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

Pros

.Above average pay ( Seasonal was 8.25)
.employees were friendly. not clique-y
.decent discount, around 20%. i can't remember specifically

Cons

.They push you to try to sell. That means telling everyone the promotions, checking up on customers who already said they don't need help and trying to get them to buy, and if someone looks like they're going to buy something they want you to go and say what they're looking at will go great with something else (ex:those jeans would go great with this top!). this was my biggest issue, when people clearly want to be left alone, they want you to keep pestering them.
.even though it was seasonal, i only got a few shifts. probably 3 or 4. they never got around to set me up for their schedule informing system and when i missed a day, i never got a shift after that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

stop making us try to sell everything to customers who want to be left alone.

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

    Pros

    Awesome management. I felt that if I had stayed and worked hard, I could be promoted. My manager was very understanding of scheduling. I felt respected working here by my boss and coworkers.

    Cons

    recite RIDICULOUSLY long special promotion every time you pick up phone
    so many promotions it's hard to keep track
    outdated registers
    unrealistic staffing = perpetual messy sales floor
    getting people to sign up for credit cards is never easy
    rude customers (but hey, that's retail)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and schedule more staff to help maintain the store! The place was always a dump, even if you had a couple sales associates cleaning up during a shift. The registers are outdated, and sometimes doing simple cashier tasks are unnecessarily difficult.
