    I have been working at Gap part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment in terms of the work load is not too much and there are friendly like-minded people who work there. Management seems to treat everyone fairly.

    Cons

    Not always given the same opportunity to learn new skills such as hemming/embroidery.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great to have consistent shifts and for the rota to come out earlier. Also, please give us our contracted hours. Some of us can't always work extra hours/overtime when it best suits you. Apparently the new company policy is that you have to be flexible up to extra 4 hours from your contract hours, it would be nice to see where this is outlined in the contract rather than taking someones word from it.

    I worked at Gap part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The team there was really friendly; everyone knew each other and were on good terms. Easy talking to managers about problems and issues, they were very understanding. Flexibility to swap shifts at a short notice was always a plus, managers always helped to work it out. Most customers were friendly but you got the odd few. Really nice working there as my first job at 16.

    Cons

    The weekly schedules were random, and there was no set shifts most of the time. I did although work a Thursday evening shift for 4 months. Sometimes the schedules would come out 3 days before the week or sometimes 2 months in advance so a bit unreliable but easy to work around. A bit annoying about how management continuously asked us to ask customers for emails to reach targets so sometimes we would have to make... the emails up.
