    I was promoted to ops. manager. The store I'm at now is a disaster. Beware of inexperienced store managers.

    Operations Manager (Current Employee) Burbank, CA

    ProsIt can be a fun environment if you work with pleasant coworkers.

    ConsThere is no work-life balance if you are a supervisor/manager.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The way a business should run

    Sellebrity (Current Employee) Westminster, CA

    ProsOld Navy is very professional and everyone follows the rules. The employees are always excited and very fun to work with. And there's always motivation to work hard and give great customer service.

    ConsThe only con I can think of is the lack of hours, but it is the slow season and it is going to pick back up closer to summer in a month or so.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work! This company is great and a lot of fun! I actually WANT to come to work :)

    Fun Environment but Too Focused on Revenue

    Sellebrity (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsAmazing coworkers
    relaxed workplace
    25% off the store and 50% off of Gap and Banana Republic merchandise

    ConsCorporate treats you like a number (Your performance is based on how many people you sign up for credit cards over anything else)
    virtually no room for promotion

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf an employee is assigned to the sales floor for their whole shift, judge them by the quality of their shops and how many customers they helped rather than how many Old Navy cards they got people to sign up for.

    Positive and fun!

    Seasonal Sellebrity (Current Employee) Westminster, CA

    ProsDiscounts (including the Gap, Banana Republic, and other stores they partnered with), the employees, really fun environment! There's contests and other incentives for employees. We can dress in association with certain sales/events, example: this weekend there was a huge sale on pajamas so we were urged to wear pajamas, we are urged to wear a red shirt we own or the one they handed out for black Friday every weekend through the holidays. Is a lot of fun, I love working here!

    ConsNot to much to complain about, maybe I'll be writing another review in a few months. I guess I'd have to say lack of hours (I am seasonal for now, that may change if they keep me and my performance or seniority) & recovering sections (especially holiday time it gets really messy and go-backs are ridiculous).

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer me a leader position in a month or 2!!! I know you won't know who I am but I'm gonna put that thought out there.
