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

Pros

-My management team is very nice, they know the ins and outs of their job and are great teachers/leaders
-Hours
-Discount at GAP (50%)
-Breaks
-You can wear pretty much anything you want to work, but look presentable

Cons

-Trying to get customers to apply for Old Navy Cards. Let's be real, no one wants to apply for a credit card in this terrible economy. Sometimes the managers make up incentives off the top of their heads just to get customers to apply, which I think is wrong. (i.e. we'll have a coupon that has been sent out by e-mail/mail that ANYONE can easily get, but the managers try to get us to get people to apply for cards by using these discounts they could have easily attained without applying for the card)
-Trying to complete your task on time, while trying to assist customers at the same time. Then the managers get mad at you when our customer ratings are down. It's not realistic.
-The clearance section gets slammed, it needs to be better organized!
-One week you'll work like 2 days a week, the next week you'e on schedule to work everyday.
-Trying to find coverage for a shift.
-Getting paid every two weeks. For a college students, this sucks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No one wants to apply for an Old Navy Card, sorry!

    Pros

    Only physically taxing, big discount, flexible, good co-workers usually

    Cons

    Mind-numbing, exhausting, demotivating, overly-enthusiastic management, defeated co-workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that clothing is not meant to be on a 3 month cycle, that mass production and low quality outsourced production is the wrong for of globalization and quality is everything. so quit and don't settle for less
