    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Swim N Sport (Columbus, OH) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was asked scenarios of situations, I would give my feedback how I would handle the situation. We interviewed at Cozi's for about an hour. She asked if I was willing to work over my 43 hours that is required for managers. I said yes. When the store is not busy are you willing to work open to close when it is slow we expect our managers to be the only ones in store. She explained she has had nothing but trouble with this store, nobody taken deposits on time, people not opening the store.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Swim N Sport (Brandon, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    very basic, what did you do? What are your qualities? Why would you be a good fit? The company is very basic and dollar oriented, best to show a desire to make money by stressing the love for bonuses they offer and competition across the company for top roles.

    Interview Questions

    • what experience do you have in retail?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They low balled the offer but had already spilled the beans that they had few viable interviews so I was able to ask for a higher wage and got her to top out at a final offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Swim N Sport (Katy, TX) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I saw a hiring sign at the store and so I filled out an application their and handed it along with my resume straight to the manager. She told me she would call to "talk about my availability." it's took about two weeks to finally get an interview. When I came in I had to wait because she was already interviewing someone else. It took a while. Finally, I was taken to the break room to talk with the manager who asked me basic questions about my work ethic and informed me of the position requirements I was applying for. She told me they were going to do a background check and get back to me. This "background" check process took about three weeks. Finally I received a call offering me the job. Male sure you dress nice. NO JEANS. And don't have anyone with you during interview process or filling out application. Even if they wait outside, don't bring them.

    Negotiation

    Wasn't able to negotiate, it was more of a take it or leave it type deal. Pay is not competitive at all so there's really no need to negotiate. It is what it is.
