    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Gymboree.

    Interview

    It was quick. I came in and was interviewd about my previous experience and why I wanted the position. Once that was over I was required to sing a song (because singing is such a big part of that job) but after that, there were a few more questions about availability and then I received an email a few days later saying I had gotten the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gymboree.

    Interview

    I am typically very nervous during interviews. For this job there were two interviews. The first was at the mall. The manager made me feel very comfortable and didn't ask any questions I wasn't expecting. The second interview was over the phone due to poor weather conditions. It Was the most relaxed interview ever! I felt like I was having a conversation with a friend. The DMX gave examples when asking questions so there was no ambiguity as to what she was asking of me.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Gymboree in January 2017.

    Interview

    First, I had an interview with the recruiter. Afterwards, I had 3 separate interviews with different people. All friendly and fairly easy to set-up interview times. The interviews each took about 30-minutes. Got to talk about myself & my background. They asked a few questions, and then I had a chance to ask questions. They explained very well & detailed what the role would entail and the responsibilities that come with it.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Horrible, very rude staff. Leave you waiting with no phone calls back after promising to call. Basic common courtesy could go a long way in the company. Do not recommend any qualified people apply

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Gymboree.

    Interview

    Easily applied online and was called less than a week later for an interview. Arrived at the store and ended up waiting about 30 minuets for the assistant manager to interview me, because she misplaced my application! The interview process was held in the very center of the mall (which was very noisy) and took about 40 minuets. Was told that I would get a call from the head manager the very next day for a second interview, but never did. Called back to see if I had the job, and was pretty much told that I didn't get it. Did not like the assistant manager's snobby attitude.
