JOB STATUS: Full-time
Old Navy makes current American fashion essentials accessible to every family. From day one, Old Navy was a revolution. We were something the world had never seen - fabulous, affordable fashion. We didn't take ourselves too seriously, and we broke the industry's rules. What we believe in today is exactly what we believed in when we started: we’re on a mission to democratize fashion and make shopping fun again. We opened our first store in 1994 in San Francisco and have been on a roll ever since. Today, customers can find their must-have fashion essentials online as well as in one of our 1,000+ stores located globally.
As part of the Field organization, you make the brand come to life for our customers. Our stores are fast paced, fun, diverse and full of passionate people who love fashion. The Field offers endless opportunities to grow your career and be a leader – of your peers, of teams, of a business, and in the community.
Old Navy – a brand for everyone, a place for you!
As the Senior Business Operations Manager, you drive profitable sales growth by connecting people to product. You do this by ensuring your store is appropriately staffed through selection, training and deployment of Brand Associates. In partnership with your General Manager and the Department Managers, you are responsible for creating effective schedules that meet the needs of the business. You lead through your team in execution of all standard operating procedures and create the conditions for your team to operate at maximum efficiency and productivity. As a senior leader in the building, you are expected to lead the leadership team in the absence of your General Manager. This is a critical leadership role within your store, leading both direct and indirect reports to positively impact the team, operations and profitability of your store. You effectively maneuver through the complexity of leading in a higher-volume environment and apply proactive problem solving to meet the needs of a dynamic business. Success in this role means your store has a consistently well-staffed, trained and engaged team supported by strategic schedules that maximize performance and support business needs.
As an Old Navy leader, your first priority is to contribute to the success of your store. This means that you not only deliver in your role as the Senior Business Operations Manager, but you also model leadership behaviors and deliver as a manager on duty. As the Manager on Duty, you deliver results during your assigned time, drive key performance indicators and brand loyalty by leading through your team. You make decisions and collaborate with other members of your store leadership team to prioritize work based on business needs and company direction.
