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
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – May 16, 2016
I would come in and work the register, or work the floor and makes sure clothes were folded and in the right area. I had to display a constant presence on the sales floor, and help customers with whatever they had questions about or needed assistance with. My co-workers were nice. nothing was extremely hard about the job, but what I enjoyed most was working with individual and knowing I was helping them in some aspect.
Everyday was a fun day to be at work. I learned a lot about shipment and processing. Managers were very professional and nice. Co-workers were all easy going people to work with and learn from. The job was very easy. I enjoyed everyday working in that store environment. I just wish they gave out more hours.
My time at GAP, even though I was young, it helped me establish that I was part of a team. We knew if one of was lacking, our numbers wouldn't reflect our customer service. I was with the company for about 3+ years and truth be told, I didn't want to leave when I got a new prospective job. Gap helped me establish my need for punctuality and to help others.
I have been here for about 4 years now, and for a reason. The employees that work here are always happy. So willing to help others, with smiling faces. Our favorite part of the job is just being able to interact with all different types of customers and their families that come in. We are even more ecstatic when they ask for help and opinions. This company wasn't ranked one of the best companies to work for, for no reason.
Retail Associate (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA 94588 – September 5, 2016
Working at Gap gave me the opportunity to get my feet wet in the retail environment. Extremely friendly environment and eager to help new employees get accustomed to store maintenance and guest service.
Hour lunches, staff meetings, career building excercises
MANAGER (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – May 11, 2016
I worked at GAP for almost 7 years and I enjoyed every minute of it. I woke up each day with excitement in going to work. My General Manager was amazing. I started out as a Sales Associate and worked my way up to Visual Manager and Manager. I only had to leave the company due to work/life. I had a younger daughter at the time and the scheduling was not working for my family and I.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Manhasset, NY – September 21, 2016
I absolutely hated it. Managers weren't scheduling me enough hours. Would schedule me then say never mind don't need you. It was a wast of time honestly. I would never work there again. Dust bunnies everywhere. Clothes all over the floor. They never cleaned the customer bathroom during the day very gross.
Clocked in at 6:50 am from then on i went to my work station and began scanning products into assigned boxes,I learned how to fix shipping errors from my time there the hardest part of my job would have to be standing on my feet for 10-12 hours daily.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 4, 2016
It was a good place to have my first retail job. However, even though I was recruited at my school, it seemed like they expected GAP to be my first priority. I was always asked to stay later than the time I was scheduled or come in on my days off. My hours would be cut with no hesitation and in the same breath I would be asked to stay late. I always had to compensate for my coworkers that either wouldn't show up or would show up and do half of their jobs. Even though my managers would make me feel special at a constant by telling me I have "great managerial skills" and they need more employees like me, I was never given a raise.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Forest Hills, NY – September 22, 2016
The only schedule you for 4 1/2hr shifts. There was a month where I only worked 5 shifts. When you ask for more shifts they say of course they will see what they can do and nothing happens. There is absolutely o way to make a living here.
Short breaks, Pay Rate, Lack of Shifts, Poor Management
I met some of the best people at GAP, it was one of the more laid back retail stores that I have worked for. Although, there were times it got SUPER busy. Unfortunately, I didn't get to spend as much time as I would have liked with this job because we were all laid off.

Sales associate (Former Employee) – Glendale, CA – April 29, 2016
I learned how to multitask very well at this job, everyday was a juggle between helping customers,putting product out on the floor, updating all the signs. My management team and co-workers were amazing, they made it an incredible experience. The hardest part would have to be always having everything done by closing time. The best part was when there would have to be a change made in the store then a group of employees would be working together building/ breaking down walls and decorating.
Treat employees how you want them to treat your best customers
Program Specialist (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – July 11, 2016
Zero passion and sub-par paychecks/benefits. Stay away from this company! Employee engagement is the emotional commitment the employee has to the organization and its goals. When a company treats it's employees cheaply it engenders less commitment.
A good source of diverse job opportunities for technical staff.
DevOps/Build and Release Engineer (Current Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – September 13, 2016
Great people to work with. Good benefits. Amazing technology variety and scale. Strong diversity and inclusion atmosphere. Plenty of opportunities to move horizontally. Used to have strong support for remote workers.
Sales Associate, Childrens Replenisher (Former Employee) – Camarillo, CA – July 24, 2016
In the first 8 months of my time at Gap Inc I was asked to be full time as a children's merchandiser. But once obtained no real responsibility came because of the managers and the ever changing operations.
