I worked at Banana Republic part-time (less than a year)

Pros

When we had actual customers, they were fun to work with and help dress. I enjoyed being around my other sales associates and working as a cashier.

Cons

Managers were very disorganized and unhelpful. They would spend most of their time in the back and whenever a customer want to speak to one of them, it would take them forever to actual come out to speak to them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to hire new managers. The ones at that location aren't there because they want to and you can really tell.

    I worked at Banana Republic part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Employee discount is nice and preview of all sales before the occur.
    Clientele is a step above most which makes it more pleasant to help them.
    Flexible hours due to a larger number of employees

    Cons

    High pressure environment, often not recognized for out of the box thinking or extra effort.
    Very high turnover on employees
    Scheduling can often be last minute and lack of a more defined work schedule 2-3 weeks out makes planning outside of work more difficult.

    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.
