    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at City Sports.

    Interview

    General questions on experience and how to interact with customers. The higher the position, the more detailed the questions get. Open availability during the week and weekends plays well. Mainly they want to know past experiences in interacting with customers of all difficulty levels. Product knowledge can easily be taught, but team players and great customer service is something else.
