    I have been working at Arthur Murray Dance Centers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get to help people and change peoples lives every day. I’ve had students tell me I’ve saved their marriage, I’ve had students call the studio their only family, and I’ve had students tell me I’ve saved their life. That’s only a few examples.

    A Second pro is you will be able to dance all day long if you like, you can exercise at work, it’s great!

    A third pro is you meet so many people and the staff is so fun to work with.

    A fourth pro is there are so many promotion opportunities. You could be a teacher, a manager, a franchisee, a judge, a traveling consultant, a professional dancer, a world champion, work at AMI Home office, travel around as a speaker. There are so many opportunities.

    You make a lot of money. It might take a few years to get up there, but after a while you will be making more then all your friends.

    You will never be bored at work

    It’s cool to tell people you’re a professional athlete

    Cons

    Like going to college there is time where you will be improving yourself while making minimum wage, but if work hard you will be making plenty of money in no time.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the free training and support

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Arthur Murray Dance Centers (Roanoke, VA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I had interviews over 2 days a total of about 4 hours. They asked me about my work and dance experience and a lot of different questions to figure out my personality. At the end they told me I would do well at AMDC, but that particular studio was looking for a different personality. Then they gave me tips for applying to other AMDC studios: different cities to apply to, some of my strengths to develop and capitalize on, and some questions to expect in interviews. Studios will be more willing to hire people who want to make a career out of it.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your ideal career path and what steps are you taking to get there? Why AMDC? Why this city? How do you act in different social situation? Describe your personality   Answer Question
