Department Manager (Former Employee) – Nassau County, NY – February 6, 2016
Was a Department Manager at a high volume location. This job was portrayed much differently then what it was. First off I was hired within a week so I should have known something was up. No help from anyone was told that I would be working with a team of ppl in my department not true. This position is more of manual labor. Associate are entitled and lazy and all have a nasty attitude.
Everything... Management always changed, hours, never felt appreciated, and high GM and ASM turnover.

You have to learn to roll with the punches, work with your employee, respect, and enjoy what you do, Management needs to understand some situations especially when they come from a different store. Or out of the military life.
Loss Prevention Agent (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – February 1, 2016
I have been working at gap inc for the past five years. i started as a sales associate and worked my way up to be a loss prevention agent. i have learned and grown with the company. This company has helped me improve on my customer service skills.
Overall a great place to work, you get to hire train and develop associates. Forecast weekly goals prep store every morning merchandise different departments. I learned the different between a Boss and a Leader. My Manager was the definition of a Boss.... He set unreal expectations for the staff without clearly leading his team in completing them, then would throw fits if things weren't exactly his way. My Co-workers were pretty good besides the lack of communication at times. The Hardest part of my job is working with team members that don't work with the same passion as you at times. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting to work with people and hire great people and develop young talent.
Great medical benefits, 4 weeks PTO
Training flaws, management, workload is sometime overwhelming.
Email Specialist (Former Employee) – Grove City, OH – January 30, 2016
ok place to work, staff was ok, employees were good to work with. Hours were good. had an exercise spot in the workplace. You are able to work early morning or later in the day and they have part time and full time employment.
There is always something to do in the stores. No downtime but often not enough time to complete tasks as needed. Closing shifts are not reliable. You stay in the store until you're finished which could be well after you're scheduled to go home.
Usually 5 am or 6 am. Always checking pricing ,promotional sales and marketing.Responsible for sign printing and proper placement.Also ordering of Marketing and communicating with Corporate in San Francisco..Always enjoyed training new employees.
Cashier and customer service representative (Current Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – January 25, 2016
Great company to work for. I really love all my co-workers and the entire Gap family. A typical day at Gap is dealing with customers who are in a hurry and fixing the hot mess they leave behind, whether it be the clothes they leave on the floor or the food they forget about.The hardest part about this job is not being able to buy all of the clothes they have. Not to mention the rude customers who get upset about the music being too loud. My favorite part of the job is helping people put outfits together based on their needs and events. Working at Gap has taught me a lot these past few months but the best lesson I have learned working there is that patience is key along with kindness. Being kind and patient will get you anywhere.
