We are hugely proud to share that The Gym Group are among the winners of the annual Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards and have been recognised as one of the top 50 Best Places to Work UK in 2022. Coming in at number 25 we have been ranked amongst some other incredible organisations and are proud to be not only the smallest organisation listed but the only leisure provider recognised - what a great achievement! This award is particularly meaningful to us as it has been entirely determined by the amazing feedback our people past and present have shared on our Glassdoor page over the past year. We are incredibly proud of the dynamic, inclusive, and truly people focussed culture here at The Gym Group and a huge thank you goes out to all our employees who took the time to share their experiences on what it’s like to work with us – our success is down to you.

  1. Performance Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Gym Group (London, England) in Feb 2021

    Interview

    2 interview stages via Video calls
    1st stage 30min call running through the previous experience
    2nd stage 1h30m call present a task and follow up with generic, almost irrelevant, questions

    Pretty disappointing experience as they said they were looking for someone to start asap and at the second interview they mentioned June..
    Apart from the HR lady, none of the Heads looked welcoming, excited or interested in the candidate. I wonder how they motivate their teams if they try to onboard new staff like this... Gym is all about motivation and excitement at the end of the day
