    Former Employee - Sales Associate Part Time, Seasonal

    I worked at Banana Republic

    Pros

    Employee discounts were generous but can't be used for online merchandise. Coworkers were friendly. Managers were courteous and fair.

    Cons

    I would have liked to work more hours but our store generally didn't have high traffic.

  2.  

    Great place to get experience in retail.

    Pros

    For a part time job, it's great to be making more than minimum wage. The Gap Company really knows how to take care of their employees. Paid breaks and fair frequency of breaks.

    Cons

    Hours between employees can sometimes be difficult. Personal growth is difficult at times.

    Pros

    Friendly staff, decent pay, helpful in learning, great employee discount

    Cons

    Part-time doesn't get many hours over the summer due to the high number of new part-time hires, in order to compensate for college students leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. They were great at making everyone feel comfortable and happy to come to work. Encouraged a family feel.

    I worked at Banana Republic

    Pros

    good discount on all gap brands.

    Cons

    The schedule here is horrible. They give you many on call shifts and few scheduled hours. For on calls you have to call the store 2 hours before the shift were to start to find out if they can afford to take you. Sometimes they even call you on the days you are schedules to let you know they wont be needing you.
