    I applied online and received a call a month later to set up an interview for the next day. The interviewer was friendly and it was fairly straightforward. The interview lasted about 15 minutes and he said that I would hear back within 3 days.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Banana Republic.

    Interview

    I initially looked on the Gap careers website to see what openings were available in my area. I chose a location I wanted to apply to and filled out the application. Part of the application was a test to see if I paid attention to details and had good fashion sense. It involved picking the best articles to match an outfit or determining how many "mistakes" were on a table of merchandise that was sloppily arranged.

    A week or so later I got a call from one of the managers inviting me in for an interview. I was working another job at the time (with plans of quitting) and they were very flexible in getting me in on one of my days off. They first asked a lot of really odd questions using language that the interviewer didn't seem very comfortable with (a lot of unnecessarily big words--as a writer I learned that it's best to use simple words when possible) and which sometimes caused me to have to ask for clarification.

    I must have answered them correctly, because the next day I had a call asking me to come back and meet with the store manager. I gave up my other day off that week and had a much more informal chat where the manager basically indicated that I had the job (before actually telling me I had the job). We talked about my availability and all that jazz. And that was it.

    They claimed they did a background check, but I don't think they did (my last background check took several weeks for some reason, even though there was nothing on it). They also said my references checked out, which was interesting because I didn't put any. I only put my employment history.

    Interview

    After submitting an online application you will be contacted for a brief phone interview if you appear to meet the base requirements for the position. During the phone call they will ask questions about previous work experience and availability. If you meet those needs they will schedule you for a face to face interview at the store. You may be required to speak with both the hiring manager as well as the general manager.

    Initial communications about the specifics of the job and the expectations were good. Two Interviews, one phone and one in person. Was promoted from within, something that happens quite regularly as turnover is very high.
