    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DICK'S Sporting Goods (Hurst, TX).

    Interview

    It was a pretty standard interview for any type of big box retail location in a mall. Had a quick phone interview with the department manager, and then a face to face with the department manager. This face to face however was likely supposed to be with the store manager, but he was out of the office for one reason or another.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at DICK'S Sporting Goods (Union Gap, WA).

    There are 2 sets of interviews, one with an assistant manager and the second with the store manager. There were series of questions on you and sports, then about skills and background experience. Be prepared to give detailed description of experience you had in prior jobs, and explanations of how you used your skills in past experiences. The second interview is more on the position you are applying for, and why you feel you are a great candidate for the position. It also goes over more in-depth questions on the position, ando how you will react in situations and skills you will bring to the company.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at DICK'S Sporting Goods.

    Interview

    Talked to store manager multiple times over the phone. Was told each time that she was waiting on her staff and the district manager before she could set an person to person interview and that she was going to get back to me in a few days. I would follow up with her at the beginning of each week just to be told the same thing. Finally found out that the job was closed when I was looking at other store locations. Never received a call back after that, just that they will get back to me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at DICK'S Sporting Goods (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    There were two separate interviews, one with one of the department managers and one with the store manager. The department manager asked the real interview questions that are on every application (deaiing with stressful situations, how would you handle this, a time you received good/bad customer service), and the store manager asks how much you'd like to be paid and your schedule availability. If you make it to the store manager interview, it means you basically already landed the job.
