    Interview Details

    Applied through campus/university recruiting; interviewed on campus for the first round. It was two 45 minute back to back behavioral questions interview. Nothing out of the ordinary. First guy was very disinterested in the whole process, while the second woman seemed to enjoy being there. Did not get a second Interview though they warned everyone they had been interviewing hundreds of students And had roughly 30 spots for the second round interview

    Recruiting Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods.

    Interview Details

    I was denied online, but the agency I was working with pushed my resume through. The hiring manager said she rejected me due to me applying for jobs at DSG outside the Human Resource field. I explained my interest in working for DSGs and how the jobs I applied to previously were similar to HR, such as Admin Assistant ect. Reluctantly, she scheduled me for an interview with the agency's referral. I had two back to back interviews with two representatives at the emasculate headquarters. While I appreciated the time, the interviews were not engaging. I answered their questions, but they did not offer any information to me that would excite me or engage me about the position. Rather dry and meaningless. They never got back to me, rather went through my agency.

    Drove over 8 hours to meet with the DM in Texas. He was rude and really uptight.
    Wanted the opportunity to speak with him and he seemed like i was there to inconvenience him.
    If that is the kind of people who work for this company, I'll keep looking for another company.

    There was one round of interviews and they came to campus for them. Had two half hour interviews with two different representatives from the company. Very personable and easy to talk to. They were open to answering questions asked and they really wanted to what types of questions you had prepared to ask.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods.

    Interview Details

    It is really laid back. You meet with the Store Manager. He ask you a few questions. All person has to do is be able to hold a conversation. Talk about sports and what you enjoy about retail. When it comes to hiring a person just needs to be ready for a few online videos about the departments. That process take about half a day.
