    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Life Time Fitness (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    First started with a Phone call interview, which we immediately scheduled an in person interview. At the interview everything was going well, originally I applied for a receptionist position but after I told them that I was a licensed cosmetologist they wanted me to apply for a hairstylist position so I did. So called back to meet with another manager and schedule a practical, went in again for practical and another interview then after about 3 months of back and fourth they told me they decided to go with someone else.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Chanhassen, MN).

    Interview

    It felt very rushed and impersonal. Threw me right into the practical assessment scenarios without giving me a tour of the facility or any other background info on how the club is run. Felt like they didn't care if I wanted do there. More like they were trying to intimidate me.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Louisville, CO).

    Interview

    Sorry to say I had a very bad experience, actually 2, at Life Time Fitness / Athlinks. I applied a year ago for a Senior Software Engineer position. I went in for an in person interview which went well; it was straight-forward Java questions -- recursion, design a db schema, etc. They said they'd like to have me back in for a coding exercise, which I was happy to do (I've been a Java developer since the late nineties). When I got there, the exercises were in Scala. I reminded them that I didn't know Scala (their ad said it wasn't required). I offered to take home the test and learn enough Scala that evening to do the exercises and turn in the answers. They said I had to do it there, so I did my best for 1 1/2 hours, mostly thinking "I really should be at work". I didn't get the job. Unfortunately, I do have a male colleague who is also a Java developer that does not know Scala either who applied there at the same time. He was not asked to take the Scala test. He did get an offer.

    A year passed and I had been working in Big Data technologies which has been really great and interesting. I saw an ad for Life Time again. They were looking for a Java developer with Big Data technologies who wants to learn Scala. This one clearly said, learn Scala on the job, and I applied. Well, yes, this is getting to a "Fool me twice, shame on me" ending. I immediately got a response that they'd like an in person interview and that I should first take an at home coding exercise, which was great because I could see it was in Java. I spent the evening doing the exercises and submitted it. I got an email back that the job had been temporarily put on hold...then a week or two later it had been re-opened and they asked when I could come into the office. I provided times of my availability. I got a response saying that I had interviewed there a year ago and they don't want to have me in again...AFTER having me do a coding exercise. Very unprofessional and inconsiderate. I am curious about their development staff, because both of my experiences seemed very fishy, like they were interested in my technical qualifications, but...

    Fortunately the market's really good and it's not about getting that job per se, it's about how you treat people.

    Pros:
    They do have a very nice office in Louisville, CO.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Algonquin, IL) in May 2016.

    The interview process was pretty simple, you chat with the personal trainer supervisor about the position specifics (100% commission), what the job entails. Then a practical interview with another trainer, discuss progressions, regressions, and exercise cueing. then a final interview with general manager which is basically reciting their mission and values.
