I worked at Banana Republic part-time for 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 have been working at Banana Republic part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good discount across all brands. Good mix of people, can make friends for life.

    Cons

    Opening credit cards is all they care about. Have to get 5/month to get hours. Trained customers to only shop with a coupon, thus bringing in a totally new customer base with no taste or manners or money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spell check is available on every software, run before the stuff is made/printed and hits the stores to notice a mistake.

    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
