    Current Employee - Customer Experience Expert in Pasadena, CA

    I have been working at The Gap part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fun incentives for in-store employees (concert tickets, point redemption for items, etc). Great corporate mission and inclusive culture, which reflects from the corporate level down to the stores.

    Cons

    It's retail, so there's that. Training programs for entry-level management often felt like a general waste of time and completely inefficient. A lot of gratuitous shifting around of in-store leadership titles (e.g. keyholder to "customer experience expert").
