Would work there again :)

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Los Gatos, CA

I worked at The Gap

ProsI liked working at the gap because if you were friendly and good with Gap Card sales they couldn't say enough possitive things about you. It is a very easy job for a Highschool student to do and also stay in school full time. The discounts are also great and the people I worked with were very friendly. It was nice knowing what was expected of you each and every day and being able to achieve your best at it.

ConsI know that some people struggled with Gap card sales and this made them have a harder time working there. I personally found that if you related with the customer and gave them that one on one attention that they desired, then they would usually get a Gap Card from you if they didn't have one already. Some of the more shy employees struggled with this though and consequently prevented themselves from getting promoted.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep giving little rewards to the employees that are excelling. This really motivated me to do well, and also encourage/ help the ones who are struggling.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
