I interviewed at Academy Sports + Outdoors

Interview

They kept talking about being a family and said that they didn’t want anyone to come in and disrupt their family. I had managerial training but did not want a management position. I told them twice that I just wanted an entry level job and not management. They told me they weren’t interested because they anticipated me wanting to be promoted quickly.

I applied online. I interviewed at Academy Sports + Outdoors

Interview

Very long interview process. Met with different teams in different group. Some managers seemed tired and uninterested in being involved in the interview process. Very repetitive questions as the interviews were rotating and one-on-one. Intended to be a role to be included in new HRBP structure.

A recruiter called and asked about my experience superficially. Then asked my salary expectation. That was it. A 2 minute phone call. I did not hear back for months that I would not move on to the next interview.

I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Academy Sports + Outdoors (Katy, TX) in Feb 2022

Interview

Contacted by recruiter. Had a phone screen and then had two phone interviews with hiring managers. Eventually led to more phone interviews with leadership. Led to onsite interview with 5 people where I was told it would be the final step. Then had another follow-up interview with the CIO and then two more phone screens with other departments. The entire process lasted 3 months and ended up with Academy completely ghosting me.

Interview Questions
  • Lots of technical questions around infrastructure and disaster recovery.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Academy Sports + Outdoors (Katy, TX)

Interview

There was one phone screen and three interviews with managers & another designer. The phone screen was rapid and straightforward. The 1st interview with the product manager went well. I walked through their company website to find potential UX improvements and answered the questions about the experience of establishing a style guide. The 2nd interview was with a designer, and the interview process was almost the same as the 1st round. I thought it went well, too. However, the recruiter told me they decided to move forward with another candidate in the 3rd round. The designer gave the feedback, and he commented that I lack user research experience. During the interview, the designer didn't review my works to learn the breadth and depth of my UX/UI design knowledge and problem-solving approaches. He only asked questions about user research and questions to test my personality. I would be curious to understand how he concluded. If this is a user research role, please hire a user researcher instead of a senior UX/UI designer. Besides the awkward interview experience, the recruiter was still impressed that he quickly moved things forward and kept things transparent.
