    I have been working at The Gap full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay, they respond well to input about product.

    Cons

    Like most retailers, they have cut hours to a bare minimum. To the point that many stores are under staffed. Also they are far behind the technology curve, increasing the workload for the few employees scheduled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you insist on saving money on payroll, invest in the tools necessary so the payroll cuts have less of an impact on your business at store level.

    I have been working at The Gap full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good health benefits, vacation time was plentiful and accused quickly, and employee discounts program.

    Cons

    Employees were giving direct reports as soon as they were promoted from an assistant level to the next. They were inexperienced managers with out proper guidance. It is very challenging to work under a manager that does not have any management skills and is using you as a chance to learn to manage people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More leadership classes for new managers
