The employees and customers are great. Management is good but very young which affects decisions.

Pros

Discount and the people we work with every day.

Cons

It is difficult getting promoted because existing mgmt gets priority over those trying to move up. Pay is low

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We need to be paid for our merit and get raises that reflect that or at least keep up with the cost of living increases. Promotions would be done by merit not by seniority. And the merchandiser at headquarters need to have a better working knowledge of the store. The timing of when and how things are done often does make sense.

    I have been working at Banana Republic

    Pros

    I love the people that I work with, the company does a good job with choosing good people for the most part. Also like that our jobs aren't as clear cut as, say, at an Old Navy -- for the most part I'm a cashier but there are times that I'm asked to sell or that I'm asked to work in back of house.

    Cons

    Not really much room to move up unless you plan on jumping into a full-time managerial position. Company also isn't great about raises... from what I can tell the most they tend to give at one time is 25 cents or so an hour and that evaluation only occurs once a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On a national level the company needs its leaders to understand the stores and employees so that they know how their decisions will affect the company on a more local level.
