Pros: great co-workers, good benefits - medical, eye, dental, 401k esop
Cons: dealing with dissatisfied customers
Gap seems to attract a great group of employees. I enjoyed working with a great team at the various Gap Stores I was employed at. I was an Assistant Manager for 8 years, having started as a Seasonal Part time employee and working part-time for 5 years. I realized that I really liked my part time job better than my full time job and applied for and became a Gap Manager. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with both the great sales team and the customers, many of whom were repeat customers. The hardest part was dealing with customers who were not happy with the promotions or an item, but it was my challenge and goal to see them walk away happy. A typical day would start off checking our sales goal, managers to hours allocated for the day, giving the Sales Associates a one-minute meeting and deploying them to various jobs, as well as overseeing the sales floor to ensure that the Sales Associates were giving exceptional customer service while adhering to company policies and procedures.
