undefined

We believe passionately in the importance of living healthy active lives, and in our stores we try to impart that passion by providing products and experience, making it easy for our customers to pursue their own passions for activity - whatever form that may take.

Through education and sharing our passion for sports and activity, we believe we can make a positive impact on our employees, customers and the wider community. We recognize that not all Canadians have access to the resources required to live healthy, active lives. The Power of Sport For Kids exists to provide opportunities for sports, play and physical activity to children who may not otherwise be able to participate.

Success for FGL Sports is defined in terms of specific business goals and ultimately the fulfillment of our mission, but more importantly by the way in which we achieve our objectives. The FGL Sports Leadership Brand sets a standard for the organization and all employees:

FGL Sports Leadership Brand

  • Believe and expect that everybody in the organization can be a leader
  • Always do what you say you are going to do
  • Lead by example - because if you don't, nobody else will
  • Grow leaders (see point 1) and enable others to contribute and excel
  • Think FGL Sports first - the whole is greater than the sum of the parts
  • Serve others - make employees a priority so they will make our customers a priority
  • Recognize a job well done
  • Build an organization you are proud to work for

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sport Chek (Timmins, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    I had been asked to hand in a resume while working at another retail store. I was given an interview two days after and asked to bring in my reference information. The interview was with the store manager and soft goods manager. They asked me questions about my work ethic, experience and ambitions. They were kind, straight forward and made the intentions and expectations of the job clear. They explained the type of work environment I would be joining, the type of hours I would be working and the pay I would start at until my probation was over. Overall the managers were friendly, personable and made the process relaxing while still asking appropriate questions.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me if I was comfortable having to change everything in a department by not only moving around product but moving fixtures and changing wall plans when necessary.   1 Answer
