Very Easy Interview

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Kansas City, KS

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Finish Line in June 2012.

Interview Details – The interview part was one of the easiest and straightforward interviews I have ever been in! When I had got a call from the manage wanting an interview; which was not even a week after submitting my application, the manager was very nice. After I walked into the store, the managar and I walked to Panera Bread (the store was located in a outlet mall) the interview was pretty awesome. He didn't ask any random-like question. I was totally honest with all my answers and before you know, we are walking back to the store to get my name tag.

Interview Question – There was no difficult or unexpected questions.   Answer Question

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Clearwater, FL

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Finish Line in July 2013.

Interview Details – I was called about a day or two after applying. Had a few phone call conversations.... the "so tell me a bit about yourself"" line and were pretty basic.

I came in the next day for the real interview. It was extremely basic. He just went up and down my resume and had me talk about my experience.

Nothing too hard to worry about.

They pay on commission too. It's like $4 something an HR plus commision which is only 1% of shoe sales and higher for accessories. Seem's difficult to sell 4+ pairs of shoes an HR, especially on a slow day.

Interview Question – What would you do if you couldn't find someone's shoe size in a particular shoe? A: Get them another pair that is in their size.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Low pay,
