I worked at Gap part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Flexibility, lenience towards lateness and slip-ups; fun attitude of staff

Cons

High company standards that almost seem unreal. Unprofessional staff, though fun at times, i think forget that they are at work and don't know what is appropriate to talk about at work.

Advice to Management

Be a little harsher on your floor employees that aren't doing anything and making the job harder for others.

    I worked at Gap part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only "pro" would be that you get half off full-priced merchandise. However, if I was someone who didn't work there, it's actually cheaper to wait for the items to go on clearance, and use an additional percentage off.

    Cons

    -It's very training-intensive, however, I was not scheduled until three weeks after I completed my "training." When asked why I didn't know where certain things went on the floor, I was reprimanded, even though it was my first "real," shift.
    -I voiced that I did not want to work the cash-wrap, and I would much prefer to stock/unstock, because I am physically able to do so. I was repeatedly put on cash-wrap, regardless.
    -I was reprimanded for not folding the jeans correctly, even though in the training, I was never showed how to properly fold anything at all.
    -They have a very, very high turnover rate.
    -The pay sucks. 25 cents over minimum wage, no.
    -The GapCard. That's all.

    Advice to Management

    Actually train the individuals who are going to be representing your company. Maybe the turnover rate wouldn't be so high.

    I worked at Gap part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. Well, maybe the discount was pretty decent.

    Cons

    Management was a drag. I was constantly on call, even on days that I asked off. It was just a poor experience.
