    I worked at Old Navy (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work environment. Everyone is friendly. Hours are Flexible. Discounts are nice. Same company as Gap and Banana Republic

    Cons

    There is a lot of standing up. You are not allowed to sit down. i have to pretend I was checking something if I wanted to take a break to sit down.

    Advice to Management

    Management is pretty good. I don't know what else to suggest. Keep doing what you guys are doing. Definitely is a great company


  2. Great team, limited freedom

    I have been working at Old Navy full-time

    Pros

    Work across teams is fun. People respect each other's contribution to a job well done. Over-achievers who motivate you to be your best. The output of the teams is remarkable, and people are always so friendly and fun to work with. The people you work with and the output you create make your job worth it.

    Cons

    Leadership calls all the shots and disregards your input. They have no respect for how much work and time you put into your job to be successful and they continue to ask for more. They have their hands on every detail up to the last minute, creating added work. It's not sustainable management.

    Advice to Management

    Respect balance. Don't be afraid to trust your team and let them handle responsibilities. Giving accolades for hard work gets old when you just keep asking for more. Try taking action to show your team members you appreciate what they do for the company. HIRE MORE PEOPLE!

    I worked at Old Navy part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great job for students looking to work part time. Very easy to learn everything. Interview and application process was easy and short. Every store I've worked at has had a great management team that becomes friends. Also have a great employee discount that is good at Banana Republic and Gap too.

    Cons

    Hours can be low depending on how business is going.

    I worked at Old Navy part-time

    Pros

    I truly enjoyed working for Old Navy. My fellow employees were good people and we worked well as a team. You must be patient and able to work well w/ others and assist people from all walks of life. Some days are more interesting than others. Overall, I recommend Old Navy highly.

    Cons

    If you are not a patient person, then maybe retail isn't for you. Holidays are crazy!!! You have to be quick and on it.
