    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sports Direct.

    Interview

    I walked into the store to be told that they weren't expecting me as the manager wasn't in and the assistant manager had only been told that morning. The staff were rude and made me feel unwelcome, but the assistant manager was nice. Easy interview with only a few questions regarding week day availability and experience. I was offered the job that day and accepted. But then heard nothing from them, I repeatedly tried to call the store but they never answered. Incredibly rude.
