    I worked at Old Navy part-time

    Pros

    Fun and comfortable working environment.

    Cons

    Lack of communication on the managers part cost me my job. I was seasonal, and was asked to change hours of availability. After I did, I have been calling to try to get a hold of the store manager to get more hours and to find out if I was promoted to sellibrity sales associate. Weeks later, I had to go up their myself and learn that my store manager rejected my hours, because I could not work on the weekends. My availability was from M-F 7am-11pm. Needless to say I was very upset. I love working at Old Navy but the managers will ruin things for you. Even if you have stayed on top of them about things you need to know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication skills to new employees.

    Pros

    one hour lunch breaks, has the capability to be a fun work environment. Laid back company, great multi company discounts.

    Cons

    under qualified management, unappreciated workers, lack of diversity, ridiculous scheduling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to qualifications over seniority. Just because someone has been with the company for several years...does not make them automatic candidates for management positions!
