    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at LA Fitness part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of types of classes to teach and lots of subbing opportunities; you are mostly left alone to do your own thing

    Cons

    you can't use your own music (and for some formats there are 2 CD choices)

    they treat part-time employees who get paid very little like we should be a slave to the company

    management is obsessed with verbage and being "in control" and spends a lot of time correcting how you say things instead of helping you solve real problems; I don't feel comfortable speaking to my boss because she has a problem with everything I do

    Expectations for (Activities directors) are super unclear. How to request time off, how to get sick pay, how to deal with strange scenarios is not explained. I wasn't even told what to wear until 6 months in....

    Salaries for fitness instructors never increase.

    They won't let tattoos show or men wear earrings.... this is 2017

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat activities directors like they are 18 with no work experience. Give helpful feedback and set clear expectations

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at LA Fitness (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online. My friend knew the manager and put a good word in for me. I received a call within three days. I got scheduled for an interview for the next day. I came in, the manager was super super nice and friendly. The interview lasted about 30-40 minutes. She even gave me a tour of the facility. She told me they would give me a call if I got the position. However, the questions she asked were quite difficult...
