    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sports Direct (Crewe, England) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewer was really nice and friendly and did the talking for the majority of the interview. The only proper question he asked was "What do you know about Sports Direct?" which I strongly recommend you do some research on beforehand because i didn't know anything besides the bad things about in the media which he was impressed with because no one else knew. Other than that he just asked about availability and I then an email saying i got the job an hour later when all i did throughout the while interview was smile and say yeah.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sports Direct.

    Interview

    I walked into the store to be told that they weren't expecting me as the manager wasn't in and the assistant manager had only been told that morning. The staff were rude and made me feel unwelcome, but the assistant manager was nice. Easy interview with only a few questions regarding week day availability and experience. I was offered the job that day and accepted. But then heard nothing from them, I repeatedly tried to call the store but they never answered. Incredibly rude.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sports Direct in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online through Indeed and got an email back about a month later to book an interview. Had to pick a time slot which were 20 minutes each. Went to the interview, the interviewer read my cv and gave me the questions he would ask to think about while he read my cv. Asked me a few questions and said he would ring or email me later that day (but didn't hear back for a couple of days). The interview was laid back
