    I have been working at The Gap as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Management is generally competent and energetic. Infrastructure and projects managed relatively well with little politics or finger-pointing. Workload is smooth with little need to work nights and weekends.

    Cons

    Full-time jobs are hard to come by, and most "employees" are contractors with no perks or benefits. Given the tech boom in the bay area over the last few years, I'm not sure how they expect to keep top performers.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Gap.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Recruiter contacted me within a couple of weeks to ask basic questions about my background and salary expectations. Had a phone interview with the hiring manager. Had an onsite interview a week after. Was told I would hear from them regarding next steps in a couple of weeks. 2 months later, and nothing. I reached out to the recruiter a couple of times, but never heard back from her. I have heard that this is normal. The Gap is known for their awful recruiting team.

Other brand extensions include GapBody, GapKids, and babyGap; each also has its own online incarnation. All Gap clothing is private-label merchandise made... More
