Anonymous Employee in Tulsa, OK

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Tulsa, OK).

Interview

There were 3 Interviews, one by phone with one of the Head Trainers at the facility; an interactive interview, which was a mock training session where I acted as the trainer and was given two "clients" who were other trainers, to train. Then the final interview was with the club manager and programs director to make sure that I was a good fit for the entire club.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Life Time Fitness (Charlotte, NC) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was relocating to the area where I applied. This process went on for around three months with 3 separate phone interviews. When I got to the area I went in for a practical interview. This was fine and the training manager was very nice and professional. Said he'd be in touch soon to let me know. Had ANOTHER phone interview with someone out of New Jersey. That was also fine. Then waited around 4 weeks for scheduled interview with the GM. Had their mission statement memorized, but not their 3 behaviors so was asked to reschedule. I accepted another position with a different company and thanked them for their consideration. *Did not interview with any women throughout this process, and did not appear to be any women in management roles in the location I was in.*

    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.
