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 ManagementAdvice

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 have been working at Old Navy part-time for 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.

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

    Pros

    Got along well with the team, managers knew the strengths/weaknesses of employees and assigned tasks accordingly

    Cons

    Very fast paced, store can get very messy very fast due to high volume of customers, hard to get a lot of working hours per week due to high number of employees
