Brand Associate (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 21 February 2018
The management is terrible, they don't give you instruction but get mad when you take initiative, they schedule your shifts 3:45 so that they don't have to legally provide breaks and will schedule you multiple times in one day
SALES ASSOCIATE/CASHIER (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 11 February 2018
Working here probably gave me the best work experience I've had in a while. The biggest aspect I took away from Old Navy was the team and how quickly they brought me into the family. Everyone looked out for each other and made sure we all worked to our full potential.
It is a nice place to work but very irriatating and tiring at times
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 9 February 2018
Old navy is a nice place to work but it can be very irritating and tiring at times. The actual tasks at hand are very easy to do but the management team is very unfriendly and many of the employees fine them unapproachable and find it very unpleasant to work there.
Cashier/Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 February 2018
Great place for a customer service job which will teach you about the basics about a retail environment. Friendly staff and customers made this place a real joy to work at. Just like any other retail work they have their ups and downs in volume and busyness. One thing that did not appeal to me was the lack of hours and shifts available which is a main reason why I decided to leave.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – St. Vital, MB – 30 January 2018
The staff is treated very unfairly. You not trained properly and expected to do things above and beyond your role. There is constant drama between the managers and there is never any clear plan to make the store a better place
Sellebrity' Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 24 January 2018
My first job for a whole year, but I definitely wanted to go before then.
Management is okay and relaxed, but favoritism is easily noticed. Because it's usually a stepping stone job, there's always new staff coming and current staff quitting, so you don't get to make a lot of solid relationships. Training is also very brief as they throw you in without any guidance much afterward. They want you to think for yourself but at the same time, not do the wrong thing without telling you what not to do.
However, it's a lot of fun during busy seasons or special sale days; everyone gets to be more festive and there's potlucks in the lunch room. It's also an easy first job since you don't do that much besides fold and hang everything.
Fun busy seasons, time off requests are easy, relaxed management
Brand Associate (Current Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 20 January 2018
You'll only get hours if they like you, otherwise will continuously give you zero hours until you quit. They will give you a 15 minute break on a 5 hour shift and then force you to clock out early to avoid Labour Law violation. They do not pay the minimum 3 hours for work and claim that they do it because employee volunteered to go home early, despite employees not knowing this rule.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 19 January 2018
Was a good enviornment to work in with very friendly staff. Came in to work and would start my shift by checking in with the manager on duty then i would begin to fold clothes, replenish clothes and also work on cash.
Cleaner/Janitor (Current Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 17 January 2018
At least once a week they will add or cancel a shift. They do not give enough notice, commonly less that 12 hours notice. They call at 9:30pm to add a 6:00am shift. There was once a span of 8 days when they cancelled three of my shifts and I was left with one three hour shift (it was our off season so sales were not well, but not excused)
STOCK SUPERVISOR/TRAINING AND OPERATIONS MANAGER (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 15 January 2018
There is a lot of repetitive work and redundancies that need to be worked out on a day to day level. The Management on a whole are pretty awesome however it vastly differs by location. The amount of part time employees per store is over the need of the business which leaves a lot of employees without work for up to 2 weeks at a time.
1 hour lunch breaks and paid 15 min breaks per 9 hour shift
