    I worked at Old Navy

    Pros

    Offered flexible work hours and would schedule you for as many hours as you wanted to work.
    Employee discounts were good and you are able to get discounts at all other stores owned by Gap Corp.

    Cons

    You could spend hours folding and straightening clothes only to find a huge mess once you walked away. Not the stores fault, just messy people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I thought the management was fair and promoted a fun atmosphere even when it was late and there was still a huge shipment to go through

    Pros

    Teamwork between coworkers, the sellebrity themselves, and management is great! Gap is also planning on increasing their hourly rate to $10 this year.

    Cons

    Sometimes communication between managers and sales leaders is not that great. There is also a struggle between work/life valance during the holiday season that goes away during the off season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on assigning tasks to sellevrities as a team and not individuals, leading to better communication.

    I have been working at Old Navy part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    My coworkers are very friendly and accepting, and I actually look forward to coming to work every day. It's overall a fun job, you see a lot of people, and get a lot of new experiences. The employee discount is awesome. My boss is the best - very understanding, and she is very flexible when it comes to scheduling.

    Cons

    Customers can be difficult to deal with at times - trying to blame you for things out of your control such as coupons and sales. Also, it gets extremely boring when there are no customers around. But that's the same everywhere.

    I have been working at Old Navy part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Working for Old Navy has been an amazing experience. Management is willing to work around schedules and very kind about any needed time off. I was quickly promoted to a "Cash Handler" which is in charge of closing money at the end of the night. Old Navy likes to hire within and is a great company to be with if you plan to advance from the bottom!

    Cons

    Working with customer can always be difficult. You may need to switch around stores a lot of you plan to make it up the ranks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard to show you truly care about your employees!
