    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, PA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Gap (Washington, PA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    This was the first job I ever had and was the time when online applications was starting to boom. I went to the store and spoke to a manager who referred me to the site with a code also. I made an account and filed out the application. After a few days no one called so I called them and scheduled an interview. The woman who interviewed me was really nice and we went to a coffee shop across from the store to have the interview. It was kind of awkward but included your typical "Tell me about yourself and your hobbies," questions. So after that awfulness she told me I was a sure hire but she still had to background check me. (No drug test required at the time.) Of course no one called for two days so I called them and the woman who interviewed me went of town. But when she came back we talked and badda boom badda bang I had a job.

    Interview Questions

    • Every interview includes "Tell me about yourself." Which for me is essentially the most difficult question because I don't like to talk about myself (at least not out loud). But all they really want is to know that you are well established and can communicate. The best thing to do for this question is to think of what you're going to say beforehand. Think of something prominent in your life (i.e. your mom, siblings, drama class, football team, cheerleading) and make up a little script about it and how that's important then throw in other little details about things you do or things that make you (i.e. you're a master braider, best Barbie dress maker, spelling bee champ) and wah - lah you started a long conversation and probably passed the interview at this point.   Answer Question

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Gap (Philadelphia, PA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Relate, Engage, Advise, Listen = REAL are the four major skills that Gap is really looking for. They want to make sure their associate are able to establish a connection with the customer in order to solve their problem. They're also looking for people that are passionate about fashion and Gap. I told my interview about how I grew up as a Gap kid and recalling shopping with my mom all the time. She also asked me about my interest and we bonded over makeup. So the interview didn't even really end up being about the Gap. We just found a common interest and were able to relate, engage, advise, and listen.
