    Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sports Authority.

    Interview

    Contacted by phone. They asked a few personal questions over the phone. Went on to schedule an in person interview at the store. Everyone seemed very welcoming. Management is very flexible with what times you can meet them. The interview consisted of simple questions. What are your strengths and weaknesses? What sports are you most familiar with? What area in store would you feel most comfortable in? When I started, they tried me in every area and placed me where I was most successful and comfortable.

    Technical Service Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sports Authority (Littleton, CO).

    Interview

    I dressed up in a suit and tie, and prepared for an interview like normal. I was sent to the restroom/office area to meet an associate. I don't know what his job title was but he was dressed in shorts, and a black t-shirt. We sat down in rolling chairs, in some sort of utility room. He goes straight into explaining that they are hiring for the SNIAGRAB event. A wonderful, two week long winter clearance event!!! Exactly the opposite of what I wanted. He hadn't even looked at my application until I told him that I applied for the Tech position. He looked at my app, and confirmed that was the case. That's when we talked about my qualifications, which I had. But "the position had been filled." I said "Thanks," and he walked me out. It's basically an interview where as long as you show up, you're hired... Be prepared for the Bait and Switch.
