Application

I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Planet Fitness (Shelby Township, MI) in April 2015.

Interview

Interview process is long and arduous. They really can cut most of those questions in the interview guide. Some questions are irrelevant to the job. Prepare for anything when going in.

    phone interview, in person and then a group interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Planet Fitness (Toledo, OH) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I arrived and met with a rep. from Human Resources. She reviewed my resume and asked me details about my current position, why I was considering leaving my current employer. She also had me walk through a typical day with my current employer. Then she asked questions about my expectations of the job, then the interview questions. The interview was conducted in the open on the gym floor at one the tables - it was quite loud and at time difficult to hear.

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Planet Fitness.

    Interview

    Pretty much your standard interview. The usual "role playing" how you would handle situations. Sat down with supervisor and training supervisor. That was a little different. Very little questioning on health and fitness which was a bit surprising.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Planet Fitness (Vancouver, WA).

    Interview

    Group interview. Four of us, two of which were applying for completely different positions. They made it clear they were expecting quick turnover, and laughed it off frequently. All four hired on the spot, after answering maybe two laughable questions each.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Planet Fitness (Syracuse, NY) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Initial interview seemed to go very well. I had interviewed with a GM of another location, whom told me she was “absolutely sending me to the next step”. I was told it would be a week or less before they get in touch with me. Fast forward two weeks, and the manager whom conducted the initial interview is impossible to get ahold of, and does not return phone calls - I had to call their store three separate times over the course of 1 week just to finally get in touch with her. Absolutely atrocious experience; and speaks to the overall disorganization in their process.
