    Assistant Merchandiser Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Gap (San Francisco, CA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I completed Gap Inc's Retail Merchandise Program ("RMP"), which I highly recommend, I had a very positive experience with the program. Upon completing RMP, they set up a few interviews for different positions available. There were one or two interviews for each, usually a 2 on 1 and sometimes also a 1 on 1 with a VP. Some were really relaxed, others had a few tough questions. I think the most important thing is to show your interest in the position/team/product, and to come prepared with thoughts on the business (strengths, competitors, market opportunities)

    Interview Questions

    • What's something we could be doing better? Who do you think is our biggest competitor?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Gap (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I was recruited from my campus. So there was an initial one-to-one interview. They also had a group interview with other candidates from my college. When you make it past the those interviews, they fly you out to headquarters in San Francisco for another evaluation. It's rigorous, but they try to bring together a highly qualified group of people.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gap (San Francisco, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Had a one on one interview on the phone, later had a presentation. Overall was good and everyone was very nice, had some difficult questions, but they seem to care about your thought process more than your specific industry knowledge. There are specific industry questions, but even with knowing very little about them, made it to the next round. Overall seems to be a great company.
