    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.
