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

Pros

Very busy and challenging, being in the IT environment of this high volume retail company's eCommerce group. A lot of changes occur and it is exciting as different teams work to make each one happen (small or large). One can learn a lot and it is a good place to work. Leadership is very conscious of work/life balance for its employees.

Cons

One can get caught in this ever changing environment and lose focus. Focusing and staying on track is a must to be successful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to value the great (human) resources that are there.

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

    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)
