    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.
