Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Big 5 Sporting Goods (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2017.

Interview

I applied and the next day, I got a call from the manager wanting to set up an appointment for the day after. Brief, not a lot of questions asked. Seemed like a lot of people quit and they were desperate for anyone. Few questions asked- mostly about availability, outdoor activities. Nothing major.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Big 5 Sporting Goods (Portland, OR) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty relaxed and casual (within reason). They made it as painless as possible to interview and apply. The issues are mostly from their online applications (it can be buggy) and the amount of paperwork they need for a background check.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Big 5 Sporting Goods (Bakersfield, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was a more 'get to know you' approach. The questions were mostly about myself and what I did prior to working there. I was hired on the spot and not asked any hard thought out questions. The interview seemed like just a screening to make sure I was a decent person who was able to work with people and hold a professional manner. There was not much to the interview but questions for the hiring manager to get to know me and my schedule.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Manager was open to working with my schedule as a student.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Big 5 Sporting Goods in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call about two weeks later to come in for an interview. Very friendly manager. Asked about my work experience, sports experience and if I'd be able to handle the job. Knew I didn't get the job when he mentioned they were still interviewing other candidates. Nice guy, though.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Big 5 Sporting Goods (East Los Angeles, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    They only asked a few basic questions. It was pretty simple, but you still need to prepare for it ahead of time. Review questions from the internet and dress nicely for the interview. They will also not hire you if you have a weird haircut or hair color.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Big 5 Sporting Goods (Chino, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Big 5 allows for walk-in inquiries for employment. Typically they have signs in front that boldly says "Now Hiring." I came in the evening when the general manager at the time was there and he was very friendly and asked about my background. Within the week I was interviewed by another manager and head cashier. They asked questions in regard to my background and experience with sales. I received a phone call by the end of the week offering employment. The interview was a bit intimidating but overall satisfactory of the company's mission and expectations. There's a lot of paperwork to fill out but typical for a franchise business.

    Interview Questions

    • Knowledge of what I would sell along side certain sports merchandise. For example, an entire list of what I would sell to someone buying baseball gloves.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't get the opportunity to negotiate but it was a part-time gig and minimum wage is the norm.
