I have been working at Banana Republic full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Discount, friendly coworkers and a good sense of teamwork.

Cons

Higher expectations than reasonable. Selling incentives ditched for a "C.A.S.H. (customers appreciate service here)" program, but because the target goals were so high and ridiculous, our team made it once in 12 months. Management completely out of touch with employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better communication is essential. Follow up more frequently.

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

    Pros

    The coworkers can be fun. Closing the store and staying later after close can be a lot of fun (also true for working a shipment in the morning.) The style of clothing is great, so is the quality. The employee discount is also very nice, especially since it works at GAP and Old Navy as well.

    Cons

    I had pretty low hours initially, but once I was there for a while they started to pick up. The problem is when you get too close to 40hrs a week without actually being full-time, they have to cut you back to avoid having to change you to full-time status (which would include benefits).
