    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods.

    Interview

    Quick to the point no more than 15 minutes. If they like you you will go on to a second interview with the store manager. They will ask you a lot of involvement questions as far as extracurricular activities. Maybe 6 to 10 questions. If you are a cashier you will have to take an assessment that tries to catch you in a lie. If you interview with them just tell them what they would like to hear!

    The process was quite lengthy. Phone interview, all day in person interview, final interview. Be prepared to talk to a lot of people and answer a lot of questions about your work history and answer your typical behavioral/situational questions.

    The process took several weeks (4-5 weeks) from start to finish.

    Interview

    Process took about 2 weeks. I received a call a few days later after applying to set up an interview. First had an interview with the operations manager, after the interview I took the "honesty test", and after that he said I was a prime candidate for the job and I would receive a call in a few days to set up a second interview with the store manager.

    Interview

    I applied online. About a week later I received a phone call to schedule an interview. I went to the interview and it was very chill. That could be because the manager was young and it went real smooth. The questions where not that hard. I think he was just looking for someone who was willing to work. We ended up talking about other stuff more than interview questions anyways. As long as you go in with a positive attitude, you should do fine.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods in March 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was at 11am and the manager who did my interview made me wait 15 minutes before she came to get me.

    Then asked me the same questions over and over but with different wording. Had second interview same day with the store manager who was super nice. Overall the interviews seemed promising for a great job - but after my first week I found myself hating this job more than anything else and going home crying because of the lack of training and communication.

    I applied online. The process took 7+ monthsinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online almost a year ago and received a phone call for an interview last Tuesday for this week Monday. Arrived on time and had a hard time finding someone who could direct me to the hiring manager. Was told to wait in the employee break room and waited for about 10 minutes before the store manager came and got me. He was pretty laid back and did brief interview of about 10 minutes, then I was asked to do an opinion survey. From there, I was told I got the job.
