    Gap Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lakewood, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lakewood, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at The Gap in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a phone call two days later from the manager asking me to come in and interview. The interview was at a different location than the location I applied to work at. I had to drive over an hour to get to the interview location. The manager who interviewed me was super nice. The interview was a group interview, which I was unaware of. Although I was nervous about being interviewed in a group at first, the other two men who were in the group were even more nervous and kept fumbling. The process was fairly casual with fairly easy questions. They were mostly about how you got along with former employers and work mates and how well you worked in a group. At the end of the interview the manager each spoke to us one on one. He told me he thought I would be a great fit and needed to run my information through the system and he would contact me as soon as possible. The next day I got a call from him saying they would love to have me begin the job as soon as possible. The following day I went to the store for an orientation and got my schedule for that week! Extremely quick process.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at The Gap in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    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!
