Pros

I 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.

Cons

I 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 ManagementAdvice

Keep 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.

    Pros

    great discount, 50% off full price items.
    fun atmosphere to work in
    the customers are great
    the company is an american icon

    Cons

    the pay is very low, and raises happen once a year and are generally low too.
    very few hours given to to associates, some stores aren't even allowed to have full time associates
    even with the 50% off discount, getting only 8 hours a week doesn't really help pay for the clothes
    employs way too many associates at once.
    college town, lots of turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    tend to hire too many people who just don't seem interested in being there.
    better communication of tasks; lots of things left unfinished

    Disapproves of CEO
