Current Employee - Sales Associate  in  Brooklyn, NY
Current Employee - Sales Associate in Brooklyn, NY

Pros

Everyday is the same routine when entering. You must clock in and then go straight to your LOD. here they will let you know what sales and promotions are going on and what is our goal by the end of the day. Either opening a specific amount of gap cards and how much money we have to make.

Co workers are great to get along with. Managers are very respectable people since they know how your working. The discount is AWESOME! Plus you get a discount at Banana Republic & Old Navy

Cons

The pressure to open gap cards. During holidays, it gets super messy and crazy. Some customers aren't too nice. After holidays, hours are cut.

    Pros

    I really appreciated the amount of training they provided to their store managers and sales associates. They trained the teams very well on customer service and selling skills. Also they provided a good amount of product knowledge to support the ability to sell the product.

    Cons

    6 different District Managers in 5 years! There were some benefits to this though as the DMs that weren't very strong didn't last long, and I was able to learn something from each of their different management styles, but it made it challenging for long term growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overlook strong, consistent performers.

    Former Employee - Old Navy (Corporate Office) in San Francisco, CA

    Pros

    great store/brand discounts
    good stock plan

    Cons

    no career advancement support within company from department leaders.
    negligent on taking appropriate action regarding misconduct between employees.
    cannot trust peers.
    very cliquish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say to constantly keep your ears and eyes open because all is not what it seems. Support the growth of employees in department or to move cross-functionally to better their careers and interests. Take an ethical and serious stand regarding situations that are brought to your attention regarding unjust treatment.
