Application

I applied online – interviewed at adidas Group in September 2014.

Interview

I applied for Adidas back in early July and received an email for a group interview in August. Two weeks later, I get to the interview to see about thirty to forty other people there. It wasn't a group interview. They put us on the floor individually with a worker who pretended to be a customer. If we scored good with the worker, we got the job. Luckily, I scored very well and got the job. The General manager is very nice and playful and the whole environment is relaxing.

Interview Questions

Negotiation

There was no negotiations regarding pay. He told us we would start with $8.50 which is fine with me.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at adidas Group (Camarillo, CA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    I was sent an email a week after applying. They told me to bring my social security and ID with me implying that they were going to hire people on the spot. It was a group interview with 6 other people. There were 2 interviewers that arrived late, and clearly had no clue what they were doing. They blankly looked at each other and asked what they should ask us. It was extremely un-professional and disappointing to sit there and listen to them. After being puzzled for 5 minutes and staring at us they walked to the front to go find a question are to ask us. After that they only asked two questions. "do you have any retail experience" and "can you work a cash register"? That was literally the end of the interview. There was a lady with 13 years retail experience that they denied, as well as an AT&T sales Associate. They actually chose the most inexperienced workers. It was a mess, and disappointing to say the least. They said that you start with a minimum number of hours and work your way up based on your performance. After the two questions, they chose 4 out of the 7 people and hired them on the spot, asking me and two others to leave. Apparently the answers did not really matter to them. I studied hard on the questions that i would answer, especially about sports but they were never answered. I most likely would have declined the offer due to the interview even if they did say yes! They hired employees that were clearly uneducated in sports.

    Interview Questions

    • I was ready to answer questions about sports and what i love about them, but they asked nothing of the sort and were completely un-prepared only asking 2 basic questions about retail.   Answer Question

    Interview

    two interviews, both are sports-based conversations, both can be group interviews. Was made to wait 20 - 30 minutes past the scheduled interview time both times.

    Keep in mind, many young people apply for these kinds of jobs so the interview process is set up to accommodate the mentality of teenagers and young adults.

    Interview Questions

    • none, as long as you know about current sports topics and how to behave responsively and efficiently at work (good work ethics) then you're all set.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    there wasn't a negotiation able to be made because the hourly rate wasn't told to me until after training already began.
