straight forward. no experience required, need to be 18 and willing to work whatever shift they have available. the interview is with the general manager and you should hear back fairly quickly if you are selected. if you have the ability to communicate properly with another adult you will be fine. if not, well... getting the job isn't the worst of your problem. if you prepare with a few of the basic sales questions like rebuttals and the pen test. yes the pen test. then you will be fine. just be energetic and willing to learn.

    Interview

    The interview process contained mostly behavior and adaptability questions rather than describing experiences that pertained to utilizing specific skills. The interviewer was focusing on finding the right personality to fit their organization rather finding a certain skill set to fit their organization.

    Interview

    Fitness manager was pleasant. He reviewed my resume and hired me on the spot. He didn't ask a lot of questions since the position is mostly commission-based. You have to sell training in order to make money there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Bally Total Fitness (Brooklyn, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Interview with Manager. Asked about experience and clientele experience. Overall it wasn't bad however I feel like the entire process was disorganized and messy. They encouraged you to sell yourself out and not actually help people but to keep tem coming to you as long as possible. Overall, wasn't a good environment.

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bally Total Fitness (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I was promoted from Sales Manager position through a two-tier interview, first with the District Manager, and then with the Area VP. Since we all worked together closely, it was nothing more than a friendly conversation about the understanding of the role of General Manager and the expectations of the company.

    • Again, it was a friendly conversation with my superiors whom I came to know closely with the most unorthodox question being, "What would your mom tell me about your personal deficiencies in the workplace?"   1 Answer

    Interview

    I was called in initially for an interview at the main office (not the gym) with the district manager. The guy was energetic and liked talking about the company. Talked a lot about starting from the very bottom of the food chain and now being a district manager. The interview seemed to be more about him than the company it self. Second round I met with the personal training manager basic questions about weight lifting an cardio. Two weeks later I was offered the job.
