    It was a 4 step process starting with submitting my application on their website then setting up a brief phone interview that lasted 30 minutes (typical behavior questions, interests, hobbies, why gap, etc), then I had to create a presentation/project for them and present it over Skype a week later, then I was flown out to San Francisco about two weeks later for two days of interviews/meet and greets/activities, then I was notified later that week once I got home.

    Rotational Management Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Gap (San Francisco, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview, after taking personality and numerical tests online, after submitting online application.

    First, I applied online.

    The next day I got an email inviting me to take online tests.

    The personality test gives you three phrases (for example, I am competitive, I think people are trustworthy, I think about the future). You have to choose which phrase is MOST like you, and which phrase is LEAST like you (and you leave one phrase without an answer). There are 100 of these (actually, they label it as 50, but on each page, they give you two sets of threes [if that makes sense]).

    The numerical test gives you graphs and numbers and asks you questions that you generally have to calculate. There are I think 18 questions in 17 minutes.

    After taking those, the next day I got an email inviting me to schedule the phone interview.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Gap (San Francisco, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Great interview, very casual and easy. As long as you are normal they will hire you due to high turn over. Don't expect the interview to be held in the office. It wasn't entirely professional but the interviewer was nice and it is best if it's your first job. Don't worry too much and relax and you will be fine.

    Product Manager Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Gap (San Francisco, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I had a couple of phone screens and then was called on -site where i had 5 interviews in groups of 2. Which means i met over 10 people.
    The last group walked me out but later i got a call from the recruiter that i had one more interview. Since i had already left, they scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager's boss.
    All went well, but then they went dark. No one from GAP contacted me for 3 weeks. I wrote emails to them every week, but no response.
    After my 4th email which is about 4 weeks after the interview, the recruiter emailed me that they have changed the job description and didn't need a PM anymore.

    Global Mobility Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gap (San Francisco, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was invited for a phone screen. The recruiter was very nice and took the time to introduce herself, explain more about the company, the position and the team. this really helped to lower my stress level, like it was not "Hello, how are you, tell me about yourself". The questions were your basic interview questions + questions about how my past experience would work for this position + situational questions. I did not get an offer and recruiter took the time to give me feedback and answer my questions which is really great!
