    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Academy Sports & Outdoors (Rosenberg, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Everyone was friendly--minus the store director, he came off as a little informal. Straight-forward questions, no trick questions. The questionnaire you do in the application affects how many questions you'll be asked at the interview if they call you back.

    Interview Questions

    • Situational things, like how you would deal with an upset customer and times you've worked with a team (whether in school or at another job).   Answer Question

    Interview

    Interview was pretty easy, quick process. But the training was a complete waste of time because it covered technical information that was completely useless to the actual job. And the video they used was outdated and unrealistic.

    Interview only took about 20-25 Minutes, they asked you basic behavior questions and "Tell me a time when you..." Type of questions. They asked about my salary desire and my availability, 2 people interviewed me & I was hired on the spot, I originally applied for the Footwear Sales Associate position but they said they wanted to start me off as a cashier and I can move up into a department which was fine with me! I was open with my salary desire, I told them 7.25 and they offered 8.50! I was like "WOW, okay yes(:! Can't wait to start!

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

    Interview

    I had to wait for about 15 minutes for the hiring manager but overall the interview was good. It took place in the break room so we were interrupted a time or two but everyone was very cooperative and understanding. The hiring manager was nice and described all the duties the position required.

    There were 2 interviews, at the second interview they hired me on the spot. Both interviews were extremely easy. During the second interview, they asked me the exact same questions.

    Negotiation

    I felt like I shorted myself (or they might have liked me) as I said "I'm expecting between $8.00 & $9.00 an hour." They countered by saying "$9.00 it is then."
