I have been working at Old Navy full-time

Pros

There is a focus on people, constant development. Fun, upbeat environment. Stable work environment. Great benefits, medical, dental, vision, 401k, stock options, 4 weeks Paid Time Off to start. Part of Gap Inc, which gives you many transfer options if necessary.

Cons

Limited job growth without relocation, up to 20 miles from current location depending on next level position. High turn over for part time associates due to low hours/pay. Retail hours, especially during the holidays. Expect to work every holiday except Christmas. Work life balance is very limited October through January. No sick time, all built into PTO. Sometimes need to use PTO when hours are limited due to sales. Upper management changes every year.

Advice to Management

Payroll budgets too low to run a store properly. Most stores run on 75% of required staff due to this. Smaller sores have as low as 3 sellebrities (staff) closing, which doesn't allow for the service and neat/organized expectations set forth. Weekly sale events can get too gimicky, customers do not care about the funny names for the sale, they just want a good deal. The fun factor such as balloons just detract from actually selling. Maintain upper field leaders more than a couple years, too much reorganization.

    I worked at Old Navy part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work if you love clothes and a fun work environment. Flexible work schedules and time off if you ask in advance. Great for students.

    Cons

    Holidays, summers and weekends can be stressful due to an increase in customers but that just comes with working in retail. Pay is just above minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Please calm down with the ONC and email demands. The hours of operation are a bit extreme during holidays. Since Gap Inc. prides itself on being a family store, it should respect the employees time during holidays.

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

    Pros

    the people are great, there are lots of incentives and bonuses for opening credit accounts. there is plenty of opportunity for advancement from within if you prove worthy. you will gain mountains of retail knowledge and be trained across many areas of the retail process. nice discount on merchandise, especially if you use it with the right sales.

    Cons

    the hours can be crappy, especially shipment. it comes at 4:30-5 am. there are no bonuses available for the shipment team and there is no real incentive to do it, as you are required to process an absurd amount of product in a very short time, making the same amount of money as the person who farts around in the fitting room during normal human business hours.
