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

Pros

I've worked for Old Navy for about a year and it's been a fairly positive experience. Management is sure to give you breaks on time, and the breaks are longer than in other retail. You get a great discount at all three brands. Environment is generally friendly and upbeat.

Cons

The pay is quite low, close to minimum wage. I've received training to diversify my place at work, but no compensation to match - very disappointed. Like most retail, you have a lot of hours around the holidays, but many Old Navys are also open Thanksgiving Day as well. Hours can be hard to come by and my schedule changes every week.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward exemplary employees with more hours and a pay raise.

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

    Pros

    The environment is great. The associates I get to work with are awesome. They are the only reason I look forward to coming to work.

    Cons

    Short shifts. Not getting scheduled as often as when I first got hired. Some managers don't think associates know what they are doing, no matter how long they've been with the company. There are points where associates feel they are being talked down to by some of the managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the employees you already have. They are always looking for more hours, but yet you go and hire more people. Then those of us who have been with the company for years get the short end of the stick.

    Three years.... Not much to say. Go for it if you need a first job to get yourself some experience.

    I have been working at Old Navy part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Simple
    No one gets fired(seasonal people just stop getting scheduled)

    Cons

    Uninterested management
    No place for advancement
    Little room for substantial raises
    Very little motivation for anything other than Old Navy Card acquisition, which doesn't really benefit associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get into your job. Love it. If you don't love it, quit- and then someone like me can take your position and add some passion to it. Recognize your strong , dedicated associates and USE them. Don't let the people that call out and act sick all the time get more shifts than the motivated associates because you pity them or whatever.
