Interview Details

Easy questions. Just about making decisions. Just keep in mind it's all about making the customer happy and doing the right thing. Sometimes it's a group interview, which is a lot easier. Smile, speak clearly, and relax. Don't kiss a**. They're looking for a hard working and smart employee.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Gap in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was in a group interview with six other people and the hiring manager. She asked a lot of typical interview questions that were listed in the other posts. The interview consisted of the manager asking questions, and whoever wanted to contribute would contribute. Everyone had an equal chance to answer each question. There was only one question that everyone had to answer, which was why we chose The Gap.

    Interview Questions
    • At the end of the interview, the manager told us to go out into the sales floor and create an outfit for a specific scenario.   Answer Question

    Interview Questions
    • None. Glassdoor helped a lot, they really just want to see who you are personality wise, don't be so uptight.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at The Gap in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Well I applied online, about a few days went by and I got a call asking if I was interested in interviewing. I had to go to an old navy to interview, our store was being built. I walked up to a few people standing outside the store (group interview) and little did I know 2 of them were the manager and the GM. They were so friendly! We went to the back and sat down, we went around and had to give our background and more about ourselves and stand up and share about our outfit and how it goes with our personality. We did a few generic questions and at the end we had to sale them a pink box to one of them. You had to think on your feet but it was really funny and a great way to end the interview. The same day I got a call to offer me the job.

    Interview Details

    I applied online at the website. About a week later, I got a call to interview the next evening at the store. The first interview was with the assistant manager and another associate. It was very informal, and they all seemed really friendly. Group interview. Questions included why this company, what do you think is the most important skill needed in this position, tell me about a time where you had to work as a team. I got called in for a second interview with another assistant manager. I was asked about availability, about times when I had to deal with a difficult customer, and other stuff. Was told I was going to be contacted a couple days later.
