    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Academy Sports & Outdoors in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Did an application 2 weeks prior to getting an interview. They called to set up an interview on a friday. I went in and sat down with 2 leads, the apparel team manager and the cashier team lead. The only reason why the apparel team lead interviewed me was because no other manager was available. They were pretty cool and just wanted to see if you're dedicated and hardworking. Basic interview questions and it went smooth. They said they got a good vibe and told me I should expect a call with in a week.

    Got a call that following tuesday and was told to come in to accept the offer. I did and now I'm just waiting on the background check.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Academy Sports & Outdoors in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    When the hiring manager comes up to you, shake their hand, reply to whatever they say with "thank you for this oppurtunity i really appreciate it."Management will come on strong and bombard you with all types of questions. Mostly about your previous jobs, in what area you would want to work, and what skills you have.
    For some reason they like people with previous experience. I don't know why, it's just a retail job how much experience do you need? If any at all? Good luck getting hired here.

    I just wasn't picked. But they called me over 2 months later and kept me on the phone for over 20 minutes because they were trying to find whoever looked at my application. I don't know why they didn't just find the person BEFORE they called me and wasted my time.

    Honestly, just don't apply here. It's a waste of time.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Didn't hear back for weeks. Went to store to possibly apply in person, manager wrote down my name, and called me for interview 4 hours later. Simple questions: Are you still interested in cashier position? Are you available until closing time/weekends? Are any relatives working for Academy? What do you expect to be paid?

    Interview Questions
    • Didn't really know how to answer the question on how much to be paid. Since it was just an entry level job I expected to paid minimum wage.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Academy Sports & Outdoors in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    The phone interview basically just asked questions like when can you work, what do you expect from the job, and what are your hobbies. After he finished the questions he invited me for a one on one interview the following day. I went to the interview and he asked some basic situational questions, such as tell me about a time when you didn't like the policy at work, tell me about a time when you went above and beyond to help a customer, and tell me about a time when you did something good but didn't get recognized for it. After the interview was complete, I was offered a position on the spot.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Academy Sports & Outdoors in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Submitted an online application that was fairly long, got a call about 2 weeks later, asked me a few questions on the phone such as availability, then asked me to come in for an interview. Questions were pretty standard, easy to respond to and the manager was impressed with everything I said. At the end they asked if I had any questions, I asked when I could start and they went ahead and hired me and told me to come in the next day for paperwork. Usually there's two interviews on two separate days, sometimes even three.
