Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

Seasonal Sales Associate

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Old Navy.

Interview Details – Applied online through the Gap Inc. career site for seasonal sales associate position. I got a phone call about a week later to come to a group interview. Our group interview was quite large, probably about 20 people. I received an offer later that day.

Interview Question – Talk about a time when you had to deal with a difficult customer and how you resolved the situation. In general, the group interview setting may be intimating for some, since you have to be proactive to answer the questions, as interviewer did not call on us each individually. (This might be different for a smaller interview group).   Answer Question

Portland, OR

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

Interview Details – The hiring process was quick and easy. Applied online in October of 2013 and was called the next day to attend a group interview the same day. The group interview was laid back with simple questions. It's hard to stand out so try to be the first the answer the questions. After the group interview, each applicant had a private interview with either the store manager or assistant store manager. The next day, I was given the job. After the holiday season was over, I was kept along with around 5 other seasonal applicants.

Interview Question – The most difficult question was "Why are you awesome?". Coming up with an original answer to this question is very difficult.   View Answer

Had a second normal interview in the back, asked about availability, etc.

Interview Question – During the group interview, they had a big die that you rolled and had to make an outfit from what the outcome of the die was. For example, teenage girl on picture day.   View Answer

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Old Navy in November 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and they called me within a week and told me I needed to bring an item that was special to me to the interview.
I went in and it was a group interview with five other people. We got to know each other, played a game, chose an outfit to present to each other and that was it. I brought my item, but we did nothing with it...
The manager conducting this audition asked a few of us to stay and told us she'd call to set up an interview.
I had my interview the next day and was hired.
SMILE, be friendly and be involved!

Interview Question – What's something you recently learned?
I was an idiot (I'm still in High School) and talked about school. Try and talk about life lessons.

Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

Seasonal Sales Associate
North Dartmouth, MA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Old Navy in October 2013.

Interview Details – I got a call a little after a week after applying and participated in a phone pre-screening with the hiring manager. She told me to bring an item I'm passionate about to the interview after setting me up for s group interview the next week.

At the interview, I was with three other candidates, all female and 2/3 of them were in school and I was the only girl there with no prior work experience. Anyway, we had to do an exercise where we had to break off in two groups of three and find three things we had in common. After that we colored and played games. The last exercise we had to do was go out on the sales floor and pick out an outfit to share with everyone. It took them 48 hours to call me about not being picked, even though I was the only one who had actual customer interaction the entire time. The odds were against me every step of the way because I had no prior experience, was not in college, and was probably the oldest candidate (I'm 20). The interview lasted an hour and fifteen minutes.

Interview Question – No difficult questions, just asked about how hard/easy every exercise was.   Answer Question
