Sale Associate (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 20 November 2017
I learned many things, I have learned how to mange costumers which gained me to communicate with costumers. During my work experience at old navy they taught we skills and knowledge of things I will need in working.

For the few months I have been working here, and it being my first retail job, this job is as cool as I expected. I've been wanting to work retail for some time now and I'm happy that Old Navy gave me the opportunity for this. The management is very cool, they bring you in pretty easily, on my orientation day there just happened to be a little party, nice first impression. Even when we're busy (which is very frequently because of my location and the nature of Old Navy) the management could be mostly laid back. Day to day is also what you'd expect, just at a faster pace. It is pretty overwhelming especially for a newcomer but they would not welcome you if they didn't think you were ready. The hardest part is all of the traffic and trying to keep up with the volume of the store, the most enjoyable part are the other employees which cushion the job in a very pleasant way.
Lead Cashier (Current Employee) – Pointe-Claire, QC – 9 November 2017
Good people to work with, but expectations are not always clear. management cares about the employees but there is constant change in leadership. Constant change in policy regarding days off/holidays which can be confusing as most of the employees are part-time.

The expectations of the managers be that you are available 24/7 which does not give you the availability to have a work/life balance. They are not flexible about this part of the position but they do not tell you about this expectation/requirement until after you are offered the role. They are very disorganized regarding scheduling as well which makes the ability to be available 24/7 very difficult if you have any restrictions in your life (take transit, have children or pets that require care when you are working, have requests for time off).
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 2 November 2017
Old Navy was an easy job, you go in and fold clothes or do whatever your manager told you to do. One of my managers was pretty rude, but otherwise, it wasn't bad. It wasn't lively and we couldn't talk to each other at all. Discount is great.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 19 October 2017
Old Navy is a very friendly place to work. The managers are understanding and helpful and they will go out of their way to help you. I would highly recommend working for Old Navy. The only problem I have with working with Old Navy is the fact that they have these huge stores and so many employees but they don't have enough radios, they don't have a big enough lunch room for staff, everyone has to share lockers.
nice staff, good hours, good pay, good chances of moving up.
small break room, not enough radios or lockers, way too many employees.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 14 October 2017
Old Navy is a workplace that provides work opportunities to diverse people. But there are very few hours given- 3 hours in a whole week despite giving a whole week availability. You're stuck being a Sales Associate forever, with not many opportunities to advance in career. Not worth it. Find another job. Oh, and managers threaten to fire people on a regular basis without attempting to understand other circumstances that impact how they work!
Treats on special days ( New Year etc.)
Less hours, next to none career advancement opportunities.
Business and Training Specialist (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 4 October 2017
There is absolutely not enough respect or care in this location for it to be worth working there. Being in the company for many years, I have learned a lot but nothing is worth the stress that the company hands you. The culture and the environment is toxic and drains you of your energy.
