    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Bloomington, MN
    Anonymous Employee in Bloomington, MN
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Golf Galaxy in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Called and scheduled an interview about a week after applying online. Met at the retail location with the General Store Manager. Asked questions about my previous experience, responsibilities, store volume, and employees I managed. The interviewer was professional but didn't seem to have all of my background correct even though he was looking at my resume. Be sure to stress a golf passion and ability to delegate.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    There was only the one interview, but I was an internal promotion so there might be more for outsiders. The interview itself was an hour long and was with the district manager and the general manager of the store. They asked any number of questions about how I would improve the store and how I would change knowing that I would be transitioning from Player's Assistant to Sales Manager

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate because I was young and stupid, but I think I could have earned another 10% or so by fighting a little harder.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Golf Galaxy in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a call asking to set up an interview in person. When I entered the store for the interview, I was greeted by generous employees. A manager named Troy interviewed me, and he was also respectful. We even talked about the Master's golf tournament. From what I remember, he asked four questions. Why Golf Galaxy? What is your current job? What is your previous work history? What is your availability? After that, there was a personality/skills test. It was about what you would do in hypothetical situations. I have no idea how I scored on the test. Within one week, I was offered the position.

    I never negotiated, but I should have done that. If you have previous retail experience, then you should negotiate.
