    Operations Supervisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Gap.

    Interview Details

    Too much and too long for the position. They want perfection instead of experience and help them grow. When i was hired, the interview process was not as complex as they are making it today, and they wonder why they can't get in candidates and the current staff is suffering.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at The Gap.

    Interview Details

    Extremely brief and easy. Their is high turnover, so they are usually looking for people. Try to get a job near the holidays and keep it indefinitely. Overall, a very easy process that was a breeze. I could see it being a little more stressful for someone who has never worked before.

    Interview Details

    Terrible. I did not receive any feedback after the first phone interview even though the Sr. executive recruiter promised she will definitely get back to me on the next Monday. I followed up and then decided not to follow up for the 3rd time.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Gap.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Took a few weeks for them to contact me. The interview is not a simple "sit and talk." They interviewed me and another candidate at the same time out in the middle of the store. Asked us the basic questions like "what can you contribute, how does your personality fit in, why Gap, how do you reactin so and so situation?" Then they made us pick out an outfit and "sell" it to them. They were very friendly, but it was kind of awkward just standing there for like 10 minutes while customers were walking around.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Gap.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Recruiter contacted me within a couple of weeks to ask basic questions about my background and salary expectations. Had a phone interview with the hiring manager. Had an onsite interview a week after. Was told I would hear from them regarding next steps in a couple of weeks. 2 months later, and nothing. I reached out to the recruiter a couple of times, but never heard back from her. I have heard that this is normal. The Gap is known for their awful recruiting team.
