    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at City Sports.

    Interview

    General questions on experience and how to interact with customers. The higher the position, the more detailed the questions get. Open availability during the week and weekends plays well. Mainly they want to know past experiences in interacting with customers of all difficulty levels. Product knowledge can easily be taught, but team players and great customer service is something else.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at City Sports.

    Interview

    Applied by filling out a paper application. Was called back for an interview that lasted about 40 minutes. If you have played any kind of sport and have decent availability you pretty much get the job. A lot of college aged people are the primary source of their sales staff.

    Negotiation

    Not much of a negotiation, they promise until they are blue in the face that there are advancement opportunities and evaluations to get you to accept a sub-$10 hourly pay rate.
