Interview Details

Saw an ad online and applied. Within the week, got a call and set up an interview. Interview pretty basic, didn't ask anything too difficult, or anything at all really besides: "Do you have any questions for me?" Was told I'd hear from them. Got an offer a few days later.

    I applied being a college student in need of a job during the Fall semester. I got a call about a month later asking about an interview. I wore a dress shirt and tie. I asked alot of questions which made me seem interested. Laid back interview process.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Sports Authority in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Simple & easy. Common sense: This is a sports retail store. I walked in not really knowing anything but the basics of sports...it took a weeks adjustment and I learned almost everything I needed to know about sports and equipment. Selling ECPs will even better your paycheck and good standings.

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Sports Authority in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, called back a couple days later. Was hired with about 10 people at the time. Manager brings you to his office, asks you a couple basic questions and hired on the spot.

    Couple days later you come in for some training and you're working a couple days later.

    Everyone seems friendly and they get right to the point of what they want including dos and donts.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Sports Authority in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied the first time in person and called about a week and a half later. The manager told me to re-apply on their online website because my application some how got lost. I re-applied online and was called back for an interview. I met with the store manager and he gave me a fairly quick and easy interview. He asked if I had prior retail experience and how free my schedule was for shifts.

    There was no negotiation since I hadn't had any retail experience before. I was offered minimum wage and I accepted.
