After agreeing to drive an hour to the interview, I had to wait an additional hour to meet with Curtis, apparently the VP. Not once did he come out to speak to apologize that he was running behind. Even though the job was not a fit for me, this type of treatment towards interviewees, is definitely not a polished look for LA Fitness.
Well first i waited over 2 hours for my interview, then when i finally was able to start my interview he didnt seem interested in my work experience and what i can do for the company. He asked unnecessary questions like what is the last movie i watched and what i like to do when im at home which i felt like had nothing to do with the job.
Well, for starters, the person who set up my interview gave me a location that took me to them middle of nowhere, (30 mins from my house in morning traffic) and then to another location which was the WRONG LA Fitness. Come to find out the location was right by my house the whole time. Then, when I get there they don't accept my certification (NASM), when it CLEARLY says on my resume that I am NASM Certified, so why did you even set the interview up in the first place and have me do all of that for nothing? Would it have killed you to actually read my resume, so you would know I wouldn't be qualified for the postion, or would you rather me call in to my current job (losing money) to do all of that for nothing. VERY UNORGANIZED and very disappointing. If you're NASM Certified, don't apply. I'll tell you ahead of time what they won't bother to.
I felt like I did well in the interview. Just not fun waiting for over an hour and seeing the lack of professionalism around in this location. Glad that wasn’t my main location.
Simple and to the point, LA fitness wants aggressive go getters that want to win. If that's you then the interview is short but you better not over sale yourself. But very professional and fair all the way around. And to correct some of the comments below they done promise the world they just show you your earning potential. It's up to you to go get it. Most people can't and they blame anything and everything but themselves but the few that that stick it out and grind will be rewarded with a club of your own and yes General Managers make 65k to 150k.
It was mainly a walk-through and and general interview questions.
