    Advancement if you work hard

    Merchandising Specialist (Current Employee)

    ProsYou can get a lot of hours if you're willing to be the go-to person. It's a relaxed environment, which is something I enjoy. If you work hard, you can advance. It took me two years to get from associate to merchandiser.

    ConsThey are pushy with the credit cards. Management acts like it's still high school.

    Great co-workers, terrible upper management and politics.

    Sellebrity Coach (Former Employee) Idaho Falls, ID (US)

    ProsGreat co-workers, fun activities for store, and customers aren't bad.

    ConsAt my store, upper management all hated each other and there was obvious favoritism. No chances for advancement if not favored by store manager.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate and leave your attitudes at home.

    One of the best jobs I had in my life.

    Old Navy Sales Associate (Former Employee) Westbury, NY (US)

    ProsFlexibilty with work schedule, great managers, discounts on clothes. The work is easy and the customers are friendly. It was a happy environment and I enjoyed going to work. Some of my best friends today are my co-workers I met while working at Old Navy.

    ConsHours can be cut and you may be short handed even on busy days. While you work doing a variety of different types of work the redundancy of the work becomes boring.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a career path for employees who want to grow with the company. Some employees who have worked there for many years feel burned out. If they had more responsibility or had a change in work assignments the company would retain more employees.

    Excellent with People.

    Store Manager (Current Employee) Houma, LA (US)

    ProsExcellent people environment from the Company. Company believes in their Employees and supports their Managers. Flexibility with schedules. Good pay for the job performed.

    ConsToo many younger, inexperienced employees that need a stronger understanding of wisdom in the workforce. Too much drama invoked within the Store and requires a good deal of interaction.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTransition quickly. Take charge and know the procedures inside and out.

    Fun Atmosphere

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMost of the staff make it worth going to work each day. Depending on management, really enjoy going to work each day.

    ConsBad management makes for a rough experience for anyone. Hours aren't the best for young employees or families but they do work around all schedules

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo keep a fun lively environment, make sure managers hired have an upbeat attitude and work well with others.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Murfreesboro, TN (US)

    ProsHours were good...people were nice...great discounts....close to home...flexible hours...

    ConsPeople were warned about shop lifting and told to follow people around. The dressing room had been "pooped" in and I was told that on the first day. I didn't really like that and didn't want to deal with that.
