    Great company to work for!!! They promote from within the company quite rapidly, if you're performance is up to par.

    I have been working at The Gap full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is a strong chance you would be promoted at the Gap, as they are a large corporation. Including Banana Republic and Old Navy retailers. Pleasant, but fast paced environment to work in.

    Cons

    There are no benefits given to part-time employees, which is unfortunate because the only way to attain full-time employment is to become a manager or be hired in as one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gap, Inc. is over-saturated with managers. There are so many managers that they begin to micro-manage everything. This type of management works in some environments, however, not at a International Retailer. Employees quit and become frustrated at the fact that someone is constantly standing over their shoulder delegating duties.

    Interview Details

    Gap conducted on the spot interviews at a job fair. It was surprising. They asked basic questions. They were friendly and professional despite conducting interviews in a gym. I received a call from them about a week later.

The ubiquitous clothing retailer Gap has been filling closets with jeans and khakis, T-shirts, and poplin since the Woodstock era. The firm, which operates about 3,300 stores worldwide, built its iconic casual brand on basics for men, women, and children, but over the years has expanded through the urban chic chain Banana Republic, budgeteer Old Navy, online-only retailer Piperlime, and Athleta, a purveyor of activewear. Other brand extensions include GapBody, GapKids, and babyGap; each also has its own online incarnation. All Gap clothing is private-label merchandise made... More
