My experience has been amazing working for the Gap overall.

Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
Miami, FL (US)

I have been working at The Gap for more than 5 years

ProsThe experience you learn as a visual merchandiser will be amazing. You will learn things that will help you later on in your career.
As a manager, you learn different ways into how to manage your business and employees.
Great healthcare benefits, tuition reimbursement, etc...

ConsThe company is not very rewarding to management or associates. It is hard to move up within the company. Does pay better than other companies, but does not pay enough for the amount of work given.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is very political as far as advancing in the company. Must be very competitive. Have a lot of patience.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
