    Enjoyed it

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsThe people I worked with at the Gap made my experience enjoyable. It wasn't always easy getting to work at 5 am to stock the shelves, but we made the best of it.

    ConsIt would be a nice gesture for the Gap to offer benefits to more of their hourly employees who are putting in nearly forty hours of work per week.

    Good first retail experience

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsBrand is well known and the stores are popular. They provide some training initially. The work consists mainly of restocking the shelves, sorting the displays, and helping the customers.

    ConsThe company discount is only on full-price purchases. They need to provide more season to season style training.
