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

Pros

I made a lot of friends while working here. As long as your productive and work with fellow employees and leaders who are just as hard working you will enjoy working for BR.

Cons

Management does not care about employee needs and concerns and workers start to feel unappreciated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't think of the employees as numbers and show recognition where its due.

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

    Pros

    you get a good discount is you make enough money to buy something, coworkers are all pleasent to work with

    Cons

    opinions are not valued what so ever. the work hours are usually terrible and unless you show promise you probably will not get schedualed as much

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your employees. organizing the back of the store is just as important as organizing the from. and think of a way to motivate your employees with ways other than a candy bar.

    I worked at Banana Republic part-time for 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!!
