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

    Pros

    benefits, pay, bonus structure, fun store environment, people

    Cons

    work-life balance, lack of leadership and development
    Old Navy can get very complicated in that there is a lot of black/white and not a lot of grey area. It's right or wrong, there's very few times when you have room to feel like you can "do what's right" and not get questioned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the field, constant promo changes are confusing to everyone, including the customer. Favoritism makes it impossible for new people to come in and make the store their own.

    Pros

    Old Navy is a very friendly environment, and the staff there is welcoming and encouraging. The job gives you discipline and responsibility to do your part for the store.

    Cons

    Always a shortage on staff. Late nights usually exceed 10 o'clock. A lot of employees don't do their job correctly and it effects others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that they shouldn't only praise the people who get old navy cards all the time. I work hard on the salesfloor to make sure people enjoy their time at old navy and find what they need. They need to appreciate us more as sales associates and all the hard work we really do.

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

    Pros

    For being retail most start at a min of 8/hr and that is pretty decent compared to some places....not not enough to really pay the bills unless you live with your parents but doable. The average shift is 4 hrs so it is a great place to work for students and/or those who want just a side gig.

    Cons

    Not great for growth in the workplace from personal experience. Only FT jobs for those in management
