    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Wembley, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wembley, England
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at The Gap in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    My experience when interviewing for the gap was great. The Hiring manager was warm, friendly and welcoming. I was asked fun questions about fashion about my personality and to put together outfits. Overall the team seemed energetic, positive, and a young group working together to reach targets. As a graduate student looking for a part time job it was definitely a positive place to learn some different skills and have fun as well!

    Interview Questions
    • There was not really a difficult question. The most surprising task was to put together an outfit for a specific person and event.   View Answer

    Senior Merchandise Planner Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  London, England

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at The Gap.

    Interview Details

    Had an interview with an agency and then a second interview at Berkeley Square with a Director. I got through to the third round for a final interview.

    On the morning of the interview I drove up to attend. My car caught fire on the motorway whilst driving. I was pulled out of the car by fire brigade and police, whilst it burned.

    Covered in soot and smoke and slightly distressed, having narrowly escaped and having an urge to hold my 16 week old baby, oh, and having no transport to continue the journey - I called HR at Gap to let them know.

    Interview Questions
    • Their response to my request to reschedule was - turn up today, or that's it, you are out of the process. They could hear the motorway and the sirens but wouldn't budge an inch.   View Answer

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  City of London, England

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at The Gap in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is generally three rounds, where first one is about telephonic interview. They ask you pretty generic questions, for me I thought they just called in to know if I spoke English well or not. Once that was done, they asked me to come to Gap for a Group discussion which is then succeeded by a 1:1 or sometimes 2:1 with manager(s).

    They do not leave you much room for negotiation, but then at this position, I dont think you need to negotiate much at all.

    Initially I was interview by the scheduling manager. He asked a few questions about my prior experience. As well as a few situational questions. It was very lax and I wore clothes that would be appropriate for working there. He offered me a hourly wage of $10.

    The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The Gap in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process was ridiculously long, over a month with three separate interviews all encompassing the same questions. Towards the end I almost just accepted a different offer from another company because I was tired of waiting on them.

    I interviewed in-person - interviewed at The Gap.

    Interview Details

    The interview was a very pleasant experience! The manager was very personable while asking questions to find out my work experience and what my expectations were for this job. He was also looking for what positive attributes that my former experience could add to this stores team. I feel that is very important to know, as a manager. He was actually building his team to be successful, by adding diversity in all areas of the staff! GREAT MANAGER!!! KNOWS HIS STUFF AND LEADS BY EXAMPLE!!!

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at The Gap in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a call the next day to set up an interview. The call was confusing because she asked me about my availability and even though I told her she was still confused on the hours that I could work. When it was time for the interview, she asked a lot of the basic questions. This was my 1st ever interview and I was kind of surprised when she made me go out on the floor and pretend to help people out. After the interview was done, she said that she would call the next day, but never did.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at The Gap in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Group panel with about 8-9 others and the manager asks you questions about why you chose working for Gap, what do you like best about the clothes. It's a first come first serve answer approach but it was best if you showed immediate interest in answering instead of being the last and let everyone else answer before you.

    • Giving a good sales pitch for advertising what you were wearing in the interview.   Answer Question
