    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Clearwater, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Clearwater, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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

    I submitted an online application, which was quite lengthy. I'm assuming I didn't pass the online personality test because I wasn't called for an interview.

    First part of the process was to pass a very general test that you must take on line when submitting your application. After passing the store manager will contact you for an interview. Very general and easy interview, most employees at the store including the store manager are very nice and helpful. Will have to complete a second interview with either another store manager or district manager which will follow some of the same questions.

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Finish Line in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had applied online and about a month later they had called me for a phone screening. They asked about my basic knowledge of shoes and stuff. Then about a hour later they called back setting up an appointment. I go in for my appointment. It didn't even last 10 minutes. Asked basic questions. Then they said the main manager would call me back in a couple of days. I haven't heard back from them yet. Wondering if I should call them.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing difficult about it at all. Only thing I wonder about is that they told me they were very interested in me but I haven't heard back from them.   Answer Question

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, KS
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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.
