    I have been working at Sport Chek part-time

    Pros

    The employee discount and overall atmosphere. In the middle of the mall so I’m always seeing people I know

    Cons

    Often getting booked on days I say I’m not available and it’s hard to get rid of a shift

    Advice to Management

    Not much, overall happy with management they are all super nice and chill

    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Timmins, ON
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sport Chek (Timmins, ON).

    Interview

    I had been asked to hand in a resume while working at another retail store. I was given an interview two days after and asked to bring in my reference information. The interview was with the store manager and soft goods manager. They asked me questions about my work ethic, experience and ambitions. They were kind, straight forward and made the intentions and expectations of the job clear. They explained the type of work environment I would be joining, the type of hours I would be working and the pay I would start at until my probation was over. Overall the managers were friendly, personable and made the process relaxing while still asking appropriate questions.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me if I was comfortable having to change everything in a department by not only moving around product but moving fixtures and changing wall plans when necessary.   1 Answer
