Lodge Sales Associate Interview

Lodge Sales Associate

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods in June 2014.

Interview Details – Hiring process was extremely drawn out. I had to make phone calls to the corporate headquarters and my local store's HR department multiple times to get my application checked in the first place. Also the company career website is updated infrequently which led me to apply for a position that was no longer available.

Interview Question – What does this job mean for you?   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Cashier Interview

Cashier

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods.

Interview Details – It's pretty simple you apply online, have two interviews, and starry working. You have the first interview with the first person and it's about yourself, random questions, etc. the second interview they tell you about your pay which by the way you can somewhat negotiate, they ask you sports questions like what's your favorite and why, and then they let you know of your hired.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work here?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Just make it reasonable I honestly regret no going slightly higher because I could've done better but I was too scared to negotiate!

Very Difficult Interview

Cashier/Customer Service Interview

Cashier/Customer Service
Dulles, VA

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods in October 2013.

Interview Details – Had a bad experience. Took me 3 years just to get an interview. I won't work here if they paid me large sums of money. The recruiter was rude, the interview place was in a storage room, wasn't very professional. Was asked questions and most of them didn't make sense. They rejected most of my applications, by the 50th one, they finally extended an interview.

Interview Details – If you can form logical sentences and talk to people - you're good to go.
Actually, even if you can't meet either of those conditions... you're probably good to go.
Applied online, in person interview, I think they offered me the job later that day... holiday season, they really needed people.

Pricing and Signage Coordinator Interview

Pricing and Signage Coordinator
Rockwall, TX

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods in March 2013.

Interview Details – hiring process was thorough, went to two interviews, both were stacked with generic: "describe a time when you overcame...", but my interviewer was particularly intense. Overall, went smoothly, and nothing out of the ordinary was asked.

Interview Question – Being asked to come in on days off. The position required that i be present atleast 5 days a week, but for only 4-5 hour shifts, but then call me in my two days off.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Wasn't able to negotiate hiring pay, i would advise looking up generic interview questions prior to interview for a few prepared answers.
