    Team Lead - Hardlines Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Academy Sports + Outdoors in July 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online and did a HireVue virtual Q&A immediately following the application. The sales floor manager who oversees the position called and had a brief (~15 minute) phone conversation about previous experience and offered for a sit down interview later in the week. Had an in person interview with the sales floor manager and recommended I interview with the Store Director which took place 2 days later. Both in person interviews were relatively informal

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Academy Sports + Outdoors in May 2020.

    Interview

    Simple interview with HR then more in-depth with hiring manager. Felt the interview went well with hiring manager but then was told I wouldn’t move to the last round because they wanted someone with more experience. I thought this was odd and that they wasted my time. But everyone was nice.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Academy Sports + Outdoors.

    Interview

    Interview was fairly simple. Apply online, make sure your resume is good, and wait for them to call. Got a over the phone interview and I guess they wanted to make sure I was a decent person. I say that, because the manager discussed my hourly rate and when I could come in. My hiring date came Right before the holiday season.
