General Manager Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Gap (Washington, DC).
Saw the position was open, so reached out to the listing recruiter to begin the conversation. Phone interview with recruiter, in-person interview with a Sr General Manager at a neighboring store, in-person interview with the District Manager, phone interview with the Regional Manager. I already knew other people within the organization who also reached out to the District Manager to recommend me from the inside. Because the recruiters work directly for Gap, not contract, once I passed the recruiter interview everything was handled by the District Manager. The process took nearly 8 weeks from the initial phone interview to offer. Gap uses Strengths Finder and Emotional Intelligence 2.0 for field leadership, so having done both of those and being able to speak to my Strengths and EI was very helpful in the process.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gap.
I was pleased to be reached by a recruiter on LinkedIn about an open position. She got me in contact with an HR person that I had a few conversations with and one phone interview lasting 2 hours. I then had a follow up phone interview with the DM and another phone interview with the HR person. Lastly I was invited to an in person interview with a training lady. All in all every interview went great, smooth conversation, no difficult questions I couldn't answer. They even talked about pay, bonuses, when I could start how my training would go. Was told I would get a call in a few days from the last interview and then I never heard a word again. I reached out twice over a month span but got nothing. Would've been nice to have some feedback after 5 in depth interviews.

The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Gap in August 2014.
The hiring and interview process was ridiculously long, over a month with three separate interviews all encompassing the same questions. Towards the end I almost just accepted a different offer from another company because I was tired of waiting on them.

The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Gap (Austin, TX) in September 2010.
I went through several different interviews. The first was with a recruiter who referred me to the District Manager. I then interviewed with a peer DM, and lastly with a Regional Director. Because of location, 3/4 interviews were done on the telephone. The questions were standard and leadership as well as behavioral based.
