Gap Inc. – Why Work For Us?


ACROSS OUR BRANDS AND ACROSS THE GLOBE, WE LIVE OUR VALUES.

We believe in growth and innovation.
Now that digital has reshaped the storefront, our five brands know no borders.

We believe in equal pay.
In the U.S., women earn an average of 79 cents for every dollar their male peers earn — and the pay gap is even wider for women of color. Gap Inc. was the first FORTUNE 500 company to announce that it pays women and men equally for equal work.

We believe in fair wages.
We’ve invested in our 65,000 front-line employees in the U.S. by raising our U.S. minimum hourly rate to $10/hour in 2015.

We believe in sustainability.
Gap Inc. has set ambitious goals for 2020, including a 50 percent absolute reduction of greenhouse-gas emissions globally, and diverting from landfills 80 percent of the waste generated by our U.S. facilities.
