    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FGL Sports (Calgary, AB) in August-2017.

    Interview

    Was called for prescreen, HR rep called at a good time mid-morning so we were able to complete the call right then, about 30 minutes. Was scheduled for an in person interview the following week which lasted one hour.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked many practical questions rather than the usual HR ones. Lots of interest in how I approached financial issues at my previous company.   Answer Question

    FGL | Sports Experts can tell if you take the easy way

    The athletic retailer uses thermal imaging to reward Metro riders who chose to be healthy and climb the stairs. Most people tend to take an escalator if given the choice, even though they know that it's more healthy to take the stairs. But maybe a little financial incentive will get them to make the active choice?
