Director (Former Employee) – San Bruno, CA – 13 February 2012
Strong company struggling to maintain and regain leadership in the specialty retail feel. Sometimes too much effort put into getting everyone to buy into an idea while not moving forward with much needed change. Strong ethics and great people make the culture good.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 16 August 2017
I enjoyed my time with Gap, they taught me everything I needed to know to survive in retail, while providing me with a great place to learn and excel. The managers were great and always super helpful. Made lots of friends there and we had a great time together. Just as any retail job it got quite repetitive at the end, but overall it is a great beginner job and it's very possible to keep rising up within the company.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 1 August 2017
The store was full of lively employees, fun to be around. Work mostly consisted of organizing clothes and trying to satisfy customers. The hardest part of the job is talking to the customers, but the job later helped me overcome the fear of interacting with the customers. Work was overall enjoyable because of the supportive coworkers.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 July 2017
Typical day at work is fun and exciting since we usually have sales goals to meet. I improved my communication skills by working in this job. THe management is good but sometimes becomes too sales oriented.
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 25 July 2017
Great place to work, fun and productive. Something new is always going on, so it keeps you on your toes. Every day is not the same, so there's always something new, but after a while you get used to the daily pattern and flow.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – heartland – 14 July 2017
Go onto work, wait at the back, clock in, go on sales floor, clean the store, the schedule they send you isnt what you will be doing mostly. breaks are not always given on time. Come back from break, work till you leave, not alot of socializing allowed.
Free bfast and lunch during long days with big sales events
Merchandise Assistant (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 10 July 2017
Working environment is very stress full, very weird when you stuck with the same duty all day, no rotations between departments during the shift, preference only goes to Punjabi ladies employees for light weight work and easy job.
Sale Associate (Former Employee) – Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON – 29 June 2017
Very play by the book, everything merchandising related needed to be perfect, which is difficult when you're unable to receive product needed. Management had a lot of stress on them, which they of course put onto the employees, regional management was made up to be scary and unfriendly. Work place was sometimes hectic but was a good atmosphere most of the time. Budgets were given to 'spoil' employees, but only when sales goals are achieved.
Fun work environment, works well for students or part time employees
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 June 2017
Loved working at GAP! Great employees and management staff who share a culture of fashion and customer service. The role of sales associate involves learning the product and being able to connect with the clients who walk in the door every day. Great for someone looking for part time work, and who has a lot of energy and personality to join an energetic and vibrant company. They are very accommodating for students, and flexible hours (ex. night shifts vs day shifts)
