    Assistant Store Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sports Direct (Manchester, England) 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

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Sports Direct.

    Interview

    I was interested in a store manager position but after speaking to the recruitment team at the Milton Keynes job fair, it's not a company that I am at all interested in now. The people on the stand looked really unhappy, you can just tell it's a miserable place to work. They had some staff from the stores there too I think, they just didn't want to be there.
    Really poor, so if you were thinking about sports direct as an option, forget it. 70 hour weeks, for no praise or reward, no wonder the guys looked hacked off!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Sports Direct (Manchester, England) in July 2010.

    Interview

    I heard about a position from a friend and submitted a CV to the store. I've received a phone call in a couple of days and scheduled an interview in person. The interview lasted around 20 minutes and the hiring manager was polite. He asked me about my previous jobs and duties involved. After he finished interviewing me he informed me that I got the position.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Sports Direct.

    Interview

    there wasn't an interview, i applied with a cv in the store and they told me to fill in an online application form also, i didn't fill in the application form, but they must have liked me anyway, i was hired mainly for the christmas sales and it took a while for me to start working as they lost the copy of my passport a couple of times, it took about 1-2 months after i got the job to start working there, i suppose that they are looking for enthusiastic workers and people who can work in a team, so make sure you mention that in your cv

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sports Direct (Glasgow, Scotland) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Can't remember if there was a call, but the interview process was a basic face-to-face interview comprised of basic questions. Sitting in an office and just having a casual conversation. Questions were asked about previous experience. Other questions were basic and interview process was easy. Not much more to add, except its a really easy job to attain.
