Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Leesburg, VA – December 2, 2015
Near the end there was a lot of pressure about selling cards and capturing emails. A lot of other people didn't like the managers because of this pressure and didn't like the job because of the pressures as well. I was good at selling cards and therefore none of this mattered to me
This is one of the many jobs that I loved, it was always fun, always something to do, ability to meet new people & able to help customers. It's funny because this job..... wasn't really like a job - it was fun to go in.

A typical day, if we had the inventory and work, would consist of walking up to 15 miles a shift. Each shift was 10 hours. Nights worked best for me, i didn't mind the walking, definitely worth the money. was overall a good job
Working in retail allows an individual like myself to enhance people skills, however retail is not for everyone. GAP Inc. is very focused on customer service and attending to all the needs of the store, no matter how small. Employees are expected to be very attentive and dedicated.

I was always under the impression that i'd love working here as I always shopped here. But not the case. I will say that my coworkers were always kind, and helpful. It's just a messy store at times, and there weren't enough people working to help you clean,and tend to customers.

This might be a fun "starter job" or hold me over job until you can find another position. Starting pay is minimum wage for your first six months. You do not get full time hours unless your are a lead or a manager. The demands for your availability on weekends are non negotiable which makes having a second job to support what little they pay you impossible. This is a good job if you want to gain a little retail experience or need some money short term. This not a place to start a career, be respected, or accepted.
Sometimes good discounts on giftcards for employees

Gap Factory is a fun and enjoyable job. I love the customer interaction and being able to be the one to help a customer find the perfect outfit. Your hard work does not go unrecognized. Its like a big family.
The hardest part of the job wasn't the work, but getting enough hours to feel you are really working at the company. The hours weren't distributed on how hard you work or how long you've been with the company, but on whether the manager liked you.
