    I was brought into the corporate headquarters for an in-person interview after a phone interview, and spoke with members of three different departments who I would interface with. After discussing the basics of the positions and my experience, we took a tour of the corporate campus. The tour included walking through various conference rooms that I would be responsible for supporting, as well as some of the amenities that I would have access to as an employee (such as gym access, and the on-campus cafeteria, coffee shop, and bank).

    Interview

    Well I walked into the store and ask for the person I was to meet with... Up till that time I was a nervous wreck. I was directed to the back of the office where I met Annie. She was polite and cordial to me and she asked me some questions about myself; she also told me to take an ethics test. I did and I passed. So long story short I got hired and I'm still hired.

    Senior Space Planner Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods (Pittsburgh, PA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Was contacted regarding a Senior Space Planner role I applied for. Had a standard getting to know you call with HR. Followed up with a phone interview with the hiring manager which last 5 minutes with no questions asked about my qualifications - entire discussion was about her cousin and that she happened to go to the same college I graduated from. Surprisingly, I was flown out for an interview (all the logistics of this were well-handled) costing me a few days of work. Half hour interview each with HR and 2 hiring managers of two different departments. Upon arriving, was wondering if I was interested in other jobs at the company other than the one I applied for. None of the interviewers had read my resume beforehand and asked random questions about jobs I held 15 years ago. I had heard really good things about this company but I would not have accepted even if offered. Corporate campus is beautiful and feels like a health-club/resort. However, I would just make sure that you know that the job you are interviewing for is the same one you applied for and that you do a better job of setting expectations, especially if you are traveling.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods in June 2015.

    Interview

    The process was the worst I have experienced job hunting. I applied in March and just heard back from this place. Those interviewing had no idea what job I applied for. I had and still have no idea either as the job I originally applied for was filled back in March. All behavioral questions and questions about sports as its a sporting goods store.
