Pros

You meet people from all walks of life, co-workers are really fun to be around and you're always busy! The Employee discounts are great and their high work standards create good work ethic.

Cons

It can get pretty crazy when there sales and during the holiday season. Opening ONC's!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of constantly wanting more out of the good employees, learn how to push the less than satisfactory ones harder.

    I have been working at Old Navy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mostly good co-workers. Good discount. Pay isn't bad for retail.

    Cons

    Store managers have no checks or balances to their authority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We know it was a cost saving method but make the return to districts. Our market leader is virtually non-existent due to the immense territory they must cover.

    Old Navy is the most horrible company I have ever worked for in my 18 years of Retail Experience...

    Pros

    *Managers are well versed in "action planning"
    *You will learn to get rid of "bad Employees" by cutting their hours or making them miserable until they get frustrated and quit.
    *Assistant Managers can perform "miracles" in their merchandising and such, especially before a corporate store visit.
    *You will be devoted to your job, who needs work/life balance...Love not having a life outside of work!

    Cons

    *Company direction constantly changing...
    *Really great managers are lost to other companies due to being overworked and underpaid while enduring unrealistic expectations.
    *Too many promotional changes and too much of a focus on robotically repeating promotions to customers that can clearly read the sale signs for themselves.
    *The expectation to push customers into applying for an Old Navy Credit Card with its ridiculous interest rate.

    I could go on and on, but I am sure you get the general idea...
