Retail Sales Associate Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Gap (Salt Lake City, UT) in October 2016.

Interview

I applied on Monday morning and got a call that afternoon asking if I could attend an interview on Friday. I walked in about 5 minutes early. She only asked me a few questions, then asked me to put together an outfit for her to wear on a date. I picked out two outfits one for a fancy date, and one for a more casual date. Then she asked me to sell it to her. Afterwards she she took me into the back and told me more details about the job. Then she said would love to have me, but she just had to wait for my background check to come back. A few days later she called me telling me I had the job! I accepted, and am excited to start!

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Gap.

    Interview

    Very easy interview in a group setting with simple questions about team building and like questions. They basically want to know if you would work well with other team members. They also ask about certain clothing items and what they are in the online portion of the interview. It is really easy and it was my first job and I didn't need any retail experience. They trained okay but the training could be enhanced on the register and how to fold clothes etc.

    Interview

    I had 3 interviews which seemed a little excessive for a regular sales associate position. The interview was pretty standard questions about what you knew about the company and your style.

    Interview

    Applied to GAP GLENDALE GALLERIA through online application. Got called 3 weeks later for a group interview. I got there earlier than I was supposed to and gained a one-on-one interview for being early. The manager that interviewed me was really laid back and easy to talk to, wasn't like a regular interview. After the manager told me to call back 3 days later if I didn't here from him because he was willing to offer me a job but needed to talk to the other manager first in order to approve. I called back in 3 days and was told I'd need to go to a second interview. Later that day the other manager called and asked if I was willing to join and when there would be orientation.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gap (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Group interview with myself and 3 other people, not to be crude but I truly felt as though I was the best candidate for the position out of the group. The interviewer was very nice and genuinely seemed interested in me in particular but also in this other girl, who it seemed like she might have known her personally, or could see herself getting along with her as a friend. (i'm assuming that girl was the one chosen). She had tattoo's, cleavage popping out, and very poor grammar, and you could tell she had an attitude. She also hardly smiled, I told her she should smile and her response was "im not even worried, i know i got this job". Hence why I think she knew the interviewer . As you can tell, i REALLY wanted this job, and was really bummed, lol. Anyway, interviewer asked questions about what we would do in this/that situation, our personalities, our best qualities, and then we did a scenario where we put together an outfit in 5 minutes and explained why we picked it. So there you go.

    Interview

    I first applied online in May 2015. I was contacted by the GM of my store two weeks later. I went into the store a few days later for my first interview which was a panel interview. They make it more of a conversation than an interview, and it's very casual. A week later I got a call for a second interview 1:1 and I received an offer on the spot.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gap (Cincinnati, OH) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was very relaxed with the hiring manager at the store location. The manager asked a series of questions and made me feel extremely comfortable. Most of the questions were just basic ones that are pretty typical of any job, strengths, weaknesses, customer service skills, etc. Asked some more out of the box questions, like what is your favorite color and why?
