    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Equinox Fitness.

    Interview

    Invited to come in for an open call interview day with a regional sales manager and regional director. Had a phone screener with HR who provided feedback I would be a perfect fit. Coming out of another field, I was most interested in sales training Equinox would provide as a foundation. Found the interviewer distracted until her boss came in mid-interview. He then asked all of the same questions the manager had along with a few new ones. Clearly the decision maker, I found him to be very rude and condescending all while telling me I would be a good fit for the position. Overall questions were moderate and mainly situational (not easy/not hard/grilled on sales tactics). Wrote incredibly detailed thank you notes to both and then received a "thank you for submitting your resume but we have decided to go with another candidate" email from HR. Asked for specific feedback, reiterating I had met two team members and a form email did not make sense. She re-pasted the previous response with no actual explanation. HR rep seemed young and disconnected to the internal team and job function. Overall a unprofessional experience which I am ok with not working out.

    Inside the Top-Secret Gym for The Super Fit (and Super Rich)

    What do we expect from a gym in 2016? Scented towels? Fancy grooming products? How about a retina scanner at the door? For the right (high) price, Equinox will give you all of that-but it wants a chunk of your soul, too. Carrie Battan reports on how Equinox turned sweating into a spiritual quest.
