    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at SlimGenics in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for Slimgenics on Indeed and got called back for interview two days later. When I arrived, it was obvious it was a group interview. There were four us, including myself. We were told to bring our resumes and were brought back into a "classroom". The manager had us introduce ourselves and explain why we are interested in working at slimgenics. They explained the morals and mission of company, the pay and benefits, hours, etc.

    Shortly after that, we were individually interviewed in another room. The interview was fast and easy.

    Weight Loss Counselor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SlimGenics (Cleveland, OH) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was complete joke. They hire anyone with a pulse. Easy job to get but don't take it, you will be sorry you do. They ask you a bunch of questions but what they are really looking for is .... Are you willing to put your morals and your empathy for humankind aside to sell people a non refundable weightloss program that they don't need? They want to know if you will do anything to get them to buy 500.00 supplements a month that don't work? They want to know if you are the type of person that will take their car payment or mortgage so the company can make a sale. They want the sale on the spot, if the person gets out of the center without purchasing they never come back so they want all the money that day. They want to know that you can do that.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you believe in supplements?   1 Answer
    • How are you in selling an over priced program that these people don't need, to people who are disgusted with their weight and health? They can't afford what ur selling but can you sell it?   1 Answer
    • How are you at high pressure sales?   1 Answer
    • Do you like to have any time for your family   1 Answer
    • They asked if I would work every Saturday til 1p?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. You will get 10 dollars an hour.no raise ever. You have no say in your schedule and you don't find out your weekly schedule til 2 days before the week starts.you can't switch with coworkers because they are never staffed. The turnover is horrific.

    Program Advisor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SlimGenics in October 2015.

    Interview

    Masked as a nutrition company, really all about the sales once I got to the interview. The interviewing manager was incredibly insulting. I live a very healthy lifestyle and have lost a lot of weight on my own and am confident in myself. He told me I should get on the weight loss program so I can be more confident and people would take me seriously. So inappropriate, rude and telling of what kind of company this really is.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me a product you can't live without... sell it to me.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Insulting and rude, I would never work for a person or company like this!

    Program Advisor Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SlimGenics (Denver, CO) in March 2014.

    Interview

    One in person interview before getting a call back. The Area Manager will tell you about how you have the potential to make 40k a year which is true but you will probably not make that. The interview process is easy and very conversational. Be yourself and be upbeat because you will be working face-to-face with clients.
