Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Life Time Fitness.

Interview

It was a 3 step process. The first was a phone screening that was short. Second interview was an in person interview. Last was a practicum. The in person interview was pretty standard, asking me why I wanted to apply. He also asked me a lot about my background outside of training which I didn't really expect, so be prepared to answer that.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I had one in person interview with a manger and then had the second round practical. The practical was basically putting a manager through a short workout with a couple different circuits. Other fitness managers were watching as I was going through the workout. They then asked me a series of questions about my sales experience and went through mock conversations between a client and personal trainer.

    Interview

    5 interviews. While it was long, it was very thorough

    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.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the fitness manager. He asked basic questions, such as "what do we gain from hiring you" "why are you in the fitness industry". Very nice and respectable throughout the interview. He even allowed me to come and work out whenever I wanted.
