    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Retro Fitness (North Haven, CT) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Long. Met with the Fitness manager first and then had to meet with him again to "train" him. Then eventually met with the owners. The fitness manager at the time was very easy to talk to and made the interview process easy. The owners were tougher and made me feel less confident about having the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Retro Fitness (East Norriton, PA) in December 2015.

    Applied through Indeed.com, was called a few days later. Met with the General Manager and the Personal Training Manager and answered a few basic "tell us about yourself" questions. The Personal Training Manager then took me for a tour around the gym and explained different features. The owner was running late, but eventually met with me and asked nearly the same exact questions. I was offered the position over the phone the next day.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Retro Fitness.

    Interview

    Met with club manager who confirmed my credentials, asked a few questions, and was hired on the spot. They have a relatively high turnover rate for instructors, as they pay less than most other gyms. If you are just starting out, this is a great gym to work for, but they pay less per class than other gyms.

    Front Desk Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Retro Fitness (Jacksonville, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was conducted by the local franchise's Director of Operations and the club's General Manager. Generally informal, they primarily seek someone to fill a specific shift availability (i.e. weekday closing shifts, or weekend opening shifts only). If applicant cannot fulfill shift requirements, likelihood for employment is slim. Interview questions consist of discovering the applicant's past sales experience, customer service roles, applicant's methods for resolving billing or general customer complaints and former experience in the fitness industry. The role of front desk associate is most often filled by upbeat, positive and energetic individuals, who preferably have a passion for health and fitness.

    Interview Questions
