    Warehouse Lead Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Sports Authority.

    Interview Details

    The interviews were an enjoyable experience. The company is very good about being friendly to anyone looking to work there. For the Warehouse Lead position, two interviews were had: one with the store manager and one with the district manager. An offer was made in a timely manner. They asked good questions and were responsive to question I had for them and the company in general.

    Interview Questions
    • "Name one time where you exceeded your expectations in a previous job and were recognized accordingly."

      There's no difference between exceeding and doing in my mind, and also, if the second part of the question never happened, I'd feel the need to lie about it.
