A rollercoaster ride. When it's good, it's great. When its not...

General Manager (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

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

ProsChallenging, offers solid growth opportunities, filled with inspiring, dedicated employees focused on teamwork, great benefits, solid training, well organized systems with clear policies and procedures, pays well.

ConsLong hours, poor support from upper management, limited payroll resources, lacks support from the human resources department, limits its employees ability to properly perform their jobs, the standards expected by the company lacks consistency across all positions.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis may be specific to the San Francisco Region (Corporate HQ), but politics often gets in the way of job performance. The higher standard is worthy of being lived up to, but it needs to be clearly communicated and the appropriate level of support should be provided to achieve it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
