    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sports Direct (Manchester, England (UK)) in March-2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and got invited to an interview at the store. Manager was texting on his phone at the beginning and didn't look professional at all. Interview lasted about 5 minutes for me and the candidate before me, even though the email said half an hour or something. The question sheet only had a few questions and we're all basic
