    I worked at The Gap as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Recognition for performance. Set individual and team goals. Have a great social responsibility policy. Encourage community involvement. Involved in charity.

    Cons

    Pay for merchandise handlers is low compared to the effort and responsibilities expected of the employees. However, it is competitive wage standards for similar work in the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should better explain the importance of Productivity to it's labor. I do believe that people will work smarter if they know why they should.
