    They asked how my experience in sports would help me with this job and asked the usual "what would you do in this scenario" questions. The screening process is not long, which allows bad candidates to slip through on occasion.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DICK'S Sporting Goods (Wauwatosa, WI).

    Interview

    Showed up on time for my interview just to sit there and wait for 45 minutes. Eventually just left the store without interviewing. I do not want to work for a company whom doesn't value others time. No one from management even apologized for the long wait.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DICK'S Sporting Goods.

    Interview

    About a month after applying online, I was invited to interview on-campus. There was a pre-interview presentation, where the recruiter gave us some helpful information. Round 1 consisted of two back-to-back 30 minute interviews. Basic behavioral questions followed by more specific questions. Unfortunately, the company chose not to contact me following the first round of interviews. My follow up communications with employees at the company were ignored as well. So fair warning, if you are not selected, you may never hear back from them. Don't waste your time waiting around for that email or phone call like I did!
