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

Pros

The people and the discount are the only reasons to work here. Made many friends. 25% off regular price items for Old Navy, 50% off at the Gap.

Cons

Prepare to deal with angry and rude customers, shoplifters, and internal theft issues. The hours they put you through during the holidays are awful. Black Friday I worked from 11pm to 8:30am with only a 30 minute break. I had to beg for a bathroom break after 5 hours of constant standing at the cashwrap ringing out customers.

Advice to Management

Back your employees; no one should have to be verbally abused by customers (usually over company policy of which the employee has no control).

    I worked at Old Navy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits for full time employees. Very competitive wages.

    Cons

    Expectation that you work 60+ hours a week to get your job done. Store manager spent her day in the office calling all the other store managers in the market complaining about how terrible her managers were. Market leader completely clueless about how this manager lead through fear. I had many co-workers that would work off the clock to try to get the job done just so they wouldn't be ridiculed and demeaned by the store manager.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes, store managers are in the position they are in because they talk a good game but they don't necessarily have the leadership skills needed to run a complex store like Old Navy.
