    I worked at The Gap part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The only perk is the Employee Discount. 50%-off at Gap, Banana Republic and Old Navy. As much as I hated working there I appreciated the cheap clothing.

    Cons

    The management team is incompetent. Way too micromanaging to make ANY employee happy. Insufficient training allows for employees to get in trouble for rule infractions they were not warned against. My interview was so misleading, the Store Manager was cheerful and smily bringing me to believe this was a joyful workplace. To my surprise, the woman NEVER smiled or even talked to hourly employee's during when in the work place. If I had known working for the GAP was going to be so stifling I would not have accepted the offer. There is no room for personality or minor creative freedom. I am extremely disappointed with my experience working for the GAP. I expected more from a company that puts up a great public face.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop breathing down the necks of every employee. Give the hourly people a chance. The smell of superiority wafting off the management team is enough to nauseate any body. Common curtsey goes a long way!!
