I worked at Banana Republic part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible hours, time and a half on holidays, great policies for employees and a culture that values respect. There are ocassional incentives from the company like free lunch or candy and prizes for meetting certain goals.

Cons

Selling the bananacard is really annoying and there is too much pressure to meet goals.the
Pay isn't great either.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lay off the credit card goals a bit because it can encourage unethical behavior.make sure everyone is treated equally. The occasional visits from corporate do not tell the full picture of what goes on in the store. Those standards should be upheld at all times.

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

    Pros

    50% off discount, including gap, and similar discounts for piperlime, athleta, and oldnavy. Many hours are available to work, including early mornings or late evenings. Many tasks available to complete to help pass time.

    Cons

    Locked into availability given out during interview, micromanaging supervisors, rare increases in wage, almost no way to work your way up, not paid enough to do what is expected; especially with credit card sales shoved down our throats. It was also expected for us to work just about every weekend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay us more, allow for upward mobility, respect your employees.
