    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sports Authority.

    Interview

    After applying online, I didn't hear from them. So 2 weeks later, I walked into the store, asked for the manager, and got hired in 5 minutes. That's how most employees end up working there. Don't just apply online and wait to be called. I just had to wait a couple of days for the background check to come through.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sports Authority.

    Interview

    Contacted by phone. They asked a few personal questions over the phone. Went on to schedule an in person interview at the store. Everyone seemed very welcoming. Management is very flexible with what times you can meet them. The interview consisted of simple questions. What are your strengths and weaknesses? What sports are you most familiar with? What area in store would you feel most comfortable in? When I started, they tried me in every area and placed me where I was most successful and comfortable.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sports Authority in September 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online on Tuesday. Received a call a week later to come in the next day. Manager was nice and laid back. Interview lasted about 15 minutes. She really liked my interview. She liked me so much that she said I'll do better on the floor as a sales associate in footwear. Said I'll be getting paid 8.50 or 9.00 an hour. She made it seem as if I already had the job. Told me I'll be receiving a call within the week to come back on either Friday or Saturday for my second interview. Friday comes, and still didn't get a call. I called, spoke to the manager that interviewed me to find out that the other manager already filled the position. Huge disappointment and shows lack of communication within management.

    Technical Service Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Littleton, CO
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sports Authority (Littleton, CO).

    Interview

    I dressed up in a suit and tie, and prepared for an interview like normal. I was sent to the restroom/office area to meet an associate. I don't know what his job title was but he was dressed in shorts, and a black t-shirt. We sat down in rolling chairs, in some sort of utility room. He goes straight into explaining that they are hiring for the SNIAGRAB event. A wonderful, two week long winter clearance event!!! Exactly the opposite of what I wanted. He hadn't even looked at my application until I told him that I applied for the Tech position. He looked at my app, and confirmed that was the case. That's when we talked about my qualifications, which I had. But "the position had been filled." I said "Thanks," and he walked me out. It's basically an interview where as long as you show up, you're hired... Be prepared for the Bait and Switch.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sports Authority (Torrance, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I got a call the day before. The interview was very easy. The manager who interviewed me was super chill and laid back. Felt more like a conversation rather than an interview. For me most interviews are awkward or make me feel super awkward, but I was actually very comfortable. Told me I might get another call for a second interview or an orientation. Got a call for an orientation.
