    Store Manager In Training Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sports Authority (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied Online, received personal call from DM inviting me in for interview. Apparently it was a job interview for many in a location. I first got called in by a SM (thought he was a DM, never really introduced himself or his title) DM came in behind him and they went back and forth. Very laid back, no clue what position I applied for, first clue is when he asked me what I was looking for in pay per hour, I said I'm hear for a management position, it's salaried, apparently my request of just 5K more than what I'm currently making as an Assistant thru them off. Interview was friendly and light and easy, they were very pleasant and super friendly, but figured it was a done deal when he said we'll make a decision next week, don't take it personally if you don't hear from us, it's not that we don't like you?

    Interview Questions

    • Am I a merchandising manager/or a sales manager? When I said sales, they came back, sales thru merchandising, or customer service? Would I travel to a store that was 60 miles away? When I said that was a bit far, he picked a store that was 55 miles away? The store listing for the posting was closest to my home, which is why I applied, though I said I was willing to go to any store with my county or within 25 miles.   Answer Question
