Pros

Gap was a really great company from the outside and had strong ties with their community and good incentives working for them. Also, the discount was dangerous because it was so good.

Cons

Store management was horrible. Manager had favorites and it showed because those were the people advancing. One mistake and it jeopardized everything and was unforgivable. Little to no hours, especially if you were going to school or had other priorities in life. Managers openly talked about sales associates to other workers and gossip and trash talk was rampant. Once they caught wind that I was leaving, the schedule was changed and I wasn't notified until a co-worker told me after the fact that I was due in. It was too late, I was already terminated. Very shady business practices. Very few good managers. The good ones are switched around to different stores.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management needs to be more involved with store management and know the practices are not ideal and very unfair.
