    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gap (Altamonte Springs, FL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    A couple weeks after applying, I got a call to come in for a group interview. Arrived about 5 min early. Wore sort of casual white denim, striped top, and a nice blazer. It was supposed to be a group interview of 3 but there was only 2 of us. I personally thought the interview was a little long, it dragged for a little over an hour. Typical questions, lots of customer service scenarios. The other girl and I took turns answering the same question. Stumbled through some questions but made up with others. The manager was pretty chill overall, he seemed like he wanted to hire us from the start. At the end he said the background check would take about 24 hours and he would call us to follow up. As we were leaving the interview, the 3rd person showed up late and the manager turned them away. The next day he called with the job offer. I start next week training and I'm excited! The other girl that interviewed with me got the position as well.

    Interview

    Put in an application online and received a phone approximately two days later. We set an interview date for two days after that, and I showed up about 10-15 minutes early. Me and the other girls that were there started talking and realized it was a group interview. So we grouped together and the manager seemed to like that. We went in to a small room and we went around the room gave our name, and past work experience, what our personality was like and pur availability and then it was over.
