Employees rate San Francisco 13.4% lower than the overall average
I have been working at Gap part-time (Less than a year)
-Pretty good hours now
-I have a really lovely team, for the most part
-Not too difficult
-My shifts are short (typically 4-4.5 hours, though I have had a 3 hour shift here and there). That being said...
-Shifts are short. This may be just because I'm part time, but at my last part time job, I typically worked three 6ish hour shifts each week. I probably work 12 hours a week here. I was almost considering getting another part time job
-Lots of (unsuccessfully) pushing credit cards
-Didn't get a lot of hours my first few weeks working here. There was one week where I literally had one (1) four hour shift
-During a closing shift recently, my shift lead sent me to tidy up the front of the store while she and another coworker CHATTED for half an hour. They weren't even folding stuff (I had to go to our back room several times, and I glanced at them on the security camera monitor)
Advice to Management
I think that Gap should try to transition to more of an emphasis on the BRIGHT rewards program as opposed to the Gap Card. It is so much easier to convince customers to sign up for that rather than a credit card.
I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Gap (San Francisco, CA) in May 2011.
I completed Gap Inc's Retail Merchandise Program ("RMP"), which I highly recommend, I had a very positive experience with the program. Upon completing RMP, they set up a few interviews for different positions available. There were one or two interviews for each, usually a 2 on 1 and sometimes also a 1 on 1 with a VP. Some were really relaxed, others had a few tough questions. I think the most important thing is to show your interest in the position/team/product, and to come prepared with thoughts on the business (strengths, competitors, market opportunities)
