Application

I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Gap (Glendale, CA).

Interview

Applied to GAP GLENDALE GALLERIA through online application. Got called 3 weeks later for a group interview. I got there earlier than I was supposed to and gained a one-on-one interview for being early. The manager that interviewed me was really laid back and easy to talk to, wasn't like a regular interview. After the manager told me to call back 3 days later if I didn't here from him because he was willing to offer me a job but needed to talk to the other manager first in order to approve. I called back in 3 days and was told I'd need to go to a second interview. Later that day the other manager called and asked if I was willing to join and when there would be orientation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Gap (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Group interview with myself and 3 other people, not to be crude but I truly felt as though I was the best candidate for the position out of the group. The interviewer was very nice and genuinely seemed interested in me in particular but also in this other girl, who it seemed like she might have known her personally, or could see herself getting along with her as a friend. (i'm assuming that girl was the one chosen). She had tattoo's, cleavage popping out, and very poor grammar, and you could tell she had an attitude. She also hardly smiled, I told her she should smile and her response was "im not even worried, i know i got this job". Hence why I think she knew the interviewer . As you can tell, i REALLY wanted this job, and was really bummed, lol. Anyway, interviewer asked questions about what we would do in this/that situation, our personalities, our best qualities, and then we did a scenario where we put together an outfit in 5 minutes and explained why we picked it. So there you go.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Gap.

    Interview

    Extremely brief and easy. Their is high turnover, so they are usually looking for people. Try to get a job near the holidays and keep it indefinitely. Overall, a very easy process that was a breeze. I could see it being a little more stressful for someone who has never worked before.

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Gap.

    Interview

    2 interviews. Very professional and courteous staff in the store. I felt welcomed by all who I interacted with. One interview was with one assistant manager and one with the other. I didn't meet the store manager until after I was hired. Questions were fairly simple , some scenario-type proposals where you had to describe how you would react to a situation.

    Interview Questions

    • "Sell me this bra"- coming to a male applicant, a little difficult of a question. I can't remember if it was a bra- but it was something in the women's section that most men wouldn't wear.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate....whoops.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Gap (New York, NY) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Initially, they preformed a group interview. 6-8 people. I was interviewed by the GM of the store, who asked a few typical interview questions. They either go around the table for answers or they let you raise your hand. Half hour interview. The next day the GM called me for a second interview. The second interview was one on one, getting to know me personally. After he was satisfied we started doing the paperwork to hire me.
