    I have been working at Banana Republic full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Can be a steady job schedule for elevated associates or managers

    Cons

    Very little to no pay raises, no hours for sales associates if store not meeting sales goals. Hours can be very tough on non sellers; overnights, late nights, early mornings, shipment, floor set, windows and visuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support, praise, care and encourage your employees. They will treat the store as you do.

    It was very nice to go to work here as it was a friendly, upbeat escape from the drabs of an office job.

    I have been working at Banana Republic part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company is very supportive of volunteer work and getting involved in the community. They also take good care of their employees by providing treats on occasion and having contests with prizes.

    Cons

    The work can be very tiring and monotonous. One can only enjoy folding clothing for so long before they want to get out of there. Also, the company requires that each employee greets every customer even if they've already been greeted several times, which is found by a reasonable person to be quite irritating, both for the employee, and also the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please understand that most customers like to be said "hello" to, but they get slightly offended and irritated when people are constantly asking if they need help. Most customers are less likely to stay in the store if they can't shop without being bothered too much.
