    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
