Pros

Employee discount at Old Navy, Gap, and Banana Republic
Fun work environment
Diverse work and employees
Flexible hours

Cons

Pushing Old Navy credit cards- This was by far the worst part of the job. You have to get a certain number of people to open Old Navy credit cards, which are a huge scam. If you don't open enough accounts, your managers will continually harass you. We actually had a list of people who didn't have enough hanging in the break room. So inappropriate.
Underqualified management- Seemingly everyday one of the managers was running around the store like a chicken with their head cut off and looked to be in over their head. One had a panic attack right on the store floor during shipment.
Rude/angry customers

Advice to Management

Chill out about the Old Navy credit cards. If you get your employees so worked up about opening credit card accouts, it makes it difficult to focus on other aspects of the job, like customer service! And, your credit cards have horrible terms & conditions, so it is hard to feel good about persuading someone to open one.

    Pros

    Old Navy is focused on our core customers and bringing them product at a great price. I've learned how to multi-task and be flexible as we can quickly turn around events.

    Cons

    Because we have the ability to turn around events and sales quickly, strategic changes occur very frequently. This can often be viewed as not having a clear and concise strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Work at keeping those on the ground floor engaged , giving them plenty of support with defined roles and responsibilites and a voice to be heard.
