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

Pros

Discount at 3 brands
15 minute breaks
Very flexible schedules
Employee opinion surveys
Employee appreciation month

Cons

Depending on whether you are at an underperforming store or at a flagship, you're experience can either be good or bad. Because of "the power of yes", managers can pick and choose which policies they feel like adhering to that day. No one is ever on the same page.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This free- for-all environment causes a lot of confusion and double work.

    Pros

    At my store we have very good connections among employees and managers. We have all been working together for quite some time now so we can communicate without communicating. The employee discount is wonderful. Normally understanding about time requested off, have rarely had problems requesting time off.

    Cons

    Hours. Working with some customers who think they own the store and treat you like gum under their shoe. Politics in the workplace that happen. Favorites are definitely chosen and that is reflected in hours and treatment at work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To not combine family matters at the workplace, your partner should not be allowed to work with you.

    Pros

    Great benefits and great experience. There is a lot of great talent within BR stores.

    Cons

    Long hours- underpaid for the high level of turnover and meeting the demands of retail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leverage internal talent. Pay well to keep your most talented employees from leaving. Restructure performance reviews.
