About Gap, Inc.
Gap Inc. is a leading global specialty retailer offering clothing, accessories, and personal care products for men, women, children, and babies under the Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Piperlime, and Athleta brands.
So, let's talk about the "extras" you get when you join our team. We give employees many choices so they can customize an overall benefits plan that fits them as well as their spouses, domestic partners, children and other dependents.
Below is a summary of some of the key benefits we offer.
Get Healthy, Stay Well
We cover medical for full-time benefits eligible employees as well as dental and vision, life and disability insurance, and private counseling resources. On-site health and wellness clinics, Weight Watchers memberships and discounts to local gyms are just a few other ways we help employees feel their best.
We provide access to unsubsidized health care options for eligible part time employees through a program called National Health Access.
Get in the Money
We want to make it easier for employees to meet their financial goals. Our 401(k) plan provides a company match for contributions up to 4 percent of an employee's pay. You can invest in the company through our Employee Stock Purchase Plan, or use the Home Mortgage programs to buy a home.
Tuition Reimbursement and Career Development
We want our employees to grow with us, so we offer tuition reimbursement for approved work-related courses for full-time employees. We have opportunities for employees to learn and develop at any time during their career through online, classroom and on-the-job training.
Not surprisingly, our most popular perk is a generous merchandise discount for Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy and Outlet, with occasional discounts at Piperlime and Athleta; available to all full- and part-time employees.
Take time when you need it. Our Paid Time Off – one of the most competitive offerings in our industry – provides 20 to 35 days to use toward vacation, personal time, or illness. That's in addition to seven paid holidays per year. We have a generous Leave of Absence program that allows employees to take time off for a number of personal situations, as well as a flexible work arrangement plan for employees who need to temporarily reduce their work schedule.
Starting a family? Need time for adjustment with a new family member? New parents can ease the transition through our Phase Out/Phase Back program. We also offer Adoption Assistance Reimbursement of up to $2,000 per child. And we throw in an online discount offering from babyGap, too.
Who doesn't love a great deal? Gap Inc. partners with dozens of familiar brands and organizations to offer all Gap Inc. U.S. employees access to great discounts. Buy a discounted Apple or Dell computer. Send a bouquet of roses at 15 percent off. Or take the family on a fun vacation to California's LEGOLAND. We have a long list of other great discounts for Gap Inc. employees.
Rewarding Community Service
When you give, we give too. Through "Take Five," exempt headquarter employees can take up to five hours a month to volunteer. If you volunteer 10 hours for one nonprofit in a calendar year, "Money for Time" chips in $100 to the organization. And "Gap Giving" matches your contribution to eligible nonprofits.
Our philosophy is pretty simple: customers, creativity, doing what's right and delivering results. Together, we call it "Wear your passion." And it's the perfect match for the kind of people we attract — as both employees and customers.
"Wear your passion" brings together four concepts that are part of our legacy and at the core of our work.
Think: customers first
We make decisions with our customers in mind. We connect with our stores and create the quality our customers value and expect.
We think big, take risks and solve problems. We challenge the status quo and always look for new ideas and ways of working.
Do: what’s right
We believe that how we do business is as important as what we do. We act with integrity, and we give back to the communities in which we do business.
We deliver the best result possible – we're committed to taking responsibility, setting priorities and meeting our goals.
Our culture, based on these principles, pays tribute to our history and prepares us for the exciting opportunities ahead.
As a global company, we know that appreciating and understanding the diversity of our customers, employees and partners around the world helps make us successful. We value the diversity of thought, experience and perspectives of our customers.
Embracing diversity stimulates innovation in our products and helps us improve our store experience. That enables us to create an inviting and inclusive place to work and to shop.
We maintain our commitment to diversity with workplace policies that ensure we do what's right, and treat our customers – and each other – with integrity and respect.
Our commitment to diversity is reinforced by workplace policies that are essential to how we do business.

All employment decisions are made without regard to race, color, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, marital status, pregnancy, national origin/ancestry, citizenship, physical/mental disabilities, military status or any other basis prohibited by law.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Old Navy (New York, NY).
Phone interview briefly describing yourself, mentioning your availability, etc. In store group interview in which you choose an outfit pertaining to a given scenario with the Service and Training Manager leading it. This is usually the person who you had the initial 1:1 phone interview with. Final interview with Store Manager. Usually 1:1. Usually covers availability, questions such as what makes you so special to work here over all the other candidates? Stuff like that. But usually, if you've made it this far, it's very likely you will be getting hired after this interview.
