    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Gap (London, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Came early so had to walk around for about 20 mins, which was very tedious. Was asked basic interview questions for about 10 mins, them they wanted to see how I interacted with customers and so was let out on the floor for about 30 mins, this was kind of difficult as I didn't know much about the different things they sold. Was told if A customer needed any help and I didnt know how to answer then I should ask her (the interviewer) or another employee, however when I did they looked annoyed that I had asked for help and almost reluctant to ask the back of house employees for the requests of the customer.

    Visual Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Gap (Milton Keynes, England (UK)) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I saw an advertisement in the window looking for visual associates. Could not find the vacancy online so rang the store, was asked to bring in a cv and ask for the Visual Manager. A few days later, I had an impromptu phone interview, then a first round interview with the visual manager and other visual associate and stylist. Then a second round interview with the district visual merchandiser. I was offered the role a few days after. Recruitment process was very long.

    The phone interview, was basically a background check and relevant skills. Then was asked to come for a first round interview and to bring along a mood board.
    The first round involved answering a very log list of questions with the visual manager, afterwards I was sent to the shop floor to style and outfit a female and male mannequins and then describing why. I then had to walk the floor and suggest improvements to the shop floor if I had the choice.
    After a couple of weeks I was told they could not decide between a few candidates so there was another round with the district visual coordinator. I had to pick a competitor and do a SWOT analysis. I then had to present and suggest what I would do to improve the visuals at Gap.
    A week later I was offered the job.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Gap (Fishkill, NY) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Interview process was pretty straight forward. You're asked to fill out a form, and with questions about your self, and your work ethic. Once this is done, you're taken around the site, to see what the company does, and get a brief overview of the company in case you were not aware.

    After this is, another set of interview, by a different panel. You are asked your availabilty, and potential start date, and given advise on how to proceed.

    You then do a drug test, and based on the result, you're given a call back.
