    I didn't have an interview because I did an internship there and they hired me during the holidays. Which was pretty easy and I'm still employed at Old Navy. Though wish they can give out more work opportunities.

    I applied online – interviewed at The Gap in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was really fun ! The manager or the person that's hiring you gives you a scenario dealing with what to wear. Then you would get 10 mins to pick out the perfect outfit. Afterwards, you would sit down with the person that is hiring you and they'll do the run down of basic questions.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at The Gap in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online as a sales associate. About 2 months later, I got a call to ask to come in for a group job interview. I dressed in black slacks and a nice top, not too business...more casual. The job interview consisted of the interviewer and two other potential hires. The interviewer would ask a question and then go down the line and we would all give our responses. At the end of the interview, she told us that she would call us if we got the job.

    I applied online – interviewed at The Gap in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, two days later got an email to come in and do a group interview. There was me and a few other girls. Manger was super friendly and engaging. It felt like I was just meeting some new people, as it was pretty stress free. I tried to be outgoing and that appeared to be key. The quieter girls did not get hired. Got a call few days later and they offered me a position.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at The Gap.

    Interview Details

    Applied at a job fair and online. Group interview with 5 people. Interviewer was very friendly and put us at ease. We pulled 2 different looks, one to describe us and another to wear in fall/winter. After explaining the looks we were asked a few questions. Overall it was good and dare I say fun?

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at The Gap in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Apply when a big holiday is coming up because you almost guarantee to get the job, about 1-5 days they will call you to set up an interview with one of the managers there. They will ask you simple questions like why you wanna work there, your previous employers why you left, your hobbies etc. Also they will go over the policies they have. If you get the job job then you are required to watch some videos thats probably like 3 hours long, good thing about that is that you still get paid for watching them
