I worked at Banana Republic part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Fun place to work, amazing managers, can request days off, often breaks, 50% off card that works at Banana and Gap, 25% off Old Navy and 20% off a online shoe store that I think starts with a P. I was promoted to a men's seller within 2 weeks of employment. Before the promotion I was on the NonSales team. NonSales do not interact with customers as much as Sellers do. NonSales spend their day boardfolding, running throwbacks ( means to put clothing that was left in the fitting rooms back on the shelf) and just making sure the store is up to standards ( meaning all clothing and products are exactly where they belong.) Bring good shoes because sometimes you will be folding for a long time, if your tall your back might start hurting from being bent all day. A Seller is probably the best position you can get. You walk the store and see if anyone needs help. You run product checks on the computer and use your walkie talkie to talk to the stock room incase you need a product. You really don't need any knowledge of clothing because you will learn everything on the job. Don't take this position if your not comfortable speaking with people! On a Saturday our store could make $60,000 easy.

Cons

Rude snobs as only the more wealthier people tend to shop here. It is slow Monday thru Thursday. You have to solicite a company card to customers. You are on call at least once a week. Low pay ($8.25), some female employees don't like each other.

Advice to Management

Treat ALL your customers with respect. I felt that whites received better service than anyone else.

    Pros

    Very progressional environment. The management team are supportive and respectful. BR incorporates a lot of social work and different activities around the year, everyday is a different day with different events and promotion. Competitive pay and options to move up.

    GOOD BENEFITS AND DISCOUNTS!

    Cons

    Hard to move from sales associate to a leadership role, Sometimes information is concealed. Payroll issues and suspicious time-clock editing by managers.

    Competition with other co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    When you visit the stores, talk to sales associates in private and asks them about the true environment of the store and management team.

    Be truthful, be clear and do not conceal information that creates mistrust.
