Pros

Working at the Gap gives you an appreciation for the customer-centered atmosphere, and at the same time expressing a fondness for clothing and style. A positive and energetic company to start in or grow your appreciation in the clothing industry.

Cons

Working at the Gap can be repetitive due to the routine things that you are expected to complete. It has very little room for you to move up in the company.

    I worked at The Gap full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Corporate Values are great, ideas are innovative, great line of product

    Cons

    Management at store level not "monitored" closely enough to promote corporate values/ consequently store values may differ / not enough focus on individual growth / difficult to move forward in career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have more involvement with employees at the store level from the regional , corporate, and district level to negate favoritism at store level and to develop individual talents with fair monetary reward for jobs well done

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

    Pros

    Flexibility, lenience towards lateness and slip-ups; fun attitude of staff

    Cons

    High company standards that almost seem unreal. Unprofessional staff, though fun at times, i think forget that they are at work and don't know what is appropriate to talk about at work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little harsher on your floor employees that aren't doing anything and making the job harder for others.
