Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Gap (New York, NY) in May 2015.

Interview

Overall, interviewing with Gap was a really positive experience. The store managers who interviewed me were friendly and casual, and gave me feedback on my answers. They were really interested in my fashion experience and my personal style. At the end of the interview, I went onto the floor and styled a couple outfits that I would wear. The whole process took about 45 minutes.

    Interview

    Relaxed and conversational! We sat on a bench outside of the store and it was a one on one interview with the hiring manager at Gap. She was an older woman, and she was very relaxed and comfortable. Answer honestly, and intelligently. Know what job your applying for and the qualities desired for that job or industry.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Gap (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online for this job at Times Square and received a call to come in for an interview. I came in for the interview and the lady told me my time scheduled was 5:15 but I was told to come in at 5:30 which really sucks. She told me that she would contact me again to reschedule an interview because now she has to be on the floor. Total waste of my time. I love shopping here and I know that I would've probably loved working here. Too bad things didn't go as I hoped. I have another interview for Sabon and American Eagle coming up... Hopefully those interviews will go well.

    Very smooth and easy.

She asked everyone to pick an outfit for her friend's babyshower and one outfit that best represents our personal style and taste in 5 min. overall Gap is very flexible with students with complicating schedules. the whole interview took 30min.

    Interview

    It was an incredibly easy interview. I have had lots of experience in customer service, so that is what really sealed the deal. The manager who interviewed me was so kind and easy going. She did not ask me very many questions beside the basics of my past experience, how much I plan to work, etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Gap (San Jose, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online back in the beginning of January and got a super unexpected call in the middle of March. I guess it had to do with the hiring process, because I was told they were hiring a lot of people now. The interview was very laid back but went very well, felt just like a conversation and not an interview. I was interviewed in the middle of the store so I was expecting to be pulling items off the rack for an outfit. It barely lasted about seven minutes but by the end of it I think she had already made her decision, felt pretty good about it. Got a call back on Friday (interview was on Monday). They are looking for "energetic, friendly, smiling people" so just be yourself!
