    I worked at Active Wellness full-time (More than a year)


    Active Wellness is an industry leader that cares deeply about their employees, members, and clients. If you work hard and are passionate about helping your teammates and the members there is plenty of room for growth within the growing company. The leadership team is comprised of caring individuals that push the industry in innovation and creativity. You have the flexibility to operate and create within the guidelines of the company.

    Bill McBride gave me my start and through the years has given me every opportunity to grow within the organization. His leadership and ability to challenge people while supporting them along the way helped me grow beyond what I thought was possible at times.


    As with most companies in the space, finding a solid work/life balance especially since 2008 has been a challenge. As with any start-up company that is growing staff is asked to wear several different hats.

    Advice to Management

    While Active Wellness is a growing, energetic company I would encourage leadership to find ways to slow down at times and enjoy the ride. It is all too common for companies to focus on growth as a new company that sometimes you don't appreciate the journey that it takes to get there.

    IT Systems Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Active Wellness (San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.


    HR emailed me to setup an appointment for a phone interview.

    I set the appointment. HR did not contact me at the appropriate time.

    I contacted my contact at HR twice.

    I received no reply. a few days after my second inquiry I received an automated email saying I was unqualified for the job. (I have 10 years experience directly related to the position I applied for)

    Incredibly unprofessional behavior.
