I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Old Navy in December 2013.
Interview Details – Met with two store managers, first with a manager of another store, then with the manager I would be working with. The two asked essentially the same questions. Finally met with the market leader, she asked more general questions, what my careers goals were, etc. I think it was more to get familiar with me than it was to interview me.

Interview Details –
I applied online on Monday morning and got a phone call at 12pm that same day asking for me to come in for an "audition" tuesday at 2:30pm. She requested I bring one item that I'm passionate about. I brought in my journal as i love writing. I arrived 15 minutes early and there was 2 other girls already there. As we waited, 3 other people arrived. The HR took us to the back room and had us sit at a table. She started by giving us a brief history on Old Navy. Then she had us go around and introduce ourselves. We talked about the items we brought. After we played 1 game of a Christmas edition of rock, paper, scissors and we had to act it out to get us comfortable. Then we played 2 games with dice. The first dice was go out on the floor and find the item of clothing the dice landed on and had to 'sell' it to the HR and the second dice was creating an outfit with that same clothing for the scenario the second dice landed on i.e first date. Afterwards, she told us she would give us a callback for the 2nd interview with the manager.
I got a callback about an hour later for the second interview with the store manger Wednesday. It was a one on one interview. It was brief and he asked me very few questions. He asked me: Whats one time I had to use one of my strengths to accomplish my goal, whats one thing I wanted to know about Old Navy. He hired me on the spot and asked about my availability.
Overall, I had been very nervous about the whole thing as this was my first job, but everything was much easier then I expected.

Interview Details – I applied online. After not hearing anything for a week I called and was told that they'd just started to look at applications and I should expect to hear from them in a week. After another week I still hadn't heard so I called again and left a message for the hiring associate. She called me back a couple of days later and set up a time for me to come in for a group "audition."The day of the audition there were 3 of us being interviewed. She asked really generic questions that she read off a card about our past work experiences and leadership styles. Then we had to go out into the store and make an outfit for a Holiday party and come back and present it to her and another leadership member. She said we'd hear back either way in a week. Again, a week went by and I didn't hear anything so I called to followup and left a message. I did this about 5 more times before I decided it just wasn't worth it.

Interview Details –
I got called for a interview Tuesday to come in on Thursday at 5pm. I was told to bring in a item I was passion about, so I brought in a picture. I was a half an hour early so I did a scope around the store(just to spare time), then I told one of the employees that I was waiting for a interview at 5pm. While I was waiting 7 other people arrived, and at 5 they started. They first did a tour around the store showing us as to where men's babies and women then we went in the back to finish the rest of the interview. They first gave us the history on old navy and where is started as well as to what's the company about. Then they told us to discuss what we brought in (what is our passion?) after that we played the game with dice. The first dice was what clothes was we gonna grab from the store and the second was who was we going to sell it too which was pretty cool. Then she told us that if they was interested in us that they was going to give us a call back.
I got a callback to meet with the store manager and it was going to be one on one interview on Monday . We discussed basically naming a time where you had to be a leader? What mistakes have you made that you learnt from? Describe a time where I was proud of myself? How do you feel about working with different company's? A lot of leadership questions but he said by Wednesday he was going to give me a call. By Tuesday I was hired
