Too much focus on Banana Cards

Pros

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

Cons

Mangers 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

    Pros

    One of the best things is the great 50% discount on full priced items. They tend to be fairly flexible with scheduling, and the work isn't anything too challenging.

    Cons

    There is no way you will have weekends and evenings to yourself. The worst though is that you are constantly pushed to sell our card to customers, to the point where you realize your value is measured in card applications you generate.
