Too much focus on Banana Cards

Brand Ambassador (Current Employee)
Arlington, VA

I have been working at Banana Republic part-time for more than a year

ProsThe managers for all Gap Inc. Companies are trained to be polite to their employees. The discount is GREAT!

ConsMangers start going wayyyyyy over board on the focus of Banana Republic credit cards. They get paid more when the store gets more. They begin to cut your hours if you are not reaching your "goal." It takes away the focus of selling and instead they want you to be a pest!
Also during the summer months, when customer volume is low, you get a pitiful amount of hours

It's retail, what do you expect

Sales Associate (Current Employee)

I have been working at Banana Republic part-time for less than a year


Pros: One of the best things is the great 50% discount on full priced items.… Cons: There is no way you will have weekends and evenings to yourself. The worst though is that you are constantly pushed… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
