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.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – 18 February 2018
advanced from a sales associate to an assistant manager. i loved the culture that my store was built around but culture is built around management and attitude and the people you hire Since new management its been going down hill.
The most enjoyable part of this job was the people I met and the relationships I made with my managers. They were very friendly and treated their employees as peers which made for a very comfortable work environment.
I typical would come in before the store was open. I would do cleaning tasks ,such as, sweep the floors, dust shelves, and clean mirrors. Then the during the hours of operations I would greet customers, help customers with shopping, answer telephone calls, and fold and replenish merchandise.

Lots of fun meeting new people and shopping with them. Great management. Always a lot of energy and new things happening. The most enjoyable part of the job, is getting shipment. Putting new product out is the best part. Great company that is always moving forward.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 11 February 2018
Working here is fun at times, but they dont give people fulltime hours unless they are promoted to a manager position. This leaves people in a situation where they might have to get a second job or find another full time job.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Lakewood, CA – 9 February 2018
It was an awesome place to work at due to great co-workers. Fun to work at a place that has a little something for the whole family. Unfortunately customers at my location were little too rude sometimes but we all treated them with a smile o our face to help them be happy by the time they left. Apart from that, i enjoyed my stay at Gap and would love to work there again someday, benefits/monthly incentives are great and was flexible to my busy schedule.
bonuses for managers, benefits, employee discounts
Highly customer focused company so you need a passion for customer service in order to succeed. Great team environment. Good benefits.You need to purchase your own uniform but if you enjoy Gap clothing then that shouldn't be an issue.
Sales associate (Former Employee) – Holyoke, MA – 8 February 2018
I worked there as a seasonal employee during Christmas season. It was a little difficult for me to adhere to the dress code, of wearing Gap or Gap similar clothing. That was mainly due to the lack of plus size clothing(they are better now) We received discounts for Gap, Banana Republic and Old Navy. There was no wait time before using the discount. We all had a undesignated, designated area in the parking garage, so all employees who closed the store could exit together, and never walk alone to their vehicles.
sales/cashier/operations/visual specialist (Current Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – 6 February 2018
The general manager compared to my other two retail jobs was a little sub par, but the job isn't very difficult and there is always something to do to occupy you time- whether its refolding clothing or putting go backs up.
I enjoyed working here, good environment and good people
Customer Experience Manager (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – 6 February 2018
Please be ready to help people that is what you are here for! I really liked my job, the clothes are great and most of the customers are great too. Down side is selling of the Gap card and only because its a credit card. The rewards for it are good but I just dont personally care for the credit cards in general. Good work place.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Escondido, CA – 3 February 2018
i have been working there since september and i’m only working 1 day a week, i have asked so many times to get scheduled more and they ignore it. i believe one of the managers has it out for me, just hates me and thinks very low of me, doesn’t give me a chance to show what i can do.
SALES ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – HONG KONG, HK – 3 February 2018
I have been working in Gap for three months. This shop is located in a well-known tourist district and a well-known shopping mall. There are lots of tourists all over the world visit the shop. The workplace is a fun and productive. However, the shop is always ridiculously busy during every weekend and often work under pressure.
Fun and productive workplace
No lunch break even work for a 6 hours shift, Low salary compared to other shops and there are lots of unreasonable annoying policies
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – London – 2 February 2018
A very productive place of work. The colleagues are nice and the management is very understanding towards both professional and personal issues. Overall a great place of work especially for young people looking for part-time work.
Great job for high schoolers/college students/PT adults
Sales Associate/Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Southaven, MS – 31 January 2018
I had a terrible manager at first but at our newest location, the management staff is 100x better. The scheduling is very lenient so you have a nice work/life balance (esp if you are a student) Pay is very decent imo for retail. Discount is great too on top of sales!
Pay is decent for retail, great for a second job, Sales
No benefits unless you are management, hard to move up
