Ecommerce Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Pittsburgh, PA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods in March 2014.

Interview Details – I applied for an open position in the Ecommerce Department. The next day HR called to talk about what my current position, the open position, and verify salary requirements. Next I spoke with the HR manager and talked in detail about my past and how the open position fit my background. Next a phone interview was set up with the Director of Ecommerce the following work day. I was told the interview would be 40 minutes. She called and indicated she had 20 minutes talk. I review my work history. Very few questions were asked. She indicated she has a few more candidates to interview and I will know, either way, if I had the job. I never heard back from Dicks.

Interview Question – Didn't ask questions since only 20 minutes was allocated for interview. I did 95% of all the talking.   Answer Question

Cashier/Customer Service Interview

Cashier/Customer Service
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods in September 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and was asked to come in for an interview the next week. They were misleading about giving me a job. When I applied I was in the middle of holiday season, which if your religion requires you to take lots of days off at random times of the year I don't recommend applying when you need to take off more time than usual. A week after the interview, after sending thank you notes and following up, I got an email saying that I did not get the job, but that they would keep my application on file.

Interview Question – The situational questions were hard. Make sure you think before answering.   View Answer
