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.

    Pros

    Fast pace workplace. Great people to work with. Great product to sell and very easy to work there. Fun store to work at with lots of great events.

    Cons

    Must be willing to be part of the group. Mangers tend to have favorites if you are not one you will not get any hours.
