I have been working at Banana Republic part-time

Pros

easy tasks, most customers are nice, co workers are nice as well

Cons

Managers expect you to open new credit cards every day even though most people do not want to. Managers pressure the employees too much.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote internally. The people that have been working there longer know the business better than people that are being hired for management from stores like target and sears.

    I worked at Banana Republic part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Made some of my best friends. Great discount. Bettered my Spanish.

    Cons

    Managers under stress created stressful situation for associates, micro-managed associates. Horrible pay, horrendous raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand it's numbers driven business but one must use their common sense and see talented associates. Listen to feedback from the sales associates, they're on the floor and work directly with the company. You say so yourself, "They're the face of the company."

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

    Pros

    Wonderful discount and working with great people, especially the leadership team. Easy product to sell because it is well made and fashionable.

    Cons

    Same as any other retail job: inconsistent hours, low pay, and working on or around holidays. No commission for clothes sales, sadly, but small amount for credit cards sold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, an enjoyment to work with.
