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

    Pros

    The culture at this location was lively, we were usually pretty busy but I never felt short-staffed. As my first job in high school, it made me feel good about working hard to meet a standard and learning about the importance of money!

    Cons

    I've heard people complaining about not getting enough hours each week, but as a student, it actually worked out better for me..

    Definitely something to try out. I learned that I am a pretty good salesman from working here.

    I have been working at The Gap

    Pros

    Great coworkers. You will be recognized if you work hard. They will praise you during work so all the coworkers know who you are. Managers will know YOU if you do a great job. Fast paced and you have to be able to think on your feet.

    Cons

    Some customers. Customers think you are dumber than them. You must know how to keep your cool in many situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell us how to get jobs in corporate. Communicate with corporate better so we do not feel lost in our store.

    I worked at The Gap

    Pros

    the company does offer a great discount

    Cons

    management not very productive, and its very hard to get a promotion after getting recognition from customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give everyone a fair chance at getting a promotion, not just by picking favorites.
