Sales Lead Interview

Average Interview

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 online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Gymboree (Lexington-Fayette, KY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Very short and informal. I was asked basic questions. The store was in need of a sales lead so it was a quick fill for them. I interviewed with the SM in person then had a phone interview with the DM. Both were relatively short and I was qualified for the position so they hired me.

    The interview wasnt that horrible. They ask you a couple questions, let you go on the floor and greet a few customers so they can get a feel of your customer skills. One interview is with the store manager and one with the Assistant with similar questions
