Pros

I love the variety of worki get to do. Great work environment and incentive progams to earn extra cash for achieving sales goals and opening credit cards. Awesome discount at all brands of Gap, Inc.

Cons

The only thing I dislike is so much pressure to open credit cards. While they are important, I think the sales experience and sales goals are more important.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Our credit card is a great incentive to customers, but I would like to see more benefits to offer customers.

    Pros

    -discounts at BR, Old Navy, and GAP

    Cons

    -board folding!
    -not given enough hours sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to let their employees know how they are doing with their sales, etc. (monthly). Our old managers gave us weekly quizzes, which was good (we didn't get penalized if we did bad). They also need to be more fair with hours. The store managers only give us hours based on how many BRCs we open and how we do with sales. Other than that, everything is good.
