Solid company with "on the fly" ability to react to the business to maintain share.

I have been working at The Gap full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Very tenured leadership who have the recipe for success, even in a down economy. Community involvement is incredible. And the ability to work in the office or work a day from home is always welcomed.

Cons

Quality of life suffers during the worse downturns. Its expected, but tough sometimes. Growth into China may impact leadership's success of US if left unchecked.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep moving forward globally but don't forget to listen to manager level needs and desires to share talent elsewhere in the company.

    I worked at The Gap full-time

    Pros

    There is always a postiive outlook. Creativity was welcomed. Personality was welcomed. Always forward thinking and ahead of trends.

    Cons

    Workload for shipment and floorsets are not streamlined. Too many floorsets per season. Focus on what the customers want for products depending on specific markets. There were alot of extravagant pieces in all collections. Those pieces always went to clearance in my market. Not the best especially when they are closing stores.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good pay, opportunity for getting a raise, rewards program, flexible hours, discounts at gap, gap outlet, old navy, and banana republic. It's definitely a good place to work especially for someone going to school because they have flexible hours. We also do community service type stuff a couple times a year for different organizations which is really cool.

    Cons

    Honestly I can't think of any cons. It's a lot better place to work than a lot of other beginner jobs. Maybe just too many new hires constantly which makes it a lot more work for those who've been there longer.
