I worked at The Gap full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

great store/brand discounts
good stock plan

Cons

no career advancement support within company from department leaders.
negligent on taking appropriate action regarding misconduct between employees.
cannot trust peers.
very cliquish.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would say to constantly keep your ears and eyes open because all is not what it seems. Support the growth of employees in department or to move cross-functionally to better their careers and interests. Take an ethical and serious stand regarding situations that are brought to your attention regarding unjust treatment.

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

    Pros

    The variety of people that shop at the gap makes your day go bye fairly quick. Wearing the clothes that you get for discounted prices is fun also. When I come to work I am happy because everyone is treated fairly.

    Cons

    There aren't really any cons to working at the gap. The pay is good every two weeks and I love the discounts! I use to work a mc donalds in the city and they only gave me a discount for my break meal, meaning I had to pay full price even on my day off. That's why I am thankful for the gap!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work

    Pros

    the gap is a workplace that can potentially pay very well and if in the right store your potential to bonus is huge

    Cons

    Gaps vision is lacking clarity control and execution. there are limited individuals that can actually teach what success looks like therefor it is more likely to walk into the company and burn out from the inability of leaders to to really understand execution

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get into the stores and do a comprehensive look at what the General Managers are actually doing. Evaluate the competency of leaders and see what results are there and whos behind the success or whos really behind the failures. If failure is consistent then what your store managers are telling you is probably not true.
