    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    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

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Part Time Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rogers, AR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gymboree (Rogers, AR) in June 2016.

    Interview

    After applying online I got a call from the store manager at Gymboree to set up a time to interview. Showed up to the interview in business professional, got taken to the back room where it was a little messy and had the interview there. I interviewed with the assistant manager first and she actually had a list of interview questions that the company gives now. She was very sweet and nice though!

    A lot of the questions are more focused on your childhood, your accomplishments, etc.
    Go with questions written down to ask the interviewer too, and dress like you mean it. They love it.

    The interview was only like 20-30 minutes. It ended with a roleplay of me 'selling' the assistant manager a little girl's dress, shoes, and matching bowtie. When selling stuff they really want you to ask open ended questions so the customer cannot finish the conversation with the typical "Nah I'm just looking."

    After that, I was told I did well and that they'll call me for a second interview within the week. Got the call a few days later, went to the interview dressed well again. Met the store manager, and she didn't even really interview me, she just started printing the new hire paperwork and just had normal conversation of how things work in the store and all.
