    I worked at Old Navy part-time

    Pros

    Leniency in scheduling; most likely can get requested time off. Fellow co-workers will likely dislike the managers as much as you.

    Cons

    Poorly trained workers, especially new hires. Workers are trained for a day and then thrown into set positions on some of the busiest store days causing agitation amongst co-workers and customers.

    The managers are some of the most annoying and unprofessional managers I have ever worked with. It literally seems like they're freshmen in college (at least that's how they act) and everyone is out to seek an ego boost. Not very likable.

    Advice to Management

    Hire older and more approachable managers. Properly train new hires before letting them work without full supervision.

    I have been working at Old Navy part-time

    Pros

    I have worked with Old Navy for 7 years both part time and full time and can honestly say this has been an amazing opportunity. When I was ready to move up to full time status they made that possible and when I had to step down due to personal reasons they were very understanding.

    Cons

    With all retail companies, the only major con is scheduling. Working nights and weekends when you'd rather be with friends and family is never fun.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, we really appreciate all of the hard work you put in to make the business going.

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

    Pros

    They hired me at 16 with limited availability and no work experience. I had a hectic schedule and could go weeks without working sometimes. At other jobs I could have gotten fired, but here it was fine, which was nice.

    Cons

    A lot of people seemed to feel like they didn't get enough hours, and they were supporting families. The pay raises I received for "above average performance" were about the rate of inflation, and effectively not a raise.

    Advice to Management

    You were a great first job. Thank you! Just keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Flexible hours, meet great people, and the customers (good ones) make it worth it! The anniversary gifts and pins are pretty cool!!!

    Cons

    During slower season a lot of shifts get cut, so be prepared for very small checks and possibly looking for additional income if this your only job!!

    Advice to Management

    Train the new associates!!!!

    I have been working at Old Navy part-time

    Pros

    The managers are very understanding and flexible with hours. You get acknowledged for your great performance.

    Cons

    Part time until you earn the full time position which can take a while. Because some employees are under eighteen immaturity occurs sometimes. A lot of rude comments are said among most staff member from sales associates to managers.

    Advice to Management

    I advise management to be more respectful and considerate of associates.
