I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Finish Line in October 2013.

Interview Details – my store manger is so chill and relaxed, just asked questions about old job and what i did. Was very easy because I knew i was good at what i did. Kept it honest and left no open ended questions

Interview Question – really didnt have any difficult questions. Maybe how can your skills translate to this company, but even that wasn't to difficult just be honest and know your skills and weaknesses but dont mention them lol   Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Finish Line.

Interview Details – Very casual, informal.

Interview Question – There weren't really any. Your standard "why are you applying, why Finishline, strengths/weaknesses". Just use your standard answers, it doesn't matter. If you can talk about basketball you're in.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. I was told $8.50, bottom line. I can't believe sales kids get $5 an hour. Ridiculous.

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Finish Line in May 2011.

Interview Details – I had my first interview with the store manager. Cool guy, seemed very interest in hiring me. Just wanted to know about my goals. I had a second interview with the district manager. Arrogant fella. Kept yawning during my interview. Being a straight jerk. Kind of made me not want the job. Both interviews took place in the food court. Seemed like a fun place to work.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Finish Line in August 2011.

Interview Details – I submitted an application online and got a call for the interview a few days later. I met the store manager at the store in the mall and we went to a secluded part of the mall where we could sit and start the interview. It was basic questions about my experiences and my future goals. Overall it was a very good interview and very comfortable.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you had students or employees that did not want to listen or be apart of what the team was doing. How were you able get them involved and coach them?   Answer Question

Average Interview

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Finish Line in August 2010.

Interview Details – After I applied online, a manager from Finish Line called me to set up my first interview. It was just a routine interview (basic questions). Then he told me that if they were interested they would set up a second interview. Was called up two days later for the second interview. After about a week they called, offered me a position, and made me take a drug test.
The interviews were about 30 minutes long, and were about as basic questions as you can get. Don't be nervous, just research interview questions online.

Interview Question – What is your biggest strength/weakness?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation at all. There are 8 stores in about a 50 mile radius, and whatever store they offer, you have to take. And be prepared that they shuffle around their Assistant Managers and MIT's about every 2-3 months.
