    Interview

    Did not immediately say if I can continue with hiring process. Very misleading. Needed to be more clear on what hours they want you to work. Instead of asking what hours I want to work, tell me what hours are you wanting me to work.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Academy Sports & Outdoors (Dallas, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    It was your basic retail interview. Simple questions and easy-going. The manager that did mine actually did it in the store walking around. It was conversational. It really is simple standard questions from a sheet though. They let yyou know at the end of the interview if you got the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I had an over the phone interview. Basically asking why I wanted to work for academy and why I thought I'd be a good fit for the job. After answering a few other questions, I was asked to come in for a one on one interview with the department manager. After the face to face interview I waited about 1 week to find out I had the job. Although I've witnessed job offers on the spot. It just depends on how badly they need new employees.

    Interview

    Went into the interview thinking it would be somewhat of a challenge. It wasn't. The manager seemed disinterested and didn't talk about the company much. He was very negative about most things including life work balance. He didn't seem to like working for the company much.
