Gap

Former Employee - Sales Associate/Cashier in San Francisco, CA
Former Employee - Sales Associate/Cashier in San Francisco, CA

I worked at The Gap part-time (more than an year)

Pros

The discount was great. 40% off Gap and BR and 20% off Old Navy. Most of my co workers were cool to hang out with. Had a cool walkie talkie to reach other employees for help, and they always has my back. Very team oriented.

Cons

Manager did not train me at all. I was completely lost when he sent me to the cashier, until one of my co workers helped me get the hang of it. The hours were horrible and closing was the worst. Imagine a store with hundreds of unfolded clothes and having to fold it all after an 8 hour shift.

    I have been working at The Gap full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment, great teamwork approach, career development is great, training is the best and always available, ROWE is a great perk

    Cons

    work-life balance can be difficult, if leadership changes their mind it's expected to make changes regardless of the original plans that were set in place and if it doesn't work out, it ends up being something we did wrong

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more group outings to promote teamwork across all teams instead of immediate teams. there's no sense of true teamwork across brands.

    Current Employee - Operations Supervisor in Fishkill, NY

    I have been working at The Gap full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and great benefits

    Cons

    No work life balance. Work a lot of hours and there's no relief or care about the hours we work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop delegating all your work and be more a part of the team to help resolve issues. Stop using the excuse of this is development for you.
