Manager Interview

Manager
Albany, NY

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Gap in August 2009.

Interview Details – it was a challenging process with several steps and backround checks it was pretty interesting and many people that you had to deak with on all levels. There was defintly a sense of having to play the political game but they made you feel as though it would all be worth it. But the challenges would be rewarding and that the stores were complex

Interview Question – what does great customer service look like   View Answer

I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at The Gap in November 2008.

Interview Details – I was already working at another store so i knew what to expect. They ask questions about specific situations and how you would handle them. Dont give them "canned' answers, they want you to be original. Also, mention that you understand how customer service effects sales, hours, and Gap Card applications. They love the Gap card!

Interview Question – How would the store benefit by adding you to our team?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Ask for a slightly higher rate of pay than you would like (within reason). If its too high they'll tell you so and ask whats the least you would take. Before applying keep in mind that poor sales will effect you!

Manager Interview

Manager
San Francisco, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Gap in April 2007.

Interview Details – The interview was informal with half hour sessions with 4 different cross funtional partners. Each interview focused on a key focus (financial acumen, competitive landscape, managing and operating, partnerships). The interviews were conversations that probed about my ability to handle the job, fit within the team culture and my business acumen.

Interview Question – How would you describe Net Present Value in laymen's terms?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I had no negotiation leverage since I was an internal hire.
