Interview Details – I applied online for The Gap , and the next day I got a call for an interview. The interview was a group interview with at least 20 people, there were three mangers and each one of them asked a question, and everyone took turns answering the question, and they did a little thing where you had to try and remember everyones name in the circle.

Interview Question – There were no difficult questions. When is there a time when you had to deal with a difficult customer? What is a time you made a mistake and how did you fix it? what is one word that describe you?   Answer Question

Store Manager Interview

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The Gap in May 2014.

Interview Details – They take a really long time to hire someone. The process is very slow moving, and there seems to be no variance in the numerous interviews you are required to go through. Everyone asked the same questions, they should perhaps consider a group interview to save time.

Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary, in fact a little to boring.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation they made a more then fair offer right up front.

Front-End Engineer Interview

Front-End Engineer
San Francisco, CA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at The Gap in January 2010.

Interview Details – The interview was pretty relaxed. They gave me a few reasonable programming questions for each of JavaScript, CSS, HTML and basic concepts. They were more interested in how I went about solving problems and doing the research needed to complete a task which I find much more telling than obscure or trick programming questions.

Interview Question – As I remember it was data set parsing question finding matched values in a large array.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – None as it was a contract position.
