I worked at The Gap

Pros

- there was a great discount
- you get to meet a lot of really nice people
- high level of training (the company has started a leadership training program for new supervisors and managers that gives them an overview of the company and its values and expectations)
- if you work full-time, the health benefits are definitely superior to a lot of other companies

Cons

- schedule is different from week to week and I've heard that now that employees get their schedules by email, sometimes they don't now what they are working for the next week until the Friday before.
- underpaid in comparison to other companies with the same workload

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't hire out of desperation. Make sure that you take the time to find the right people.

    Pros

    The people and health benefits. I have worked for the company for 5 1/2 years and have always had strong partnerships with all of the people I have worked with. The new president of Old Navy seems to have a good head on his shoulders and he truly cares about the people working here. The former president was a joke. She killed our business.

    Cons

    Constant change of leadership and the "flattening out" of the organization has been crazy. So much change really doesn't allow the teams to run their business. Upper level management needs to listen first then act.

    Pros

    good work life balance
    decent benefits
    decent merch discount

    Cons

    RMP program develops elitist attitudes. RMPs tend to get promoted faster.
    meritocracy is non existant. promotions are about who you know, not what you do.
