    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Gap (London, England (UK)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Handed a CV into my local store and was rung at a later date to arrange an interview at the store. I later found out it is common practice for the non-flagship Gap stores to keep hold of all CVs they receive, and refer to them when they need to recruit new staff.

    Interview Questions

    • Quite generic interview questions asking about situations where you've solved a problem, helped someone out etc. You will often be given a scenario for a customer and asked to come up with suggestions for an outfit within a set time limit, or spend some time working with another member of staff. It is good to go in with a little knowledge about the story behind the company too, managers appreciate this extra research even if just for a basic role.   Answer Question
