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

    Pros

    Flexible with my schedule, good managers, fun to work with the product and customers.

    Cons

    Pretty much harassing people to sign up for a Gap card, minimum number of emails we had to get per shift, and it seems noone wants to give out their email, (I can't say I blame them.# Although I like my managers, they really pressure you to push sales #with add ons, etc.) and to sign people up for the Gap card. It's retail, and I get that to meet their bottom line these things are necessary, BUT, when you have to keep asking the customer if they want to sign up AFTER they've declined is a bit much.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that it's not for a lack of trying if people don't want the dumb Gap card. How many times does a customer have to say no?

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

    Pros

    -The employee discount
    -Your availability and scheduling (very flexible for college students or second jobs--which you'll need)

    Cons

    -The hours: If you work in a smaller store, you could go weeks without getting scheduled. The company's structure for hours is all about store and overall company performance. Socialism is the best way to describe it. Everyone suffers together or succeeds together. No one if favored or better than anyone else.

    Advice to Management

    -Many managers play favorites to the point it effects the associates who get scheduled more or have it easier.
