    Sales Support Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    3 interviews - usually starts at each store and with the General Manager. Approval by the Regional manager. Filling out the usual paperwork and questions. Looking for someone with high energy. They will explain the job as one function, but will then have to handle more than what was first advertised or explained. Very little room for advancement as new management is brought in from the outside. Be careful of promises for career advancement. Will not happen.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods.

    Interview Details

    Basically asked you why you were applying for the position, what was minimally expected of you and what the position basically entailed. They did not go into much detail of the position and what was required of you as an apparel associate.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked what sports I was into and while that doesn't seem like an unexpected question working for a sporting goods retailer I was a little thrown. I was there interviewing for a part time job while going to school,not an in on how to get a discount on my favorite sports equipment.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I essentially applied online because there was a brand new Store opening in my city, after the first application I was then asked when will be a convenient time to interview with that at a hotel. Upon entering the hotel, I noticed I was the first person to be interviewed in a big room that had other stations for other candidates. I answered some average questions and scenerios and shared my love for sports. I then took a 55 questioned survey and was intervieed by the new store manager and the interview with him was more specific on terms of my value to the store. I presented myself to be a valuable asset given the fact I can wok for any department, and he then asked how much I was expecting to be paid; I answered back with a respectable $8. He then sent me out and after a few minutes, he approached me with a job offer on spot. I applied for a cashier position but was hired for Footwear associate and paid $10 an hour.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a time in your life(whether in your previous job or sport) that you had to deal with a frustrated person and how did you resolve the problem.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process took about 2 weeks. I was contacted about 4-5 days after submitting an application online to ask some basic questions and set up an in-person interview. I met with the soft lines manager for the first interview. It was a pretty standard, straight forward interview and was a very casual/non-intimidating atmosphere. After the interview, she had me take a computer test to check my competency as a person and potential employee. This took about 15-20 minutes. I was contacted 3 days after my first interview to come in the following Monday (3 days after I received the call). The second interview was basically the same as the first interview except I met with the store manager. I was contacted later the same day notifying me that I got the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Just a lot of basic interview questions, plus a few questions about favorite sports etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was very little negotiating as I was offered a salary towards the upper end of what they would normally offer someone for that position.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Dick's Sporting Goods.

    Interview Details

    It is really laid back. You meet with the Store Manager. He ask you a few questions. All person has to do is be able to hold a conversation. Talk about sports and what you enjoy about retail. When it comes to hiring a person just needs to be ready for a few online videos about the departments. That process take about half a day.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were very basic. How would handle a situation with a difficult customer?   View Answer
