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.

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Old Navy in October 2010.
Interview Details – You apply online and then get a phone call if they are hiring. Then you go through an "on-boarding" process that is ridiculous. They expect you to bring something in that is of value to you so you can share it. It is very cheesy. Also pointless.
Interview Question – Share something that is important to you and why. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There wasn't one. I didn't even know my pay until I was in orientation.

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?

A lot of leadership questions but he said by Wednesday he was going to give me a call. By Tuesday I was hired

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Old Navy in October 2013.
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 Question – What inspires you?

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Old Navy in October 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online and received a call about two days later, where the manager asked me pretty much just one question "What makes you awesome?" After giving what I considered to be a good answer, the manager wanted me to come in the next day at 1pm to interview in person, but I couldn't, so she had my come in at 9am. The manager who was there at 9am (not the same one I spoke to on the phone) clearly wasn't expecting me, but she was very nice and said she could interview me anyway.
We went to the backroom where she asked me general customer service questions. She had a piece of paper that looked like a generic form they must use to interview candidates. She said right away that she really likes me and definitely wants me to come back for orientation. I wasn't actually sure what that meant, but she said I'd get a call later in the afternoon.
After not getting a call, I called the next day and was told my background check was in process and they'd give me a call. Three days later they called me, set me up for orientation and I started at orientation day. They never made it very clear that I got the job, but I assumed orientation meant I did (and it does!).
It was really easy. Just be yourself and smile :)
Interview Question – Probably on the phone when the manager asked "What makes you awesome?". Otherwise it was all general customer services questions. Answer Question
