Merchandising Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee
Chesterfield, MO

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Old Navy in August 2013.

Interview Details – First a fairly lengthy phone interview, then an "audition", which is a group interview. Then a third interview with was the job offer. I found out that there were two openings for the position I was applying for and I started with the other Merchandising Specialist on the same day. It was a very hasty interview process due to the need to fill the position. I should have taken that as a warning sign that the location had a high turn over rate - already both the other Merchandise Specialist and I have quit.

Interview Question – Why are you awesome?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations.
