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

Pros

Discount, working with a team, fun environment, upbeat

Cons

New management, disconnect with employees and mgmt.,

Advice to Management

When the new management came in it seemed like they had some great ideas but no way of expressing them: this led to the disconnect of sales associates and the rest of the team. The new manager that came in while I was there did not know how to communicate with their employees and, although I know they were only trying to help, communicated with us in a rude way that did not promote positive work in some people.

    Pros

    Really great Assistant managers; excellent work environment; a product I can believe in; they recognize effort. They treat employees well and the discount is great.

    Cons

    Are there ever enough hours for a Sales Associate? If only I could be there more.

    Advice to Management

    Keep that music up-beat!

    I worked at Gap full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Corporate Values are great, ideas are innovative, great line of product

    Cons

    Management at store level not "monitored" closely enough to promote corporate values/ consequently store values may differ / not enough focus on individual growth / difficult to move forward in career

    Advice to Management

    have more involvement with employees at the store level from the regional , corporate, and district level to negate favoritism at store level and to develop individual talents with fair monetary reward for jobs well done
