    Assistant Producer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Gap (San Francisco, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me about the role at corporate and set up the phone interview with the department manager. The interview was maybe 15 minutes long, with the interviewer reading quickly through a list of questions. I was a little flustered because they read everything off really fast as if they were reading a script. It was a little unnerving. They asked maybe three questions, then ended the interview abruptly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Gap (San Francisco, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Reached out by an internal recruiter and phone screened after expressing interest in the opportunity. Got a reply the next day to be interviewed after she presented me to their panel. The date was set up for a week later and I met with two people for the interview. Heard back 2.5 weeks later that they hired internally which I was somewhat ready for because many Gap interview reviews do mention they go internal frequently. Thought I did pretty well so not sure where the internal candidate came from being that it's an entry level position.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Overall good experience. I applied through my school site, first interview was at campus career center. Very friendly asked mostly about my previous experience, how well I knew gap, and why I was a good fit. Next was a project, where I had to come up with a new brand to add to their portfolio. They recommend about a week to prepare, but I definitely did not spend as much time as I could. In hindsight, I should have made mine more polished. They really want to see that you are well rounded and understand the creative side equally as the financial/strategy. Not asked to continue beyond this, but they went out of their way to give me a phone call explaining the pros and cons of my presentation and what I should improve on if I chose to reapply.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Gap (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I was recruited from my campus. So there was an initial one-to-one interview. They also had a group interview with other candidates from my college. When you make it past the those interviews, they fly you out to headquarters in San Francisco for another evaluation. It's rigorous, but they try to bring together a highly qualified group of people.
