    Fairly easy interview, looked at resume and asked questions regarding previous experiences. Then went on to explain job duties and what to expect. The interview lasted around 10 to 15 minutes but it felt even shorter.

    Interview Details

    Very Basic and interviewer did not ask a large amount of questions. Was asked why I wanted to work at the Gap. Asked about scheduling conflicts and hours available. Very laid back interview. Offered the position and was told a background check would be needed. Overall a very simple process to get hired.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at The Gap in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at The Gap.

    Interview Details

    Relatively simple. I applied online and received a call about interviewing. The managers I met were friendly, the interview was detailed. They asked several questions about selling techniques and customer service. I did pretty well, just answer questions as you truly feel and you'll be fine. They seemed like they really care about customer service.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Gap in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was rather easy. I applied on a Monday and on Thursday I had my interview set-up. It was a group interview. So I was rather scared since group interviews are not my thing. I waited about 3 days and I got a call offering me a position and to set up my orientation day.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at The Gap in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on Tuesday late evening and by Wednesday I was called for a brief phone interview. After I passed I was given a face to face interview for the next day. First off the interviewer started very unprofessional by being late then it continued with her having a nasty attitude. I wouldn't want to work for this location if that's the type of people who will be managing me.

    Gap conducted on the spot interviews at a job fair. It was surprising. They asked basic questions. They were friendly and professional despite conducting interviews in a gym. I received a call from them about a week later.
