Easy Interview

Application

I applied online – interviewed at Gap (San Antonio, TX) in May 2015.

Interview

The interview was the easiest interview I have ever been to. It was basically an orientation, I- along with 2 others- got hired on the spot. The whole interview lasted about an hour. It was the best interview I've ever had.

Just be you, also you will most likely be in a group interview or 1-on-1 but they won't tell you. You have to make a whole outfit and explain why you chose the specific item during your interview.

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Gap (San Diego, CA) in May 2015.

    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.

    Interview

    They gave me a call to schedule an interview at their Times Square location. I was already nervous as it was my first job but when I got there the manager seemed to be in such a bad mood and none of my answers seem to satisfy him.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Gap (Gretna, NE) in April 2015.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Gap (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very smooth and easy. The Sr. Manger was a very nice lady who was very patient with every persons response. described the process of the group interview very well in the beginning and after the interview. 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.

    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!
