It's always hard to know what to expect when going in for that interview -- and preparation can make all the difference. What is the interview process like at Gap?

Any advice on striking the right note?

I interviewed for Banana Republic which is under the GAP. It was a group interview with about 8 to 9 other candidates. The interviewer asked us all questions like name some examples of customer service you have performed, name an example when you were criticized for something..and so on. Typical interview questions like, why do u want to work here? What can you bring to BR.

If you are confident and can answer the questions, you can make it. Speak out and ask questions, make yourself stand out from the group and you will be fine. And dress up from the interview, a few people had jeans on. BR had a dresscode if your hired, slacks/dress pants..etc.

I had an interview with the Gap. They asked me why I would be an asset to their company, why I wanted to work for them versus somewhere else, what I like/dislike about my current job, if I'd ever had a positive/negative customer service experience and to describe it, if I've ever known of a colleague to shoplift or dealt with shoplifting, theft, discount abuse and about the experience, about my current job, to describe a situation where I was multitasking in a high stress environment and how I dealt with it, about availability and to describe what kind of customer service I like to receive when I walk into a store. I asked about pay and benefits for part time employment and they said it is roughly $9/hr here-but cost of living is high here- you get several purchases a month at 50% off and 30% off at partner stores like Banana Republic and Old Navy. At Gap you do not work on commission....

A disappointed customer in Atlanta, Georgia

I had an interview experience for a position in IT Sourcing. After the first round with HR, I felt good and looked forward to the phone call from the hiring manager. She didn't call at the agreed time. HR apologized later and set up another time. The hiring manager didn't call 2nd time. HR called the following week and apologized and set up the 3rd time. I started to wondering if I'm going to report to a manager who played no-show twice. Don't they know that they represent the company before a customer, who happens to be an interviewee?Ok, she called me 10 minutes after the agreed interview time. The first question was if HP told me that this position is for a software sourcing only position. I said now I know from you the first time. Although I represent myself experienced in both hardware and software sourcing, she sounded uninterested and looking only for someone has years' of dedicated software sourcing background. Sorry, your HR didn't send the clear msg. and both sides felt carrying on the talk just for being professional. Before the call ended, I asked her if Gap provides the opportunity that people can develop into different areas. She started to bragging how she worked in stores, material purchasing, and other positions, and how she was just started the IT sourcing two years ago. Hey, she's barely qualified for her own position based on the requirement given to me 10 minutes ago.

I feel I won't be happy to report to such a personality even if I got the offer. To me, Gap just sounds like another manufacturing company which happens to push the clothing volume. What surprised the most is the lack of awareness that their candidates are very likely to be their customers. Two no shows and 10 minutes late finally, hey, how would a customer feel?

Negative experience with Gap. First interview very unprofessional. Alot interruptions. Second interview went well was told I would be getting a call the next day to get offered a position an scheduling. Two days pass no call. I call them only for them to say we won't be using you we pursued other candidates. This was in canton oh. How rude of them.
