    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Gap (Rochester, NY).

    Interview

    Simple questions and was mostly asked to explain who I am, strengths, weaknesses, difficult situations I've over come, etc. It was a very easy interview and overall I felt very comfortable. Due to it being very laid back and open enough for me to not feel stressed!

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate because they normally start off at 9 an hour for sales associates (hired Aug-2014)but it will be going up to 10 an hour in June 2015.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Gap in May 2015.

    Interview

    When I came in I told the cashier I was there for an interview and she called the manager out and told me to look around while I waited. The manager greeted me and lead me to her office in the back for the interview. First, I filled out a form saying the hours I am available each day and if I have any upcoming vacations. She then asked me questions like "Have you ever had an issue with someone, and how did you handle it?" and "When was a time you had to act as a leader and how do you think you handle that?". Those were two of the more difficult ones but she also asked me what influences my style and things like that. I didn't get the typical what is your biggest weakness question, which is awesome. She said she would call my references and get back to me. I was offered a position without a second interview, which they usually do.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Gap (Arcadia, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online to Baby Gap/ Gap Kids in Arcadia, CA, around late October and received a call 2 weeks after for a group interview. The hiring manager basically told us this was going to be the easiest and quickest interview ever and said that we are all already hired for the holiday season. The pay is $9.25. It was a group of 6 including myself. We were selected based on our survey/behavioral test that was part of the online application. Orientation was that same week for 2 hours filling out paper work and watching two discs of company policy, loss prevention, etc. We also toured the store and were given our employee IDs. The Gap card is important for commission and must be informed to every customer as a cashier or as a sales associate helping with fitting rooms etc. Waiting for my first official day!

    Dress code is no sandals, no logos, no crop tops, and no hoodies. Jewelry, sneakers, and practically anything is allowed as long as it's appropriate for the season.

    Good luck!

    Interview

    Submit job application online. Do not bother asking for an application in store...they'll just give you a little card that tells you to apply online. The online application is followed by an online test which tests your organizational skills and workplace ethics. If you meet their needs, they call you for a group interview. If you pass that, they call you for a one on one.

    Interview Questions

    • Group interview: Tell me about a particular time where you demonstrated leadership skills.
      One on one: Sell me something....which can be whatever is that you have on you such as articles of clothing, wallet, purse, etc.
