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.

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

    Pros

    Easy to ask for time off or change of schedule

    Cons

    Feels like a sweatshop, you can't even interact with other employees while on the floor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should treat its employees with respect, and allow them to complete their tasks without micromanaging the way the do it. They often act like drill sargeants rather than co-workers.

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

    Pros

    The employee discount was great and I enjoyed the day to day tasks of organizing the sales floor and helping customers. Banana Republic as a whole is a great company, this location, though, was not.

    Cons

    The managers pushed the Banana Cards way too much. The amount you made in sales did not matter for a day, if you did not sell a Banana Card. They also were horrible about scheduling shifts. I am a fulltime student and asked to work less than 20 hours a week. For two months they regularly scheduled me for 35 hours a week! I asked them repeatedly to stop, but eventually I just had to quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to worker needs!
