    N/A Open Interview Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Old Navy in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I completed an Old Navy application (on-line) in September. I was called (finally) last week (week of October 13). I attended the Open Interview (e.g. Group Interview).

    The training manager asked all candidates to walk around the store and select an outfit. After all candidates did so, we were directed to the breakroom. We introduced ourselves, then asked to explain why we chose the outfit. In addition, we were told to bring an item that is special to us and we were asked to "introduce" that item and tell why the item was special. This group interview was brief and included a Q & A period.

    After putting away the outfits we selected, some candidates were dismissed and told "we'll call you on Monday". Those who weren't told this were asked to stay and we were ushered back to the breakroom.

    The manager asked to speak to me first and wanted to talk with me about my position of interest, hours/availability, or any other questions that I had. The two positions I was interested in did not fit into my schedule so the only position available was sales. The manager told me that she'd call on Monday.

    It's Tuesday and to date I haven't received a call or email from the manager.

    I would NOT feel sad or disappointed if I weren't selected for the position (i.e. sales) because it wasn't my first choice.

    More importantly, I put God first. If this job were meant for me, I woulda' been blessed with it.

    However, I do not like the unprofessionalism of this manager or anyone who says, "I'm gonna' do this." It's one of my pet peeves--if one says he's gonna' do something--do it! In hindsight I am glad that things happened this way 'cause it's an indication of her management style.

    I do not want to work for a manager who is unreliable and lacks follow through. This is a strong indicator of her being this way with scheduling, payroll, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • There wasn't a difficult or unexpected question in this interview as it was a group interview and the managers just wanted to "see" and "feel" if the candidate would be the right fit for the store. I am sure that looks/appearance, voice, and attire have a lot to do with deciding who will move on to the next step.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Old Navy in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I enjoyed the interview. A group of other 9 people and I went into the back meeting room with the manager. We were asked about our reason why we chose Old Navy and do an icebreaker activity in order to get to know one another. Then we were told to do a fun challenge on the sales floor. Our challenge was to put together a stylish outfit that resembles our fashion taste the best. It was super fun to grab accessories, shoes and clothes to create an outfit. Once we get back to the room, we volunteered to show our outfit and explain of why we chose these certain pieces. I didn't get the chance to show off my outfit, because time was cutting short and other interview group was waiting. Then the manager called a list of names for those who she wanted to speak individually and possibly set 2nd interviews. Unfortunately I wasn't called because there was a problem with the application and was told I can resend and give the manager a call. I did two follow ups, one over the phone and one in person, but I never got a response back. Despite the outcome, I enjoyed the interview. I had a great time getting to know other candidates and I felt very enthusiastic about the job.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Old Navy in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I filled out the application online and the next day they called me in for an interview! That girl I interviewed with was very nice and perky so she was super easy going to talk to. I was told I would receive a call within a week to know if I got the job or not. I was warned I would probably get a second interview because she wasn't the manager for the new location and I was completely fine with that! A week passed and no call received. So I called them and talked to the actual manager for the new location come to find out I was never in their record or system! He took my number and said they'd get to me within 24 hours and it's been way more than 24 hours and no call. So I called again and left a message saying I was still interested in the position and wanted a follow up. Very unprofessional.

    Interview Details

    First interview was on the phone, just asked three questions then was asked to come in for a group interview. Group interview was about 20 people and the whole interview was just the same exact three questions on the phone call. I was called back for the second interview which was a small group of 4 and we had to bring something we are passionate about. We then went out into the store, picked out an outfit and "sold" it to them.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Old Navy in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone call from their HR recruiter in charge of the req. The next day, we had a phone screening, and 3 days later he called to confirm a phone interview with the hiring manager, which took place 1 week from the original phone screening. Approximately 2 days later I received an email asking if I could come in the next day (Friday) or the following Monday for an in-person interview. I had to pay for the gas money to drive 100+ miles for this, they did not offer to reimburse. I spoke with 5 different people during a 2 hour period. I was told I would hear from the original HR recruiter when I left. Its now been 3 weeks since that day and I have not even had so much as a courtesy call to say they have moved on. I emailed the HR rep 2 times, and received no reply.

    Old Navy Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Old Navy.

    Interview Details

    Old Navy was having open auditions which are basically open interviews. I went in, and there were around 20 other people there so the interviewer split us into two groups and made the first group answer some questions and the second group pick out an outfit for their mother or father. She then made us switch. It was an easy, lighthearted, and fun interview. I then got a call from the manager the next day, asking me to come in for a one on one interview. I met with her, and she asked me some basic questions like who is your biggest inspiration, etc. I haven't gotten a call back so I'm guessing I didn't get the job.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Coralville, IA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Old Navy in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initially they called me about 2 days after I submitted my application online. We had a short phone interview with basic questions about availability and work ethic. Then, she asked me in for an audition where I had to demonstrate my ability to help customers and sell a product. She told me at the end of the interview that she would call me Monday to schedule orientation, after they ran a background check on me, but I've yet to hear back from her, and I know there wouldn't be anything on my background check to make them change their mind about me.
