    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at DICK'S Sporting Goods.

    Interview

    I first met with a DSG recruiter at a school career fair. Then they had engineers visit campus for two 30-45 min in person interviews in a row. They were very friendly and it was overall a good experience.

    Footwear Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at DICK'S Sporting Goods (Milwaukee, WI) in July 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call the next day to set up my first interview (there were two one on one interviews, one with dept manager and one with operations lead). First interview was easy, basically asking why dsg, what sport are you passionate about, how do you show that passion, etc. I got a call on my way home from the first interview to set up my second interview, which were much more typical interview questions. I was offered the position and got an email a few days later to accept my offer. Both interviews were very relaxed and the interviewers were very friendly.

    2 interviews regardless of what you’re applying for. Both ask basically the same questions. It’s a requirement for them to conduct 2 interviews. Managers are laid back during the interview process.

    Interview

    I was hired on the spot after a very short, casual interview. It was just in a backroom. They asked about times I was a leader, etc. It was just one of the assistant managers. The store manager wasn't​ even there.

    After applying online, I received a call from the office administrator to set a time for an interview. From there it was just a relaxed in-person interview with the store manager. It took about 30 mins and they let me know if I was offered a position or not.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at DICK'S Sporting Goods.

    Interview

    I applied on linkedin, and a recruiter from dsg's I had a connection with reached out to me about doing a phone screening. The screening consisted of questions about basic programming concepts and practices. For example, what is a REST API, steps in the TDD process, deploying apps, and who I would hypothetically write an algorithm. I passed the screening, and moved on to an online codility(?) challenge. It had two coding problems that I already had to solve on a previous test I got 6 months earlier, and a quiz about programming concepts. I got 92%, 100% on the coding which wasn't particularly hard, and 72% on the quiz. I moved on to the in person interview where I had an hr interview, an interview with the people in charge of software/it(?). They asked about my experience, with a focus on the dev ops aspects like deployment, and my current company. I think I might have been too negative while talking about my current co here. Finally an interview with some of the developers, including a pm, a dev II and a Principal. I got asked to code a short algorithm for traversing a node tree, and got stumped a few times in the process, but they were nice enough to throw out hints and answers questions. I believe there was one more whiteboard exercise after that, but I don't remember what it was. They definitely asked some of the same questions about deployments and dev ops here. It seemed like they were also looking for a lot of experience with Java script front end frame works like React and Angular.
