Interview Details

The application was longer than I thought it would be. It requires basic info, name, DOB, etc, but then you have to take their assessment to see if you are right for the position. It was okay though, it almost felt like an interview. it gives you different situations with five different responses and you say if you would do or wouldn't do that response, then you pick the worst and best response.

Interview Questions
  • What would you do if a customer wanted to return an item later than policy allows, and then gets violent/loud when you say it is against policy?   Answer Question

Manager said she'd call me next week regarding her decision. When I went home and checked my email, already had a rejection email.

    Received a phone call from Emily, then was given a scheduled group interview the following week. There were 6 others we were asked why were here and in a group interview you all take turns answering, its interesting what some some people say at interviews:0
    After the question within the group we were individually taken aside to play a scenario and try to sell a credit card, also asked to go pick out an outfit for a 11 year old. I am 28 and was probably the oldest one there it felt more for teens.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Gap in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed at a different location than which I applied. I met first with the assistant store manager, who asked me to put together an outfit for a potential customer (I was given a scenario and about 15 minutes to prepare). My interview went exceptionally well.

    I was called back to interview at the store I had applied for. They didn't have my paperwork or application, but gave me a basic 5-minute interview and offered me the position -- UNTIL I stated I couldn't work Christmas Eve.

    They said they would call me back and let me know either way, and I never received a response.
