Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at The Gap in October 2013.
Interview Details – The online application was very long and took at least 2 hours. After submitting the online application I was called in for an interview that lasted less than 20 minutes. I was hired immediately and began working the next day.
Interview Question – I was asked why I wanted a part time job even though I was already employed somewhere else. View Answer
Negotiation Details – I didn't have the opportunity to negotiate a price.
I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at The Gap.
Interview Details – Very nice interview done by first a sales lead but it was more like a screening interview to get a feel of my personality then another more serious interview by another sales lead followed by a last interview by a customer experience manager. Basic questions about who you are, what your planning to do if you were to get hired and your availability. For me the hiring process was pretty fast I was had two interviews one each day and was hired on the third.
Interview Question – Nothing I can recall it was a very easy interview Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at The Gap in September 2013.
Interview Details – I filled out an application online and after a few months a friend of mine who was working there referred me to the hiring manager and I finally got a call for an interview. I showed up a few minutes late and was afraid they'd tell me to go home (the building was impossible to find!). But they didn't and the woman who interviewed me was so nice and professional. Professional, professional, professional. Those were the only words I could think of during and after the process. She asked me basic questions about my goals, why I liked Gap and how i would describe my dressing style. The interview lasted 15 minutes and the next day I got a call back asking when I could start.
Interview Question – What do you like doing most? View Answer
Negotiation Details – They did not dispute the amount I was asking for.
I applied online and interviewed at The Gap.
Interview Details – It wasn't as scary as i thought it was going to be. The first interview is done in a group, essentially they want to see if you will stand out with that group, how you contribute to the group and overall how you work in groups. The manager hosting the interview will bring out certain topics like what do you like about the company, why do you think your a good fit, where do you see yourself in 5 years..etc. If you make it past the first interview, you will than be asked to come back for the second interview which will be with the main manager. This will be a one-on-one interview that will cover pretty much what was covered in the first interview, but will focus more on yourself, your availability, your goals and your strengths and weaknesses.
Interview Question – you get about 5 minutes to put different women outfits together for different occasions, and than explain why you chose them. View Answer
Negotiation Details – it was simple, when they called me after to offer me the job they told me the salary they offered, and i accepted.
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The Gap in September 2013.
Interview Details – Applied online. 3 or 4 weeks later I get a call saying come in for an interview. It wasn't a group interview (thank God.) It didn't even feel like an interview. Very relaxed; felt as if I was talking to an old friend. The only question I was asked was "why do you want to work here." After that it was easy sailing. Started talking about the traffic. THE TRAFFIC! Was called back an hour after my first interview to come in for a second interview a few days later. Same routine. One question then laid back conversation. Called that Monday and offered me the position.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Gap in August 2013.
Interview Details – For me, I was in a group interview and luckily I really stood out during my interview due to the fact that I was the only blonde woman in my group. I just turned 18 and had no retail experience what so ever and this was my second chance at an interview after getting shot down at Zara. In the group she they wanted to know a lot about us and just customer situations like if someone asked you if the jeans were too tight or if it looked too tight how would you respond to that. I persnonally did my own research on the company and acknowledged that Gap mainly focuses on the basics or the bread and butter of what the company was made of: their jeans. And I just tried to seem super out going and show that I had a lot of energy because that's what Gap and really any employer wants, so I just made myself out to be really engaging with customers and giving them a great experience that will keep them coming back to your store.
Interview Question – I think the most difficult question I was asked was that very, "If something looked too tight on a costumer what would you do?" and I just said that I would offer to bring the next size up and ask them which one they feel more comfortable in but know that at the end of the day they're going to get whatever pants they want or neither regardless of your input so just do your best. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate really only because it was my first job and I had NO experience what so ever so I didn't feel entitled to it.
