    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.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods.

    Interview

    The interview was the usual. Went through two interviews and they both were pretty similar. They basically asked about customer service and when did i experience difficult customers. One of the managers that interviewed me was not as professional because of the way he exhibited his body posture. His feet were up on his desk while he was listening to me talk.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods (Queensbury, NY).

    Interview

    Unprofessional and was like a normal conversation between two people. Questions were easy to answer but had nothing to do with the job I was applying for. I ended up working in the Freight Flow and Operations Department. I wish I could have met my supervisor before I took the job. Was not what I had expected. Violent and enjoyed bullying employees.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods (Nampa, ID) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Got to my interview 10minutes early and was told it'd be 15-20minutes until the manager was ready for me. She came and got me and we walked to the back of store talking about how my weekend was. We got to the back "employee's only" section and she began asking me about my past work expierience, why I wanted to work for Them, and if I played/knew anything about sports. It was a very comfortable atnosphere, and my interviewer was so sweet! The interview lasted about 10/15 minutes. When I had answered her questions she had me take an "honesty test" which was just 55 questions about if marijuana and alcohol were ever acceptable at work. It was a quick little test. By the end of the interview she said she'd call me the next day at 1:45pm. When the next day came around, I ended up not getting a call, so I called at 8pm, and asked for the interviwer. She had apoligized for not calling me sooner, since the store was slammed that day. But she offered me the position and we scheduled a time and day for orientation. It was a positive and fun expierience!
