    I worked at Gap part-time

    Pros

    Friendly staff, flexible schedules, opportunities for growth and employee recognition programs.

    Cons

    Well, it's retail - so customers will always be a wildcard, especially at a children's store. But that's the way the cookie crumbles

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

    Pros

    - Good discount (50% off regular Gap, BR, ON & an additional 30% on Outlet)!

    - Easy tasks

    - Awesome coworkers and managers

    Cons

    - Busy hours can feel long (especially if you’re in the fitting rooms)

    - Weekends are packed so the store is a huge mess

    - Not enough hours and uneven distribution (some people would receive more hours than others)

    - Rude and cheap customers

    - High sales targets

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
