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

    Pros

    - Employee discount
    -Some of the greatest co-workers I have had the opportunity to work with.

    Cons

    -No room for growth within company.
    -Bad management. They pick favourites. Giving lots of hours only to certain people.
    - Management threatens to not pay employees on time and cut shifts.
    -Some managers are extremely lazy and just sit in the back room gossiping about staff and others managers.
    -No hours.
    -Claim to have open door policy but use scare tactics so no one will come forward with issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better management team that is willing to work together and not just sit in the back rooms on there phones gossiping.

    Pros

    Managers and employees are all amazing. Offers flexible schedules. Employee discount is great.

    Cons

    At times, getting scheduled for shifts as a part time sales associate is difficult; However, it is understandable when business is slow (especially after the winter holidays).

    I have been working at Old Navy

    Pros

    -Flexible hours
    -Opportunity for promotion to management if you have the availability

    It is easy to book time off if you need to. Generally it's a fun place to work and it's easy to make friends with the people you work with. There are often opportunities to apply for management positions, and they will be willing to train you for those positions if you ask. Employees who perform well will get longer shifts and more hours. It is very easy to organize work at Old Navy with a school schedule.

    Cons

    -Low pay
    -Few hours
    -Very small yearly raises
    -Will not provide reference

    Minimum wage is the base pay. Sometimes you may be hired on with a few cents difference ($11.35 as opposed to $11). The hours are very sporadic. Three hour shifts are common for new employees, or when they don't have many hours to give out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the managers, speak one on one to employees more often about employee morale, and how they feel about their workplace.

    I worked at Old Navy

    Pros

    Flexibility. This was crucial when I was in school.

    Cons

    Gave my two weeks notice after I was offered a salary position for what I went to school for. After 4 years of working there (2 years at an amazing location, 2 years at a not so good location -- after recent management change). The manager had the audacity to say I never gave notice and embaressed me infront of everyone. Rolled his eyes and criticised me. SORRY FOR ACTUALLY TRYING TO IMPROVE MY LIFE and go for a career in my field. Miserable management, I feel sorry for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont stay in your offices all day. Make your employees feel like they are on the same level as you.
