Retail Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
Declined Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Gap (Portland, OR) in March 2014.

Interview

Similar to most (?) jobs of this level, at larger corporations, they'll interview you in groups. I wore all GAP to the interview, which wasn't that difficult since I already frequented the place, and that seemed to make them happy. After answering a few standard questions, we were asked to see what times we were available at.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Gap (Bronx, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    My gap is located a few blocks away from the school that I attended a few years ago. During my last year in high school I walked in and asked them if they were hiring to which they responded that they were, and they told me to fill out an application online. I filled out the application, and they never really got back to me so I started to go in one or twice a week and remind them that I'm still looking for the position. Eventually (after a couple of months) I got an interview and a week later I was offered the position.

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!
