Gap Inc. – Why Work For Us?


More than the clothes we create, Gap Inc. is defined by its people. Meet some of the talented people who make Gap Inc. great. #WeAreGapInc

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.

Doris and Don Fisher opened the first Gap store in 1969 with a simple idea — to make it easier to find a pair of jeans — and a commitment to do more.

Over the last 46 years, the company has grown from a single store into a global fashion business with five brands: Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta and Intermix. We have more than 125,000 employees worldwide, more than 3,300 stores in 90 countries, several global e-commerce sites…and we're still growing.

We know that the only way we'll continue to grow successfully is by nurturing a strong, diverse team. Since Gap Inc.'s earliest days, diversity and inclusion have been woven into our DNA. For example, our employees came together to organize and run five business resource groups (BRGs) that not only support cross-functional networking, mentoring and community service, but also provide input on ways Gap Inc. can be more inclusive and respectful. In addition, these groups provide insights that help drive our business and help us create better product and experiences for our customers.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gap Inc..

    Interview

    The recruiter reached out and asked if I was open at a very specific time in the middle of the day. My current job is a big meeting heavy, and I wasn’t available then, so I replied back saying I wasn’t available then and gave a bunch of availability. The recruiter replied back asking if it was I available at the same time that I just told her I wasn’t open at. Not the brightest tool in the shed. I told her again I was not open then and provided more availability. Then I did not hear back for a week. I followed up, and after a few days I was told that the hiring manager didn’t like my background so the recruiter won’t be speaking with me. This is insanely rude in two aspects - 1) don’t reach out to candidates who your hiring manager hasn’t approved of and 2) don’t keep pushing for a time if the candidate is unavailable then! This was for a job at their corporate offices. Really unprofessional.
