Quand on est ancien, travailler chez old Navy c'est super. On peut facilement négocier nos horaires et avoir les congés qu'on veux. Par contre, être nouveau chex old Navy, c'est toujours être au même poste pendant tout notre shift (ex: au cabine d'essaye toute la journée, car personnes d'autre voulait le faire). Eêtre nouveau c'est avoir les shift soit tôt le matin ou tard le soir, et être quasiment temps pleins quand tu as demandée temps partiel. La diversité de l'équipe est superber et l'énergie dezs employées est aussi superbe. Une équipe dynamique et sympatique. Parfois laissé à nous même quand on a un problème, et très peu de formation au début.

Good Opportunity to learn but really overwhelming

I worked as a Product Operations Lead. Lots of things are expected from you. You need to be always charged up as they provide limited hours for every task. It will be a nice experience if someone likes fast paced environment. The company needs to provide more hours or should hire enough people so that the job doesn't become too stressful.

Fun first job!

Old Navy is a great place to work at for a first job. The managers were friendly and understanding of your schedule but the availability requirements are a bit excessive. Really great team of coworkers, everyone is really fun to be around! Focused on customer service instead of pushing for the sale which is nice.

Points positifs

Coworkers are great, usually don’t schedule out of your availability, not pressured to make sales

Points négatifs

Availability requirement, unpredictable hours

"We are like a family"

Honeslty in the beginning it was fun and okay later on the managers changed and became really stuck up, they sceduale you whenever and god forbid you actually have an availability which doesnt allow you to work everyday theyll make you feel so bad and coerce you to make it more open so its more convenient for them. The team has been leaving like dropping flies they don't reward seniority nor hard work mainly those that are the "favorites" and oh dear are there ever some favorites. Dress code is okay though kind of odd that you cant wear leggings, for a store that's like 40 percent lounge and activewear it's not really open to wearing those products expect on the set theme days. Pros would be the three store discount at ON, Gap, and BR, however at old navy now most things are overpriced or everyday magic to which you employee discount wont apply. Cons they dont realize it's a retail job and they expect everyone to have put it above and beyond your own needs while still paying less than ever, you can rarely call in again my managers made me feel worse about being sick when I did have to call in (I've been at this job for almost 4 years first two years I rarely called off and would come in when called even if it were last minute) they often make last minute changes to the schedule and add or cut a shift nearly sometimes the day of, though you cant give your shifts away even if you have gotten them covered by someone else without being interrogated. For the managers that have made this their career dont realize that people are not like them and do have other priorities, the days - 

Points positifs

Short shifts for those that prefer it, employee discount, pet sweaters and shirts

Points négatifs

Short shifts, bad management, random consistent sceduals, rarely any vacation hours, minimal raises not even a dollar after 3 years, favoritism

Productive and fun workplace

Not enough pay to live a good life but the do workers become life long friends and management really didn’t care about you in order to accommodate outside of work

Avez-vous trouvé cet avis utile?

not worth it

The GM does not care about anyone but themselves. Most of the other managers were decent but they definitely have favorites. The GM has swore at me and made other employees cry. The GM does not care about the employees at all, even if you work there for a long time they will toss you to the side like you're nothing. Do not bust your butt for these people they only care about their own salary and their own paid time off. If you want to make a decent cheque you will have to work 25/30 days a month and working 10-12 days in a row because they will only schedule you for 4 hour shifts. If you become a lead you will do more and more work and manual labour and be micro managed and still paid minimum wage and no benefits. The only way to survive is to become a favorite.

Not a great job for student

This was my first job ever. During the interview, I was informed that I will need to be available for 28 hours per week, I found it was a little too much, but gave it a try.It wasn't bad at first. Co-workers are really nice and the managers too. But I specified on the interview that I wasn't available on Fridays, I ended up being given numerous shifts on Fridays and I didn't complain, because I thought that since I'm a newbie, I shouldn't complain, but I did feel disrespected.When the school year started, it was bareable, the number of hours was a little too much but bearable. But then it went downhill. The manager who was doing the schedule couldn't seem to understand that I am a student and don't have a lot of free time and I kept getting shifts for the whole week-end. Then I got shifts for a couple of days straight. I hated it. With school and the amount of shifts I was getting I could barely breath. With time, the job became so boring. I dreaded each time the moment I will need to go to work, because I knew I would hate it. Overworked and underpayed. Also, you better have a good reason to be missing a shift, because otherwise they don't believe you.

Points positifs

Nice coworkers, free snacks from time to time

Points négatifs

Boring

Good to get a fire under your behind

If someone you know is substantially lazy and/or unmotivated in life, send them here. You have to watch your every move as any little mistake can cause a scalding from management (e.i. Taking break 1 minute late, not knowing where something goes (even if you have no experience with the department), etc). You’ll learn quick to watch your own back and keep better pace with your tasks. If you need a beginner job this is a great place to get a fire under your behind & get motivated, once you got that fire, run on out because there are infinitely more lax management staff out there.

Points positifs

Become Motivated & gain Experiece

Points négatifs

Not very flexible, strict management, stressful work environment

Under paid

I worked there for a little over a month and I was underpaid. Yes! I mean UNDER MINIMUM WAGE!!!! I got scheduled for 4hr30mins sifts all the time but when my paycheck came in, I wasn't getting paid for the last 30mins of my shift. I worked 14 hours but got paid for 10, the pay for the last 30 minutes from 4 shifts were caught off. Also, i didn't get paid for the training like at all. When I called employee services, they kept me on hold for 20 minutes and did nothing about my complaints. They didn't fix the issue with my pay and they seem to care.

Points positifs

flexible schedule

Points négatifs

Get scheduled for 4hrs30mis but you only get paid for 4hrs and the 30mins is just unpaid labour.

Lots of favouritism from managers

I would dread going to each and every shift because of new management. They have their favourite employees and it is very evident if you are not one of them. However, if you are one of them you will get more opportunities given to you regardless of how long you've worked there. Anyone that is not the favourite will get stuck with the job that no one wants to do. Also if you need to book time off your request will most likely be declined no matter how far in advance you booked it off unless you are a favourite. A couple of the managers are very rude and make sure to show you that they are superior to you and it makes you upset. There is no opportunity to grow with the company so I would suggest finding a different part time job that doesn't make you feel under appreciated for all that you do for them. They also expect you to be available for 28 hours a week but will cut your shifts a couple hours before you start so there's no guaranteed hours which is kind of a pain.Overall, management does not care about their employees, they only care about the company so you will likely get thrown on the back burner for most of your shifts until they need you. The only thing that kept me around for so long were my coworkers and the discount but other than it was not a fun place to be and leaving was one of the best decisions I've made.

Discount, Coworkers

Toxic Environment

No support from management and expectations are unrealistics. You are only good in the management book when you say yes all the time but when you say no they treat you like garbage.

Employee discount

Points négatifs

No support from management

work is great, management isn’t

speaking from the chinook location calgary, management team isn’t that great. there’s a lot of gossip, don’t treat employees well. if you avoid the drama, work is great lol. but it can be very toxic

Points positifs

employee discount is good, coworkers are really nice to be around

Points négatifs

they hide a lot of info, gossip about employees, can be toxic

Not worth it

With all it can offer, it is not worth what the company and leadership will do to your soul. Almost no free time. Want you available 24/7 even when you aren’t working. Offers zero help to advance. Chaotic and toxic. Someone in your family can pass away and they will call you every day to work??

Points positifs

Benefits

Points négatifs

Long hours. Horrible schedule. Discrimination.

Great people/company to work with!

My overall experience was really positive. The management was really good to their employees. it was a good place to learn. None of the staff minded when asked questions even if you ask the same one more than once. I really enjoyed my time at Old Navy. I recommend anyone to work there because of the welcoming, easy learning environment. some of the daily tasks I did were: - handling returns/transactions (is very easy to learn)- daily disinfecting/cleaning routines (COVID) - folding clothes and putting them in their homes- assisting customers- every couple of months you would do inventory which is quite fun. you stay with all the staff after closing hours and go through all of the clothing

Points positifs

big discount on clothes, welcoming enviroment, good place to learn

Points négatifs

standing for long periods of time

The management wasn’t great

overall it was an okay just but a couple of the management staff were not great. they belittled and talked down to coworkers and they would actively gossip about coworkers in the back office where other people could hear them. made working there stressful. (loved two of the managers though)

Points positifs

snacks! flexible hours!

Points négatifs

Garbage

I got a job there. Had maybe four shifts. They didn’t give me a schedule beyond that. Almost two weeks go by and I don’t hear anything till I got a call saying I was supposed to work that day. Which of course no one told me. So either they didn’t notice I wasn’t there for two weeks or the 20hrs a week I was promised was an extreme exaggeration. The sales associates were nice, in the little bit I actually got to talk to them that is. Management was an absolute mess though. Which I could actually tell right away. Also very little training, my first day I had to wait 30 minutes till someone was free to train me, as no one was aware I was gonna need training or maybe even be there.

Points positifs

Free masks, nice sales associates

Points négatifs

Everything else

Sales Associates

As a sales associates you can be a cashier, helping customers on the sales floor, sometimes wiping down fitting rooms (due to COVID), answering calls from customers about the product in-store. In terms of management, I was lucky enough to have a very nice team where my managers were very kind and understanding. The hardest part of the job is learning the tiny stuff like looking for items using the iPods or the tablets; as well as the unexpected inquiries from customers. A busy day can get stressful especially when there are 4-5 customers asking you for sizes or inquiring about different things. Another thing is depending on how clean/messy the store location is, on busy days it can be a hassle to fold clothes down and pick up things off of the floor (so don't work here if you don't like bending down all the time). This job is not recommenced for people who easily get tired because as a sales associates you're always on your feet. This job is great teens and/or those trying to get their feet wet into the workplace and gain some experience.

Points positifs

On special occasions like Christmas or Black Friday, you get donuts

Points négatifs

Long hours, high expectations from managers.

Amazing coworkers and friends

I had an amazing time at Old Navy until the availability policy changed and the management changed as well. This job is not ideal for students anymore. The managers also have favourites and it is clear to see. I didn’t feel like I got recognized for my efforts. I only had a hard time quitting because of my amazing friends who are like my family. I also didn’t receive any opportunities to grow, train other employees or be recognized as someone who has experience.

Points positifs

Best coworkers

Points négatifs

Availability policy

With proper management decisions they can become a good company to work for again.

When I first started, it was a great experience and it was fun working there. After a couple of management changes, the atmosphere and work environment changed and it showed in the employees. Everyone started to look miserable. The management puts to much strain on their "trusted" employees and expects to much from them. There is no real room for advancement in the company. They are just willing to schedule you more hours with no pay increase.

Points positifs

Discount

Points négatifs

Poor management decisions with a lot of manager turnover

High demands with little support

Expected to give 150% and get 0 support. Be ready to work whenever they decide they need you if it’s back to back crazy shifts so be it. Expectation is to deliver multi million dollar business on zero budget basically you’re run off your feet on a regular basis.

Points positifs

Overworked & undervalued

Points négatifs

Short turn around for back to back shifts
