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

    Pros

    Great discount..
    ( I have to enter more than five words.. So here you go. )

    Cons

    I applied for full time and they put me in for seasonal.
    I told them my availability was for a specific time and they didn't respect that.
    The hours I would work in a day at some other place they would give me for the week.
    They hire too much people and don't have enough hours for anybody.
    15 minute breaks !
    They expect you to knock out the whole store in two seconds and fold great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees work hard, extend the break, and raise the pay and hours.

    I worked at Old Navy part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company makes your job fun. The best time are around holiday season.

    Cons

    Some managers play favorites.
    Getting promoted is hard. Seemed like you only got an offer if you were friends with management outside of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what best for the company not worry about your friendships with the associates.

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

    Pros

    Flexibilty with work schedule, great managers, discounts on clothes. The work is easy and the customers are friendly. It was a happy environment and I enjoyed going to work. Some of my best friends today are my co-workers I met while working at Old Navy.

    Cons

    Hours can be cut and you may be short handed even on busy days. While you work doing a variety of different types of work the redundancy of the work becomes boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a career path for employees who want to grow with the company. Some employees who have worked there for many years feel burned out. If they had more responsibility or had a change in work assignments the company would retain more employees.
