    Pros

    The Gap was a great place to learn about customer service and selling. The people are a plus everyone from mgmt to sales associates were super nice and approachable, felt like family.

    Cons

    Favortism is a big deal. People are promoted from witihin but its only because they like you.
    Sometimes GC expections are extremely unrealistic.

    Pros

    -Great merchandise discounts
    -flexible shifts
    -fun and relaxed ambient
    -you meet and make great friends
    -a yearly evaluation may lead to a better salary... that translates to a few cents more per hour
    -they try not to bore you so you'll work in all positions available... cashier, fitting room, sales floor, etc.

    Cons

    -Retail is retail...no matter where you work, so you'll get the usual rude clients.
    -Management may not acknowledge your strengths... that could be frustrating.
    -Favoritism...if management like some people more they will get more hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Don't pamper your favorite employee... try to be equal with everyone
    -Acknowledge team and solo strengths
