Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – London – 14 June 2018
I liked the job for the pay and it was straightforward but retail was a job I found very dull as it consisted of folding clothes and running up the stairs to the stock room to constantly search for customer's sizes that we did not have 70-80% of the time.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Newport – 27 May 2018
This job was extremely fun, the colleagues were very friendly and they treated everyone with respect. I've learnt and developed many skills such as customer service skills, communication skills, teamwork skills and so on. The management was great, the hardest part of the job would be the replenishing of the sotre where we had to recover all the clothes and tidy the whole store up, it took a while but we got there in the end. The most enjoyable part of the Job would be serving at the till because that's when you interact with many customers.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Watford – 18 May 2018
I enjoyed working at GAP. A typical day at work was busy, I was nonstop working whether it was folding clothes or working at the tills I was always doing something. I learnt how to reprice items of clothing and how to tag items of clothing. the hardest part of the job was when not everyone was working on a busy day as there is a lot to do and a lot of areas to manage and keep presentable. I loved seeing what new clothing came in with the orders.
Floor Manager/Supervisor/Visual Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Covent Garden, Greater London – 13 May 2018
Over all working for Gap has been a journey, I've made life long friends, met customers who I've built relationships with but on the other hand it can be stressful. The most enjoyable part of the Job was meeting new people/customers.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Livingston, West Lothian – 10 May 2018
While working her during the week of the work experience from Armadale Academy i got to interact with a wide range of customers and be in a fast paced environment while restocking the shelves and keeping the shop floor clean and tidy and risk free.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Trafford Centre, Greater Manchester – 2 May 2018
I don't have any hatred towards GAP, but the environment and way they manage their stores is horrific.
I would say working at GAP in The Trafford Centre made me value politeness and consideration in people so much more than I ever would; I suppose that's typical for retail.
The employees were delightful and made the job bearable, though the poor management and turn over of staff was tough. The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be how DEAD the store gets on Men's floor, so when you get sent up there from women's floor, you get to put your legs up for a little bit.
I learned a great deal about customer service which is a great help for when you apply to other jobs which you have to deal with the average citizen.
Overall, you have good days and bad days. Most of them bad. I wouldn't recommend working in The Trafford Centre if you're going to do retail, let alone GAP.
Depot Manager (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 24 April 2018
Felt that I was just there to babysit the staff with to many Head managers getting involved.If they Regionals and Area sales managers let the depot mangers run the depot then more results would happen within sales and less staff turn over.
SALES ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – London – 31 March 2018
The hours were very long and tiring. I learned social and communication skills. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the disrespectful customers and cleaning the mess they would make sometimes. The most enjoyable part was the discounts on clothing I would get.
NO sense of relation between managers and employees
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Oxford Street, Greater London – 29 March 2018
Gap taught me that if there is no relation ship between the workforce within the shop then there will be no reaching the targets, if managers won't work together with employees then there will be bad sales

Fast paced and changing daily. Driving a large team to achieve and smash sales targets. Accountable for all aspects of P&L to ensure store is profitable. Additional district accountabilities include managing South District Payroll (15 stores), ER Champ, deputising for DM
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.
