    I worked at The Gap part-time

    Pros

    Where I worked this place barely had any hours available and the pay was low pretty much the minimum. The discount was the best

    Cons

    Never would want to work here unless it was corporate, working in stores is basically useless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was good but I found a new job just in time since the closed the store months later.

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

    Pros

    -great discount, 50% at The Gap and Banana Republic, 30% at Old Navy

    Cons

    -extremely over staffed
    -not enough hours due to so many employees
    -merchandise was frequently moved around, making it difficult to know where stuff was for a new person who doesn't get frequent shifts.
    -in store training was almost non-existant, I was taught how to check inventory in passing, nothing formal.
