Interview

I didn't have an interview because I did an internship there and they hired me during the holidays. Which was pretty easy and I'm still employed at Old Navy. Though wish they can give out more work opportunities.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Gap.

    Interview

    Applied at a job fair and online. Group interview with 5 people. Interviewer was very friendly and put us at ease. We pulled 2 different looks, one to describe us and another to wear in fall/winter. After explaining the looks we were asked a few questions. Overall it was good and dare I say fun?

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Gap in September 2014.

    Interview

    Apply when a big holiday is coming up because you almost guarantee to get the job, about 1-5 days they will call you to set up an interview with one of the managers there. They will ask you simple questions like why you wanna work there, your previous employers why you left, your hobbies etc. Also they will go over the policies they have. If you get the job job then you are required to watch some videos thats probably like 3 hours long, good thing about that is that you still get paid for watching them

    Interview

    I applies online and the process took about 1 week. I went in and was offered a position that same day. I had NO previous retail experience and was offered 8.50/hour but the manager increased it to $8.75/hr. Everyone there is super nice and willing to teach one another and help out whenever we can. Fast paced environment but worth it.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Gap (Orange, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    first I did the online application, about 2 weeks later, i got a call to come in for a group interview. I arrived 30 minutes early and looked around the store while the interviewer was getting ready. It was 4 people in total and we were taken to the back room and sat down at a couch. They asked us if we had any job experience, a time where we had to deal with people, and how we would describe our fashion style and who our fashion role model was. And that was it
