    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Golf Galaxy (Bloomington, MN) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Called and scheduled an interview about a week after applying online. Met at the retail location with the General Store Manager. Asked questions about my previous experience, responsibilities, store volume, and employees I managed. The interviewer was professional but didn't seem to have all of my background correct even though he was looking at my resume. Be sure to stress a golf passion and ability to delegate.

    Wasn't the right fit. Pay was a bit low from what I was looking for.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    There was only the one interview, but I was an internal promotion so there might be more for outsiders. The interview itself was an hour long and was with the district manager and the general manager of the store. They asked any number of questions about how I would improve the store and how I would change knowing that I would be transitioning from Player's Assistant to Sales Manager

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate because I was young and stupid, but I think I could have earned another 10% or so by fighting a little harder.

    Players Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Elkridge, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Golf Galaxy (Elkridge, MD) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call asking to set up an interview in person. When I entered the store for the interview, I was greeted by generous employees. A manager named Troy interviewed me, and he was also respectful. We even talked about the Master's golf tournament. From what I remember, he asked four questions. Why Golf Galaxy? What is your current job? What is your previous work history? What is your availability? After that, there was a personality/skills test. It was about what you would do in hypothetical situations. I have no idea how I scored on the test. Within one week, I was offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I never negotiated, but I should have done that. If you have previous retail experience, then you should negotiate.
