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

    Pros

    Short shifts
    Cool co workers
    Laid back environment

    Cons

    Crappy managers who would stay in their offices all day while we busted our butts on the sales floor
    There were also your typical slackers who would get away with murder, but because they were friends with the boss they would not get written up.
    They REQUIRE open availability like most retailers so be prepared to not have any flexible in your life outside of Banana Republic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now that everyone on the sales floor is underneath one job title (Sales Associate), It makes it hard to get everything done properly. Most employees are burned out or they chose to leave the company just like I did back in 2011 before the big change. Open your eyes and look at you high turnover rate. It's that way for a reason.

    Pros

    Benefits and support is outstanding, best I've ever had

    Cons

    Policy changes almost monthly... It becomes difficult to keep staff on track especially in high volume 300+ staff stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always push back...
