    Great co workers and aura

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe co workers are usually very good to get along with. The customers are usually agreeable as well. The pay is pretty good for retail.

    ConsDepending on the size of your store it can be very difficult to keep the store clean. That was one of the main issues especially when there was under-staffing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement was very effective but every manger seemed to have different methods on going about things and it would help if they were all on the same page.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It was a great environment to work in. The employees were great

    Sales Associate/Cash Handler (Former Employee) Holyoke, MA (US)

    ProsThe best thing about working there is the competitive hours and the discount. Working hard gets your more hours and greater chances for promotion.

    ConsThe worst thing about it is that your not always better at a task than someone else so you may get less hours than them. And set schedules are not available.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would say employee evaluations should be done every 3 to 4 months instead of every year. It gets hard not know where you are as a employees when you work there for so long.

    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.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
