Pros

It is not difficult to get hired at The Gap, you don't need to have much prior job experience. They provide training on site and the work is not too labor intensive, unless there is a major sale. It allows you to interact with a lot of people, which can be a good or bad thing. At least in my experience, my co-workers are friendly and easy going.

Cons

The pay is not great, entry level wages. You do get an employee discount but The Gap doesn't have great clothes.

Advice to Management

Communicate more with the staff.

    Pros

    Great employee discount and flexible hours. And since this is a well-known and established retailer working here looks good on a resume. There is also room for advancement within the company as well and they have an excellent training program if you are looking to climb the corporate ladder. Payscale could use some improvement however. Overall, good place to work and since the hours are flexible it's great for students as well as people just starting out in their career. I would definitely recommend employment at the Gap for people who want to work for a well known, established retailer.

    Cons

    Annoying customers who always think they are right.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with lower level management.
