    Interview

    Easy and straight forward. Asked general questions about background and what sports mean to you. After being hired they started training on multiple parts of the store. Then they worked me into the schedule slowly making sure I was not getting overwhelmed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DICK'S Sporting Goods (Rochester, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    This place is very unprofessional and incredibly slow. The first time I applied, I was more than qualified but because of my availability I checked on the application, my resume was ignored and I was not able to speak to a manager when I went in to follow up. It was rude service and I was ignored. My 2nd experience applying, being even more qualified, I called to follow up and was told they were not hiring. The next day I received a call asking me to interview. (Little confusing) The first interview with an HR person was easy, had to do an online survey. She said I was more than qualified but had to do another interview with the manager. Set it up for the next day and then they called to cancel it and schedule it 2 days later. Store manager said the same thing, that I was more than qualified and just what they needed in the department, but still wouldn't make me an offer. Waited another 3 days and recieved a call saying that because I had a summer job back home and was still on their payroll, Dicks could not hire me. So they wasted about 3 weeks of my time.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work at Dicks, what sports do you play, example of angry customer, what is good customer service   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DICK'S Sporting Goods (Butler, PA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Went through two interviews. The first was to basically filter out people that didn't seem like they would fit the organization. The second was to confirm the applicant's want to work for them and place them in an area of specialization. Interview processes may differ from store to store though.
