    Walk in the building and have to find an employee who works in the building in order to find the manager. Manager is sometimes helping at the registers or helping customers. Once the manager head towards your direction, he then greets you and smiles (shakes hand). You walk with the manager towards the "do not enter, employees only" door and head towards the office where the computers and walkee's are located. He tells you to please sit down and you do so. The manager then asks questions and writes them down while listening. This may take 10-15 minutes.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7+ monthsinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a phone call for an interview 7 months after. Went to the interview and had a hard time finding someone who could direct me to the hiring manager. Was told to wait in the employee break room and then the store manager came and got me after 10 minutes. The store manager was very laidback and brief. Explained the job and then conducted a brief interview of about 10 questions. He then asked me to do an opinion survey which was about 55 questions. After I did the survey, I was offered the job.
