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

    Pros

    Great discount, good temporary or college job, schedule flexibility. That is about it.

    Cons

    Management culture, lack of upward mobility, low pay, inconsistent hours, poor employee morale, lack of trust in management and within management.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be cohesive, responsible and honest. The Gap is a busy company and management needs to be able to handle the stress. Hire from within, plenty of people looking to move up and understand the company culture and values.


  2. "As good as it probably gets in retail."

    Pros

    Fun incentives for in-store employees (concert tickets, point redemption for items, etc). Great corporate mission and inclusive culture, which reflects from the corporate level down to the stores.

    Cons

    It's retail, so there's that. Training programs for entry-level management often felt like a general waste of time and completely inefficient. A lot of gratuitous shifting around of in-store leadership titles (e.g. keyholder to "customer experience expert").
