    Pros

    The people, environment, and the employee discount are all amazing. There is a great service minded culture here and I couldn't ask for a better place to work.

    Cons

    As an associate, it can be difficult to accept being cut early due to budget constraints. It's also a bit difficult to move up within the company as the leadership team and the district manager obviously prefer promoting current leaders than promoting brand ambassadors.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the current talent pipeline. You never know which of your brand ambassadors might be the key to your leadership teams success.

    Pros

    Well paying job, and employee discount on all gap stores.

    Cons

    Having to sell credit cards

    Advice to Management

    Stop making the credit card thing such a big deal, it makes the general managers not pleasurable to work with.
