Structured Interview Process
Leading athletic footwear brand Reebok looks for talented, fitness-focused team members for its retail stores. The footwear retailer uses a structured interview process to evaluate candidates for store jobs. In most cases, Reebok evaluates customers through phone interviews and 1:1 interviews.
Common Interview Questions
Phone interviews are brief and typically cover availability, career goals, and job experience. In the 1:1 interview, applicants answer basic questions, including:
- "What makes you the right person for the job?"
- "Why do you want to work at Reebok?"
- "Describe a time when you overcame a challenging problem."
- "Tell me about a time you worked in a team to accomplish a goal."
What to Wear
Come to the interview dressed in appropriate clothing. Collared shirts and dress pants typically suffice as wardrobe options. For footwear, show appreciation and passion for the brand by wearing Reebok shoes to the interview. Reebok prefers to hire workers that are "brand cheerleaders."
Making a Good Impression
Showing all-around knowledge of the company and the latest shoe trends also benefits Reebok job seekers. During the interview, provide honest and straightforward answers to all questions. Avoid long-winded responses. Instead, provide concise, well-thought-out answers. Show good communication skills by speaking in a calm, clear voice and maintaining proper eye contact with the interviewer. At the conclusion of the Reebok interview, thank the hiring manager for their time. The following day, send a personalized thank-you note to the Reebok interviewer.
