Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sports Authority (Goleta, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    So I had submitted my application through there website and I checked the next day at the store with one of the managers that I had submitted an application. Then I got a call like two or three days later and it was the store manager who asked when I would be available to come by the store for an interview. The interview itself was brief and easy. Dave the store manager was very awesome and really nice. Dave would ask me questions of past work experience and what type of person I am. Plus other simple questions that were fairly easy to answer.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sports Authority in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very laid back. I spoke to two managers at the store. Was more of a friendly conversation than an interveiw. They do what to hear about your background in sports so make sure to talk about that during the interveiw. I also dressed up in a dress form my interveiw as well and brought them a copy of my resume even though I had already given them one with the online application. I filled out.

    Interview

    I filled out application online and within 2 weeks I was called in for the easiest interview of my life. Keep In mind I have had 5 jobs before. They only asked a few questions such as my prior work history and why would I be a good fit to the company. One week after that I was hired. Sports authority does hire felons! I have multiple felony convictions and I was still hired.
