Ridiculous recruitment process. Very stressful and unnecessary assessment activities. Why do you want to work for David Lloyd’s? ... “because I’ve got bills to pay and I’m quite passionate about not starving to death.” They’re just ridiculous. Doing activities involving tin foil, rockets, kinder eggs and m&ms. Never in my life have I ever experienced a more stupid and pointless process. I don’t get why they don’t just interview a few candidates and then hire? They make it out to be some sort of hunger games. It’s so unnecessary. I’ve been to 6 of these assessments and 3 different clubs and I’ve stopped applying now. My first 2 assessments they invited almost 30 people to each assessment and hired 2. The last assessment 25 candidates and only hired 1 person. I’m convinced this is a sales tactic because around 50% of the unsuccessful candidates apparently end up joining the gym due to loss of hope and disappointment, not for the job but for the free gym membership. That £90 free gym membership gets dangled in everyones faces and for the majority of the candidates this is why they applied. So what do they do after? They join up. It’s very clever. I almost fell for it myself. They probably make about £500-£1000 every time they do an assessment. One club had 4 assessment days each with 25-30 people in it and were only hiring 2 people. That’s just cruel. That’s up to 120 candidates! 118 unsuccessful. Probably a good 50 will join the gym because in the assessment 40% of the evening they focus on what David Lloyd’s offers. It’s all dangled in front of you. Best to apply if you know someone who already works in David Lloyd’s otherwise you don’t stand a chance and they’re not interested in you or your life goals, they are simply selling a membership. I’ve seen so many of the jobs I’ve applied for get re advertised so I’m assuming candidates weren’t suitable but why not re select people from the assessment? I’ll tell you why, because another assessment means more sales. I now work in recruitment and i can’t stand companies that do this, it’s totally unfair and all about money. Do not fall for this and be cautious when applying.
