Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods.

Interview

they need "bodies"- mass hires are the norm- (send them through mentality) You get called to come take an interview in a conference room with several other candidates talking to multiple "managers" and wait your turn... unless it is for a specific store location already; then you come in and go through the same multiple page questionnaire as fast as the manager can get through it and then go to a computer to answer 80+ questions dealing with mostly personality/humanity questions that will determine the type of person you are and if you are not ultimately forgiving, nieve, or willing to anything to make someone happy you will fail.

Interview Questions

  • none- unless you believe picking a certain side of the spectrum is difficult. mostly "how would you handle/react to this situation scenario" questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation

Basically a one step negotiation where, if you do not accept the initial offer there is only one offer left and thats it or you don't get hired.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods (Novi, MI) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Very disorganized. I came in on one occasion and the manager that was supposed to interview me was not there. I had to call multiple times to make sure I was interviewing. After the interview, I was not even sure I had the job. I had to call to see when I was going to be trained. Overall, not a good process.
