    Seasonal Sellebrity Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Old Navy (San Jose, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Was called by the hiring manager and had a 5 minute phone interview where he asked me basic questions like my availability, why I do I want to work at Old Navy, etc. He then invited me to the group audition a few days later and told me to bring one thing that I was passionate about. The audition had 10 people, including me. He first gave us a quick tour of the store, then took us to the back room where we got to know as many people there in the amount of time he gave us. He then told us the history of Old Navy and asked us some questions like what year the first store opened and what location the first store opened, and their most popular products. After this we played a game where we each drew a picture and had to keep a story going with each of our pictures. Then he divided us into groups and had us act out scenes from movies. Then we were put in pairs and told to go pick out an outfit and come back and we would have to sell it to him. Finally, we each talked about the items we brought and why we were passionate about it. It was my first interview and it was fun and easygoing.

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Old Navy (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I went through a two-stage interview process. I was first contacted by a talent recruiter within the company through email and then had about a half hour interview over the phone. I was told they had already seen my work, and thought I may be a fit for their future job opening. I was then asked to come into the corporate office to speak with a couple of people I may be working with. The atmosphere was casual, and the two department representatives that interviewed me were dressed very casually as well. I was a little taken back as there was very little to no structure of the interview and the job description was very open and vague as to what the day-to-day functions and reality of the role would really be. Their responses my questions were generic as well. Overall, the interview experience was not what I was expecting.

    Old Navy Sales Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Old Navy (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was very relaxing and nice. Most people are trying to impress of course the hiring manager it was a good experience. But we didn't have any individual and only did a group interview which is very disappointing because I was expecting more to be 1+1 and we just ended up picking the clothes for a date and tried my best, and I didn't get the job. Overall, it was a good experience for me.

    Sellebrity Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Old Navy (Brooklyn, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Good interview. Comfortable Atmosphere. Almost didn't "feel" like the traditional interview. Great learning about the hiring manager's career aspirations within old navy. It was a group interview, the hiring manager asked questions and a group of 10-15 people either waited in a row answering or volunteered the answer. It was the type of interview that was really easy to sit back & not answer any questions so in order to be noticed, one would have to speak up.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Old Navy (San Francisco, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    There were 18 other people there for an interview so we got split into groups of 5 or 6. My group then stood in a corner in the store and a currently Sellebrity asked us a few questions. It didn't feel like an interview at all and was very laid back.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Old Navy (Worcester, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Strange and unexpected, there were 6 people including me, it was awkward cause I was the only one dressed professional and everyone else was dressed in shorts and it didn't feel serious. They emailed me 37 minutes after the interview to tell me I didn't get the job, it was an automatic message so, I couldn't reply back and they didn't tell me what I did wrong. They didn't even consider me and it felt a little disrespectful. I worked really hard to get it too.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Old Navy in June 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted application online on a Thursday, then got a call from the manager on the following Sunday requesting to set up an interview the following week. I had gotten to the store 15 minutes early and was told to walk around the store and the manager would come and find me when he was ready. I eventually meet him and we go to the back room. He seemed very distracted and made it seem like he did not want to be there interviewing me at all. It was very rude, in my opinion, how he kept on looking at his computer when I was answering his questions. He also could not sit still. There was a total of like 6 questions and then he asked me if I had any questions for him. Once done with that, he said I'd have an answer within 7 days whether by email or phone. The interview was completed... he didn't even escort me out of the back room, so I had to find my way back. I got a little lost because I was really nervous when we were walking into his office and wasn't paying much attention to all the turns we made. All in all, the interview lasted less than 15 minutes, but that's kind of pushing it, probably more like 10. The next day I got an email saying I did not get the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Old Navy (San Francisco, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    There were about 20 other people waiting for the interview so we were split into groups of 5. We interviewed in a corner of the store while the other interviewees were waiting only several feet away. It was a very casual interview where we went around the circle and answered questions. She first asked us about our name, an interesting fact about ourselves then why old navy. She then asked where we got our fashion inspiration from. After that, we were given a minute to go around the sales floor and pick out two items to bring back. When everyone returned, we each said why we chose those items and what we could add to the outfit and where we could wear it. The interview was short and simple. It was more of a get to know you interview. She said she was going to review the applications later this week and start contacting people by the weekend.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Old Navy (Cedar Rapids, IA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Super easy interview. One other woman with me and the hiring manager. We were told to bring in something important to us and explain why. Then we rolled a die that had questions about ourselves on it, like 'what is your style?' or 'what was your favorite vacation spot?' After that, we had to make up a scenario and pick out an outfit based on it. She said we would hear from her in 48 hours. She never called, so I assumed I didn't get the job.
