    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Gymboree (Lexington-Fayette, KY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Very short and informal. I was asked basic questions. The store was in need of a sales lead so it was a quick fill for them. I interviewed with the SM in person then had a phone interview with the DM. Both were relatively short and I was qualified for the position so they hired me.

    Very brief and structured. Hiring manager read from a template (a bunch of papers) and scribbled notes. Questions were fine but seemed wordy and repetitive. Many seemed unrelated to the position for which I was applying.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gymboree (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    1. You apply online or in person. 2. Interview with store manager. 3. Interview with district manager 4. If the District Manager likes you, you have the job.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. They will ask you how many hours you expect. If you expect a lot, they won't hire you. Say you're open (18-30hrs max a week, usually on the lower side is what they give you). 2. They ask for your availability. Have no life and be able to dedicate your hours here and you'll be fine. Be open. 3. Go on and on about how you're great at customer service. 4. Go on and on about how you are great at selling. 5. If they do a roleplay with you, the key to success is point out sales (signs are everywhere) and add additional item to what they ask for. 6. Make sure you mention how you are the best at loss prevention and how you're always aware of your surroundings. The questions will be centered around the above. Your answers should include all of them. Additional: They do no drug test and their background checks consist of simply calling your refs. The company is too cheep to pay for drug tests or background checks. Which is why you end up with a staff that are on drugs, have issues with the law, or have a police record. People would come to work high or drunk, and if they could hide it they got away with it. It was horrible.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. You won't get much. Nothing higher than $12. Usually $8-$9.
