Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Finish Line (Columbus, OH) in May 2017.

Interview

I got a call from the store manager and scheduled an interview. Everything was very low key and basic. The whole interview only took about 15 minutes. We were in a location in Macy's and we sat and talked on a couch in the furniture section.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    It was one interview, very easy and typical of a retail job interview setting. It was a one on one interview where they asked a lot of questions that mainly had to do with getting to know the person in a quick 20-30 minutes interview session.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Finish Line (San Antonio, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was quick and easy in my opinion and the MIT that was interviewing me basically told me I got the job right then and there. He told me to go ahead and get a deposit slip from my bank and also to download this app that they use to get their pay stubs and request days off. I felt really good after the interview :)

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Finish Line.

    Interview

    They pull you aside in the mall and ask standard questions about yourself. Overall, the process is pretty simple and straightforward. Just be yourself and communicate that your comfortable greeting people into the store. This company really communicates team work and put the customer first. The general manager also asks questions like: Explain yourself? How would you deal with an unhappy customer? How would you handle, multiple customers asking your help?

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Finish Line (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Very easy and not really personal. They don't care too much about the quality of employee they hire as long as they have bodies. If you get an interview you pretty much get the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Finish Line (Rockaway, NJ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online to the new location at Rockaway Mall in New Jersey and got a call back a few days later asking me to come in for an interview. This was back in November at the time when the new store at that location was being opened. I came in and had an interview with the hiring manager who was really open and nice. She asked me a lot of typical interview questions such as what my greatest strengths and weaknesses were. She also asked me what my greatest accomplishment was. I gave my best answers and she nodded. It was a really easy-going conversation. She told me I would hear back in a week. A week passed and I didn't hear anything back. I then called to follow up and express my interest and she apologized and said she needed a few more days to decide. Still nothing. When I went to the mall again, I saw that the location was opened and that a few associates were already working there. I guess I got my answer. I also happened to see another candidate get interviewed weeks later as I was passing by to another store one day. Experiences like this really make me question which hiring managers I can trust and if I can ever trust them again. They also diminish my self-confidence.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Finish Line (Downey, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Got a call 3 days after applying. The interview was 1 hour long and one on one, outside in the food court with the manager. No drug test. They do check references because I got a call 2 days later from the manager asking for a different reference because that reference wasn't available. The manager called me back a few hours after speaking to my reference to offer me the position.
