    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sports Authority.

    Interview

    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. The interview went very smooth. It was like having a simple conversation with the manager with a couple questions here and there. Very easy if you have retail background.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sports Authority (Woodside, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    It was very easy because the person interviewing me was my own cousin. So that made it go really light. If it wasn't for my cousin then I would have still got the job because I'm a very confident person

    Service Desk Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Englewood, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sports Authority (Englewood, CO).

    Interview

    Brought back from the reception room to the Managers office. The interview was very short and sweet, and the manager gave absolutely no verbal, physical, or other cues that the interview was going well or bad. I left the interview thinking it had gone horribly, but later learned that they liked me. Do not expect to know anything when you walk out of the interview.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cerritos, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sports Authority (Cerritos, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    A total joke. Got called in for an interview, went well, was told by the manager they'd call me for a second interview. I waited for two weeks, and didn't hear from them. After a week I called and they said to call back the following week as the hiring manager wasn't in. So after another week I called. He said they weren't hiring at this time. Total waste of time, not at all professionally done.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sports Authority (Chula Vista, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    First you have the basic interview where a manager just gets to know you. Then there is a more formal interview after you pass the online test. The final interview is with the general manager. So overall it is a three-step process

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sports Authority (Miami, FL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview has to have been the most comfortable thing I've ever faced. It didn't really feel like an interview. It felt more like a few questions in between a regular conversation you would normally have. When I walked in, I was pretty nervous but the young lady at the register reassured that everything was going to be okay. Being in there already made me feel like I joined a big family. He asked me some questions and hired me right on the spot.

    Operations Team Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lacey, WA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sports Authority (Lacey, WA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Very easy. First interview with SM was just about myself. Next day met with DM and he didn't ask any hard questions either. Just how I discipline, push sales, push rewards cards etc.
    Did not accept offer. Looks like cool place to work. Just too low of pay for ME.
