    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gap (Winter Park, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was in a group interview. This was my first ever interview so I was really nervous, but the whole process was pretty easy. I got a call from them the same day as the interview offering me the job. The Next step was waiting for my background check to pass. Finally you have to set up a time for your orientation. I was told that when you start you are a seasonal worker for 90 days at $9 an hour; then if they like you, you will become part time at $10 an hour.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gap (Tacoma, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I met with one of the floor supervisors for the interview. I actually turned my application in on Monster.com and called the store to follow up on it only two days after submission. The floor supervisor asked me to come in that week for an interview. During the interview she went over the history of the company and asked me questions about my work experience. She then ended with saying she would love to have me apart of the team, and she thinks I would be a great fit. Friendliest and most laid back interview I've had.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    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!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed 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.

    Interview Questions

    • Have you ever had an issue with someone and how did you handle it?   Answer Question
    • What would you do if you were having problems with a customer?   Answer Question
