    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Webster, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Webster, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Academy Sports & Outdoors in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    During the interview a manager will read over your application and discuss thoroughly each question you answered then as questions of their own. If you answer a question in a way they don't like, they will discuss what they would rather you do. It depends on what manager is doing your interview too. Some of the managers are scary, so you want to be overly polite!

    Interview Questions
    • If you witnessed you're coworker doing something wrong, or something you didn't approve of, would you tell a manager as soon as possible or try to take matters into your own hands first?   View Answer

    interviewed at Academy Sports & Outdoors in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview was standard and the hiring staff was amazing. I would prep by reading the company history and also having all interview questions well memorized. This will be the key to landing the job and starting as soon as possible. They will work with anyone who is willing to work and give 100%.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Academy Sports & Outdoors.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone call asking me when I will be available for a phone interview. After the phone interview I was told if they are willing to hire me I will get another call back. I received a call back two days later. I then had a one on one interview which I was asked a series of questions. They were fairly easy if you have experienced working before. (I knew someone that had a phone interview, but never received a call back, so be sure you're honest and know what you're talking about. I think it might have been because she did not have past working experience but I'm not sure).

    Interview Questions
    • "Describe a time you disobeyed a rule?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Try not to negotiate. These managers (at least mine) did not seem to care if you were pleased. All that mattered is if the store is still running. (If your hours sucked. Try to switch with someone or oh well.)
