    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Nashua, NH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashua, NH
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Sports Authority in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, received a call a few days later. Interview was set up with the Sales Mgr then with the Supervisor of cashiers. Sales Mgr was all excited about my experience, pretty much told me I had the job (cashier, with the money I wanted) then went to get the Supervisor to interview me and she was too busy. Was told that she would contact me in a day or so and have heard nothing. Figured what I wanted for money was more than the Supervisor wanted to pay for a cashier. Not happy about the whole experience since the Supervisor was the person who set the interview up.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Sports Authority.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a call by the end of the week asking me on an interview the following Friday in the morning. I asked if I needed a copy of my resume and they said no. I prepare for the week by checking this website alongside Forbes and about.com. I wasn't informed that it would be a group interview until I arrived. There was about 15 of us. We interviewed with the sales and casher managers. They asked each of us to tell them about ourselves, and the rest of the questions were answer if you want to. Out of the 15, only four weren't hired. They weren't outspoken or dressed well. They told us on the spot for the rest of us that we were hired and that some of us could become permanent, if we performed well.

    Interview Questions
    • None were questions that were unexpected. They asked us "What is retail", "What would you do if you had a lot of customers all at once", and "What other department would you feel comfortable working in"   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Sports Authority in March 2009.

    Took less than 1 week after I applied to get a call from HR. The interview process consisted of a phone interview followed by a site visit 2 days later. The site visit was with my future supervisor for about 45 minutes and with a team member for about 20 minutes. I then received an offer a few days later.

    Interview Questions
    • None, it was your standard entry level position interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate my salary which was a mistake. Make sure you negotiate as they try to low ball you with their first offer.
