I have been working at Gap part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Quality store with nice products that are always changing. Employees get a nice discount. Some good people to work with.

Cons

Not much recognition of hard work if you don't get Gap Cards. Will schedule you for the longest shift that requires the fewest breaks for associates. (i.e. 7 1/2 hours not 8)

Advice to Management

Need a more consist leadership with better understating of expectations of associates. Make it a more positive place to work. Don't have associates that just worked a 7 hour day also close the store.

    I worked at Gap as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    - compensation is decent for the industry
    - some flexibility in hours, they are usually understanding of personal emergencies
    - great people, very friendly culture
    - location offers decent transit accessibility and lunch options

    Cons

    - work is not creatively fulfilling
    - sometimes there are periods of unreasonable overtime which may be uncompensated
    - can get a bit clique-y (causes disruptive atmosphere)

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to get more involved in work of junior employees to understand who is doing good work. This will never happen, but: consider hiring more people to reduce workload to a reasonable level.
