      Pros

      -Good managers -Employee Discount -Flexible hours This is coming from someone who has only worked for two companies with 20+ people in my entire life. With that being said, this was my most complete job, where there was structure in place to make me a better employee.

      Cons

      -Rapidly changing staff...particularly managers This makes it hard to create and develop relationships with managers, which could hamper someones ability to get promotions.

      We believe in the value of teaching skills that our employees can use on and off the job, regardless of where their careers take them. Thanks for sharing what it's like to be a sales associate in one of our stores!

      Pros

      It wasn’t awful but you can do better. The employee discount isn’t too bad either.

      Cons

      There was a lot of favoritism and some bullying from the higher ups. Definitely didn’t feel comfortable towards the end and some of the coworkers were “race-insensitive”. The pay wasn’t great and forcing the employees to sign new card members was annoying. The store is so expensive and you expect new customers to come in all the time? No, only returning customers would come in. On top of that, the employees would get blamed for not getting new card members. It was total b.s.

      Pros

      -very generous employee discount that I used often - my store management team was very willing to work with my schedule as a student

      Cons

      - karens and other typical retail annoyances - Gap does not know how to incentivize employees at all! - high turnover - poor pay - Upper management is absolutely terrible. They are so clearly out of touch with with their employees and their customers. Technology is way behind. Financially stupid. Even people as close as district managers had no idea what to do to improve anything. I would be surprised if Gap was still around in 10 years.
