Company made a lot of changes in a year. Very overwhelming. Communication of directives was all over the place and not done in a timely manner. I learned to constantly contact other stores to make sure we were on track with directives and marketing.
Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee) – Palatine, IL – January 14, 2018
I usually worked 3 days per week. Mostly closing nights on weekdays and 8 hour shifts on weekends. My typical day is cashiering first thing, then processing clothing and cleaning up the store afterwards
paid 15 minutes, good discount, time passes by quickly
stressful, busy days, some physical pain (legs hurt, back hurts)
I worked at gap for a month and have worked a total of 9 hours. You're schedule is never set. I was told I was going to be getting almost 40 hours a week, some weeks I don't even work. They will send you you schedule but will call you that day to tell you they cut your shift because they didn't make enough money that day. I have been called as I was pulling into the parking lot 20 mins before my shift started.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK 73127 – January 9, 2018
This job is PRIMARILY great for teenagers or students who are in college who are currently, living with their parents. If you are living alone, taking college classes, and you do not have another job, this job is not for you. Hourly pay is more than you would expect from a retail store, which is why it is perfect for people who do not have the responsibilities of paying most of their bills.
Hourly pay better than most retail jobs.
Unless you are an adult and a manager, this job is not for most adults unless you have a second job.
Sales ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Petaluma, CA – January 9, 2018
My job was a part time job though it was what i could do while I was a student. The hours and days off or working were so speratic and I had no really set schedule in my life. With that some weeks I barley worked and made no money so it was just to inconsistent for me to continue working there.
sales associate (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – January 7, 2018
I really enjoyed my time at GAP. Although I was sad when management told us the location was closing, the time I spent there was worthwhile. Some days were slower than others but I really enjoyed helping the customers pick out new wardrobe items and gifts for family members/friends. The hardest part about working there was working on Black Friday. I had never worked in such a hectic situation but it was a learning experience. I loved the management and all my coworkers.
Sales associate (Former Employee) – South Miami, FL – January 4, 2018
A typical day at work is very relaxed, the relationship with my coworkers was awesome, we would always help each other to make the costumer service very efficient. My manager would always help me improve my abilities and guide me to be a better sales associate at work. We would always get coffee in the mornings, talk with all the coworkers and maintain a good environment. The hardest part of the job was to deal with some costumers but we would all put effort to solve any kind of problem. I really liked working there and It was such a good experience for me. I would totally recommend it.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – United States – January 4, 2018
I love working at Gap its a great place to work in the retail industry. The managers are great they work with you and help you out if you ever have a problem. If Gap is your second job they will work around your schedule.
Fabric RD Associate- Gapfit- Freelance (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 2, 2018
The Gap environment encourages productivity and success. It encourages employees to learn, perfect their skill, learn to work closely and collaborate with others, all the while not being overworked. The most enjoyable part of my current position is that I feel as though I am learning a lot and still building necessary experience to further my career.
Level 2 Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, NY – December 28, 2017
If you're looking for flexible hours and a place to develop your retail skills, this is the place. Over a typical day, you'll be able to do things from cashing out customers to selling credit programs and putting fashion first.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – December 20, 2017
Working at the gap was alright. The only thing is that the hours was not steady you can be working 32 hours one week and the nest you working a 4 hour shift. For those who is solemnly relying on that one income i don't know how they do it.

Working at gap in the mall kept me on my toes. it helped me gain more multitasking skills : i could be fixing a display table where a costumer needed assistance in a return , and there i go to help. Loved working in gap.
