I have a job interview lined up to work as a personal trainer at one of the gyms in my area. What kind of questions can I expect them to ask? I'm assuming they won't have alot of questions about how I would train someone but would be more interested in customer service exp./sales experience?
Anyone been through one of these interviews/know what to expect? The gym is part of a chain that has 10-15 gyms in the area.
They may very well ask about training someone. The interviewee needs to train the fitness manager at our gym in addition to the usual questions around sales, communications, mentoring questions.

They may ask about your experience and training knowledge, what your personal fitness goals are, why they should hire you, why you want the job, they may ask you about situations and what you would do if you were in them, and they might ask you general questions about dealing with adversity (Ie "Give me an example of when you had to deal with a rude client. How did you handle it and what steps did you take to resolve the issue?" type of things).
I would do as ddegroff said and wear a nice shirt and slacks minimum. Maybe bring a change if you think they may take you through the ropes.
