My time at GAP Inc. was short, but enjoyable. It could be stressful during rush hours but it was very fun. The management there was very nice, and open to changes. They were very reasonable and willing to work with me.

I worked for gap for over three years, right when I graduated from college until I was able to obtain a higher paying job. I found that the Gap did not care much about the employee's needs (family needs, work/life balance, financial stability, medical).

As a hourly associate, I would be worked to 35-38 hours (plenty hours) but not able to earn sick, vacation, or have health benefits while making just above minimum wage. I was overworked, over stressed, no social life, and unable to pay my own medical expenses. Gap is great but only if you are able to manage to have it as a PART time (meaning only part time on your schedule - not theirs) or if you were upper management earning more and accruing benefits.


big plus - 50% discount for employees.

The hours are sporadic and depending on management and location, it could be a good or terrible experience. Fairly easy job though. Pay not really worth it since you dont get benefits.

Great Company to work for. Lots of cool people. I worked for this company for several years. They are a company that gives back to employees. I was in human resources and loved interacting with new hires, training classes, and fun team building events to get everyone involved to know what a great company it is.
Cons
No work life balance

It is an amazing company to work for but it is very hard to advance especially if it is a hope too. There always seems to be some favoritism with employees and no detail or help for those who want to advance

Great place to work at if you have a strong desire for pushing sales for good clothes!
A typical day at work included having to put back a lot of clothing back where it belongs; often times it wasn't done because management kept pushing it onto the closing team. If you're not a part of the closing team, you're less likely to be stressed about work.


The hardest part of the job was probably not taking things personal when it comes to customers and management, especially when you're new to the gap.


The fun part of the job was making new friends and having a team of people that you would consider your second family.
Pros
50% clothing discount (it could be better)
Cons
stressful

The workplace is very welcoming with friendly staff however due to commission, I am forced to convince customers to make a credit card associated with our retail store. The pressure makes it harder for me to enjoy working and talk to the customer without keep reminding them of the credit card that they should make.
Pros
good benefits for employees
Cons
short breaks

Working at Gap Inc. was a short yet educating experience in that I was taught much about the retail industry and how it worked. However, the management I had worked under had a strict policy in not allowing it's employees to operate the cash register unless they could get a customer to sign with the rewards program that Gap offered, which coupled with the manager's strict attitude, gave for an unforgiving work environment.
Pros
Treats and fellowship
Cons
Cut-throat attitude

As is the case for most people who work retail, this was my very first job. I started at Gap, and eventually moved to Banana Republic. My experience at Gap was great! The mangement was overall incredibly supportive, and the job itself wasn't unbearable.

If you're looking to work part-time with some great people, and lack of pay/advancement don't matter much to you, then Old Navy is right up your alley. Would recommend to any high school or college student, but get out when you can.
Pros
Retail insight; always learn new things; great people
Cons
Misguided corporate expectations; low pay

you never have the same day twice
you have to be very flexible in order to succeed

getting to meet new people is a pretty great aspect of the job

the hardest part is making company credit card goals which are unrealistic
Pros
great benefits and discounts as an employee
Cons
push too hard for company credit cards
