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

Pros

Great discount, great employees, great atmosphere, and I enjoyed interacting with the customers and getting to help them decide what they like and what they don't.

Cons

I did not like having to work for less during the holidays, but I would say that there are minimal cons. I enjoyed the staff a lot.

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

    Pros

    The camaraderie amongst the dissatisfied employees.
    50% merchandise (although minimum wages made it virtually impossible to ever be able to purchase the merchandise...).
    Understanding that I was balancing school & work...was able to work my schedule around my classes with ease.

    Cons

    Literally every SINGLE shift manager was a nightmare. They were never satisfied and would constantly give negative feedback on performance. I don't think I was ever given a positive critique. There was a lot of favoritism and those working in my position were highly disregarded as human beings.
    The badgering about Banana cards was relentless! My hours were cut for two weeks because I was 1 Banana card short of meeting my quota.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have respect for each and every person! Whether they're a lead cashier or a sales assistant, in the back folding sweaters to put back on the floor....give all employees equal respect!
    And perk up management, life isn't that terrible!!

    I have been working at Banana Republic full-time

    Pros

    Salary was the best part

    Cons

    Horrible upper level leadership. Who you know not what you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate upper level leadership and what they stand for. Gap inc foundation is valuing their people. There should be consistency throughout the company not state based.
