womens lead (Former Employee) – Washington, PA – December 7, 2018
nothing to tell, worked your butt off for minimum wage. Helped open the store, at local outlet. From rearranging shelving units to merchandising to the floor it was a mess. Little kid attitudes from managment didn't help matters any. Favoritism galore
I worked at Gap Factory for a little over a year before moving and pursuing school. Management is laid back but also keeps team on track and motivated. Breaks were reasonable and always kept me refreshed when going back on the floor. Loved working with co-workers who were all friendly. Never really had a problem with anything there. I really enjoyed my time at Gap and will definitely return if I were ever to move back!
A typical day at work involves helping people from all of the world. Making sales and keeping all our customers satisfied. Work is fast pace and I am able to demonstrate my great multitasking skills on a regular basis.

By far, this is the best retail company I've worked for. The staff are super friendly. I worked in SF and Sacramento and they both are very understanding of their employees' lives outside of work. I was a student at the time I was working in both places and they were able to accommodate for my schedule changes each semester.

They are so nice and you should not feel scared or intimidated by them. Just be yourself and make as much connection as possible. I was traded so well and was thought so many things that really helped me feel secure being in that environment. Was always being pushed out of my comfort zone that got me stressed out and made my skills increase with public speaking. I was only going to be there for 6 months and they knew. That all gave me advice and helped me build a plan on what to do next.
greeter and assisted customers in dressing area (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 28, 2018
It was a first job. Pay is low and customers are difficult. But no more than anywhere else. I ended up staying for two years because I didn't need to be anywhere else. But management, lack of pay and refusal to advance me forced me out.
GAP does not value it's associates and does not have strong management. It also does NOT foster an environment that allows for customer connections. It is not a place to work if you enjoy talking to customers and building those connections to make them repeat customers and drive sales. This is also not somewhere to work if you want to enjoy coming to work.
