    Personal Trainer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Equinox Fitness (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was ridiculously easy because they will hire anyone. I studied months for my ACE personal training certification and they didn't even ask me one question about it. None of the people in my group of new hires had any kind of certification and they hired them anyway. They will hire any one. They toss a bunch of stuff at the wall and they see what sticks.

    There was a quick phone interview...and in person interview...a group interview...and a job offer. There were probably 12 people in my group interview. I laughed to myself because some of them I felt did horrible during the interview...come to find out they hired EVERYONE. Doesn't hurt to take that chance when you are only paying $12 an hour and having members paying $200 a month. Not mad at them though. You can not knock the hustle.

    Personal Trainer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Equinox Fitness (Carlsbad, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview. I was put on speaker phone (not very professional.) She was more interested in about her than getting to know me. Typical questions asked. It was weird though, first being on speaker phone, and then not really responding to the my answers. At one time there was a long pause after I answered a questions...as if she was doing something else and forgot I was on the phone. And this was in the very beginning of the interview. No need to work for a person like that.

    Personal Trainer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Equinox Fitness (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Interview process wasn't bad at all. Went in for my initial interview and got asked to come to a group interview. Group interview consisted of an icebreaker and a couple group "exercises" (we did not workout). It was real easy going and mostly they just want to know if you're knowledgeable and know what you're talking about. Not much in depth discussion about the position itself and how things are done there. Which seemed a little strange to leave that out unless anyone asked questions. That was the only downside. Thanks to Glassdoor was I able to learn more about the company though.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Equinox Fitness.

    Interview

    Phone screen, one in person meeting. Fairly easy process. Interviewed with managers, this is not really something to worry about if you have some previous experience as a personal trainer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Equinox Fitness.

    Interview

    Applied online and the regional recruiter reached out for an initial interview. The phone interview was very brief and informational. Went over my resume and was able to ask questions about the company, role and compensation. Then I was invited to an in-person interview at one of their clubs. Went over my resume and the position a little more in-depth. Finally, I was invited to a final group interview at the club that was in need of PT's. At the final interview, they test your communication by playing connect the dot, give you about 20 mins to write a workout for a case study and do a squat assessment.
