    Pros

    Great discount and benefits package. Decent pay however not worth the stress.

    Cons

    Too much pressure to push credit cards. It is the companys only concern. If you're not meeting your goals then you will hear about it nonstop from upper management. The expectations are unrealistic for tasking versus credit card sales. Again, this is their number 1 priority. I was a new hire manager for a little over a month and never received proper training, was never allowed to do what I was hired for, which is Merchandising and to work with the staff on credit card sales. It was always about credit cards, and trying to pitch them the "Gap way". My new approach was shot down because I believed not throwing credit cards at the customers as soon as they approached the cash wrap would be more effectice. However Gap wants that to be first thing you mention as well as on the floor and throughout the customers shopping. Not mention the expectation to work extra hours, coming in early or staying late to recover the store because, again, if you're not getting cards then nothing else at all should be done during business hours. I was employeed 5 weeks and have never been more stressed at a job in the 15 years I have been working.

    Pros

    managers are usually fun to work with. If you are an extrovert this job is for you, as you'll deal with a bunch of different people.

    Cons

    Sometimes customers are mean and managers push you to sign people for the credit cards.
