Customer Service Manager & Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 4 December 2017
Great work environment. Great employees and the other managers are very positive and helpful. Every day is different depending on what section of managment you are in and what is going on that day. Overall, i would give the Gap an 8/10
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 December 2017
The people who you work with count the most because they make your shift end faster, other than that it is a very welcoming place to work. Learned many skills such as attention to detail and ways to talk to the public. The hardest part of the job is staying on your feet for a long period of time, but Gap makes sure that you take your breaks and gives you breaks if needed.

I spent a couple months at gap and it was a good time, they treated me fairly and i really felt welcome and it was like a second home. My co workers were very nice and respectful, it was always a nice time working with them and they were funny.
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 21 November 2017
On a consistent basis during a shift, the staff was extremely friendly and respectful within the store. I learned many personal skills such as time management and organization. The workplace was very diverse leading to positivity surround the staff as everyone appreciated each other. Hardest part of the job was working during seasonal seasons such as Christmas, as the workplace becomes very busy. But, with the skills I developed while working with the company, I was able to stay composed and work within the environment. The most enjoyable part is interacting with the many customers who come in and out throughout the day.
I worked seasonal with possibility of becoming permanent. I learned that retail means easy sales and good workplace culture, with the manager easy to approach. The perks are getting insurance, even while working part-time.

CASHIER/SALES ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 7 November 2017
Working at the Gap made me realize how important meeting daily goals is and how to interact and deal with customers. It also showed me how to be a team player and to get along with my co-workers. The best part about working at Gap is the team. The hardest part about working at gap, is the hours and the inconsistency of hours given each week. It is either to short or too long. Other than that, it is a great place to work.
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 November 2017
Everyone at the Gap is very friendly and caring, we all respect each other and enjoy working together as a team. We all continue to work hard to help make the companies goal everyday. Although, I wish we got some sort of benefits with all the hard work we give in.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 26 October 2017
The Gap is a fun workplace with limited hours. Management is somewhat accommodating but will not exceed a certain amount of hours for their staff in retail stores, yet they continuously hire groups of new people to add to already over-staffed store. You will typically receive 3-5 hour shifts. You can expect to be scheduled for about 10 hours a week unless you ask for more or pick up shifts, in which case you'll find it difficult to exceed 15 hrs/week. Pay is standard minimum wage.
There is not much to do, however management will "create" tasks in order to keep you busy, but it does not exceed much more than folding, hanging, and telling customers about store offers. They will watch your cash performance. If you do not get a certain percentage of customer e-mails, it will reflect poor performance, which creates unnecessary stress.
The employee discount is fantastic at about 30% to 40% off on top of promo offers. This discount also extends to Banana Republic and Old Navy, although the percentage off decreases at ON. Staff can range in personality, but they are mostly friendly people.
Short hours, hard to get longer or more frequent hours, often mindless tasks, not much room for advancement
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 24 October 2017
Managers would sit around and talk, nobody worries about the changing rooms, it makes it easy for customers to steal stuff because literally nobody watches them. It's poorly run and could be way better if people actually tried.
The discount off clothes.
Short hours, They dont offer breaks until 15 minutes after your break was supposed to start, You typically have to remind them when your break was. Very slow.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Saint John East, NB – 7 October 2017
The best part about this job, was helping customers find what they needed. The hardest part was, not having enough, staff on the sales floor. The store manager, was hardly ever on the sales floor. The assistant managers, were great except for one being negative most days. Overall my time at the Gap was good.
Senior Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 4 October 2017
Retail in general is a stressful environment. Without the support of your manager it's just no longer bearable, which was the case with me. The best years working at the Gap are when team support is unbreakable and you have coworkers to rely on.
