    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods (Madison, WI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    2 day process. First interview fielded most questions, many of which were team and sports based. Questions were relatively easy and straightforward. Offered position at end of second interview. Met with two different managers. Store manager usually performs second interview and decides if they wish to hire, but he was unavailable. Needless to say it wasn't very difficult to get the job, and I don't think it would have mattered for him to even be there.
