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

    Pros

    You get discounts to old navy, the gap and banana republic. The music played is upbeat. During big promotions, you usually get a staff tee shirt, which you can then use as a gym shirt later!

    Cons

    Hours can vary widely, managers often give the most hours to those who sign up the most people for an Old Navy card, however, if I'm only working 10 hours a week, how am I supposed to get as many opportunities?

    I have been working at Old Navy part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've been working since high school and I am now a college graduate, and my hours have varied from part time to full time, to once a week, one a month even once every 90 days. They are very flexible with hours and I was cross trained in every department which made me a very versatile employee. I have been with the company for 6 years.

    Cons

    The pay was never that great up until this summer when they changed the starting rate to $9 which I was already making more than that at the time but because I'd already been working for 5 years. Back in 2008 I was hired at $7.25 and in a span of 5 years am now at $9.79. Now I have a full time job related to my college degree and work once a month at old navy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, they were always great and I've had at least 5 different store managers ranging from 2 different stores I've worked at.
