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

    Pros

    Fantastic discounts.
    Love my team!
    Can move up with time, luck, and some good ol' brown nosing.

    Cons

    Unrealistic sales goals.
    Pressure to push for credit cards.
    More "on-call" rather than part-time.
    Often relying on picking up shifts during the slow months.
    Frequent transfers of managers. Once you get acquainted, they're off to another store.
    Pressure to not get another job, although there is never enough hours on payroll to give everyone at least 15 hrs a week.

    Advice to Management

    Stop fighting with one another and competing for each other's jobs.
    Show your associates appreciation.
    Allow everyone an opportunity for growth.

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

    Pros

    Lots of hours. Seasonal employment was good for getting my foot in the door for other jobs. Good employee discount for Old Navy, Gap, and Banana Republic.

    Cons

    Spent many nights recovering store until 3AM, even the night before finals. Unrealistic expectations for clean up after holidays. Many employees had to find shortcuts around fixing everything up. Typical management favoritism. Forgot to give me an end of the season lay off letter. Didn't know I didn't work there anymore until I stopped being scheduled. Awkward because Old Navy isn't even an ex-boyfriend.

    Advice to Management

    Train better. Don't assign just one person to two different departments and expect everything to get done. Treat all employees equally and not as disposable because they are seasonal.
