I have been working at The Gap

Pros

People are young and intelligent
Management will promote and nurture those who are willing to work and aiming for advancement
Great company culture with designated monthly team fun events
Discount on clothing
Environmentally conscious work facilities

Cons

Management changes tune every few months and can't seem to give consistent guidance which I believe is due to poor sales results
Brands seems to be struggling with an identity crisis and losing market share
Constant changes with management and slow operating systems make working tedious and stressful

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have more trust towards the people doing their jobs and think twice before making changes

    Pros

    Very good at developing their people.
    Amazing tools and resources available.
    Very open about opportunities for advancement and about availability to transfer to other stores.
    Promotes from within.
    Great discount.
    Fun contest.

    Cons

    LONG hours!
    I worked in recruiting; pay in the field is better for people getting hired from outside the company.

    I worked at The Gap

    Pros

    I was proud to work there..Quality of the merchandise was really good and I was glad to sell it to customers.

    Cons

    The managers would too much emphasis on getting Gap Credit Cards and not much attention was given to recognising good salesperson skills. Different managers would ask for different chores...one would ask to make sure the store looks perfect and the other would ask to make sure to sell and get as many gap cards as possible without maintaining the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont put too much emphasis on the gap cards and appreciate hard work even when it doesnt have to do anything with getting the most gap cards.
