Sales Associate Interview

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.

    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.

    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.
