    I worked at Athleta part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Innovative Sales Strategy
    dynamic teams
    on-trend clothing (discount)

    Cons

    Politics (but you always get that in retail)
    lack of training on credit cards for new associates

    Advice to Management

    Having worked their for 5 years, I have seen the shifts of different associate training programs. There need to be consistency, once associates understand the products and how to explain them to potential customers,the clothes sell themselves.

    Pros

    Great discount at all Gap, Inc brands. Co-workers and managers are a pleasure to work with. The company's mission & the connection we make with the customer is like no other. Love that want to promote from within.

    Cons

    The return policy is excellent for the customers, but the employees only have a 30 day return policy. Other than that, no complaints!

    Advice to Management

    Don't change too much. Keep it the same great atmosphere it already is.

    Pros

    Assign Sales Associates to their strengths - mine is customer service. I work the floor and Fit Room where developing relationships happen!

    Cons

    Unfortunately, my position is part-time.

    Advice to Management

    None - From upper to lower management a great tone is set where it is a pleasant environment!

    Pros

    - Great discount
    - Organized and well-structured
    - Competitive pay
    - Team leaders, sales floor manager, and assistant manager are all really nice and helpful
    - Love the company mission and values

    Cons

    - Management is pretty strict, they expect a lot out of you
    - The constant push of selling Athleta Cards to customers who really don't want them
    - General manager is really strict, doesn't try to get to know you on a personal level, and can be quite mean. Constant criticism, most of which is unnecessary
    - They constantly expect you to come in early, stay late, or take extra shifts
    - Almost no training for new hires. They just throw you into the business and it's pretty stressful trying to learn everything yourself
    - Since it's part of a large corporation things get very complicated and non-personal
    - Basically no advancement opportunities
    - I usually left work feeling unappreciated

    Advice to Management

    Your sales associates are one of the most important parts of your store. They do a lot for you -- you should criticize them less and appreciate them more.
