Company Overview

About Gap Inc. 

Doris and Don Fisher opened the first Gap store in 1969. The reason was simple. Don couldn’t find a pair of jeans that fit. They never expected to transform retail. But they did. Guided by humility, compassion and a strong desire to win, the Fishers grew their company thoughtfully. Customers responded. Today, Gap Inc. is a leading international specialty retailer with seven brands – almost 3,200 stores and more than 150,000 employees. We’re growing globally, and just within the last few years, we opened our first stores in China and Italy. We're expanding online shopping to customers, too. Today, customers in about 90 countries can buy our products. While many things have changed since 1969, the principles on which we were founded have stayed the same: creativity, delivering results, doing what’s right and always thinking of our customers first.

Our past is full of iconic moments — but our future is going to spark many more. Our brands — Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta, INTERMIX, Hill City and Janie and Jack have dressed people from all walks of life and all kinds of families, all over the world, for every occasion.

If you're one of the super-talented individuals who are full of ideas, aren't afraid to take risks and love to make a difference, come grow with us!
