Description: The passage below mainly contains the popular topic with the idea of la fitness employee portal. The author is going to express his opinion about his experience of the messy hiring process he went through when working at LA Fitness.
Welcome back to my channel, today I wanted to bring you a video on my experience hiring process I went through for working at LA Fitness, so there is an LA Fitness very close to me, I want to say it’s about a town over probably about a 10-15 minute drive from my house.
I was going to that gym at the time, because I liked the style of it, I liked all of the freeways, I liked the atmosphere a lot more than some of the other gyms that I had been to before.
I don’t want to spend 50 dollars every month paying for this, because I had multi Club access and guest privileges, I wanted to get a job there, because I saw that they were hiring and I wanted to leave the job at the time.
So I applied on indeed, because that’s where I first saw it, I went in for my interview which was about 15 minutes early end up having to wait an additional 15 minutes after my interview is supposed to start, because the general manager that was supposed to do my interview was filling out a new hire paperwork for somebody else.
I’m here for an interview, it’s like cannoli, like an appointment with me for a reason and I ended up talking to the people at the front desk and we’re hiring for a janitorial staff, do you want to do sales? I was realistic, I don’t want to do sales anymore.
So they basically told them that they were going to tell the general manager that I had left and I was coming back for an interview with the operations manager to do either janitorial or front desk.
I ended up going in for my interview, I think my sales interview was probably about Friday, so my interview for operations, I want to be about Tuesday, when I came back for it and I ended up going in that day for my interview, I’m sitting behind the desk.
They basically started training me on front desk, there was no interview and gave me the new hire paperwork, told me to get my making information and come back and we fill out the i-9 the next day.
I ended up going back the next day, I was going in to sign a couple of things on my i-9, because it was all electronic and end up working for our chef, so the whole hiring process was very messy in my opinion compared to other places I’ve worked.
The interviews didn’t happen, nothing seemed to be all the other jobs that had applied for previously were very professional, they asked you questions like there was none of that which I mean I had talked to the operations managers before we knew me.
But it wasn’t even like we sat down, I’ll offer you the job, it was like lochia, here’s the paperwork, it was very confusing or about to close shifts and then I started my classes, so he wanted me to come in and do janitorial sets like 5:00 a.m.
I had my other job on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, I had to be there between 9:00 and 9:30 for my sales merchandising job which is probably about 45 minutes away, so I could only work till about 8:00.
Meanwhile, I have summer classes four nights a week until 9:00 or 9:30 45 minutes away from where I lived, so I wouldn’t get home and get the bed 11:00 11:30, because that’s our unwinding getting all your stuff in getting ready for bed falling asleep, it was late for me to have to get up at 4:15 in the morning to get to work for 5:00.
It was very hard for me. I am more of a night person, not a morning person, if I was in a schedule to get up early and go to bed early, then I could do it, there is no problem, but I was not in that schedule with my night classes.
I couldn’t make that schedule work, so I worked Monday and Tuesday 5:00 to 9:00, I end up working Wednesday 5:00 to 8:00 and also at that point, my grandmother was on her deathbed.
Unfortunately, she was basically my second mother and I’m going to say for now, so that was very hard to go with night classes, having to get up barely, getting any sleep, I ended up, I don’t call out, I ended up calling out.
Thursday and Friday that week, I told him I was fine, this is happening at my grandma, I’m stressed and she retired, I still have classes like night classes, it’s very hard for me to go in at 5:00 in the morning and only works for three hours, not like I was getting a substantial amount of hours get into that schedule.
I didn’t have class that went ten times easier, but I had night classes the next coming three weeks, do you have any chef that can pay you? I don’t know anything, you’re available, I don’t have anything that fits your availability.
Then I didn’t text him for about two weeks after those three weeks, then I get a text and he knows I work at GNC, I’ve brought samples in there from the store before getting people to come back into our stores.
He was going to give me hours, some of staff want to know if you can help him up with a discount, I’m sorry, but I’m not going to give anybody a discount, if you’re not giving me hours, let alone I’m not going to give anybody my discount, because that’s against GNC policy and that’s the company that I’ve been with a lot longer than ounce.
I’m not risking my job, I’m sorry, unless you’re going to give me hours even though I wasn’t going to do that, because I wanted hours, that is a quote in all cabs and I responded like eight hours later with all caps and haven’t heard from his sense I was talking about a month ago.
This video seems to be a little bit more disorganized and a lot of my other videos are like that, but that’s because the entire process of working there and everything was very disorganized.
One of those people likes to say that he got a free gym membership, so I cancelled my membership, because I was going to LA Fitness prior working there and I was very uncomfortable going in.
If I wasn’t on the schedule that week, you know what I mean, I didn’t go for three weeks, but I was also busy with working my other job school and doing all this other stuff, so it was like not worth it at the end of the day.
I unfortunately do not go there anymore, because I did cancel my membership and it was already like $250 to start that membership, because you pay first last your annual and your month like the next month basically upfront.
I don’t want to go back, I didn’t want to deal with it, I’m not setting up a new contract, it’s not like a different gym where there are a lot of staff and no chairs, I feel you get judged for it especially by the staff.
So I don’t want to deal with it the whole company, at least in that gym was disorganized, I’ll work there, did I ever work there? I don’t know, hope you enjoyed this kind of show that I went through le fitness.
Somebody can get some entertainment out of it, because I personally don’t understand what happened or why or what’s going on, all I know is that I don’t work there anymore, so thank you for your time, have a great day.
