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

    Pros

    -pretty good employee discounts on gap, factory and old navy
    -great co-workers
    -lax workplace

    Cons

    -crappy customers with attitude
    -no theft control
    -no proper training
    -poor management
    -no opportunities to grow at the company, even though management will tell you there are.
    -unfair treatment
    -even if you work hard, theres no opportunity for higher wage or better offers. Dont bother trying or try working as much as the job is worth.
    -biased in providing hours to certain employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff with respect, actually listen to our concerns, bring back the points system "FOR" the employees not managment. I've seen management continuously lie to their employees and suck up to head quarters. If you offer kids higher positions, let them have it, dont treat them like usuable wastes.

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

    Pros

    Culture of company, growth, business acumen training , investment in people , diversity and those are just a few of the things

    Cons

    Very hard work , long hrs , you need to adapt to change easily , struggle with the amt of hours given for work loads and customers are very messy

    Advice to Management

    No advice . My DM did everything to support my needs for the business . He made sure to recognize myself and my team and our accomplishments and always praised our work . I think anyone who knows anything about the GAP is aware it’s a heavy workload , high expectations of its managers but very rewarding.
