Pros

I really appreciated the amount of training they provided to their store managers and sales associates. They trained the teams very well on customer service and selling skills. Also they provided a good amount of product knowledge to support the ability to sell the product.

Cons

6 different District Managers in 5 years! There were some benefits to this though as the DMs that weren't very strong didn't last long, and I was able to learn something from each of their different management styles, but it made it challenging for long term growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't overlook strong, consistent performers.

    Pros

    Half off a certain number of clothes a month. Decent discount otherwise. Positive coworkers.

    Cons

    Usual retail woes (occasional crazy customers, return fraud, constantly rebuilding clothing displays).

    Having to push "GAP Cards"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Requiring a quota of credit card sign ups encourages predatory and dishonest sales tactics among a constantly dimishing pool of customers (a person can only get a card once so no repeat sign ups possible)

    Pros

    Everyday is the same routine when entering. You must clock in and then go straight to your LOD. here they will let you know what sales and promotions are going on and what is our goal by the end of the day. Either opening a specific amount of gap cards and how much money we have to make.

    Co workers are great to get along with. Managers are very respectable people since they know how your working. The discount is AWESOME! Plus you get a discount at Banana Republic & Old Navy

    Cons

    The pressure to open gap cards. During holidays, it gets super messy and crazy. Some customers aren't too nice. After holidays, hours are cut.
