    Pros

    A lot of hours, fast pace, great co-workers, flexible scheduling, great pay, amazing discounts, no strict dress code

    Cons

    Getting people to sign up for Gap credit cards is a huge deal, but I worked at the flagship in San Francisco and it's really difficult because of the amount of foreign tourists.

    I worked at The Gap part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great team, friendly, and understanding; They offer great discounts up to 50%. The mangers are all really upbeat and friendly, they also appreciate a good worker when they see one. Promotions are given easily if one works for it. Very understanding in taking a day off or switching shifts, and coming in late is acceptable from time to time if calling ahead.

    Cons

    Gap cards are somewhat of a basis on the amount of hours you get, and long hours in closing shifts with folding and organizing the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay doing what you do.

    Pros

    I have worked here since end of high school and cannot see myself having any other part time job! Even now in my career I find time to put hours in at my store. Great clothing discount, flexible hours, and people who truly have a passion for the brand.

    Cons

    Can be hard to work holidays away from family - but that is the life of retails
