Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Sports Authority in February 2012.

Interview Details – Honestly just sound somewhat competent and called back a few times to make yourself sound very interested. I can't give too much advice due to the fact that the sales manager that gave me my interview just bragged about how great he was at being a salesman. They didn't seem to have the highest standards when hiring. Just show up and seem pretty well put together and able to hold a conversation and you should be fine.

Interview Question – No difficult questions. Pretty self explanatory.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations, they offered $8 an hour and you could take it or leave it.
