    I worked at Banana Republic

    Pros

    The name looks good on a resume
    It's a nice looking place to work, stores look nice
    Dress code is annoying, but people look like they belong there

    Cons

    Selling the credit card
    Getting reprimanded for not selling the card
    Crazy managers
    Folding the men's and women's denim wall
    Don't start cleaning up until the store is closed, so no chance of getting out of there at a reasonable time
    No sales training!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hated this job, but not because of management. People at my store often complained about our manager, but I guess I was one of her favorites because I never had a problem with her. I had this job when I was 17 and was not trained at all! We had to push that stupid credit card, even in rough economic times. Even though I hated the job, BR is a great name to have on a resume because other companies are aware of their customer service standards, which has helped me get other jobs.
