    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Gold's Gym (Fullerton, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online, got a call back, and then I met with the assistant fitness manager a few days later. I will always be grateful for the opportunity that Gold's gave me when nobody else would. If it wasn't for Gold's Gym SoCal, I wouldn't have been able to get the experience necessary to become a private trainer. I learned a lot, and met a ton of like minded individuals.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Gold's Gym.

    Very laid back and professional at the same time. The manager who interviewed asked real questions to see how passionate I am about the field. They were very flexible in giving me time to decide, and very encouraging! Good pay rate as well.

    Reasons for Declining

    They offer decent money, but the location was too far. If I was closer, I would have said yes!
