    Anonymous Employee in Baton Rouge, LA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Planet Fitness (Baton Rouge, LA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process for me was pretty straight forward. They asked if I was certified and to see if I was willing to not personally train but to instruct people on how to use the equipment.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Planet Fitness (Everett, WA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Didn't even interview. Was part of another gym that Planet Fitness bought. I think normally they do a formal interview with background and drug test, but I'm not sure. I think the process may take a week or longer to complete.

    Suttle interview process. Took about a week. I walked in and Introduced myself to the GM, interviewed with the AM, then back to the GM, then to the Regional. Fun experience, nothing to complain about. Started immediately and got the chance for advancement fairly quickly. Over thought the toughness on the interview.

    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.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    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.
