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

    Pros

    -Good pay
    -Enjoyable coworkers
    -Simple work
    -Options to avoid working indiliked areas (ie; cash, fits, kids, etc)
    -Good, regular hours
    -Nice discount
    -Managers are nice and chill, trust us to move things around if we need to.

    Cons

    -Inconstant days off, generally change week-to-week but that's normal for retail
    -Sometimes Gap makes things difficult, like multiple incorrect pull-back lists or suddenly cancelled or additional shipments
    -Not all stores are the same. Picked up a shift at other store in town and it seemed like few of them cared about the store.
    -The much higher-ups want us to push e-mail capture at check out which sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making us push e-mail capture, no one like it and it ruins customer experience.
