Contractor/Financial Analyst (Current Employee), Albuquerque, NMNovember 18, 2014
Pros: culture, enviornment, people, benefits
Cons: pay
Gap Inc. has a very laid back culture that I love. The biggest thing is accountability, as everyone is held accountable for their work. Asking questions is applauded, and expanding your knowledge is encouraged. Management and co-workers are all treated equally. The culture make people actually want to go to work and not dredd it everyday.

systematic process of maintaining a stock room
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Westfield, NJNovember 17, 2014
My day usually consists of organizing the shipment of boxes that come in to the store by category and then processing the product within the boxes. After the shipment has been processed I break down the boxes and tape them together in bundles before taking them outside to be thrown away. If I've learned anything from the Gap it is to be persistent and – more... precise. Management is very well staffed with a variety of challenging personalities who strive to get everyone involved no matter what their position in the company is. My co-workers are very easy to get along with and we enjoy giving each other feedback on the task at hand so that we can do our jobs more efficiently. The hardest part about my job is lifting the boxes, it can take its toll. The most enjoyable part of my job is having the distinct privilege of working with an amazing staff. – less

Gap Inc
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYNovember 16, 2014
The Gap is a great company to work for. This was one of my first jobs working in retail. I learned everything about customer service while working for this company. They had so many great work shops to sharpen their employees skills. I worked for the gap for a long time and was able to really work my way up from starting as a part time sales associate – more... until I left the company many years later as an assistant manager. The people that I had met while employed there will be a part of my life for a very long time. – less

A fun work place
Sales Associate (Former Employee), New York, NYNovember 15, 2014
Pros: discount at the stores and other stores in the company
Cons: always wanting to shop
Atypical day in the Gap is full of energy, to make those sales, make those personal and store goals. I learned that customer service is all over, and its great to try your hardest to stay positive. My co-workers were fun and really team players. The hardest part was not taking my entire paycheck and not giving back to the company. What enjoyed the most – more... was using my creativity to help other get dressed or even expressing my sense of style. – less

The best job I've had yet.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Springfield, PANovember 15, 2014
A typical day at work would be greeting and helping customers find exactly what type of clothing they're looking for with an energetic attitude. I learned the customer is always right in this business, no matter what. As I said before, the most enjoyable part of the job is seeing customers happy with their results of what they bought and/or tried on.

Productive work place that is always on the go.
Manager (Former Employee), San Antonio TX, San Marcos, TX, Huston, TXNovember 13, 2014
Pros: paid business trips when traveling to other stores.
Cons: the massive crowds during the holidays.
Atypical day at work would be to open the store, handle all employee relations and operations, handle all deposits and budgets for the day/week/month, all employee scheduling, district conferences and meetings, inventory control, lose prevention control, and customer service. I learned a lot about Human Resources and Payroll while at Gap as well as – more... how to effectively handle the public and a well balanced staff. I also learned a lot about how to and not to handle co-workers and what makes an effective, productive working environment. The hardest part of my job was time management and I am now an expert in efficiency and managing my time. The most enjoyable part of my job was the busyness of it all and being able to test myself. I also really enjoyed traveling for the company to open news stores and train their staff. – less

Great place company to work for.
sales associate (Current Employee), Florida mallNovember 13, 2014
Pros: discount and friendly co workers
Cons: gap cards
I work for gap and so far the only issue I have is the hours the more gap cards you sell, the more hours you get. Besides that it is easy once you get the hang of things. Gap is my first retail job and if you enjoy talking to people and folding clothes, this is the job for you.

Good place to learn the retail industry
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Astoria, NYNovember 12, 2014
A typical day at the Gap will be very busy and chaotic. Being at the Gap for the past year, I've learned a lot. I've learned to have patience when a customer gets irate, how to handle cash flow, how to rapid fold, and how to up-stock and fill in. Something else I learned was merchandising and taking in shipment. The management team worked collectively – more... and are great team players. From them I learned how to lead by example. As a team player myself I that not everyone is ready, willing, and able. For those that were, they made the environment and tasks pleasurable. The hardest part of the job would be when its a really slow day, and we haven't met our goal. The most enjoyable part of the job is when its really busy and I haven't realized how fast time has gone, when I've exceeded my goal on selling Gap Cards, and when we reach our daily goal as a team. – less

One word: Multitasking
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Washington, DCNovember 11, 2014
Pros: working in a place with great culture and legacy. great health plans.
Cons: it was hard to balance work and life.
A basic day would be performing simple operational duties to open the store; registers, schedule printing and writing out goals for everyone including managers. If it was a shipment day I would be delegating and working "hands on" with processing new shipment. There would also be a one minute meeting with opening and mid-day associates to discuss goals – more... and business. I would also be required to jump on a conference call once or twice a week with others in the area of business. Depending on the time of the season I would even have to draw out a map/floor plans of the sales floor to place future merchandise that was to come in the next few weeks. In the midst of all that my last but most important obligation was to make sure that the store as a whole ran in a safe and friendly environment for customers and also workers.
In my time serving at the Gap I truly learned the full meaning and aspect of multitasking. To most it may have seemed to be a lot at times and indeed it was but it taught me how to manage under pressure and how to get various tasks done in little time given. It taught me the importance of time management.
The best part about my job was using my creative skills and leadership skills to it's fullest capacity. And I was also a big fan of the great culture and atmosphere that Gap provided. – less

Good for High School Kids
Sales Associate/Peer Advisor (Former Employee), New York, NYNovember 11, 2014
Pros: great discount 50%
Cons: poor pay raise, stress gap cards, no room for growth, no full time position
When I first started working for the company over the Christmas season I enjoyed it very much. But as the company changed and the management team everything was different. They stressed the unnecessary such as gap cards (opening credit). The pay increased by cents, management weren't flexible with school schedules. The entire culture shifted and became – more... uncomfortable. – less
