    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FGL Sports (Calgary, AB) in April-2017.

    Interview

    Submit your online application. Next step was a brief phone interview with their Talent Acquisition/HR department. Next step was initial interview with the e-commerce manager, in this situation they were hiring 3 people, so all 3 managers held the interview. After that there may have been an additional interview with the Associate VP of e-commerce.
