    I worked at Gap Inc. part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked for four Gap Inc. brands over six years while in high school and college. It was a wonderful company to work for. I am still friends with many of my past co-workers. If you want to advance you can. The company likes to stay internal from my perspective.

    Cons

    It's retail so sometimes the hours and work were draining/unfavorable

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

    Pros

    consistently gives breaks to employees, decent pay for the amount of work, good company policies, gapweb, the helpful site where employees can go to check benefits and recognize each other, employee discount, great no tolerance of discrimination policies, and outstanding managers (at least at the store where I work).

    Cons

    Training of new employees could use some attention. The managers are really busy with other tasks, and should direct other employees to train the new associates.

    Advice to Management

    A training checklist of tasks to learn would ensure that all areas are covered, and that the new employees aren't making mistakes that cost many labor hours to undo.

    I have been working at Gap Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The teams are great. Everyone is very nice and pleasant to work with. Work from home available.

    Cons

    The leadership team is ridiculous. The calendar is impossible to manage, the people have the top have absolutely no concept of how the operations need to run and/or deadlines. Makes the job extremely frustrating and inefficient. Brings down moral to extreme levels.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip.
