Pros

You get a decent amount of hours, learn some great customer service skills and meet some pretty cool people.

There is a real focus on selling the credit card. It can be frustrating at times.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with, great discount across 3 brands, good development training

    Cons

    Too much grey area for associates to manage, poor pay, retail hours - much longer than the store is open, too many company coupons and discounts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give associates the power to say yes rather than having to get approval from management. Pay your associates fairly for what they bring to the table. Way to corporate - the customer isn't always right! And if you want them to be then tell the employees that it is ok to give them what they want.

    I worked at Banana Republic full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great product, great partners in corporate an non executive level, store teams are passionate
    Work/life balance is good.
    Benefits and paid time off is good

    Cons

    Gap Inc has become very political. It is very much about who you know as opposed to the type of results you produce. If you are not a "Yes" person your chances to grow will be limited.
    More focus is put on Brand Credit Card than the product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop posturing for each other and recognize leaders for the results they are producing!
