I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Gap in May 2012.
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.

Interview Details – Went for a group interview at the Gap store I applied to. We met in the mall where the store was, at a little seating area in the hallway. There was me and three other applicants. Two managers asked us questions off of a printed off list that they had (the questions were pretty standard) and gave us each a chance to answer each question. One manager wrote down the answers. They called me about 30 mn. after the interview and offered me the job. They hired one other person from that interview.
Interview Question – They were all pretty standard/easy. One girl mentioned that she sometimes felt like she had to step in for her current manager and they didn't seem to like that answer too much Answer Question

Interview Details – Very swiftly. We had a group interview outside in the cold but the hiring manager was really fun, definitely helped calming everyone's nerves. Only 3 or 4 questions job related. When the interview was over we met the General Manager. After that, it probably took around 2 weeks to receive a call, once I received the call it only took a couple of days and I started working.
