Whether you are greeting a person at the door or answering emails you’ll be responsible for making sure everyone gets the information they need and feels taken care of from the moment that they first interact with you.
Office Management - A lot goes into maintaining an office, especially that of a busy fitness business. We will need you to be able to create and modify documents, perform clerical duties such as filing, copying, data entry, mailing, purchasing office supplies and maintaining inventory as well as fulfill other responsibilities.

These are the skills and characteristics that you must have already have in order to qualify for this position:

This means that you are clear, concise and above all, friendly in all interactions.
Exceptional Client Service Skills - You must be a person that loves to serve. Instead of seeing challenges you see opportunities to make our client experience better. All of our clients and prospective clients are VERY important to us and you must be relentless to find solutions for them.

Here is what we want from you:
Write a resume that includes your education, ALL prior work experience (yes, we even want to know if you mowed lawns as a teenager), and the skills that you possess. It should be 1-2 pages in length, but no longer.
Write a 100-200 word (we will count) cover letter explaining why you are the perfect person to fill this position. Include at least one of the core values in this cover letter. Include full contact information (name, address, phone, email) on this cover letter.
On a separate sheet of paper list at least three references with phone numbers and what your relationship is with the references. (i.e.- previous employer, college professor, etc).
Place all three documents in a manilla envelope.
Hand deliver this package to Chicago Fit Performance and ask for Kosta before 9:00 am M-F. If Kosta is not present you may leave it with the person at the front desk. All documents should be addressed to Kosta Shilev. Chicago Fit Performance is located at 1535 N Dayton Street, Chicago IL 60642.
Complete and submit the form at the bottom of this page so that we can match it up when we receive your resume.
If you followed the instructions to the letter (remember, we need a detail oriented person on our team), we will review your application. If we feel that you are a good prospect we will call or email you to set up a personal interview. If we feel that you are not qualified we will send you a courtesy email to thank you for your time. If you do not hear from us at all that means that you did not follow the instructions properly.

We will hire the first person that we feel is the right fit for our team. So, get your application in pronto! I look forward to reviewing it and hopefully meeting you personally.
Again, thank you very much for your interest.
P.S. This is not a corporate structure type job. We are a entrepreneurial driven small business. I move quickly to capitalize on opportunities. This is not the type of job where just showing up is good enough. Chicago Fit Performance means everything to me and our team. If you perform, you will be rewarded. I want nothing more than to find a person who takes a real interest in doing EXCEPTIONAL work and contributing to the growth of the business.
With all that said, enthusiasm and a positive attitude go a long way in my book. We can teach you the skills but can’t change your character. We are a positive team and choose to surround ourselves with like minded individuals to create an amazing work atmosphere. As long as you have the basic skills and characteristics I mentioned above along with a great attitude you’re definitely a candidate.
So, send us your resume today!
