    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Academy Sports & Outdoors (Orange Park, FL) in August 2014.

    Interview

    You sit near the office to which you will interview in for about 10-15 minutes since the hiring manager has to get ready or finish up any of there tasks that they can not leave undone. Like any interview the manager will walk up to you and introduce themselves with a hand shake. You will sit in their office and the interview does not last long depending on if you talk more about the interview. All questions asked are situational, about what you have accomplished, and your skills and abilities.

    I was called and recieved an interview the next day. It was a fairly formal interview with more traditional interview questions, however, they did also ask behavioral interview questions. I was called back for a second interview with a senior manager and this was more formal and behavioral oriented. They wanted to know what you have done in the past and how you've reacted to situations in the past. Overall it was average.

I was asked about my related experience and also was asked several "What would you do in this situation" type questions. It was the first day of interviews for the new store, so I did not expect to receive an offer on the spot. She told me to expect to hear from her within two weeks.

    Wasn't much of a negotiation. Though I was hired at a low rate since I had no retail experience. Found out others hired after me, with no retail experience, got hired at a higher hourly wage.
