    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Paragon Sporting Goods in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Great Interview process. 1st you need to attend an open house that takes place in the store and when your turn comes you do a quick 1 on 1 with a hiring manager. If they like you and your experience they will tell you what position they have for you on the spot and after that you will be assigned with a manager of your department to go thru a second little screening. Boom! you got a job!

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Paragon Sporting Goods in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    It was an open house. I was second on line and they gave out applications and said we could sit on the the seats in the sneakers section. I came back to the line and not only could I not get my place in line back (second online) but people were online ahead of me who were still in the process of filling out their application. Maybe I shouldn't have but I mentioned that I wanted my place online back but said I was flexible and would not mind going to the end either. The manager looked at my application and resume and said he did not have anything for me now. I asked if there is a way I could keep in touch with him in the future and he said he does not keep resumes on file. I found this very insulting.

    Interview Questions
    • Looked at my resume and then in less than a minute said he was not interested. I think he may have already enough people and did not want to tell everybody on line that.   Answer Question
