    I have been working at The Gap part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Perfect first job. Short shifts, awesome if you have great customer service skills. Loved the quarterly meetings, and felt like a citizen of Planet Gap! Was happy and excited to go to work every day. Very attainable credit card goals, lots of opportunities to maintain relationships with your managers and supervisors.

    Cons

    Cleaning all the mirrors in the dressing rooms is tough, but a good workout for your arms!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be wishy-washy! Your employees normally love working, so don't just focus on the negative. Celebrate successes as well!
