About Sport Chek
As the largest national retailer of sporting goods, footwear and apparel in Canada, we've got the tools to get people moving on the path to wellness. Our mission is to inspire every Canadian toward a fit, healthy and active lifestyle. Sport Chek believes that a healthy lifestyle can be adopted at any age, any level and within any activity. With this in mind, Sport Chek has joined forces with a number of grassroots and national sport organizations geared toward encouraging communities to be active. At our core, we are passionate about inspiring others to achieve their better. For more information about Sport Chek and our parent company, visit www.fglsports.com.
The FGL Sports mission is to help Canadians live healthy, active lives.
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:

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sport Chek in May 2012.Interview Details
Got a phone call from the head office to set up a phone interview time. After completion of the phone interview, they gave me a date and time to head to my local store to be interviewed. The phone interview was very basic from what I remember, asking about past work experience(s), what sort of sports I was interested in etc. The interview at the store was even more informal, I met the manager and we chatted for a bit, he hired me on the spot.Interview Questions
