    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Finish Line in March 2014.

    Interview

    When I was interviewed for Finish Line, it was a very comfortable interview. I was interviewed by two managers at once in the food court area. I did not feel nervous instead I felt very confident. My manager had tattoos and it was expressed to me that Finish Line was not a place that judges by appearances as far as tattoos and piercing but rather on job performance and how well you can represent their company in the correct manner.

    Interview

    I applied for the Stock Associate for Finish Line, Garden City, position on January 14, 2014. Online process filled out the application, experiences and took a personaility test I believe if I'm remembering correctly. Receieved a phone call from the manager on February 20, 2014 to schedule an interview for February 21. Interview went very well. About 15 or 20 minutes long. Asked basic interview questions and gave me information about the job and what it calls for and if im sure I could get the job done and why. Then on Feb 24th a short phone interview with the Stock lead On February 24th got a call from the manager informing me I will be receiving an email soon that will provide the questions needed to complete the hiring process. Soon I'll start training :) I can't wait!

    Interview

    Very easy, not a thing to worry about. Basically filled out the online application, and received a phone in literally two days. I was then scheduled an interview within the next week. Did it right in the middle of the mall, with the manager of the store, and the manager on duty.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Finish Line in January 2014.

    Interview

    The initial process is done online and remains true for the majority of retail chain sneaker stores as they usually do not accept in person solicitations and will only redirect you online, with the exception of a few I wont name. It is important to pass the online personality test to receive a call back, it's easy stuff if you answer according to what type of employee the company is looking for. Take little to no consideration of your actual personality and get your foot in the door, Assuming you actually like sales. As far as the interview goes expect the standard questions, availability and a few sales related others. Also don't forget the silly yet most important " Can you sell me this pen?" "Tell me about yourself" Why Finish Line" Past employer and friends opinion on yourself. ex. if I was to ask one of your family members about you what is the first thing they would say. etc. "Favorite and least favorite parts of most recent job" "Job debrief" followed by "Do you have any further questions"

    Interview Questions

    • There was a couple of questions I was not prepared for and were introduced as silly questions used to understand the potential employee on a more personal level. They were as follows: "What is your favorite animal and why" If I were to look in the trunk of your car right now what would I find" ended by "Can you sell me this pen?"   1 Answer
