    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Academy Sports & Outdoors in March 2017.

    Interview

    After applying, I got a call asking me if I had the time to answer a few questions. It was a very informal phone interview just confirming my availability and other simple stuff, and they asked if I wanted to come in to interview at the store. Went to the store to interview, manager was pleasant to talk to and very nice. Asked me to tell a little about myself, and why I wanted to work at Academy. Then asked me a LOT of situational questions from a packet they have to use. They were basic questions like, "Tell me about a time where you had to work in a team environment." At the end she said she was really impressed with my answers and hired me on the spot.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Academy Sports & Outdoors (Auburn, AL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Took about 2 weeks. I got a breif call asking about availability and experience, and set up an interview for two days later. Went in to first interview and was asked just a couple 'describe a time when...' questions. Set up a second interview with another manager and was asked a couple more 'describe a time when...' questions. Easy, enjoyable, not stressful, and everyone was super nice. I have terrible interview anxiety and this was the best i have ever done, the managers were super nice and so was the other staff.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Academy Sports & Outdoors (Mesquite, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly simple. The interviewer had a packet of questions and they were all "explain a situation where..". At the beginning of the interview they ask you to tell them about yourself, and at the end, they ask if you have any questions. The interview was a one on one with the store manager and it wasn't stressful at all. She told me that she would call me back but haven't heard back since.

    Interview

    I applied online through Indeed. I got a call back about 2 weeks later for a phone interview. They invited me to interview in person. There were two separate interviews the same day. The questions were mainly behavioral and how you reacted in certain situations. Received an email the next day saying that they had chosen to move further with other candidates.

    Interview

    Standard interview questions. One interview. Offered the job on the spot and I accepted the position. The interview was in the back of the store with one of the managers. I don't think the interview matters too much. There were also a few other people who got hired the same time as myself.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Academy Sports & Outdoors (Sunset Valley, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    They are understaffed. I was hired , essentially, before my interview. There is a constant turnover in most departments in the store and the are ALWAYS hiring new people. Easy interview. They only care that you are willing to work and can talk and walk at the same time.
