    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Foot Locker in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and followed up with a call the following day. Was told all applications go to HQ and if your application passes evaluation it will be forwarded to the store, which takes a minimum of two weeks. Two weeks later I received a call where a phone interview was done, and told I will receive a follow up call. 5 minutes later, they called to set up an interview for a few days later. When I showed up to the store, I was redirected to go to to Foot Action which is located in the malls food court. Turns out, it was a group interview with about 8 people. There were 3 managers for Foot Action & 2 for Foot Locker. Went around the table answering questions and I always made sure to answer first. Managers asked for us to hang around a few minutes while they spoke. Couple minutes later, a lady from Foot Action came over and started shaking hands with certain people that they had already disqualified and sent them on their way. A manager from Foot Locker came over and asked me to go to the side for a one-on-one interview where I talked with him and the other lady there from FL. Asked me some more in depth questions and was told to answer them as honest as I possibly could. I used experiences from my previous job to answer all questions. Was then told I will receive a call. About 30 minutes later, I was called to come by either that day or the next to sign a consent form for a background check and about 2 days later I received a call offering me the position! =)

    I applied through other source - interviewed at Foot Locker.

    Interview Details

    The interview has changed since I moved up to a full time posistion. Now you have to do an application online along with an assesment. After the application is sent to the store the manager should review and do a phone interview. If the manager still wants to meet with the canidate they may set up an interview. Then if the interview goes well you may be asked to interview with another manager, DM, or even an ASM.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Foot Locker in July 2014.

    Was a bit confusing at first as HR rep telephoned after my initial online application inquiring on my salary requirements and did not ask any further questions. Roughly 3 weeks later was contacted by the HR rep for telephone interview which led to face to face with HR rep along with hiring executive.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Foot Locker in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    To get a job depending on which you go to they may prefer someone with experience which means less training. You will have to go on two interviews one with an Assistant Manager and one with the Store Manager. They ask the basic questions like strengths, weaknesses, why should they hire you and what is customer service. They might also ask you to sell them a random product as a test.

    Interview Questions
    • There was really no unexpected question. The only one that was different was for me to sell them a product, but it was pretty easy if you have a persuasive personality.   Answer Question
