I'd have happily volunteered if they had offered me an option before the company started laying people off. I know a lot of people who'd love to be paid to leave this mess so I know for a fact I wouldn't have been the only one to jump at this... — read more
Start applying for jobs right now whether you were laid off or not. I know some of you feel like you might need a week or two to recover but I wouldn't wait. The job market is still good but it won't stay like that for long. Jump in before it's too... — read more

Just heard that GAP's TA team has faced some layoffs. They have been today today and given 2 weeks notice. Don't know how many
With Ye pulling out on Gap, an ousted CEO, a stock price hovering at $9, employees that refuse to return to the office, they are left with a stale brand. Layoffs are imminent in the next month. Old Navy & Athleta rumored to be sold.
At least Gap fired one of its toxic directors in Stores Systems for some repeated bullying of his own team. Not enough unfortunately to combat my ever shrinking faith in the CEO.
Due to missed Q2 earnings - Gap Inc and all brands have been asked by the board to begin company-wide cost optimization including but not limited to headcount reduction, store closures, etc.
I always get nervous when there's talk about spinoffs, especially if it's my own area. I'm in Athleta and I'm worried that if activist investors are pushing for a spinoff, it will come with major cuts since they're all about maximizing cost savings... — read more

What happens to those employees? I’ve never experienced a store closure (thankfully) but I am curious as to what happens to those employees? Are they given an option to transfer to another location? If they choose to remain until the end are they... — read more

Retail has been decimated in the past several years and the pandemic is just finishing off what's left. Gap was once a giant and now it's just a shadow of its former self. I think the stores they announced would be closing in the next few years are... — read more

So let's think about this. Gap is glorifying and collaborating with Kanye, a man who proudly bragged about stealing from a Gap Store when he was a teenager. A man who thinks he is the second coming of Christ. An egomaniac who clothes have no... — read more

Stores have started reopening all around the country, it's just a matter of time before we are going to follow suit. So why have layoffs now? What's the point?
Sad but true. Just when we think things are getting better, they do this to us. Could be more next week.

Sounds like they're decentralizing much of the HQ efforts. Not efficient or effective. Theyll continue to burn through the cash in no time.

I work for an online call center and got an email that top execs were accepting lower pay... All of this as a result of COVID-19. GAP is actually a good company and doing the very best in a horrible situation
If Don Fisher was still alive they would be paying people. I worked at that company almost 20 years. Not the same now. I'm sure all exec's are still being paid. People cant even get onto the sights first unemployment. Shame on them they could... — read more
