I worked at Gap full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Gap has maintained the values and culture of Don and Doris Fisher. Great place to work. Fun work enviornment. Good growth internationally.

Cons

Can't stay ahead of the fashion curve. Plays catch up. Has lost some of creativity it used have. Finds it way, then loses it, then finds it....

Advice to Management

Too much Bureaucracy. Too much social cohesion. Balance the value of working together, and not dumbing down programs so that everyone has "buy in." Be more bold.

    I have been working at Gap full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They really care about their employees. They have one of the best training cultures in the business and this shines, especially when/if you leave the company to explore options else where. People expect top notch leaders that come from Gap Inc.

    Cons

    This is not the company to be a leader with if you are not 100% committed to excellence. The expectation level is much higher than that of most retailers and if you don't preform they will do what needs to be done to get the results.

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

    Pros

    It's fairly easy, greeting customers, folding/hanging clothes, you get to wear your own style and you get 50% discount here and banana republic and 30% off at old navy

    Cons

    You're on your feet your entire shift, you usually don't get more than 16-20 hrs per week, having to recover the store at closing shift sucks bc you can't leave the store a mess and you don't get paid very much. It's not worth the drive I have to make.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring new ppl and give current employees more hours
