    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sports Authority.

    Interview

    The interview was quick. 15 minutes with no questions about my previous sales experience. A manager did ask me about my work papers tho. The only downside during the interview was interruption of other sales associates. interview process included filling out some paperwork that I do not remember now.

    Interview Questions

    • Did you have papers to work? (Really??? It was my first question during the interview).   1 Answer

    It's now officially Super Bowl week so there's only so much time for to get last minute shopping done for Broncos' gear. "We have a spirit day at work and today is Manning Monday, tail-gate Tuesday, Wednesday is our throwback day, Thursday is all about defense. That's why I bought the Von Miller jersey."
