    • Not really a question but explained that there is little to no praise when conducting high sales. Just move on to the next person.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Finish Line.

    Interview

    Process was very unorganized. Was told to com in for a interview, but upon my arrival the manager was not there. A sales associate had to do the interview. Very suprising and disheartening because I really wanted this job.

    Interview

    Very easy, not a thing to worry about. Basically filled out the online application, and received a phone in literally two days. I was then scheduled an interview within the next week. Did it right in the middle of the mall, with the manager of the store, and the manager on duty.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Finish Line in January 2014.

    Interview

    The initial process is done online and remains true for the majority of retail chain sneaker stores as they usually do not accept in person solicitations and will only redirect you online, with the exception of a few I wont name. It is important to pass the online personality test to receive a call back, it's easy stuff if you answer according to what type of employee the company is looking for. Take little to no consideration of your actual personality and get your foot in the door, Assuming you actually like sales. As far as the interview goes expect the standard questions, availability and a few sales related others. Also don't forget the silly yet most important " Can you sell me this pen?"

    "Tell me about yourself"
    Why Finish Line"
    Past employer and friends opinion on yourself. ex. if I was to ask one of your family members about you what is the first thing they would say. etc.
    "Favorite and least favorite parts of most recent job"
    "Job debrief" followed by "Do you have any further questions"

    Interview Questions

    • There was a couple of questions I was not prepared for and were introduced as silly questions used to understand the potential employee on a more personal level. They were as follows:
      "What is your favorite animal and why"
      If I were to look in the trunk of your car right now what would I find"
      ended by "Can you sell me this pen?"

    Interview

    I submitted an online application, which was quite lengthy. I'm assuming I didn't pass the online personality test because I wasn't called for an interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Finish Line (Knoxville, TN) in September 2012.

    Interview

    I had applied online and about a month later they had called me for a phone screening. They asked about my basic knowledge of shoes and stuff. Then about a hour later they called back setting up an appointment. I go in for my appointment. It didn't even last 10 minutes. Asked basic questions. Then they said the main manager would call me back in a couple of days. I haven't heard back from them yet. Wondering if I should call them.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult about it at all. Only thing I wonder about is that they told me they were very interested in me but I haven't heard back from them.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Finish Line (Kansas City, KS) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The interview part was one of the easiest and straightforward interviews I have ever been in! When I had got a call from the manage wanting an interview; which was not even a week after submitting my application, the manager was very nice. After I walked into the store, the managar and I walked to Panera Bread (the store was located in a outlet mall) the interview was pretty awesome. He didn't ask any random-like question. I was totally honest with all my answers and before you know, we are walking back to the store to get my name tag.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Finish Line (Raleigh, NC) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Down to Earth guy. Very cool. The interview was super easy. He just asked was I comfortable working with the public and asked if I had a flexible schedule and that was about it. I haven't heard back from him yet because he went on vacation for a few days, but I hope to hear back from him soon so I can start working there! No need to be nervous at all. Kind of a waste for how far I had to travel but still was an easy and relaxed interview.
