    I worked at Old Navy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have Great employee discounts at all brands and very good health benefits

    Cons

    No work life balance. You really need to work a lot of hrs to get things done so the store looks good. You need to make up for the lack of payroll dollars

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change store hrs. On thanksgiving. More payroll. Less dog and pony shows for upper management.

    I worked at Old Navy part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of hours. Seasonal employment was good for getting my foot in the door for other jobs. Good employee discount for Old Navy, Gap, and Banana Republic.

    Cons

    Spent many nights recovering store until 3AM, even the night before finals. Unrealistic expectations for clean up after holidays. Many employees had to find shortcuts around fixing everything up. Typical management favoritism. Forgot to give me an end of the season lay off letter. Didn't know I didn't work there anymore until I stopped being scheduled. Awkward because Old Navy isn't even an ex-boyfriend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train better. Don't assign just one person to two different departments and expect everything to get done. Treat all employees equally and not as disposable because they are seasonal.

    I worked at Old Navy part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    .Above average pay ( Seasonal was 8.25)
    .employees were friendly. not clique-y
    .decent discount, around 20%. i can't remember specifically

    Cons

    .They push you to try to sell. That means telling everyone the promotions, checking up on customers who already said they don't need help and trying to get them to buy, and if someone looks like they're going to buy something they want you to go and say what they're looking at will go great with something else (ex:those jeans would go great with this top!). this was my biggest issue, when people clearly want to be left alone, they want you to keep pestering them.
    .even though it was seasonal, i only got a few shifts. probably 3 or 4. they never got around to set me up for their schedule informing system and when i missed a day, i never got a shift after that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop making us try to sell everything to customers who want to be left alone.
