    Interview

    The interview was quick. 15 minutes with no questions about my previous sales experience. A manager did ask me about my work papers tho. The only downside during the interview was interruption of other sales associates. interview process included filling out some paperwork that I do not remember now.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sports Authority.

    Interview

    I went in. I gave a fantastic interview (probably a better one than most of the candidates they had all month), and I still didn't get the job, even though they had a ton of positions opened in many locations. And it was all because I'm entering my forties. These ageists wasted my time

    Very easy. I got a phone call a couple days after putting in an application. After the phone call I had an interview within like 2 days and I was offered a position.
