    I have been working at Old Navy

    Pros

    Teamwork between coworkers, the sellebrity themselves, and management is great! Gap is also planning on increasing their hourly rate to $10 this year.

    Cons

    Sometimes communication between managers and sales leaders is not that great. There is also a struggle between work/life valance during the holiday season that goes away during the off season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on assigning tasks to sellevrities as a team and not individuals, leading to better communication.

    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).

    Pros

    Good pay, good offer of much-needed breaks. Also work well with busy schedules.

    Cons

    Lots of standing for 7+ hours at a time, can get tiresome and boring when the day is slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My managers were all kind & understanding. Training was quick and they trusted me with big things- and I was only 16.

    I have been working at Old Navy part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working for Old Navy has been an amazing experience. Management is willing to work around schedules and very kind about any needed time off. I was quickly promoted to a "Cash Handler" which is in charge of closing money at the end of the night. Old Navy likes to hire within and is a great company to be with if you plan to advance from the bottom!

    Cons

    Working with customer can always be difficult. You may need to switch around stores a lot of you plan to make it up the ranks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard to show you truly care about your employees!
