    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods.

    Interview

    The interview was the usual. Went through two interviews and they both were pretty similar. They basically asked about customer service and when did i experience difficult customers. One of the managers that interviewed me was not as professional because of the way he exhibited his body posture. His feet were up on his desk while he was listening to me talk.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods (Queensbury, NY).

    Interview

    Unprofessional and was like a normal conversation between two people. Questions were easy to answer but had nothing to do with the job I was applying for. I ended up working in the Freight Flow and Operations Department. I wish I could have met my supervisor before I took the job. Was not what I had expected. Violent and enjoyed bullying employees.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods (Nampa, ID) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Got to my interview 10minutes early and was told it'd be 15-20minutes until the manager was ready for me. She came and got me and we walked to the back of store talking about how my weekend was. We got to the back "employee's only" section and she began asking me about my past work expierience, why I wanted to work for Them, and if I played/knew anything about sports. It was a very comfortable atnosphere, and my interviewer was so sweet! The interview lasted about 10/15 minutes. When I had answered her questions she had me take an "honesty test" which was just 55 questions about if marijuana and alcohol were ever acceptable at work. It was a quick little test. By the end of the interview she said she'd call me the next day at 1:45pm. When the next day came around, I ended up not getting a call, so I called at 8pm, and asked for the interviwer. She had apoligized for not calling me sooner, since the store was slammed that day. But she offered me the position and we scheduled a time and day for orientation. It was a positive and fun expierience!

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods (Casper, WY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was simple, and focused on the Sporting Goods aspect of the store. That's how they make their money, which is great, but they didn't ask any questions about my skillset or knowledge in administration. I could have been hired and known absolutely nothing about the job I was being hired to do.

    Interview Questions

    • This interview didn't have much in the line of tough questions. The hardest question they asked was "how have you helped someone gain confidence in a sports situation" and generally asking questions about my athletic background. This was all very simple, it just forced me to try and remember things from my high school sports career.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I told them what I was expected to be paid and the manager told me they could not pay that in a retail environment. I lowered my standards of pay but accepted the position. They seemed to know what they wanted to pay me before I got there and would not budge.

    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!
