Sales Associate (Current Employee) – New York, NY – 15 November 2017
Very quick pace environment. The management needs a lot of work, very personal and unprofessional. The hardest part of the job is working a floor by yourself. The best part is helping customers with recommendations of what to buy.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – 8 November 2017
A typical day is getting there working on fitting room go backs and ringing customers, we always focus on credit cards, i learned to deal with certain high maintenance customers and how to talk to customers about credit cards, i also learned patience with customers, coworkers and managers. My coworkers were always relaxed and fun to talk to. The culture was so laid back and fun and the hardest part of the job was sometimes the amount of work that had to be done but the most enjoyable was the coworkers and the culture gap had.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Bellingham, WA – 4 November 2017
Loved my time here, I learned a lot about merchandising and sales, as well as how to relate to the customer in order to make sales. The only thing I didn't like about this location (I transferred from another store that I liked much better) was that some of the other associates don't put forth much effort or passion into their work, which really I felt hurt the whole team's moral.

A decent job for a working college student. Management could be better and more benefits should be provided to part time employees. Overall working in stores wasn't a bad experience decent enough for a college student.
GAP is a family oriented work environment. Day to day basis consists of folding & organizing shelves. Replenishing as much items on your downtime. Sizing and colour coordinating is a must. As a sales associate I've learned many; from greeting customers to smiling throughout the day. Assisting customers was my happy place, I find it very relaxing. I love the different diversities in people and getting to know their sense of style in clothing. My many day to day activities consists of answering the phone and money management at end of day shift. The most enjoyable part of this job was getting together as a team and doing team excersises. Learning of what more can be done in this field of job is a goal to many of us. I try my best in reaching a set goal everyday.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Hershey, PA – 1 November 2017
Black Friday was the worst day of my life. The day to day operations are like any other retail store. You are just a glorified sales associate with the extra responsibility of taking care of the money and a certain department.
Merchandise Lead (Current Employee) – Charleston, SC – 30 October 2017
since I was a visual lead, a typical day for me at the Gap included shipment, restocking product, visual moves, keeping up with visual product, and recovering the store. But of course my number one priority was helping the customer. We were a pretty small store in the downtown area with not a lot of hours to give so we had minimal managers (including me). With that, I wore many hats.
