    I worked at Golfsmith full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some decent people to work with.

    Cons

    Some people were not so decent to work with (my boss being one of them).

    Advice to Management

    They were just recently bought out by Golf Galaxy, so my advice would be too late.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Golfsmith (Livingston, NJ).

    Interview

    An interview with the general manager and sales manager. They are just really testing your basic knowledge and ability to perform in a retail setting. The sales associate is an entry level job so you do not need to have many years of experience. Most of the training is on the job, however you really need to have good people skills.
