    I worked at Old Navy part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of friends and cool people in general work there, not too busy but not too light

    Cons

    Waaaay too many employees at the store I was at, almost impossible to get more than 15 hours a week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire less people to allow more hours for those who work there

    I have been working at Old Navy part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Discounts were pretty good, especially when combined with sales.

    Cons

    They only give you three hour shifts, maybe two or three times a week, if that. There really wasn't any formal training, just how to fold clothes and that was pretty much it. You had to find out how to do everything on your own. Cashier training was horrible, they only taught you the basics, not how to open credit cards, and still came down on you for not opening credit accounts. It felt like a competition most of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide formal, standard training that goes beyond just how to fold clothes.

    I have been working at Old Navy part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very fun if you're not looking for a career. Great music. I highly encourage teens to apply. Perfect job for a teen. GREAT discount.

    Cons

    Lack of communication. Very Easy job if you're only in it for the money. The hours can get very crazy. No benefits or PTO for part-time employees. Very hard to advance in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on communication, coach associates, give feedback. Don't let your outside life affect your work ethic. Professionalism is key.

    Great job when starting out, but not enough hours

    Pros

    There is a good work-life balance. Most of the employees are friendly. They have pretty flexible scheduling. Peaceful environment when it is not very busy.

    Cons

    The managers do not get to know you. Employees do not get enough hours (4-12 a week). There is no real room for growth and there is a low salary.

    I worked at Old Navy

    Pros

    The discounts, vacation time, bonus structure and dress code are great. The people you work with are generally nice.

    Cons

    The company is continually trying to reinvent the wheel. Which makes it difficult to get and keep the buy in of all levels of employees. The environment is extremely competitive making it difficult sometimes to form solid relationships with your peers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time understanding how the in store processes and work environment are impacted by the inconsistent messsges and plans from corporate.
