    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gap.

    Interview

    Basic small group interview. Got called for an interview 2 days after applying. Straight forward quick interview, if you have previous retail experience it is much easier to get hired. If it is closer to holiday times, a very high chance of getting hired.

    Rotational Management Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Gap.

    Interview

    Gap’s recruiting process is extremely lengthy and unnecessary - they start with a really long assessment. Then first round is a phone screen - the lady was very nice for the phone screen. For round two, they make you do a project where you create your own brand. I spent hours on my project but my interviewer did not seem impressed or seemed to care. She was very rude. Last round, which I didn’t get, is assessment day at their headquarters.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Gap (Dallas, TX) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and a few days later I got a call asking for an interview the next day. They said it was going to be a group interview but when I arrived the man who was going to interview me was out. Another woman interviewed me but it was one on one. She was very nice and told me about herself, asked me about myself, then told me about the company. She asked me three questions then asked if I had any questions for her. It was very laid back and I felt really comfortable. They said they'd call in the next two days if I got the job. It actually took four days but I got an offer.

    Seasonal Stock Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gap (Huntersville, NC) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, within a week or two received a call asking between two group interview dates, had it today with about five other girls. It was probably around ten questions or so, some a little more difficult than others and we went down the line, but starting with someone else each time. At the end we were asked for numbers and availability and that we would be called by next week, but I already received an email saying after reviewing my application, based on my strengths they don't think this job is the right fit, but I'm welcome to keep applying on their site for other jobs. But at least they notified me, a lot of jobs I've applied for you never hear back from them again even if they say they will whether you were accepted or not unless you call yourself. This may not be the best job for first time seekers like me or they may need more better experience from you. I added some questions but I can't remember them all.

Group interviews are always tricky because you never know exactly what you are missing or what is needed to stand out. After its over you'll either get a email or call back if they want you, and if not you usual get a email back that same day. Stating that they have moved forward and to applied for other positions and different locations.
