    Pros

    Corporate was willing to be flexable with our store and our specific needs.

    Like most retail, poor training.

    I know training is a hassle but corporate gives you hours for it, use them.

    I worked at Gap part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic employee discount, friendly and outgoing co-workers & management, leniency in switching/canceling shifts if emergencies or other obstacles come up.

    Cons

    Erratic and random scheduling, including minimal work hours and on-call shifts (with part-time), making it very difficult to keep routine in personal life. There's also extreme pressure from managers on associates to open Gap Cards, as if that's the only qualifier of your value as an employee. Customers of this store also tend to be more impolite than average.

    Advice to Management

    Make improvements to the scheduling system, and allow workers to be compensated if they show up for work but are sent home (due to them no longer being needed). Also, perhaps be a little less forceful about Gap Card applications.

    Cut my hours to literally 4 hours a week so I can quit.

    Give dates needed for seasonal employees.

    I worked at Gap part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    50% off discount on gap brand also good discounts for old navy, banana republic! I loved working for Gap, such an awesome company and co workers are nice and fun to be around!

    Cons

    Sometimes your schedule can be unpredictable because it is based off sales, for the most part its all good!

    Advice to Management

    Be ready to be pushed to sell Gap cards!

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good for college students. Friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Extremely short/on-call shifts. Having to bother every single customer for a credit card they don't want. Low minimum wage pay.

    I worked at Gap full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, hours, the work is easy. Company has come a long way in making the worker feel valued.

    Cons

    Very corporate feeling, though advancement opportunities exist- it's more a matter of who you know rather than skill and talent

    Pros

    The people that work at Gap Inc are fabulous. Gap Inc does a good job of trying to make the world a better place from volunteering, to the environment, to equality around the world.

    Cons

    Gap Inc needs to work on building/hiring better leaders at all levels of the organization. The also need to work on providing equal opportunity for woman in the IT Organization.

    Pros

    Really good discount, especially at Other GAP Inc stores. Working wasn't too strenuous.

    Cons

    The scheduling was random and a little unreliable. Most people there either have kids, are in school, or have a second job.
